One of my favorite ways to add color and variety to my scriptures and my journals is with doodles and illustrations. The power of the scriptures is multiplied if I journal/doodle while studying. The act of drawing helps to cement the words in my brain.
I created some scripture cards for you focused around the theme of Gratitude. They feature inspiring words from scripture, hymns and church leaders. In my beautiful journaling Book of Mormon from Line Upon Line, these cards fit perfectly in the gloriously large margins. If you print off your own wide margin scriptures they will fit perfectly there, too. You could also trace them into your standard size scriptures like I have done here and use colored pencil to color them so you can still read the words underneath.
These cards could be used in a multitude of ways:
- Print the cards on card stock and color them in while you count your blessings.
- Cut them out and make a mini coloring book; attach them together with a binder ring
- Use them as a tip-in in your scriptures or journal
- Send them in a letter to a friend
- Color them and tape them to your mirror as a reminder to focus on gratitude
- Trace them into your scriptures or journal
- Use them to create an image transfer into your scriptures or journal
- Use them as a template for scripture journaling
Individual cards measure approximately 3×5 inches
