“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” – Isaiah 55:10-11
Recently, a friend of mine sent me a really great link – Tips On Memorizing Scripture With Children
She knows that scripture memory for little ones is something near and dear to my heart. That’s why I developed the Shepherd My Child Scripture and Prayer cards that can be found on Etsy: Shepherd My Child Etsy Shop
I will confess that as of lately though, I haven’t been utilizing our cards as much as I was in the beginning. I used to read through them at bedtime, but now that Shaan is no longer napping, it feels like our bedtime routine has become so rushed as he typically is asleep by 7:30ish. So, I loved reading through the “Tips On Memorizing Scripture With Children” article and getting the idea to put our cards at the dinner table as opposed to the bedside. We seem to be doing much better now that we are combining scripture memory with mealtime as opposed to bedtime when we are just “done” for the day.
There are several other really good tips included in the article – I encourage you to skim it – it’s a short but meaningful read. Additionally, if you are interested in some resources to get your young ones started on Scripture Memory, definitely check out our “God Made Me,” “My Fruit Basket,” and “God Shaped Our World” Scripture and Prayer Cards (which can be personalized):
