drive them into the Word

One of the many things that I love about James is how creative he is in incorporating spiritual matters into everyday events for the kids.  He drives Rilyn and her friend to school each morning.  The drive is probably only a little over 5 minutes long, easy to veg out or try to wake up for the day, right?  That would be what I would do anyway!  But James?  He devised a memorizing scripture game that he “plays” with Rilyn and Cole each morning.  They work on memorizing one scripture passage a week and if they have memorized it by Friday morning, they go to donuts for a quick treat!  He started this last year and I thought it was so cool.  This year, he is challenging them with harder, longer scriptures.  What a way to start off each morning!  This is Rilyn reciting from memory Romans 12:2.
