Well, it’s only been about 4 years since my last post, but in that time I’ve had tens of thousands of downloads of my Wide Margin Edition of the Book of Mormon PDF. This blog was never really meant to be a regular update of my life, but rather just a place to post resources that I’ve found or created that have helped me or might help others.

With that in mind, I recently had someone write to me and ask me to create a wide margin edition of “Come Follow Me—For Individuals and Families,” the manual for home study for 2019. This is a little bit of a different request; the scriptures are on a smaller page, so adding a wider margin and placing it on an 8.5×11 page isn’t too difficult. Doing this with “Come Follow Me” means that we have to shrink the existing type. This makes the resource a little more difficult to read, but it does free up some margin space for notes.

I’ve created the following PDF by shrinking the existing text by about 20%. Hopefully that gives the note-takers a little more space, while leaving the text readable.

Come Follow Me, For Individuals and Families (2019) Wide Margin Edition

You may also consider using the Wide Margin Edition of the New Testament, and keeping your notes in there. Here’s a link to that PDF.

    Hi! I just found your site today through a link on A Lively Hope. Would you consider doing a wide margin version of the green hymnbook? At least of the pages that are under the Church’s copyright? Thanks!

    On that note, I was wondering if you think it’s possible to shrink the Come Follow Me manual to the size of small scriptures? The full letter-sized book is just too much to carry around all the time, and as I’m single I don’t have anyone to share my book with. Or does that sound completely implausible?

    Thank you so much for doing this! My Mom, sister and I are loving our New Testaments we printed out. My mom just had me do the Book of Mormon, too. I really like that it has all of the correct footnotes, etc.

    I’m wondering if you have tried printing the Old Testament? I’m tempted to try, but am worried about how big it will be. 🙂 (and if you did, what weight paper you used)

    Brad,I live your wide margin PDFs. As a writer, I am particular about copyright. Before I use them, I just wanted to ensure that you had obtained the appropriate copyright permissions for sharing Church owned materials digitally.
