Come, Follow Me


Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints follow a curriculum called “Come, Follow Me” for gospel study in church classes, with their families, and as individuals. In 2023, I’m using this curriculum to structure my study of the Book of Mormon, even though the assigned text this year is the New Testament. Here’s how that works:

  • I follow the schedule given in the manual “Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families: New Testament 2023.”
  • Each Sunday, I write an overview post, summarizing the reading, sharing some of my insights into that week’s assignment, and sharing relevant Book of Mormon passages and blog posts.
  • Monday through Saturday, I will write a post each day about themes from that week’s reading.

Here is a list of the weekly posts I’ve written so far. To read my weekly posts from prior years, go to the following links:

We Are Responsible for Our Own Learning (December 26-January 1)

As we prepare to study the New Testament in 2023, this week we’re reviewing how to acquire spiritual knowledge. Jesus expected His disciples to take ownership of their own learning process. “Whom do men say that I am?” He asked on one occasion. After hearing their answers, He asked the more…
