Primary Scripture Marking

*** Just a note regarding ordering Picture Scriptures from the attached website, I don't have any affiliation with them and can't help you if the don't respond to their email. Sorry!

This post was featured on Sugardoodle's facebook March 13th, 2011. It has received a bunch of interest, which I have loved. However, when I blogged about our Primary scripture marking, I didn't know the information came from an actual book. I've been researching this all week and finally have been able to get in touch with the authors. The name of the book is "Picture Scriptures - The Book Of Mormon" by Bliss and MarryAnn Roberts. Written 1981.

Each week in Primary Sharing Time, the Primary Presidency takes a few moments to read a scripture and discuss it.

Then they have the children draw a picture over the scripture (above). You can click on the picture to enlarge it. 

At the beginning of the year, they gave the children a small bag to hold a Book of Mormon. They gave some children a copy of the Book of Mormon, but most parents provided their children with one. Inside the bag they had a packet of monthly reading charts. I didn't get a bag or I would have blogged about it. It is a cute idea. 

Anyway, I thought I would show what we have done so far with Scripture Marking in Primary.

I used to do scripture pictures with my kids all the time. The older ones remember it well. We had so much fun doing it, and we still have some of the old scriptures with the childish pictures describing what is going on. It is a wonderful way to teach them that the scriptures are real.

I have been looking for someone that had these pictures that we drew in the kids scriptures. I have lost the book and wish that I could find one. Do you have the whole book or just what you drew in your scriptures? I would love to be able to have access to the pictures again. My email is Thanks, Debbie

We're getting better at being consistant in scripture reading, as a family. I too would love to have a copy of all the pictures/scriptures. I think this would take our study to another level. Thanks!!!
