  1. How do you recommend using the scripture notes symbols? Do you use it as a form of shorthand when writing margin notes?

  2. Yes, that’s exactly how I use it—in the margins of my scriptures. For example, Alma 25:4–5 says,

    4The seed of Amulon … 5caused that many of the Lamanites should perish by fire because of their belief.

    In verse 5, I underlined “perish by fire,” and in the margin next to it, I drew the symbol for Prophecy followed by the reference “Mosiah 17:15.” In that passage, Abinadi says,

    15Thy seed shall cause that many shall suffer the pains that I do suffer, even the pains of death by fire; and this because they believe in the salvation of the Lord their God.

    In verse 15, I underlined “death by fire,” and in the margin next to it, I drew the symbol for Fulfillment followed by the reference “Alma 25:5.” I’ve found it to be a very handy system.

  3. Great resources! I am really enjoying your work. Please keep it up! PS, Add me to your feed if you can ;o)
