Hey Friends!

Welcome 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 !

We’d love to have you join in at anytime!

I must confess I am writing this post the night before I leave for Turkey. With the change of travel plans, I’m still out of town on 3/26, but want this to post while I’m oversees.

BUT I am so excited to tell you how God has already used the “G” verse in our family!

Here’s the story….

Tonight my dear in-laws Bob & Jackie Bultema came over to say goodbye and pray with me before Turkey. While we were chatting, Bob shared how he recently passed along some *She Sparkles* A to Z verse packs to a friend, and the impact the verses had already made in a friend’s life. Woo Hoo!

Bob also shared how he is up to the “H” verse in his personal memorization. One of my girls ran over to get our A to Z verse book to quiz Grandpa. Sure enough – Grandpa Bob is on the ball!

Later that evening, I peeked in on my Manda. She was in her bed writing down her verses in a little book (not wanting to get outdone by her Grandpa, I’m thinking!). A few minutes later she came running downstairs and said…

“Mom, Mom, you know the book you’re making with verses for when you’re in Turkey?”

(While I was sick, I spent a lot of time writing verses in a spiral book to take on my travels)

Manda continued, “Mom, you just have to add the “G” verse. It’s perfect for you!”

Sweet little Manda even made me a “G” verse card to bring along ….

You are right, Manda! What a perfect verse for ALL OF US to let sink into our mind and heart!

What do you think?? Will you memorize the “G” verse with us??

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

Remember, join in at anytime! (If this is your first verse – that’s GREAT!) Go at your own pace – just don’t give up!! 🙂

Giveaways ~
