Come Follow Me Sketchnotes
1 and 2 Thessalonians
“Be Not Soon Shaken in Mind, or Be Troubled”
Hiya, friends! I’m going to be honest, things have been a little nuts around here the past few weeks. I was really sick (just a bad cold, and it’s mostly gone now) and I’m getting ready for a big trip (SO excited!) and the day after we get back from the trip I set up for Pinners Conference! (Will you be there? Come find my booth!)
The days have been so full, and it makes me so grateful that I’ve already planned out our family scripture time. It makes it so much easier to just pull things up on my phone and go!
Do we skip days in busy seasons? Yes we do. But we’d miss a lot more if we didn’t have a plan in place.
I’m excited to share another set of Come Follow Me Sketchnotes with you today!
Each week I share a quick plan for our family study. Here’s the plan this week!
Wednesday: Read 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Thursday: Read 1 Thessalonians 5:14-25 and decide on a phrase to focus on as a family.
Friday: Read 2 Thessalonians 3:13
Sunday: Weekly Recap/Catch Up on things we’ve missed; kids lead discussion.
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.
