Works For Me Wednesday--Scripture Memory

Pin It Now! *Updated 10/20/10--This is a very old WFMW post, but I wanted to share it since this has been a favorite way for my kids to memorize scripture!

Sword Fighting has been such a blessing for me and my kids, so I thought I would share it with you all.

This is such a wonderful way of memorizing scripture--if only I would have thought of it sooner. I have always had trouble committing Bible verses to memory long term.

Following the suggestions in the book, I wrote the temptations on an index card. Then, I wrote the matching verses on swords, which I cut out in the shape of Sting, Frodo's sword. The boys really liked that!

Though, Shiloh isn't memorizing just yet, she enjoys handing out the temptations to the boys on Fridays. (We have already completed the entire book, so on Fridays we just do a review.)

The book contains 52 temptations and verses, so you memorize one a week. Each day you read a Bible story that corresponds to that particular temptation and verse. It really is a great way to teach kids how to specifically apply God's Word when dealing with temptation.

I love this way of learning Scripture so much that I plan on using this technique to write out more temptations and matching verses when I have the chance.

Hey - Jenni w/ the dishwasher detergent tip here. Just wanted to tell you that www.charliesoap.com carries great inexpensive natural detergent (costs 14 bucks but lasts for 80 loads and no shipping costs). I add a little baking soda for good measure to make sure the clothes smell perfect, since CS has no scents to mask stubborn odors. It's basically just washing soda and surfactants, and I know people use WS and Simple Green in their laundry, too.

Cool scripture memorizing trick! My kids are still tiny, but I'll have to remember this!
