Let’s talk 2021 resolutions! Mine are a little more home-focused this year because well, 2020. Keeping hope strong for good things to come, but also working on managing expectations for things within my control.
Resuscitating my Come, Follow Me study both individually and with my family is at the top of my list. If you’re anything like me and have all the gusto to create consistent gospel-centered habits, but often lack the follow-through, these resources are for you!
Our SALT Team has rounded up TEN of some of the best supplemental materials online to help you recharge your Come, Follow Me Study.
Do you love girl power? How about women spiritually supporting women? If answer=yes then Ruby Girl is the place for you. Best of all, it’s ideal for the teenage dreams in your life, too. Ruby Girl is all about helping young girls unplug from the world, sidestep Satan’s snares, and focus on living a life centered in truth.
Ruby Girl is a warrior princess personified, and you’ll LOVE what they're doing to help teen and adult women alike dive into their scriptures. Each week the One-Minute Scripture Study Podcast shares five short (we’re talking like three minutes here, girl) podcasts highlighting a point of doctrine from the corresponding curriculum, as well as a deep-dive episode on Monday’s to give you a more panoramic view of the material.
This podcast is a dream come true for busy families and we LOVE that it’s targeted toward all you sista-friends out there. Check Ruby Girl out today! Find them on IG at @rubygirlorg.

3. Kindred Kids
Are your kiddos visual learners? I’m going to answer for you: YES. Most children respond so well to visual learning. And while we love the materials from the church (all Book of Mormon heroes had KILLER abs) we’re always looking to change it up a bit.
That’s why we love Kindred Kids - this cute small business offers 51 flip cards for each standard work, one card for each week of content. Each card includes cute, colorful and modern design (sans abs) to help get your kiddos engaged and asking questions.
These cards were designed with rough-and-tumble littles in mind, so they are durable and can last you the entire year. Win! Each card includes an illustration, the lesson title, reading assignments, key scriptures and applicable challenges. And they are so cute!
