According to curiousmatic.com, people are much better at remembering pictures rather than words. Elaine K Jones, who had to deal with a faulty memory, found a way to improve through doodling. Jones’ book titled “Designs to Remember The Ten Commandments” (published by Xlibris) started with zentangle doodling during Bible study sessions and continued when she realized how the designs helped her to remember each of the Ten Commandments.
Each of the 10 designs in the book contain hints to identify each of the commandments. The designs have evolved, but the hints remained the same. They began as ink doodles, were changed to machine stitching, were re-designed for color quilt blocks and re-designed again for each commandment in the following pages.

“There are studies on children's brains as they spend hours more on their iPads and technology based games and communication. Brains change depending on what people do. I'm suggesting that visual pictures help memory; it helped mine,” Jones shares.
Ultimately, Jones hopes that through the book, readers can talk with knowledge referring to one of the commandments when they see someone struggling with keeping a commandment, and that they can do a quick thought reminding themselves what commandment might help guide them in their own life journey.
