fighter verses!

In order for us to be intentional about our kids memorizing Scripture this year, James and I have sat down and made a plan through December.  During carpool to school each morning, (approx. 8 minutes), we use this time to have our girls memorize Scripture.  For 3 years now, they have memorized over 50 verses.  After we made the plan, I thought, why not post it on my blog so others can follow along too, or ask me about it to make sure we are keeping up!
For starters, we downloaded the fighter verse app here:  http://fighterverses.com/store/
We will be memorizing 7 passages through December.  All of these verses have songs with them.   (“Every Fighter Verse™ Songs CD includes word-for-word Bible passages (English Standard Version) set to music.”)  See here to listen to all the songs.  Some are pretty catchy!  I’m going to listen to them in my car often so I can memorize the Scriptures right along with them!  Most of the verses that I remember from childhood are because I learned them in a song!  I know from experience how powerful songs can be to help memorize!
Weeks 1 and 2:  Deut. 10:12-13
Weeks 3 and 4:  Psalm 86:5-7
Week 5 and 6:  James 1:2-5
Weeks 7 :  Romans 1:16
Weeks 8 and 9:  2 Corinthians 12:9
Weeks 11 and 12:  Isaiah 40:28-31
Weeks 13 and 14:  Psalm 141:3-4
Weeks 15:  review
Incentives:
Main Event in December!

Parents keep track of their child’s knowledge of the verses.  There are 3 types of quizzes on the Fighter Verse app:

  1. Quick Blanks Quiz—recite the verse in your head and tap to reveal one word at a time
  2. Word Bank Quiz—select the missing word from a word bank
  3. Typing Quiz—type in the missing words

These quizzes will help them practice the verses throughout the week!  I am thinking of adding a “quiz” to their homework each night.)

Each child earns 6 tokens (approx. $1.50) at Main Event for every verse they know.  The child can earn up to 42 game tokens by the end of week 14.  The kicker is that on the day before or day of “Main Event day” in December, for every verse they can say from the semester, they can earn another 6 tokens (hence the importance of week 15!)  So each child can earn maximum 84 tokens!
Kids at any age can memorize Scripture!  It’s all about the parents being intentional!  The video below is Rilyn 2 years ago at age 6.

    Hi – just wanted to encourage you with the scripture memory. We started with our daughter this year and have all enjoyed it as a family. I am thinking of starting a reward system for verses learned giving DVDs from the ‘What’s in the Bible?’ series. God bless!
