Fourteen fundamentals in following the prophet: Games and worksheets

Fourteen fundamentals in following the prophet: Games and worksheets

Ezra Taft Benson gave a terrific BYU devotional in 1980 called “Fourteen Fundamentals in Following the Prophet.” A year later, it was printed as the First Presidency message in the Liahona magazine for Church members to use all over the world in the home teaching lessons. It has since been quoted numerous times in Church manuals, magazines, and other publications, including twice in the same general conference as recently as...

Structural chapter reading chart: The Doctrine and Covenants

Structural chapter reading chart: The Doctrine and Covenants

This reading chart not only helps you track your progress as you read the New Testament; it also helps you learn the basic storyline and context of the Doctrine and Covenants, which can be helpful, since this standard work is a bit unique in that it lacks an overarching narrative. The sections are listed in numerical order (just like in the book), but they are grouped according to common themes or events. For example, sections 2–19 were...

He’s Been There, a song about Jesus Christ

He’s Been There, a song about Jesus Christ

Guest post by Jelaire Richardson. This is a song I wrote about the Atonement of Jesus Christ while I was in the Missionary Training Center. We usually summarize the atonement by saying, “We are imperfect, so we need a Savior.” But I love how Chieko Okazaki takes a different approach by stating its inverse: “Perfect people do not need a Savior.” I was struggling with learning Dutch and sometimes felt like I didn’t deserve help learning the language because I wasn’t the perfect missionary. …

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

Music practice charts

Guest post by Jelaire Richardson. 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 …

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...
