Enhance Comprehension by Drawing Pictures
A Pattern for Gospel Learning
Doris Johnson, Author

With five young children I felt a strong need to teach my little ones to know and love the scriptures. I decided to use my personal scripture study time to create "Scripture Picture Pages" for my family. My objective was three-fold:

•Prayerfully seek scriptural accuracy.
•Write understandable captions so our children could make picture representations.
•Preserve the beautiful Book of Mormon language by using frequent quotations.

Over a fourteen-year period, I wrote captions on 2,241 pages that included the happenings of every verse in the Book of Mormon. At weekly "Family Picture Page Time," all seven family members drew pictures representing the caption at the bottom of his/her page—our family pattern for learning. The twelve volumes pictured include all those pages that were drawn week by week and year by year!  Read what the kids say.

"By small means the Lord can bring about great things." (I Nephi 16:29)


7 BENEFITS OF USING PICTURE PAGES

    1. Establish a pattern of family scripture learning to develop and strengthen testimonies.
    2. When children draw pictures of what they understand—or are attempting to understand—an indelible impression is made on their minds.
    3. Picture pages provide a user friendly format for busy parents who desire to provide ongoing, meaningful scripture study for children of various ages.
    4. Self-expression of each family member becomes a combined family effort resulting in treasured family books that document individual growth.
    5. Regularly doing Picture Pages creates a family tradition of togetherness and bonding opportunities.
    6. Children feel self-worth when they know their own contributions are valued and preserved in the “Family Picture Page Books.”
    7. Re-reading the pages while viewing the family’s drawings cements the meaning.
