Memorization!

Well, I have been convicted to make sure I nurture my children's hearts. And in that conviction, I want my children to have the Lord's Word engraved in their hearts…so I'm all about memorization right now. I have big plans and ideas on how to help them become passionate about His word…I bought notebooks and page protectors and everything. Have I started? Of course not. But I will, soon.

In the meantime, I did teach Drew and Noah our cell phone numbers. I think I did it in a pretty clever way. :)

Step One: Tell them our area code and what area codes are all about…that was easy!
Step Two: Assign each digit of our numbers to a friend who is that age…

Noah Isaac Ben - Siah Drew Lindley Hudson

Noah Isaac Ben - Siah Drew Lindley Lindley

Step Three: Practice!

It didn't take long at all (the ride home from Noah's preschool…approx. 7 minutes!) and they both have both of our numbers memorized!

Now to start on what's really important…scripture memory!

Me too on the conviction about nurturing my boys hearts!! I'm ready to post Scripture on every cabinet door in our kitchen! I need to memorize too---I want to have something to pour out to them for every situation that arises. What's your plan? What are your verses?
