How to use Scripture Sketchnotes:


TRACE. You can also trace these into your scriptures or journal using a light box or a sunny window.  My husband made me an awesome lightbox, but this one is a great option for you to purchase.


COLORING PAGE. Use as a coloring page for your kids to work on during family scripture time.  Write additional notes and insights on the pages as you go. You could add all the completed sketchnotes pages to a binder to keep as a reminder of the gospel topics you've discussed together.


STICKER PAPER. Print on clear sticker paper and cut apart the doodles to add to your scripture journal or into the margins of your scriptures.  (This year, I am using this free wide-margin New Testament PDF that I had printed and spiral bound at a local copy shop.  But there are many wide-margin options available.)


Printing on clear sticker paper allows you to add color to the doodles using colored pencils, but still be able to see the words beneath them.  I have tried out a few different kinds of colored pencils on this sticker paper.  Ergosoft pencils and Prismacolor pencils work really well.




I'd love your help. One way you can support my work is to SHARE IT! If you appreciate the hours I put into these free resources each week, please pin this image on Pinterest or share it on Facebook or Instagram.  It helps so much for YOU to share what you love and help others to find me.  Thank you!

A Lively Hope Stitching Club: Be Awesome Today

A LIVELY HOPE Stitching Club

Free hand embroidery pattern for June 2019


Years ago my daughter (then age 9 or so) painted a canvas for me as a Christmas gift.  It was simple but I fell in love with it instantly and hung it near our bathroom mirror where I can see multiple times a day.  The canvas simply states 

BE AWESOME TODAY.

I have been inspired by that canvas daily for five+ years.  This month I decided to help you feel a little of that inspiration with a hand embroidered version of that awesome sentiment.

This pattern is so fun to stitch!  I have instructions for how to do each of the stitches on my YouTube Channel if you have any questions.

Come Follow Me Sketchnotes: "Not As I Will, But As Thou Wilt"; Matthew 26; Mark 14; Luke 22; John 18; June 10-16

Come Follow Me Sketchnotes

"Not As I Will, But As Thou Wilt" 

 Matthew 26; Mark 14; Luke 22; John 18

June 10-16




Each week I share a page of sketchnotes for that week's Come Follow Me lessons.  I love to use these in my own scriptures as a way to help me remember the content we're studying and internalize the messages of the gospel.

I also love hearing from you and seeing how you and your children are using these pages as well as all the resources I share.  

Making a simple lesson plan for the week has been HUGE for me and the rest of our family.  Taking a few minutes at the start of each week to decide what we'll read/watch/discuss in our family scripture time has a large impact on how well those lessons actually go.  

I highly recommend that you jot down a quick plan for this week. You're even welcome to use ours!




Our Family's Study Plan:

Monday: Read Matthew 26:17-30. Watch: The Emblems of the Sacrament excerpt of a talk from Elder Holland  and discuss.


Tuesday: Read Mark 14: 32-42. Watch and discuss The Savior Suffers in Gethsemane


Wednesday: Read and discuss The Atonement



Saturday: Read Luke 22:40-46 and discuss.

Sunday: Read Luke 22:50-51 and discuss.



For Children:




Remembering Jesus: short illustrated story for younger children

The Atonement: an explanation of the Atonement





For Teens/Adults:
