Book of Mormon Scripture Mastery

Do you remember memorizing scripture mastery scriptures when you were in seminary?  Well… in case you don’t… every year the kids are supposed to memorize 25 scripture mastery scriptures from whatever book they are studying.  So over their 4 years of seminary, they memorize 100 scriptures.  Actually – they memorize more than that because a lot of the scriptures are in sets of 2 or 3 (or more). 

One year I had a student that was a whiz at the scripture mastery scriptures – she knew them so well – – and then I found out her secret.  Her family would say a scripture reference at dinner, and whoever COULDN’T say the entire scripture from memory had to do the dishes!  THAT is motivation!

Plus – there are so many fun games that you can do with these scriptures with your family. 

But first – I will give you a print out of the Book of Mormon Scripture Mastery scriptures.  Print them out.  Hang them around your home.  Have everyone mark them in a special way in their scriptures.  Memorize them together as a family.  Talk about why they feel they were chosen out of all  the other scriptures to be a “scripture mastery”.  Pick one a day for morning scripture study.  Have challenges, goals, contests and rewards for those who memorize them.  Talk about the doctrines and principles in them. 

Love them.  Master them.

Some ideas for activities to accompany these will soon follow.  And the better your family knows the scriptures, the more fun the game will be.

Here is the print out:

 oh – and the funny letters on the 2nd sheet are the 1st letters of each word (they are helps for memorization): Book of Mormon Scripture Mastery List

    Oh, I love all your ideas and helps. Please, please, do you have anything to post for the Old Testament?

    I really love your scripture mastery flashcards. Your illustrations and pictures retain the spiritual nature of the scriptures. I will be starting the New Testament in 5 weeks from now. Do you have any ready for the new Testament yet?

    Hi Shannon!!

    I’ve never felt so inspired or so grateful for the web until today when I found your site!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your time and energy in applying the technological advances of today with the most important truths of the gospel! I have 5 children of whom I have homeschooled for the past 14 years trying my hardest to infuse the gospel into every subject, every topic, and every aspect of our lives. My children and I have been trying on and off thoughout the last 14 years to memorize the scripture masteries. And believe it or not I have tried to create great posters and cards to flash for my kids to aid in their ability to retain the scriptures for the last 14 years!! After looking at yours I am totally in awe! Where have you been all these years!! I guess after many inadequate words I wanted to say thanks a million that will last through eternity!! I am going to print our the cards and laminate them this weekend!!

    Many hugs and kisses!

    I have the same request, will you be doing Book of Mormon flashcards? Your previous sets for O.T. and N.T. were fantastic! Thank you for your hard work and inspiration.
    A tired but enormously grateful seminary teacher,

    any chance that you plan to put up Book of Mormon scripture mastery flash cards….including the new scripture mastery verses?

    I see that you have the old version of the Book of Mormon Scripture Mastery 1st letter of every word. I was wondering if you happened to have the new scriptures for BofM Scripture mastery?

  9. Shannon on 05 Aug 2013 at 3:41 pm

    We are working on it! :)
