Old Testament Scripture Challenge


Noah was a prophet of the Old Testament. He kept the commandments and helped his family stay safe from the Flood by listening to the word of God. You can keep the commandments and help your family too by reading from the Old Testament every week this year.

Have an adult help you cut out this coloring page or print it from liahona.lds.org. Each week after you read, color in all the spaces with the number of that week, using whatever color you think best. See page 76 for weekly reading suggestions. You can read by yourself or with your family. When you are done, you will have read some of the most important stories in the Old Testament!
