Just this year I have started memorizing scripture with the kids. I have been pleasantly surprised at how much the kids are remembering, despite my scattered efforts. Here is Kenneth sharing some of what he has learned (he is also learning some verses at church, so this is a sampling of what he remembers).
Here are two easy ways we have introduced Scripture memory to our kids:
My ABC Bible Verses by Susan Hunt
This is one of my favorite books we have been using for our afternoon “Bible class”. The stories are great, and very practical. I love how she teaches scriptural truths like the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives, as well as hitting on some common issues like arguing, disobedience and honoring your father and mother.
Each story is centered around a verse, of which starts with a letter of the alphabet. For example, “A” is “A soft answer turns away wrath” Proverbs 15:1. This makes it memorable for the kids, with just the letter prompt, they can spout out the verse.
Are your kids memorizing Scripture? There is a Hiding His Word link-up which is open until the end of the month. Come and share your videos!
