Family Lesson: Discipleship

January 19, 2017

I am so looking forward to this year with our theme “Come Unto Christ”. We are hoping that these family lessons will enrich your personal monthly study of each topic and allow the whole family to get involved as we all come closer to the Savior and come to know him in deeper ways. 

Thanks to our friends at The Apricot Tree for our first lesson of the year on discipleship. Even if it’s winter where you are (like me!) this lesson can be the perfect way to plan an indoor hiking experience and maybe try and feel some of that summer heat. This family lesson is all about the journey it takes us on our road to discipleship and is great for all ages. Enjoy!

 

During the Savior’s earthly ministry, He called disciples to participate in His work. He likewise extends this invitation to all of us who are willing to “take His yoke upon us, and learn of Him…” (Matthew 11:29). A disciple is a student, a follower. To be a disciple is to embark on the wonderful journey of BECOMING like the Master. Dieter F. Uchtdorf said, “Exaltation is our goal; discipleship is our journey.”

This may not always come naturally—the process is a journey. We’ve come up with this simple lesson that likens the journey to a hike. Continue Reading
