Scripture Memory Presentation

This week at Kajijis, I led a simple workshop on scripture memory.  Since I delivered it via Powerpoint, I thought I would try to upload it to the blog here so those not in attendance can still benefit from the tips presented.  The presentation has links in it, but they don't show up as links in the presentation so I will list them below. I want to caution you that this is my very first Powerpoint presentation ever so please forgive my amateur delivery.  Remember everyone's learning style is different so not all of these tips will be your way to scripture memorization success.  Do what works for you!  Hopefully, it will be beneficial to you on your journey to hiding God's Word in your heart.

Slide #4 - John Piper's Why Memorize Scripture? video
Slide #11 - Bible Gateway audio narration (very cool feature where you can listen to a person narrate your chosen scripture)
Slide #12 - YouTube example
Slide #14 - Scripture Typer (If you know your way around a keyboard, you must try this!  Amazing tool...)
Slide #15 - SCM Scripture Memory Box System video
Slide #16 - The Easy Way to Memorize Scripture video

Born Again

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes so has this little blog of ours been reborn.  God works differently through us in different stages of life, and it hasn't been until now that it's been impressed mightily on my heart to pick up His Word and commit it to memory.  Because we are going through the latest Beth Moore study of James, we were challenged to memorize the book of James.  Yes, the Whole. Book. Of. James.  So now, after many failed attempts at committing a verse here and there to memory, I've been challenged to memorize an entire book of the Bible.  Talk about jumping into the deep end when you're not even sure you know how to swim!  So come join us on an adventure of knowing by heart the sacred words of God.  Even if it's not an entire book, you are welcome to join with us on this journey.  Let us know what you're studying/memorizing so we can encourage each other on this path.  Amen?
