Structural chapter reading chart: The New Testament

Structural chapter reading chart: The New Testament

This reading chart not only helps you track your progress as you read the New Testament; it also helps you learn how the books are arranged, as well as their internal storylines. For example, based on Acts 1:8, the book of Acts has three main divisions: Jerusalem (ch. 1–7), Judea and Samaria (ch. 8–12), and the uttermost part of the earth (ch. 13–28). Likewise, the final division (the uttermost part of the earth) has four subdivisions: the...

Music practice charts

Guest post by Jelaire I made these practice charts to help our children keep track of their musical instrument practice sessions. There’s one for piano, one for violin, and one with a generic musical note, each in both color and greyscale. They have 30 numbered circles where you can put stickers as a reward for each practice session, so one chart can last about a month. We usually hang them on the fridge where the kids can see them...

Structural chapter reading chart: The Old Testament

Structural chapter reading chart: The Old Testament

Several nifty reading charts are out there for keeping track of your progress as you read the standard works (for example, they hand one out with the seminary Scripture Mastery cards). This one, however, is different because it also depicts the larger structure of the Old Testament, to help you get the big picture. Most books (the larger ones) have major and minor subdivisions. For example, Daniel subdivides neatly into two parts: history...

總會大會。 立即觀看 這個表格能幫助你在總會大會做筆記。表格上的空格除了作筆記之外,也能協助你快速紀錄新目標,讓你在大會之後記得重新讀某些演講、或是重訪某些重要的講詞。這對成人和青少年都應該是很好的資源。   我在設計這個表格的時候,設計的主要對象是我的侄子和侄女。我希望能幫助青少年更能從總會大會中有所收穫。   如果你想要看看表格的使用範例,請見網頁上的範例。(但請注意,範例是英文的內容。)   總會大會筆記 Other Languages...

2 Nephi 3—Four Josephs

2 Nephi 3—Four Josephs

Here’s a brief PowerPoint slideshow for teaching 2 Nephi 3, Lehi’s final words to his son Joseph. The slideshow is not a complete lesson; it’s just a quick review answering the question, “Who are the four people Lehi talks about who are all named Joseph?” It begins with a chart from the seminary teacher manual, listing the four verses to look out when hunting for the identity of the four people. Have the class...

Scripture Mastery: Daily class reciting

Scripture Mastery: Daily class reciting

I substituted for seminary this week, and I thought I’d pass along one small idea for anyone else out there who’s a seminary teacher or seminary class president or class member. Many seminary classes have a scripture of the week—they pick one of the twenty-five scripture mastery passages and recite it together as a class during opening exercises (reading from a large-print poster or print-out posted on the board). They do...

Geographical timeline of early Church history

Geographical timeline of early Church history

You know that Old Testament bookmark they give out in Seminary classes? That thing singlehandedly quadrupled my understanding of how the Bible stories fit together. Before seeing it, I never understood, when Moses led Israel out of Egypt, why they were slaves in Egypt to begin with. Then when I first perused that bookmark, I realized they went to Egypt during the events surrounding Joseph and his brothers. I know, I know—I could have...
