LDS Scripture Study, Marking the scriptures, Teaching the scriptures.
The best advice I can give is from a talk by Elder Oaks: ”Last year a church member sent me a suggestion that someone prepare a book containing all General Authority interpretations of all verses in the scriptures. I replied that I thought this was not a good idea…. What we are seeking to accomplish… is not to magnify the standing of the prophets but to elevate the spirituality of our rank and file members. Like Moses, we declare, ‘would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!’ (Numbers 11:29). We encourage everyone to study the scriptures prayerfully and seek personal revelation to know the meaning for themselves.” (Elder Dallin H. Oaks, “Scripture Reading and Revelation”, BYU Studies Academy Meeting, January 29, 1993)
Subject Book of Mormon
The Young Women of our Ward decided to read the Book of Mormon and mark all the verses dealing with Christ in bright yellow. This way He would shine as they read again.
I did the same.
I bought a "blue cover" Book of Mormon from the distribution center. I then did the following:
Went through and highlighted all the major stories.
I took the list of these stories and typed them on a page that I glued to the front inside cover. On the right edge I put "dot stickers" as tabs to be able to find that story quickly.
