Teaching Children to Memorize Scripture

" You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." 

~Deuteronomy 11:19

One of the things I have heard over the years is how hard it is for moms to teach their children scripture. Either they don't know where to start, they struggle with being organized, or they bite off more than they can chew and end up overwhelmed and ditching it all.

Now everyone learns and teaches in a different way and we all need to do what is best for our own family. I personally have used several different methods along the way, have fallen short, have picked it up again, and continued upon the path of trying to instill God's word into their hearts.

What I know I really would have appreciated is an EASY book that would have shared some simple verses that I knew we could study each day or week. I remember feeling very tired at the end of the day with lots of little ones and trying to look for Bible verses that they could memorize seemed very overwhelming at the time.

I recently got the chance to browse through the ebook, God's Word in My Heart.

And was quite pleased with what I saw. Finally an easy book for the everyday mom who didn't have time to read 500 pages of why she should teach a Bible verse, with memory verses laid out in a easy style with ideas on how to reinforce them for every age.

This eBook includes:
  • Ideas for teaching Scripture to your children, from the baby on up
  • List of Songs and other Go-Alongs for learning Scripture
  • List of specific songs that go with the memory verses
  • Printable Scripture memory verses {presented in short and long form for all ages} for use at home, school or church
    • ABC Memory Verses
    • Verses on Sin and Salvation
There are now four versions of God's Word in My Heart available:
  • ESV (English Standard Version)
  • KJV (King James Version)
  • NASB (New American Standard)
  • Variety (ESV, NIV 1984, NASB, NKJV)

I loved how it was simple and laid out in an easy way that would fit into a busy mom's life style, and being a mom that runs a business at home with a family of 10 it is truly appreciated.
