May is upon us! It’s time to download May’s New Testament Come Follow Me Textables. In May we discuss the parable of the lost sheep, marriage, Zacchaeus, Joseph Smith-Matthew, and so much more. Thanks to Colette from My Computer Is My Canvas for creating these textables and making our life simpler.
Get Your May New Testament Textables
How have you been using your New Testament Textables? Here are some more ideas:
Print a note out, attach it to a treat and drop it by to your ministering family.
Text a question to your teen or young adult during the week. Keep the conversation going with the other weekly textables. Ask the question again in your family discussion.
Put the weekly scripture to pop up in your calendar every day and work on memorizing it.
Please note: The file you download will be a compressed file. This means you will have to unzip first or you will get an error message. You must extract your files before you can use them.
HOW TO UNZIP Your Come Follow Me Textable FILEs
On Your Desktop
Techwalla has a great tutorial whether you use Windows or a Mac about how to unzip a file. You can then email the images to yourself to use on your mobile devices as well or add them to your Google Drive or other cloud network. REMEMBER: You need to use the files you extracted, not the ones still in the zip file.
On Your Mobile Device
You may need to download an app in order to unzip the file (or even download a zip file). WinZip is an app that works on both iPhones and Android. Once I had WinZip downloaded on my phone, all I had to do was click on the zip file to open it. Next click on the three dots or menu bar at the top to “Select All” then click on the menu bar again and click “Extract to.” You can then choose which file to move them to and add them to your email or text from there.
For those with iPhones, this is what worked for one reader: Download WinZip. Then hold your finger on the download link. Choose, “Open in Notes.” Go to Notes and it will prompt you to “Open with WinZip.” It will unzip and give you each textable. Hold your finger on each file one at a time. When it opens, push the “forward” icon at the top of the page and choose, “save image” from that screen. They will go into your photos folder and you can easily text those by attaching a photo to your text.
You can also upload the zip file to your Google Drive from your phone and it will unzip it for you when you go to open it (at least it does on Android phones). You may still need to extract them before using them though.
If you still have problems, try asking your family or neighbors for help as all computers and phones are different; it’s hard for me to give you individual advise. REMEMBER to use your extracted files, not the ones still in the zip folder.
PLEASE NOTE: You can share these images one at a time with your friends and family. You can print them and hang them up in your church classroom. However, you can not share the entire file. Please share the post link instead. This allows us to keep these items free. You can not alter these images in any way or use them for commercial purposes. By downloading the textables, you agree to these terms.
