Creating a Book of Mormon Scrapbook

Reading the scriptures is an adventurous journey. We learn every time we apply ourselves to understanding. There are many layers of depth, understanding, and growth for every student of truth.

The Prophet Joseph Smith said: “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.”

Having our children come to know, love, and apply the teachings of this book will prove a great blessing in their lives.

We are helping our children create a Book of Mormon scrapbook where they can keep a record of all their adventures as they come to know and love this book.

We started our adventure by creating a cover for the scrapbook. We chose to do ripped paper art. There are many creative, artistic, things you can do to create a cover for your Book of Mormon scrapbook.

The children had a wonderful time and created multiple pictures. I asked them if they knew why they were having so much fun. They weren't sure. I explained that Jesus is a creator, and we are created in His image. He loves creating because it's fun. We are like Him, and we also love to create.

We put their picture inside the front cover a 3-ring binder.

We are ready to start putting our Book of  Mormon projects in our binder.


  1. Nice idea. I don't see any tips or aids.

    1. This is the first post. We are keeping our upcoming projects in the scrapbook. This is a work in progress.

  2. There are many ideas we would like to share. Time permitting, we would like to post something every couple days. Subscribe to the blog, and you'll be notified each time something is posted. Some of the ideas are unique; some are similar to other posts, but are based on a different scriptural passage.

    This is what we are doing with our children. We will post the aids we prepare for our family, so it can save you time.
