I 've been taking a wonderful parenting class and the teacher referred to the scriptures as a "workbook". I have written in the margins but usually with not enough room to write my thoughts. I wanted to take it a step further. I love pictures because they can describe something so well with very few words or not any at all.
I went to Seagull Book Store and got some pictures. I told the cashier what I was doing and she mentioned that she did something similar(on her mission) but with pictures from the Ensigns. So needless to say I went home and looked thru my magazines and found more pictures.
1-I just covered the front of the picture with contact paper.
2-This picture came out of the Ensign so I covered the back with label stickers so I could write any notes or thoughts in the empty space.
3-After buying these "who's your hero" mini cards(which are amazing), I wanted to put these in my scriptures but found they were too thick so I copied them on white paper and gave the originals to my kids.
4-Use a glue stick along the spine of the picture to be put in the spine of your scriptures.
5-These were quotes I put in my scriptures in seminary in High School (with a glue stick-still there 14 years later) and I love them. I do enjoy reading and pondering but now even more with pictures and writeable space.
Just another thing: as I study I have a "scripture journal"(simple notebook inspired by Becky). I write the reference down and then I write down any thoughts or questions that come to mind. I hope to have many of these journals
