Happy New Year!!! Are you ready to start our A to Z Memory Verse Challenge 2012?! Woo Hoo!
***In case you missed the details, you can catch up here !
Basically, I'll be sharing a new verse every other week (A to Z style) through December 17th, 2012. I also have lots of fun prizes to share each week with Memory Verse Challenge participants!
Let's get started! Here is the first official verse - Joshua 24:15b
A - As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
Memorizing Ideas ~
* Purchase a spiral index card holder at your local office store, Walgreens, etc.. Write all 26 verses for 2012 in this spiral.
* For families, you may want to print off a letter A (here) on colored cardstock. Write the verse on the "A", and hang it on your refrigerator.
* Write the verse on your bathroom mirror with a dry erase marker. Say your verse aloud each day/night when you brush your teeth.
**Feel free to share your favorite tips, ideas, even pictures. I'd love to share your suggestions and/or link to you in the weeks to come!
Questions to Ponder/Discussion Ideas~
* What does this verse mean to me? to our family?? Spend time reflecting, journaling, praying, and discussing how Joshua 24:15 can help shape you and your family in the New Year.
* What are ways you can serve the Lord in 2012? In your home? School? Neighborhood? Community? World?
* Is there anything getting in the way of serving the Lord? (busy-ness, "screen time", unbelief, etc..). Pray and ask God that He would use you and your family in a special way this week to serve Him!
