Hey Friends!

Welcome back to the A to Z Memory Verse Challenge 2012! I’m so glad you are here! If you are new to the A to Z Challenge, you can read all about it here ! You can join in at anytime!

Today is the perfect day to start memorizing verses with us!

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

A – As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15b
B – Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. Acts 16:31
C – Create in me a pure heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
D – Devote yourself to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2
E – Every good and perfect gift is from above James 1:17
F – For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, love, and of self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
G – God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in time of need.
H – How awesome is the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth.

And now for our “I” verse –

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free! Galatians 5:1

Memorizing Ideas ~

* My daughter Manda likes to jump rope around the block saying her verses at the same time. (My neighbor/friend Lori saw her the other day and said to Manda, “Yes, you are your mother’s daughter!)

* Don’t forget the dry erase marker idea. Write the verse on mirrors in your home. (Send me a pic when you do!)

* 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 “I” on colored cardstock. Write the verse on the “I”, and hang it on your refrigerator.

* Get crafty! My friend recently sent a pic of some fun verse cards that she recently made with her gang. So cute!
