I’ve written many times on our family’s journey of reading the Bible together in a year. And then, at the beginning of the summer I announced our intention of memorizing James together. And we started off really well.
Of course, the first four verses were super easy because hubby had, years ago, written a song that made it easy to memorize. And then after that… well, summer happened. And we haven’t been consistent at our memorization plan.
So this week I decided we needed to do something drastic to get us in the memorizing groove. You know, like boot camp. Except fun. And when I decide to do something drastic, while trying to be fun… well, the results are often INTERESTING:
This was inspired by people putting verses on their mirrors. But that easily starts to go unnoticed, so… toilet paper verses! Except, as you can clearly see, everyone wanted to keep reading and toilet paper went too fast.
I’ll spare you the 8×10 pic of me with a speech bubble reciting the honor your father and mother verse. I thought it’d go really well attached to the inside of their backpacks. ( ;
I can tell you this – the kids certainly remember these verses! And, as a side bonus, hubby decided to take me out to dinner. Apparently he thought I needed to get out more. Don’t know how he arrived at that conclusion…
And while most of this post is pure silliness, I’d really like to know your methods and tactics on memorizing as a family. Do share!
