Like our last packet, this is a bit of the stretch using the ‘y’ from Younger, but whatever works, right? This is such a cool story that can be really fun to act out. Alma’s story is a great story about repentance. After all, he was the ultimate Bad Guy: son of the prophet, going around with his crew The Sons of Mosiah, telling everyone the gospel wasn’t true! Then, ground shaking moment, an angel appears and tell him to knock it off! Everyone is knocked over by shock, then The Sons of Mosiah drag poor unconscious Alma the Younger back to Daddy (who is Alma the Prophet).
As usual, I like to start out by sharing a gospel story by using the Book of Mormon Stories videos. Then you can retell the stories using the adorable paper dolls from the lovely Red Headed Hostess. This is wonderful because after you tell it, your children can narrate the story back to you! (She doesn’t have any official angel garb, but get creative!)
As you may have gathered yesterday, I’m feeling under the weather this week. I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
