Scripture ABC’s

If you were able to join us at C3 this weekend, you know I talked quite a bit about the importance of memorizing scripture.  Scripture memory is a great way to get God's Word in your children's hearts and minds.  But, memorizing scripture is not just for children, it's for adults too.   I believe that the wisdom we need for every situation is found in God's Word, but the problem is a lot of times, we don't know what God's Word says.

So, as I mentioned in this weekend's message, here is one way to teach your children scripture (and their ABCs).  You can take one a week and memorize and then as you go down the list, continue to review the scripture for each of these letters.  

When I was a little girl, this is how I learned my ABC's and I still remember these scriptures.  It's a great tool, moms and dads!
