It’s June! By the end of this month, you will have studied the New Testament for six months. That’s great! I love that we spent the first six months of the year focusing on the Gospels- Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. In July we’ll start Acts then on to epistles. Keep encouraging your family and keep track of your daily goals using my free June scripture reading chart.
My scripture reading charts have a number for each day of the month. Rather than focus on how much each person needs to read every day, these charts encourage the daily habit. Use these reading charts to:
Encourage family scripture study. Hang it on your wall and color it in every day you read as a family.
Keep track of your personal reading habit.
Inspire your church class to read along throughout the week.
Keep track of another habit you want to improve as you use the Come Follow Me manual
Color and review some of the lessons taught in June (there is a version without numbers)
See if your family or class can figure out what each part of the scene has to do with the New Testament.
Pick a goal before you start so you can cheer each other on as you read throughout the month. Sometimes it’s easy to get discouraged when you skip a day but if you have a 90% fill in goal, it’s easier to keep going when you make a mistake. In our family, we also reward with a bigger treat like a special trip to the ice cream store for those that accomplish the goal. It’s a great motivator to develop a great lifelong habit.
Looking for a more grown up version? See the weekly Come Follow Me reading chart on my general helps page.
P.S. If you want to give a scripture reading chart to your whole ward primary and it’s more than 20 people, it’s okay. Go ahead.
