You guys keep asking about my morning scripture study. Here’s a little info on the Book of Mormon study guide helps I use for my daily study.
The Book of Mormon study guide I use for my daily scripture study
I’ve had a lot of questions lately about what I use for my Book of Mormon study, so I wanted to share a few resources with you today.
Our church studies a different book of doctrine every year. Last year we studied the New Testament, the year before that was the Old Testament, and this year we’re studying the Book of Mormon.
There are lots of resources on our church’s website that are helpful for studying the scriptures, but I wanted to specifically share a few that have been helpful for me as I study early in the morning.
When I do my personal scripture study
Every morning I do my personal scripture study first thing in the morning. I wake up around 5:40am, get dressed for my workout, and then do my morning scripture study around 6:00.
My scripture study lasts for about 15-20 minutes, and then I do my exercise.
Here are the Book of Mormon study helps that I use
I found a few good podcasts and study helps that I use as I study the scriptures every day. Typically I listen to a podcast or watch the YouTube video for 5-10 minutes at the beginning of my study, and then spend the rest of the time reading from the actual scriptures, writing notes in the margins, and writing notes in my journal.
These are three of my most often used study guide helps.
- Don’t Miss This youtube channel. This is a really fun and helpful study guide with two seminary teachers. It’s a good option for youth because of their style of teaching, but I also find a lot of great insights in their lessons. I teach the high school seniors Sunday school class at church, and I find this resource really helpful for preparing my lessons for class.
- Cwic Media. My mom introduced me to this podcast (also a youtube channel). It’s much deeper theology, and he has some fantastic insights. If you’re looking for a deep study, this is a great supplementary study.
- Come Follow Me study guide. This is the official study guide put out by our church. It’s a weekly outline with study ideas, insights, outlines, and links to supplementary materials. We use the Primary version when studying with our boys. (The Red Headed Hostess also has a great study guide for kids).
This is the journal I use to take notes during my scripture study
I use THIS PAPYRUS JOURNAL to take notes and journal during my scripture study. Writing things down helps me remember things and internalize what I’m studying, so this is a hugely important part of my study.
If you have any other great Book of Mormon study guide ideas that you’d care to share, or things you do that help in your scripture study, leave a comment. I’d love to know!
