“Marking Your Scriptures,” Friend, Dec. 1985, 12
Here are a few ideas to help you start marking your own scriptures. The pages listed are for the LDS edition of the King James version of the Bible and the 1981 edition of the Book of Mormon. If you don’t know how to read words or numbers yet, ask your mom and dad or a sister or brother to tell you the stories and help you find the right pages. You draw what will help you to remember each story. To give you some ideas, we’ve put in parentheses what Steven drew.
