Come Follow Me Sketchnotes + simple family lesson plans: The Word of God Grew and Multiplied; Acts 10-15; July 15-21

Come Follow Me
The Word of God Grew and Multiplied
Acts 10-15
July 15-21







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


Videos and Podcasts:







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!

Primary Music Flipcharts 2019 (Part 2)

2019 Latter-Day Saint Primary flipcharts to color. 

 Includes all of the songs recommended for July through December 2019.



Flipcharts are a fantastic tool to help kids learn song lyrics. And there are a lot of great options out there, but color printing can be expensive, so I've been creating these black and white flipcharts that you can color yourself.   

 Find the whole list of flipcharts I've completed here.

Actually a lot of times lately, I don't even color them and they still work just as well. :)

This collection of flipcharts contains all the songs suggested for use in Primary for July-December of 2019.  Find Part 1 here. 

This A Lively Hope Flipchart collection includes the following 18 songs:

The Hearts of the Children
Stand for the Right
I'll Walk With You
I Know My Father Lives
When I Am Baptized
The Holy Ghost
The Lord Gave Me A Temple
When We're Helping
A Child's Prayer
I Know That My Redeemer Lives
When He Comes Again
The Church of Jesus Christ
I Love to See the Temple
Search, Ponder and Pray
Tell Me Dear Lord
Kindness Begins With Me
My Heavenly Father Loves Me
Choose the Right Way
