I wanted to share an idea with you we hope to implement in the next few days. At our homeschool co-op last week our leader talked about Bible verse memorization. She asked how many of the children in attendance memorized scripture - my children's hands proudly went in the air! She shared a method with us which looked excellent - it is the Scipture Memory System from Charlotte Mason's website. It looks a little complicated at first, but she assured us she just jumped into it and followed their steps and it has blessed her family.
Our family's verse for the week is another suggestion from a WONDERFUL book I just read called Good and Angry - you can read my blog post about it here. My husband pulled the verse this week because we had an episode Sunday morning with one of our children not wanting to take the dog out and getting pretty angry about it - rather than dole out a punishment he chose a verse about anger and said it should be put in the Bible verse journal and committed to memory. Once she had written the verse she held onto her journal and took it to church with her... she copied several verses during the service and was asking friends to write their favorite verses in it as well! We had no idea how God would take control that morning.
So, here is our memory verse for the week -- again, it's so so important for adults, as well as children.
A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.
