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: Free Choose Kindness Hand Embroidery Pattern

 Free floral hand embroidery pattern

Choose Kindness


It's A Lively Hope Stitching Club day!

Today I'm sharing a beautiful floral design, with a phrase I've been repeating to my kids (and myself) a lot lately.

Choose Kindness.

This is a common refrain in our home.  My kids are strong-willed and short tempered (wonder where they got that from?) and they bicker and full-out fight often.

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

Come Follow Me
The Word of God Grew and Multiplied
Acts 10-15

Happy Monday!

Every week I share printable sketchnotes and some awesome resources for Come Follow Me lessons.  I have found that creating a simple lesson plan makes a HUGE difference for our family.

I sit down for a few minutes each week and plan out all of the scriptures we'll read plus any additional videos or articles. That way the decision is made for us when it's time to sit down together for family scripture study.

We just pull up the list and go! Here's our plan for this week:


Monday: Read Introduction in CFM manual + Videos from Pioneers in Every Land

Tuesday: Read Acts 10 and Different But the Same by President Eyring

Wednesday: Read Acts 11:1-18 and Finding Floppy

Thursday: Read Acts 11:26 + discuss questions in CFM manual; I'm Christian!

Friday: Read Acts 12:1-17 + watch Peter's Revelation to take the Gospel to the Gentiles video

Saturday: Read Acts 14 + The Jerusalem Conference video

Sunday: Kids lead Discussion + Recap what we learned this week



For Children:

Different But the Same by President Eyring





For Adults/ Teens:

Abide in My Love by Elder Christofferson

The Correct Name of the Church by President Nelson
