When you’re trying to make a meaningful connection with your child, memorizing Scripture is a great sharing activity.
Choose some easy ones, 1 Corinthians 16: 13-14 or Ephesians 4:32.
Let your child choose one that she would like to memorize together. Then work your way up to longer verses. Make it a fun thing you do together everyday, repeating the verses and see who remembers it best.
Knowing you are working to learn them right along with her will encourage your child to challenge herself to remember. If it’s hard for her to memorize, spend a couple of weeks on the same verse. Write it in the fridge and around the house to keep it fresh. Set your ipod alarm for 4:30 everyday and then each say the verse when it goes off. Say it together when you’re having dinner with the family.
It’s a joy to memorize together. And it will be in her memory long into her life.
