When was that?

Understanding the chronology of the Book of Mormon or Bible can go a long way toward building understanding and appreciation for these special books of scripture. Use a timeline to help your kids get a feel for when and where things are happening in the scriptures. You could have your family create its own timeline as you study by mapping events and people out on a posterboard. Other options include:

- This gorgeously designed wall map (order online here).
- This 1976 Ensign version you could print out and use as a bookmark.

- There is a simple, easy to understand timeline of the Bible online here.

- A timeline using artwork from Arnold Friberg is available here.

- The LDS seminary bookmarks with timelines on them are available as pdf files here (Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon).
Scripture of the Day: D&C 88:123-124


  1. How funny! My lesson tomorrow in seminary in on understanding the book mark! We are going to start Mosiah tomorrow (I am a few day behind:-) and understanding the time line is critical right now. The kids can get so confused.

    Perfect timing!

  2. I love these time lines.I have a book mark one, I really enjoy looking at it.


Comments are much appreciated!
