Hey Friends!

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

In case you missed it, look at how this creative mom and how her family practiced the “B verse” this week…..

What fun!! Please keep your pictures, comments and ideas coming! 🙂

In case you are new to the A to Z Challenge, you can catch up here ! Basically, I’ll be sharing a new verse every other week (A to Z style) through December 2012. I also have lots of fun prizes to share with Memory Verse Challenge participants!

Here are the verses we’ve learned so far….

A – As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15b

B – Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Acts 16:31

and now C –

C – Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

Memorizing Ideas ~

* Don’t forget the food coloring idea (see pic above!)

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

* Memorize it by song. This mom said her 2 1/2 year old memorized Psalm 51:10 while singing it together. There are many different versions of Psalm 51:10 to music. Here’s one…
