Doctrine and Covenants Scripture Mastery Flash Cards

Here are some Scripture Mastery flash cards

that I just made for my students.  I think this is the hardest year to memorize the references because they all start with “D&C”, so you just have to remember the numbers…

So – I came up with the following solutions:

1-  I made flash cards with references, key phrases, and pictures

The pictures help teach the doctrine and principle and it provides visuals for my visual learners

2-  I made clues that involve the reference

The clues are little sayings that connect the reference with the doctrine and principle

Example: above you can see “The Song of the righteous is a prayer unto the Lord”.  The reference is:  D&C 25:12.  So the clue is:  Put 25 cents in the juke box and you will get 12 righteous songs.

D&C 10:5 is “Pray always”.  So, hold your hands out and show all 10 fingers.  Now bring those 2 hands together and make your ten fingers into 5 like you are praying.

There are 25 flash cards and they are easy to make

Just print them off and cut out each section

One section is 2 boxes.  One box has the reference and the box next to it has the picture and key phrase.

Then fold over and glue the insides together

I laminated mine to keep them in good shape…

So we could play games like this:

Lay out the cards on the table and call out certain references and see which person can grab the right one first.

After that round,  turn them over and call out the key phrase.

If you have small children

Make 2 sets of cards, lay out a set and have them match them.

  1. Thanks for the scripture mastery cards. They are very colorful and I know my seminary class will love them.. If anyone is having problems with the cards fitting correctly in the boxes, try opening it with adobe. I did this and it fixed everything.

  2. Thanks SO MUCH for these helpful tools. I especially like the hints that help you memorize the scripture references. I will be using the cards for game day tomorrow!!

  3. Thanks for helping us out as seminary teachers and parents! I love the thought you put into this and can’t wait to try it out on my students. I appreciate when we can share our ideas and help one another learn the gospel more profoundly in our lives!

  4. You are amazing!! I am a team teacher in seminary and am in charge of the Scripture Mastery part of it, and I love the flash card idea. We have 40 kids (amazing since when we moved here 6 years ago there were 5!) and I am constantly searching for new and creative ways to get the kids excited about learning their SM’s. Thank you for sharing your ideas and talents! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE your scripture journals and am going to start tonight!!

  5. I was wondering if you have considered doing the scripture mastery for the other books as well. These are fantastic and I’d love to acquire a whole set. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!

  6. You are a Godsend, I’m so looking forward to teaching seminary this year, and thank to your website, it just makes it that much easier, I know my kids will be thankful for these cards, I know I am:)

  7. Soy maestra de Seminario y me parece fantástica esta idea de como hacer que los chicos aprendan el dominio de escrituras, te lo agradezco mucho, pero tengo un problemita, al momento de abrir la página sale entrecruzado, ¿me puedes ayudar?, para de una vez imprimirlo y laminarlo. Chau, abrazos.

  8. I am amazed by your handouts! What a brilliant talent you have. Thank you for helping us by making them available. Your site is definitely “praiseworthy”. I will be coming back

  9. I LOVE your flash cards for the scripture master D&C. My kids are now asking if we are going to have them for the Old Testament. So is there any way you are thinking about doing these for the Old Testament for next seminary year. I know that yours will be so much better than anything I can come up with. Thanks for sharing all this wonderful stuff with us.

  10. I was introduced to your blog last Wednesday at a Beehive activity where I was the guest speaker. For the activity, we made scripture journals. Awesome! Then I came home and found out for myself how great your blog is–just in time to print conference packets for my small children. They took amazing notes this year! I was so grateful to you! (I’d love to send you a picture of my 7-year-old’s notes. For some reason, I think you’d be proud.)

    For FHE tomorrow, I am teaching the Plan of Salvation (following a prompting from conference), and have printed and laminated your P of S drawings. I also made small P of S drawings (print 4 to a page), and will give each of my small children a set for our FHE activity. We’ll race to see who can set up the Plan of Salvation correctly.

    The point of my ramblings: your dedication to your blog and your love of the Lord has blessed my life and the lives of my family members–in just four days. What a great start to a long blogging friendship!

    Thank you!!!
    (p.s. Have you made Book of Mormon scripture mastery flash cards? That’s what we’re working on as a family right now. Feel free to email me if you wish. Thanks infinity!)

  11. I know that you are busy with a baby and that you aren’t teaching seminary any more, but do you have some of these made up for the New Testament? I love them and would really like to have some for this next year!

  12. I’m a grandmother and would love to do the cards for my grandchildren for Christmas. Do you have the Book of Mormon flashcards/New Testament? I so enjoy and appreciate your website and your willingness to share.

  13. Thank you so much for this treasure trove! I use these cards for memorization during our home school scripture study time. They are amazing! Do you by chance have any for the Book of Mormon? Thank you again for your inspiration, dedication and time!

  14. Hey Shannon, I really appreciated your updated Book of Mormon flash cards and was wondering if you plan to make some for the new doctrine and covenants scripture mastery passages and if so when you might have the ready to purchase. Thanks.

    1. Hi Kasey!

      Yes! We will be working on all of the new SM this coming month (June) – so you can expect some things probably around the first of July. We are excited to start them! 🙂
