Come Follow Me Sketchnotes
James; November 18-24
“Be Ye Doers of the Word and Not Hearers Only”
I am feeling all inspired and excited after the awesome Face to Face meeting last night. How about you? Are you excited to set some goals; whether or not you have children and youth in your home?
If you missed the meeting, I highly recommend that you watch it, if only for the delightfully sweet vocal solo from the little boy at the end. Oh, my heart!
I’m looking forward to a great week of family Come Follow Me study!
Here’s our family’s study plan for the week:
Monday: Read CFM introduction + discuss who James was
Thursday: Read James 3: 9-14. Serve sour/bitter food and a sweet treat and discuss the difference.
Friday: Read James 4:5-8
Saturday: Read James 5:14-16
Sunday: Weekly Wrap-up/ Catch-up. 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.
