Lesson 24: Pride Within the Church — Cleansing the Inner Vessel

Set the Course

Embark on the Journey

Monthly “I Am a Latter-day Nephite” Theme!

I will bear testimony of and defend the pure foundation of the Restoration, covenanting not to forsake the Lord my God.

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 bear testimony of and defend the pure foundation of the Restoration, covenanting not to forsake the Lord my God..”
  • This week, we encourage you to watch For Our Day: Divinely Sanctioned Governments as a family or with friends. You could follow up with a discussion on the current government in the country in which you live. Where do you see principles of a divinely sanctioned government? Where do you see that your government deviates from those principles? 
  • This year, 2024, is a presidential election year for the United States of America. If you live in the USA, diligently study the candidates for each open office in the nation, your state, and local government that you will be voting for. Prayerfully consider who you should vote for and be an active citizen this year!
