Come Follow Me Sketchnotes: “God Loveth a Cheerful Giver”; 2 Corinthians 8-13, September 16-22

2 Corinthians 8-13
September 16-22
“God Loveth a Cheerful Giver”



Hey friends!

It's time for Come Follow me Sketchnotes once again!  This week we wrap up our study of 2nd Corinthians.  What have been your major takeaways from the lessons lately?

I feel like I'm learning so much more about the New Testament than I ever knew before.  I love it!

Each week I share our family's simple lesson plan with you.  We have a wide range of ages in our family, so it's hard to find a balance for teens and toddlers, but we do our best and hope that each kid finds something on their level.





Here's what we're studying this week:

Monday: Read CFM Introduction + Read 2 Corinthians 12:5-10 + Muscleman Challenge

Tuesday: Read 2 Corinthians 8:1-15 + Read The Favorite Ball

Wednesday: Read 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 and watch Thanks Be to God

Thursday: Read 2 Corinthians 10:3-7 watch Refuge from the Storm

Friday: Read 2 Corinthians 11:3 watch Are We Not All Beggars? and discuss how we can focus on the simplicity of the gospel.

Saturday: Read 2 Corinthians 9 and discuss ways we can help those in need.

Sunday: Weekly Recap. Kids lead discussion.





Additional Study for Adults:

I Was A Stranger by Linda K. Burton

Are We Not All Beggars? by Elder Holland







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.




You might also like my other sketchnotes posts.





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!

“Be Ye Reconciled to God”



 Hi!

Every week I share my hand-lettered sketchnotes that go along with the current Come Follow Me lesson. I really love drawing these pages.  I love the insights I gain as I read the scriptures deeply and pull out favorite phrases or meaningful verses to share with you.

Thank you for coming here week after week!

I sincerely hope these pages are useful for you and that they are adding to your study.

Each week I share our family's simple lesson plan with you.  We have a wide range of ages in our family, so it's hard to find a balance for teens and toddlers, but we do our best and hope that each kid finds something on their level.


Here's what we're studying this week:










Monday: Read CFM Introduction + Read 2 Corinthians 5:17 + Nature Charades

Tuesday: Read 2 Corinthians 3:1-3 and each family writes an "epistle" about how another family member has been a good example of a disciple of Christ.

Wednesday: Read 2 Corinthians 4:6-10 and watch Why do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

Thursday: Read 2 Corinthians 2:5-11 read Jesus Forgave

Friday: Read 2 Corinthians 5:6-7. What does it mean to "walk by faith, not by sight?" Watch Pure and Simple Faith

Saturday: Read 2 Corinthians 6:1-10. Watch Reclaimed.

Sunday: Read 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 + Weekly Recap. Kids lead discussion.
