Studying "Come Follow Me" with Family Online

#1

Post by gvine »

Wondering...
We are older, our kids are grown and have kids, we all live in different states.

We would like to have a way to share together the Come Follow Me lessons online.

FaceBook doesn't work for us.

There's Skype, but getting everyone together at one time is daunting.

Would be nice to have an asynchronous way to read and post -

I know there is Google Drive, is there a better way to do this studying online...

Thanks,
Gretchen

The outlines themselves are online, so everyone would already have access to them. You might discuss using group emails or group texts.

Do you have any electronic method of communication that you already use?

Thanks for your response.

We have recently created a Google Drive folder that we've shared for our family where we can discuss conference talks. We create a new document for each talk we want to discuss and then everyone can add quotes/comments in there. It's not the ideal solution, but it's worked decently.

I'd love to see the Church create some real social study tools. Something like https://www.everywordbible.com/home would be amazing.

My wife and children use the app "Marco Polo" to communicate almost instantly; work kinda like an old walkie-talkie: you video yourself or anything you are looking at, then post it to the group. They can in turn reply instantly if they desire or wait until later, but can see everyone's responses.
