Welcome to the A to Z Memory Verse Challenge 2012!
If you are new to the A to Z Challenge, you can read all about it here! Join in at anytime!
Today is the perfect day to memorize a new verse! Woo Hoo!
You can check out the verses we’ve learned so far in 2012 here.
You may recall when I was on Spring Break, my friend JJ’s whole family was current with their A to Z verses (way to go, JJ!). Check out her sweet Emma reviewing all the verses for us so far….
Is that not the cutest thing ever?! Thanks, JJ for letting me share!
Here are some things I noticed that were working for her family….
Memorizing Ideas observed at JJ’s Home (shared with permission)~
* The verse was written in its entirity on a chalkboard in their dining room. As I sat at her table, I was always reminded of the verse.
* JJ had a set of A to Z Memory verses hanging by their backdoor where they put their shoes on.
* JJ gives her kids a sticker every time they say their verses all the way through (one sticker per day). Stickers added up equal fun prizes.
* Mostly I just noticed how JJ and her husband Lee are making memorizing scripture a priority and are being intentional about doing it together. 🙂
Now if JJ’s precious Emma (in Kindergarten!) can tell me all of her verses – we can do it too!!!
**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!
And now for our new “L” verse – Mark 12:30
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength”. – Mark 12:30
