Are you as excited as I am to study the Book of Mormon in 2020? It’s going to be a great year! Help your family visualize the events that took place all these years ago with a Book of Mormon Timeline! The Etsy shop, Felix + Felicity, designed this great timeline for you to hang on your walls or glue in your journals.
The Book of Mormon Timeline is a great visual representation for children and families of the sequence of stories, events, and people in the Book of Mormon. It’s easy to assemble too! There are two options of sizes- one with the books printing as a full sheet of paper and the other as half sheets. Be sure to download the one you want (the button to download is at the bottom of this post).
Each "book" in the Timeline highlights a part of Book of Mormon history. It has a short summary of a Book of Mormon story, the year it happened, and a supporting scripture verse with fun, colorful pictures.
You’ll find the following stories highlighted in this Book of Mormon Timeline:
Lehi and his family leave Jerusalem
Vision of Tree of Life
Nephi builds a ship
King Benjamin's address
Abinadi and King Noah
Alma the Younger
Alma and Amulek
Moroni and the Title of Liberty
2000 stripling warriors
Samuel the Lamanite
Signs of Christ's birth and death
Christ visits America
The Brother of Jared
Moroni buries the plates
How You Can Use The Book of Mormon Timeline
Decorate your Primary room! It’s a great visual for those bulletin boards and can be referred to throughout the year. Have the children add pictures or how they feel about that part of the Book of Mormon to your timeline as you study the different parts.
At home! When you get to the various landmark parts of the Book of Mormon in your scripture study, stop and take a moment to view it on the timeline. Review what you have studied so far and how it ties together.
Need a short and sweet lesson one night? Read what’s on one of the books in the timeline and discuss it or use my comic book templates to draw the story.
Glue it in your journals. As you read these parts of the Book of Mormon, record your testimony of what you’ve been reading so far and add your own drawings.
Add to it! Is there a story you love that isn’t included? Add your own “book” to the timeline.
