How is your study of the Book of Mormon coming this year? I am so delighted to delve deeply into this book that I love so much. If you’d like to read about how I’m studying Come Follow Me, keep watching for a post later this week. I’m sharing all of my favorite tried and true resources!
I am loving these monthly sketchnotes posts (as opposed to weekly, like I did last year). I hope it’s working okay for you to have all the downloads for Come Follow Me in one place for the month. Doing it this way allows me to create so much more content for you in other areas: journaling videos and paper dolls and this new Character Study kit and so much more on the way!
HOW TO USE BOOK OF MORMON 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 usinga wide-margin study edition of the Book of Mormon from Line Upon Line. Our family is using their Journaling Edition for our study together as well. But there are so many wide-margin options available! Deseret Book has several great options and you can print this free PDF and have it bound at a local copy shop.)
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 Will Prepare The Way Before You” 1 Nephi 16-22

2 Nephi 6-10; “o How Great the Plan of Our God!”
Hello friends! I’m delighted to have another week of free sketchnotes for you today!
As we continue on this beautiful Come Follow Me journey, I am learning more and more about what works for our family. I told you a few weeks ago that we were going to try watching the videos from each week on Sunday mornings before church. Because we have church at 9:00, that has just not been happening consistently.
This week we’re going to try an idea sent in by an awesome reader (but I can’t recall who it was. If it was you, thank you!) We’re going to try watching the videos for the week ahead on Sunday evening. That seems MUCH more do-able and enjoyable to me! We will most likely not watch the conference talks listed each week, just the Book of Mormon videos and the other shorter videos provided.
Monday: Read CFM introduction and 2 Nephi 9:7 + Cupboard Counter
Tuesday: Read 2 Nephi 8:3-7
Wednesday: Read 2 Nephi 8:24-25
Thursday: Read 2 Nephi 9:27-44. Discus “wo” and “remember”
Friday: Read 2 Nephi 9: 28-29; 50-51
Saturday: Read 2 Nephi 9:45
Sunday: Watch all of the Book of Mormon videos for NEXT week
We Rejoice in Christ; 2 Nephi 11-25
Over the past couple of weeks I have received a few requests for more doodles and drawings in the sketchnotes, and I’ve heard you! I’m happy to oblige. The sketchnotes for this week have a BUNCH of drawings and I hope they are useful to you!
If you use my sketchnotes frequently, I’d love your support. I do enjoy being able to provide these for free to those in need. But running a website and design software costs money. And it takes me multiple hours to create the sketchnotes each week. If you are able, I’d love it if you could support A Lively Hope by buying the monthly sketchnotes bundles. You can find them here.
NOTE: Yes, the only bundle currently available is for 1 Nephi and you probably have those sketchnotes already. Purchasing the bundles in advance is not an option at this point. This is a way to help support A Lively Hope, so if you feel like the sketchnotes you’ve already used are worth a small payment, I’d be so very grateful!
Okay! On to this week’s schedule and sketchnotes!
