Come Follow Me Sketchnotes
Romans 1-6; August 5-11;
“The Power of God unto Salvation”
Hi there! It’s Monday again, can you believe it? I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling that this summer is FLYING by. We’re feeling more ready for routine and structure around here, at least I am, so I’m excited to get back to our homeschool rhythm as well as some new exciting changes.
But, I’ll post more about that later. As for today, on to the sketchnotes!
Each Monday I post a set of sketchnotes that goes with the week’s Come Follow Me lesson. I love to print these on sticker paper and use them in my scriptures to help me better understand what we’re studying.
I also share a quick plan for our family Come Follow Me study, using free resources from the church. We sit down for just a few minutes each evening (really, MOST evenings) and have a little gospel discussion. It’s nothing fancy, but it works for us!
Tuesday: Read Romans 1:16. Discuss ‘How can we show that we are “not ashamed of the gospel of Christ”?’
Wednesday: Read Romans 3:23-28. Discuss Grace.
Thursday: Read Romans 5:3-5
Sunday: Weekly Recap. Kids lead discussion.

How to use Scripture Sketchnotes:
TRACE. You can also trace these into your scriptures or journal using a light box or a sunny window. My husband made me an awesome lightbox, but this one is a great option for you to purchase.
COLORING PAGE. Use as a coloring page for your kids to work on during family scripture time. Write additional notes and insights on the pages as you go. You could add all the completed sketchnotes pages to a binder to keep as a reminder of the gospel topics you’ve discussed together.
STICKER PAPER. Print on clear sticker paper and cut apart the doodles to add to your scripture journal or into the margins of your scriptures. (This year, I am using this free wide-margin New Testament PDF that I had printed and spiral bound at a local copy shop. But there are many wide-margin options available.)
Printing on clear sticker paper allows you to add color to the doodles using colored pencils, but still be able to see the words beneath them. I have tried out a few different kinds of colored pencils on this sticker paper. Ergosoft pencils and Prismacolor pencils work really well.
