Scripture Journal Tip: Use the Ensign
How often do you read through the Ensign and think “that is such a great quote”
or story, or way to explain something…? And we think that maybe we will remember that story, or quote in the future when we are teaching about that, or thinking about that, or need to explain that to someone else. But we don’t remember. Until now… just file it right into your journal!
Like this little story by President Hinckley
went right into my page on “missionary work”
And this quote by Elder Eyring.
Again, missionary work.
This was an article about the Book of Mormon
A First Presidency Message
An adapted Conference talk for the New Era
Just copy onto a Word document and adapt the layout so it will fit into your journal. Generally making the document into 2 columns will do it.
Hope that helps!

I have an hour and a half drive back and forth to work and I often listen to old conference talks. The other day I heard one and thought “I need to remember to talk about that with my kids”. Now it’s in my scripture journal (i loved your tutorial on how to make it like a pamphlet 😉 Thanks!!
I just discovered your blog a few days ago and I’m interested in making a scripture journal. I’ve been looking at the pictures of the journals trying to figure out what type of “notebook/paper” you start with and then have you just covered the original notebook with fabric or paper? If anyone knows, I’d love to know what to go out looking for. Thanks!
I love your blog!! Do you have any ideas for teaching about the presidents of the church?
I have watched your ideas with Scripture Journals…and was reading the Ensign the other month and noticed all the quotes they are doing in boxes – pullouts from the articles. So at the end of the month I went through and cut them all up! I’ve got a stash started so when I’m awesome like you I’ll turn it into a real journal. But at least I’ve got a start!
Love this idea! Thank you so much!
I believe she uses nice official journals, that have thicker pages and will last a while. It is in her archives section somewhere.
Thank you Susan! I will browse through the archives and see what I can find.
