Silly Scripture Plates

It’s time for the Valentine’s day plates to come down and something else to go up in their place.  I was thinking, I could just get some nice ones from Tai Pan and leave it at that.  Or I could put some inspiring scriptures up.  Or I could put inspiring and funny scriptures up.  I like the last idea the best.  I think that although Mormon art is nice and all sometimes it’s a little bit stuffy and I think that our Father in Heaven has a sense of humor.  He did create children after all.  So here are my silly scripture plates.  I hope they make you smile too!

See, even back in the golden plate days “they knew not.”  It’s like when I ask Macey, “Did you make this mess?”  Blank stare.  “I don’t know Momma.” Mmhmm.  Sure you don’t. 

I am going to make my girls {MEMORIZE} this scripture by the time they are teenagers.  So when those stinky little pre-pubesent boys try to kiss my girls they will say “Touch me not!”  A mom can only dream.

That’s the {WHOLE} scripture! Remember Lot’s wife.  It was a tie between this one and “He dwelt in a tent.”  Do YOU remember Lot’s wife?  She looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.  There is some significance to this one though, besides being kinda funny.  The moral of the scripture is don’t look behind you, look ahead to the future.  I like that.  I could go on and on about it, or you could just read about the profoundness of the scripture in this awesome article by Jeffrey R. Holland. 

Do you have any favorite funny scriptures or scripture stories? I wanna know!

    I totally would have used He dwelt in a tent. Appropriate for Lehi and his time – husbands today, not so much I suppose.

    I just found your site through ISharePrintables and I think this idea is awesome. I remember in college this guy I was dating pointing out that Nephi’s wife must of been hot because of what he says in this scripture.

    1 Nephi 16
    7And it came to pass that I, Nephi, took one of the daughters of Ishmael to wife; and also, my brethren took of the daughters of Ishmael to wife; and also Zoram took the eldest daughter of Ishmael to wife.
    8And thus my father had fulfilled all the commandments of the Lord which had been given unto him. And also, I, Nephi, had been blessed of the Lord exceedingly.

    He said that last part must have been Nephi’s way of thanking the Lord for his wife’s awesomeness. 😉 Not as short and catchy as the ones you used (I think I like yours better) but thinking about funny scriptures made me remember that. It’s funny how stuff sticks with you sometimes. 🙂

    This is a fun idea! If I were doing it, I would use the most romantic scripture in the whole Book of Mormon – when King Lamoni’s wife is talking to Ammon in Alma 19:5:

    “Therefore, if this is the case, I would that ye should go in and see my husband, for he has been laid upon his bed for the space of two days and two nights; and some say that he is not dead, but others say that he is dead and that he stinketh, and that he ought to be placed in the sepulchre; but as for myself, to me he doth not stink.”

    My plate would totally say “To me he doth not stink.”
