Scripture Memorization for Kids and Adults

scripture memorization for kids and adults

With the new year comes a new opportunity to help my familly memorize God’s Word! I’ve been gathering resources and ideas to help with scripture memorization and I figured some of you might be interested as well. Here is a list of resources I’ve found to help us hide God’s Word in our hearts and minds.

Staying Organized with Scripture Memorization

I tried out the free 30-day trial for Scripture Box and loved it so I’m joining for only $4.99 a year. Scripture Box allows you to have verses (and catechisms) of your choosing sent to your email inbox daily. It rotates the verses for better memory retention which I definitely benefited from. I was also able to set up separate “boxes” for kids memory verses, my memory verses and our family’s catechism questions and answers. Here’s a little more on how it works.

If you want the benefits that Scripture Box offers but don’t want to go digital, give the Memorization System Tutorial a try. It allows you to create your own memorization box using an index card box. You can also use the free scripture cards I mentioned above.

Verses to Memorize

I have added many of the verses from the above links to our Scripture Box rotation and of course I have some of my own favorites that I want my kids to learn. The challenge is actually memorizing the scripture and remembering them long term. The Better Mom blog had 5 excellent tips for helping kids (and adults) memorize scripture that you might want to check out.

 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
