But today I write to share a great idea with you that some of you may want to try (if you're looking for ways to help your kids memorize those verses...Awana anyone???). We decided to follow one of the devotional's suggestions on how to help your child memorize the verses and get them to stick. They suggest that you take turns throwing a small ball back and forth..but before you are allowed to throw the ball you have to say a portion of the verse.
For example: "Love is patient." (toss ball) "Love is kind." (toss ball) etc.
I couldn't believe how effective this was! Cody had the whole thing down by the time we were done, and it was fun getting the whole family involved. When we got to the very end, Caden even got in on the action when he caught the ball and finished ending the phrase, "But the greatest of these is_______." Yep, he got it right! "LOVE!"
Ah, scripture memory. It's NEVER too early to start!
