Helping Our Children Memorize Scripture

Lately, my six year old has been coming home from Sunday school and church youth club with parent notes indicating various scriptures the children are working to memorize.  My mission, as the letters point out, is to help my daughter memorize these specific verses.

But there are so many to learn and she has other activities and responsibilities to tend to as well {aside from having time to just be a kid}.  There's daily homework for school.  Chores. Gymnastics.  Girl Scouts and the various fundraiser work necessary with being a Daisy.

It's almost too much to deal with some days.  Well, for me at least…since I'm the master planner and organizer of our family schedule.  But as I've spent time praying and meditating over how best to accomplish this calling God keeps taking me to the words of Proverbs 22:6…

Train up a child in the way he should go,

and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Setting an example through our own knowledge of God's word, while encouraging our children to memorize scripture really needs to be a priority.  I mean, what Christian parent wouldn't want their children to have God's word stamped on their hearts?

There are definitely awesome benefits to memorizing scripture!
