Doctrine and Covenants Scripture-Story Grab Bag

Print Share

    To play this scripture-story game, mount these two pages onto lightweight cardboard. Cut out the picture cards and put them into a small, sturdy bag. Have the first player pick one card and tell what the card reminds him or her of in the Doctrine and Covenants or from Church history. There are no wrong answers, but the player must explain why the card reminds him or her of that principle or story. For example, the “prison” card might remind you of Joseph Smith in Liberty Jail or of spirit prison. If the player can’t think of a story, the other players may help. Take turns choosing cards until a story has been shared for each one. To expand the game, add the Old Testament Scripture-Story Grab Bag cards (see The Friend, October 1998, 13), the New Testament Scripture-Story Grab Bag cards (see The Friend, October 1999, 12–13), and the Book of Mormon Scripture-Story Grab Bag cards (see The Friend, October 2000, 2–3). Tell stories from these scriptures too.
