Wide Margin Scripture Journal

Looking to create your own wide margin scripture journal?

What You’ll Need:
  • Notebook (I bought mine at a dollar store- it’s a composition notebook)
  • Pen or pencil (I use a pen)
  • Colored pencils
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Printed wide margin scriptures of your choice (Instructions below)
How to print wide margin scripture chapters:
  1. Plan what book or chapter of scripture you want to study first. Locate the book online. I went through the scricpture study section of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints website, Bible Gateway,, is another good resource. They have multiple versions of the Bible available.
  2. After you have located the chapter you plan to start with, select print (Don’t print yet).
  3. The printing information should come up. Scroll down to options and click on it. There should be an option for margins. Click on margins.
  4. Change your margins by dragging them to your desired size. I find 3-inch margins to work well. I use letter size paper to print. wide margin printingwide margin printing
How to create your wide margin scripture journal:
  1. From your printed wide margin scripture pages, select the number of verses you want to focus on for each page in your notebook.
  2. Cut and paste your selected verses to the page. While I typically paste mine in the center, I enjoy the flexibility of placing them on the side of the page as well (that works well for a page with a large amount of genealogy). I paste a chapter or a few chapters in as I go, depending on the size of the chapters.

That’s it! For more ideas of how I use my scripture journal CLICK HERE.
