A Closer Look
Musings on (mostly) gospel and (some) non-gospel related topics.

Structured Edition scripture sample: 1 Nephi
Try reading 1 Nephi in this format, and you might be surprised at how you notice new things. Here's a rough draft of the book of First Nephi from my custom edition of the Book of Mormon that I'm working on. I've tried to make it look more like a novel or textbook,...
Moonsical notation: Music theory meets astronomy
This is just a silly idea I had one day for a graphic. Once I thought of it, it was too fun to not create.

Structural chapter reading chart: The Old Testament, Seminary selected readings
This chart is identical to the structural chapter reading chart for the Old Testament, except I have greyed out many chapters so that only the selected readings from the Seminary Old Testament course are highlighted. I have also added the books of Moses and Abraham. I think Seminary students (and teachers!) would greatly benefit from using a progress-tracking chart like this, because they can learn something about the organization of the books while they read. Becoming oriented is central to understanding and retaining what you’re reading.
Kings of Judah and Israel: Chart
I created this chart to help you keep straight the various rulers in the biblical books of Kings and Chronicles, especially because many have the same names. It’s color-coded to match my map and scripture timeline (forthcoming). A few patterns and insights emerge after looking at the chart, which can lead to some useful personal applications.
Fourteen fundamentals in following the prophet: Games and worksheets
This is a printable poster, handout, matching worksheet, memory game, and more based on Ezra Taft Benson’s “14 Fundamentals in Following the Prophet.” These resources would be great for Family Home Evening or any Church lesson!
Structural chapter reading chart: The Doctrine and Covenants
This is a Doctrine and Covenants reading chart that shows the surrounding events of each section. This can be helpful, since this standard work is a bit unique in that it lacks an overarching narrative. This way, you can spend less time orienting yourself, and spend more time gaining insights.
