Scripture journaling is a very effective way for me to gain greater insight into the verses I am studying. As a visual learner, I do not grasp information well if I just read it or just listen to it. I understand a concept much better if I can sketch out (whether on paper or in my head) how its various parts are related.
This is especially true with passages such as The Parable of the Sower. If I just read those words, they are a jumble. But if I can put them down on paper the image is clarified and cemented in my mind.
Because I know it can be difficult to jump into journaling of this type, I want to provide a little boost for those of you who may just be getting started. Download the journal page here.
I have been planning to share this scripture page with you for a couple of weeks now, but how fitting that Elder Oaks talked about this very parable in General Conference over the weekend. I can't wait to go back to my page and add in more inspired insights!
