Scripture Memory


“Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” Psalm 119:11
:: the children recite their verses for the family ::

For the past several months, Mother has been helping the younger children memorize 26 verses- one verse for each letter of the alphabet.  The promised reward (when they completed memorization) was an ice-cream party for the whole family.  (Of course, everyone was delighted with that arrangement!)  Finally, Denver, Taylor, Liz, Hudson, and Rebecca individually quoted the required 26 verses.  We celebrated with Breyer’s ice-cream topped with peanuts and chocolate sauce.  (recipe below) 
Bontrager’s Chocolate Ice-cream Sauce:
8 oz. Hershey’s dark chocolate chips
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil on very low heat.  Serve over ice-cream.  What we love about this recipe is that the chocolate sauce hardens when you put it on ice-cream!  The little children (and the big) think that is so cool!

  1. WOW! Great job you all! Yummy sounds great!
    I'm delighted that you children were raised from a young age were encouraged and learned a lot of verses! Unfortuneatly I have a lot of verses on my memory list to to memorize,:) so I guess I better get started!

  2. What a wonderful accomplishment! It is such a blessing to hide God's Word in our hearts! Our chapel at prayer meeting has a time where us children can share verses, if they would like, so it is nice to have a "deadline" to get some memorized, if we'd like. And it sounds like the ice cream was yummy. =)


  3. That's wonderful! It's so encouraging to see people, but especially youth and little ones! Great that you're starting them out so young!

    God bless! Have a very merry Christmas and a blessed New Year! Rebecca K.
