A to Z Scripture Memory Challenge - Come Join the Fun! (& SEEDS Family Worship Giveaway!)

Hey Friends!

Welcome to the A to Z Memory Verse Challenge 2012! I'm so glad you are here!

If you are new to the A to Z Challenge, you can read all about it here ! You can join in at anytime!

Today is the perfect day to memorize verses with us!

Before I share this week's new verse (can you believe we're on "E" already?!) - I wanted to share some fun stories/pics I've received. (I just love journeying with y'all!)

**Thanks, Jen, for sending this picture to show how you're memorizing. She's taping her verses right on her dashboard. Love it!

**Want to read an AWESOME answer to prayer story (and great devotion from the D verse). Check out my friend Lisa's blog! (You can enter her giveaway too!)

**Gigi shares new memorizing tips - be sure to stop by and say hello!

And now for our "E" Verse -

E - Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17

(for the other verses we've memorized, click here).

Remember, join in at anytime! Go at your own pace - just don't give up!! :)

Memorizing Ideas ~

* Don't forget the dry erase marker idea. Write the verse on mirrors in your home.

* Instead of putting the verse on a note card, type it into your phone. (Recommendation from an A to Z friend - thanks Silly Mama!)

* For families, you may want to print off a letter "E" on colored cardstock. Write the verse on the "E", and hang it on your refrigerator.

* I've found the Kidz Memory Verse Book has been very helpful for us. I gave Darlene
all 26 verses we'll be memorizing this year. She put all the verses into this fun, colorful book.

After dinner we pass the Kidz book around the table, each saying the one word in the verse until it sticks in our memory. It's working. Woo Hoo! :)

**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!

Giveaways ~

Cindy, you're killing me (in a good way)! :-) "Young" is one of our FAVORITES of the Seeds songs. In fact, I'm a co-director for our summer program called Base Camp (like VBS on steroids), and we used that song as one of our theme songs last year. It fit perfectly with the curriculum we wrote. LOVE IT!

Lisa said...

Uh -oh...we have to catch did I miss "D"! Time flies!

Philippians 1:6: He who began a good work in you will carry it out to completion.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Hi Cindy,
I am doing the A-Z verse memorization this year with you.
I would like the CD’s for my granddaughters. They are coming to visit me next week. I know that the girls would love the CD’s, but probably not as much as I would enjoy giving them.

IandSsmom said...
