There are many vivid memories I retain from my childhood.
One of them is the mental image I have of my father sitting and shuffling through a stack of memory cards. Whenever he found spare time on his hands, he would grab those moments to memorize, review, or reflect on the Word of God.
Sometimes he recruited his wife or one of his 4 children to listen and confirm that he had memorized them word perfect. And, of course he had.
Recently, a wonderful book came into my hands. It contains 31
verses that every Christian woman should know and love. To top it off, my baby sister "gifted" me with all 31 verses in a spiral bound format.
Now I have begun a process to make them mine one at a time. I have committed to memorizing them in the next year. (That's 1 a week plus 21 weeks for review.)
I don't really need more time to watch tv, check Facebook, or my e-mails. But, more time to hide God's Word in my heart; now that's something I do need.
My first verse is from Proverbs 30: 5 and it goes like this: Every word of God is flawless; it is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
Are you interested in joining me in memorizing these life changing words? You can get a copy of the book at the link below. If you send Mindy a message, she'll get you a sticker list of them to post around as a tool to help.
I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
