“What Wilt Thou Have Me to Do?”
Did you know that starting in July, the Ensign magazine includes a section called Family Study Fun? They will include a short, powerful activity for each week of the Come Follow Me curriculum.
Our family will be using these ideas as our Family Home Evening lessons on Monday evenings.
Each week I share many resources as well as our family’s plan for scripture study. Here’s what we’ll be studying this week!
Our Family’s Weekly Plan:
Monday: Read Introduction (Come Follow Me Manual) + Apostle Social Media Scroll
Tuesday: Read Stephen the Martyr A simple retelling of Acts 6-7
Wednesday: Read Bible Dictionary “Stephen”; watch The Martyrdom of Stephen
Thursday: Read Acts 8:5-25. Watch A Change of Heart
Friday: Read Acts 9:1-31. Watch Lift
Saturday: Read Acts 9:36-42 Watch Peter Brings Tabitha Back to Life
Sunday: Kids Teach the Lesson (aka, family re-cap of what we’ve learned this week)

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.
