Come Follow Me Sketchnotes: "Who Hath Ears to Hear, Let Him Hear"; Matthew 13; Luke 8, 13

Printable sketchnotes for Matthew 13; Luke 8, 13 to go along with the Come Follow Me lesson " Who Hath Ears to Hear, Let Him Hear". Use as a coloring page, trace into your scriptures/journal or print on sticker paper.


Happy Monday, friends!  I am happy to be back again with another doodle page for you! This week we will study several parables that Christ used to teach the people. This free printable page included illustrations for many of the parables mentioned this week:




I also included a drawing of the certain women, because I just love that phrase and the talk by Linda K. Burton.  It's such a powerful image to me. I'm excited to study it again!  I love to see how my simple little doodles are helping in your study of the New Testament.  Thank you for the lovely emails and messages.  It makes me so happy to hear from you!

As always, I've included some additional study resources below.  Please remember that these are intended to strengthen your family and add to your personal growth, NOT to be additional stress.  Keep it simple!

Additional Study for Teens/Adults: 

Years ago I created a sketchnotes page to go along with that parable. You can find it here.

Ideas for using weekly Come Follow Me Sketchnotes pages:

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.

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.

I'd love to see how you're using these! Take a photo and tag me on Instragram!

Printable New Testament Paper Dolls/ Journaling printables


 Free printable New Testament figures.  Use as paper dolls or add as an embellishment in your scripture journal or journaling bible.



Hello friends! I am excited to share a new set of scripture printables with you today! TheseNew Testament Paper Dolls include several figures and would be perfect to use with the Come Follow Me lesson for March 4-10 "Thy Faith Hath Made The Whole".

While these illustrations were based around the above lesson, you could use these figures for many, many stories from the New Testament. I have found that my little ones learn best when their hands are busy. These paper dolls are a perfect way to help keep your kids' attention during family scripture study or family home evening.

I recently realized a new use for these watercolor illustrations: bible journaling! Print them on sticker paper and add them to your scriptures. They look so beautiful!

You might also like my Good Timber journaling kit! Check it out here.





Figures included in this set:


  • Jesus Christ
  • Man: could be John the Baptist, or another disciple of Christ
  • Woman: could be Mary, or Peter's mother-in-law, or the widow who gave her last mite, etc.
  • Man with leprosy/bandages
  • Two boys
  • Blind Man
  • Centurion
  • Girl
  • Woman kneeling: could be woman with an issue of blood.




Supplies to make paper dolls:

Print play set (Download below)
Scissors
Laminator, if desired
Popsicle sticks, if desired
Velcro or pieces of flannel, if desired



How to make paper doll play set:

Print out the paper dolls and background.
Cut out the figures.
Laminate, if desired. This step is optional, but will help the play set last longer.
You could attach the popsicle sticks as a handle onto the puppets, but we like them better without.
You could also use velcro or a piece of flannel glued to the back of the puppets to use them on a flannel board, if desired.


New Testament journaling figures:
These figures would also be beautiful in your scripture journal or journaling New Testament. I printed a set on sticker paper and added them to my bible.  I LOVE how they turned out!



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.)  Also, make sure your buy the type of sticker paper that is appropriate for your specific printer.

Come Follow Me Sketchnotes: “These Twelve Jesus Sent Forth”// Matthew 10–12; Mark 2; Luke 7; 11 (+ additional resources)

 Sketchnotes/ traceable doodles that go along with the Come Follow Me Curriculum for Matthew  10-12; Mark 2, Luke 7,11.  Perfect for adding to your scripture journal, or tracing into your scriptures.



Friends, I have loved creating these sketchnotes printables every week! I hope they are adding to your study of the Come Follow Me curriculum.  It makes me so happy to look back though my scriptures and see all the notes I've created in the margins, and all the little doodles that relate to the topics we're studying.  



I have been so impressed by what an impact these small and simple family discussions have on our kids.  They can participate in teaching and learning the gospel!  We can learn together as a family, even if it's just for a few minutes each evening. We are far from perfect, but we are definitely learning and growing together.

Here are a few (FREE!) resources to use in your personal and family study this week!
