I will cherish and rely on the revelations of God in scripture and the inspired words of Latter-day prophets.

Remember: While you absolutely may do every activity suggested if you would like, it is certainly not needed, nor are you limited by the ideas given here. Choose one or more that will work with your learning style, available time, or the group that you are working with. Even if you are an adult, don’t hesitate to choose an activity originally aimed at children—those can be the most fun!

Feel free to run with any other ideas that come to your mind! Allow the Lord to guide you in choosing the best activities for you. The ultimate goal is to engage with the material and become a “doer of the word.”

  • If this is your first week here, welcome! Please review our Welcome & How to Join the Quest” for some helpful information on how to use this resource. You may also want to check out the Embark on the Journey section of Lesson 1 for some activities that will be helpful in getting you started on this quest. In particular, you’ll want a journal, and perhaps the “I Am a Latter-day Nephite” resolution and a fun Book of Mormon reading chart. Just start where you are in the year—don’t feel like you have to backtrack and do every lesson, but grab these helpful tools and you’ll be good to go from here!
  • If you choose to download or purchase a designed cardstock version of the “I’m a Latter-day Nephite” resolution, you may want to post it where you will see it every day—on the fridge or your mirror, for example. Ponder on this month’s statement “I will cherish and rely on the revelations of God in scripture and the inspired words of Latter-day prophets.”
  • Study “The Living Christ” this week. 
    • Consider putting a copy of The Living Christ as a centerpiece in your Easter decorations this year.
    • Visit The Living Christ Project for resources on memorizing The Living Christ, including visuals, phone wallpapers, music, and more.
  • As Latter-day Saints, we celebrate Resurrection Sunday (Easter) with other Christians around the world. The Jewish people, who still identify with their Israelite heritage, celebrate Passover, like Christ did in the days leading up to His crucifixion and resurrection. This year, Passover is Monday, April 22, 2024. As an Israelite, this is your heritage as well, and you might want to consider preparing to celebrate a Passover dinner with your family or friends for Family Home Evening. Here are some resources for more information and ideas on how to celebrate:
