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.
