Over the last couple of months we have been working on scripture memorization. If the girls can recite the weekly passage (and corresponding chapter in the Bible) they get a piece of candy- and nobody likes impromptu mini Snickers more than these two gals. I am the first to admit that there are few scriptures I have memorized, verbatim, and it’s a hit or miss as to whether or not I can tell you where in the Bible the verse is found, even if I can remember it. This new ‘game’ is two fold in it’s advantages- both the girls and their mama.
Writing new ‘spells’ (to cast on her big sister no doubt)
Some of my favorite so far:
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” – John 8:32
“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” – Proverbs 16:24
And this week:
“I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.” – Philippians 4:13
