Come Follow Me Reading Schedule: Book of Mormon

Come Follow Me reading schedule, Book of Mormon 2024

29 January 2024

This reading schedule takes the weekly reading assignments from the Come Follow Me scripture study program‘s table of contents and puts them into a weekly chapter checklist, lined up side-by-side with a calendar that shows which week those chapters are read. This allows you to check off both the chapters and the days as you read. It can be especially helpful to see at a glance whether the week’s reading has many chapters or few, to pace yourself.

I’ve also enlarged it into a two-page version (you’re welcome, Mom, as always!).

The calendar’s dark grey days indicate on which Sundays wards will hold Sunday school classes (the first and third Sundays of every month). The alternating bands of grey and white show which weekly assignments will be combined and taught together in a single lesson, during each of those Sunday School class sessions. For example, during the week of Feb. 19–25, the reading is 2 Ne. 6–10. During the next week of Feb. 26–Mar. 3, the reading is 2 Ne. 11–19. Sunday school will not be held Feb. 25 (a fourth Sunday of the month), but it will be held Mar. 3 (because it’s a first Sunday of the month). During that class session, the teacher should cover the reading assignments for the previous two weeks, or 2 Ne. 6–19.

Structure of Books in the Book of Mormon

The books in the Book of Mormon largely tell a single overarching story in chronological order. They can be divided into three broad sections:

  • The Small Plates of Nephi (1 Nephi–Omni)
  • Mormon’s Abridgment (WofM–Mormon 7)
  • Moroni’s Additions (Mormon 8–Moroni)

This is the same color scheme used in the StoryGuide Scriptures Reading Chart for the Book of Mormon to show the same broad sections; see that page for an explanation of why those sections are distinct, and the colors I chose for each. The StoryGuide reading charts also go further to portray a few levels deeper into the structure of each book.

The chapter numbers on this Come Follow Me reading schedule have additional coloring that can help readers be aware of stretches of text that are a little different from the main narrative.

  • Long quotations of earlier prophets are colored light green, such as the Isaiah chapters that Nephi, Abinadi, and Jesus Christ quote.
  • Flashbacks (or, chronological digressions) are colored light yellow, such as the mission of the sons of Mosiah.

These colored chapter numbers are also used in the StoryGuide Scriptures reading chart.

Conclusion

Note that in parts of the world where they don’t meet on Sundays, they’ll have to tweak this schedule somewhat.

The calendar boxes may be especially useful if, say, you or your child has set a goal to read every day.

We’ve been instructed, of course, that the reading schedule is flexible and is only a general guide. A reading schedule like this can be helpful, though, so people can pace themselves and know in advance which passages will be likely be discussed during any given Sunday school class session.
