Book of Mormon Reading Chart & Goal Setting Chart

One thing I love almost as much as the Book of Mormon itself are creative reading charts. There are SO MANY out there, and there’s just something about an empty chart that entices me to get reading. I literally have an entire Pinterest board devoted to reading charts.


My stake is challenging all of its members to read the Book of Mormon by July 1st, and I must say that I’ve fallen far behind. So I decided to get my creative energy flowing and come up with a reading chart, and I must say I’m pretty proud of the result.


I tried a bunch of different styles, but ultimately decided to make a target-style chart, with a ring for each book. As I was making it, I really liked the idea of a target, because not only is reading the Book of Mormon an important goal to aim for, it also helps us achieve our other goals and keeps us centered on Christ.


I also went back and updated the Book of Mormon goal-setting chart I made a year ago after realizing that it was actually pretty hard to read, and not very cohesive with most of the designs of this website.


You can download PDFs of both charts in either black and white or color.

And as a bonus I made a little handout saying “Don’t Miss the Mark—Read the Book of Mormon” to tie with the idea of aiming at a target, which can hopefully help motivate young women who are working on reading the Book of Mormon.

Scriptural Women of Value Posters | Free Download


I love the countless examples of women in the scriptures. Many claim that there aren’t enough women in the scriptures, and while their claims are certainly valid, I see so much depth in the few portraits of women we have the privilege of finding in our scriptures.

Quite a few have seen my series of value posters with Disney Princesses, and several people have mentioned that they would love to see value posters pulling role models from the scriptures. The idea excited me, as it was in fact directly correlated with a project I’ve been working on for the past several months, and so I focused my personal study on seeking out the righteous examples we’ve been given in scripture and finding the values they emulate.


As a disclaimer in advance, I do not own the copyright to any of the paintings used. These posters are only for non-commercial home and church use. I make no profit whatsoever from these posters. I did my best to search the copyright of the individual paintings to see that I would be able to use these images for this small, non-profit project. That being said, I found each one of these paintings to beautifully reflect the divine spirits depicted in the scriptures of each of these women.


Each poster is available as a JPG file, and the set can be downloaded as PDFs. They are only intended to be printed 8.5 x 11, or smaller.

Young Women Value Posters

I recently saw a post on By Common Consent where a Church member had created some alternate Young Women posters with quotes from a variety of different female leaders.  I liked the idea — a lot — and I appreciated her thoughts on the cute-ifying of YW activities. However, I was disappointed that of the […]

2 Peter 1-3, Ladder-Day Saints

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/2-peter-1-3-ladder-day-saints/ We began by having the Young Women recite the Young Women’s Theme. Then I asked the students to look for one of the values that Peter mentions in 2 Peter 1:1-4. Once they identified “divine nature”, I asked them to explain what it meant. It was surprising to them that they did not really […]
