President Hinckley has counseled parents: “Read to your children. Read the story of the Son of God. Read to them from the New Testament. Read to them from the Book of Mormon. It will take time, and you are very busy, but it will prove to be a great blessing in your lives as well as in their lives. And there will grow in their hearts a great love for the Savior of the world, the only perfect man who walked the earth. He will become to them a very real living being, and His great atoning sacrifice as they grow to manhood and womanhood, will take on a new and more glorious meaning in their lives” (quoted in Church News, 6 Dec. 1997, 2)

Week 14: Chapter 14 - Abinadi and King Noah

Book of Mormon
Chapter 14: Abinadi and King Noah

While searching for activities to go along with this particular story, I came across many Sharing Time suggestions that had the theme of Obeying the Prophets. I think a perfect activity to complement Abinadi's story is to make up some flash cards with the pictures of the First Presidency and the 12 Apostles. As you go through the cards, tell your toddler what that Apostle spoke about at the last General Conference (obviously in a VERY summarised version).

Other activities include:

Abinadi's story is quite long and important, so I would be inclined to spend two weeks going over this particular story. But I will still be back next week with the next chapter!


  1. I can't thank you enough for your blog !! It is EXACTLY what I needed. I'm full of good intentions but thanks to your help I can put them into practice : )
    I'm also the ward nursery leader and your plans will help me using the scriptures in class too.
    Thank you - you answered my prayers xx

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words. You are actually exactly what I needed this week. I sometimes wonder if it is worth continuing with my posts. And now I know it IS worth it.

    Thanks again!
