So Easy a Three-Year-Old Can Do It...Almost

If you've been reading this blog for awhile, then hopefully you already know that I think knowing the Bible is crucial to our relationship with the Lord. After all, Jesus was THE WORD made flesh! Knowing the Bible is knowing Him!
 We may think that Scripture memory is just for kids in Sunday School. Don't get me wrong, the verses I memorized as a kid stuck with me and shaped me as I grew. But as an adult, I cannot keep relying on the things I learned as a child. I must keep moving forward in the things of the Lord. My goal is to keep memorizing Scripture until I see those pearly gates. There certainly are enough verses to keep me busy until then! A good friend and I have been holding each other accountable to memorizing passages. I'm always more motivated if I have to "report" to someone.

(Little Ben-Ben, as we call him, turned 3 in August)

I know I don't want to require something of my kids that I'm not doing myself. That's why I make my bed (almost) every day and why I will continue to memorize right along with my sweet little hooligans.


  1. Oh, man. Break my heart with cuteness, why don'tcha.

  2. By the way, I am highly enjoying my new this very moment, in fact. Thank you so much!!!

  3. Oh Ben! What a cutie! Keep up the hard work, Ben, you will get it! Thanks for sharing, Rachelle! It's so encouraging to see little ones putting God's Living Word in their hearts :)

  4. Gotta love that! Music to my ears!! I agree, memorizing scripture is so key. I used to memorize as a child and then too busy??? I recently started back up again in a discipleship relationship that I am in now. We are memorizing each verse with the letter A-Z. I've never been so excited about memorizing scripture. Only thru D, but Z will be here soon! :D

  5. Your kids are all doing well with their Bible verses! Sara just rattled hers off perfectly last night as well. They are just naturals. I'm sure Bible Quiz is awesome too! Good job!

  6. oh my goodness! How stinkin' cute!
