About Scripture Courses
Our modern day Prophets have encouraged us to read from the Book of Mormon and one other Scripture daily. Our own Level One Success Skills course requires the same.
HOW TO USE the SCRIPTURE COURSES:
To fulfill the requirement of reading or studying two books of scripture a year, and to do so on a year round basis:
FIRST, USE the COME FOLLOW ME program for the Book the Church is currently Studying. Preview the Week’s Lessons and divide the content up into seven days. Study the COME FOLLOW ME lesson each day as a family.
SECOND, CHOOSE ONE of our courses.
1) CHOOSE the BOOK of MORMON, if that is NOT the book being studied by the Church. When the Church is studying the Book of Mormon, choose one of our other courses – The New Testament, The Old Testament, or The Doctrine and Covenants & The Pearl of Great Price, or one from THE CHRIST SERIES.
2) Study our course right after your Opening Devotional for the School Day. Also, set aside a time to study this course on non-school days. Putting it FIRST in the Line-up of Courses and near the top of your days emphasizes the importance of learning the words of Our Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.
3) Choose a Level of Study:
A – If YOUR STUDENT IS AGES 4-7, a PRE-READER or an EMERGENT READER:
Choose a course from the SCRIPTURE STORIES SERIES. As these courses were originally written for 180 days, just stay on each lesson for two days and you have your year long course.
B – If YOUR STUDENT IS AGES 8-11, and a DECENT READER:
Choose a Course from the 365 DAY READ courses for Ages 8-11 or The Christ Series I: The Living Christ.
C – If YOUR STUDENT IS AGES 12 & UP and for PARENTS:
We Suggest Choosing the FEASTING COURSE that includes the MARATHON READ for the BOOK Being Studied this year or The Christ Series II: Topical Guide Study – Jesus Christ or The Christ Series III: Jesus the Christ by Talmage.

The courses are richly edifying, help us resist temptation and prepare for the Lord’s Second Coming.
It is our hope that you will use them, thereby growing in your testimony of and faith in Jesus Christ.
