Memorizing Ideas ~

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

* Put it on a note card by your toothbrush. Say it aloud each morning & night when you brush your teeth.

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

* Y'all know I love the Kidz Memory Verse Book! Darlene put
all 26 verses we'll be memorizing this year into this fun, colorful book.

**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!

My name is Kristi. I am a Missouri girl, in Iowa for my husband to attend seminary. We are memorizing with our four year old daughter. The book sounds really interesting and helpful as my children are really entering the stage in life for us to be mentoring and leading them into a relationship with our Lord! I also follow and subscribe to your blog and have your button on my blog. My email is These verses are so wonderful, btw! They are so relevant and challenging for me and my husband, yet easy for Emma to memorize and understand. Thank you for this spectacular challenge!

My name is Madonna and this is really my first week in the memorization. Sadly my post about the verse is very tragic. I am trusting that this verse is a direct message from God.
