Come Follow Me with Living Scriptures: We Are Responsible for Our Own Learning


Become a Little Better

We Are Responsible for Our Own Learning | Dec 26-Jan 1

It’s a brand new year! This year we’ll be learning about the New Testament. A lot happens to the Israelites between the Old and New Testaments. The people have to decide whether to follow the Lord or follow the traditions of the new civilizations that move into their area.

In this lesson, we learn that we are responsible for our own learning and our own testimonies. Think about ways you can improve your gospel learning and strengthen your testimony during the coming year. As we study the life of Christ this year in the New Testament, try to come to know Him better and listen for what He teaches you.

As you learn you’ll have more questions. Be sure to seek understanding from God, act in faith, and keep an eternal perspective.

One tradition many people have at the beginning of a new year is to make resolutions to improve themselves. As you think about doing better in the new year carefully select resolutions that will help you to live your life as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 7:7

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:


  • What is a resolution?
  • What are some of the resolutions we can make that will help us live happier lives?
  • What will help us keep these resolutions?
  • If you break a resolution, should you give up and stop trying?


“Let us all try to stand a little taller, rise a little higher, be a little better. Make the extra effort. You will be happier.” Gordon B. Hinckley
