Have you ever considered doing a family verse of the week challenge in your home? It is not complicated and I make it even easier for you because I have a whole printable packet of Bible verses all ready to go. Keep reading to find out how to implement this faith building exercise for your family.
WHAT IS A VERSE OF THE WEEK CHALLENGE?
If you are anything like me…you know you need to do more Bible reading and more scripture memory. It is hard to add more items to the never ending to-do list. Family life is busy, but we should try to make room for the things that really matter, like our faith.
A verse of the week challenge is a simple way to get the whole family involved in more scripture memory.
You will start off by downloading a whole years worth of printable Bible verses. I have created these to make this a simple and seamless activity.
Then either print each week's verse off or print the whole year off at once.
Every week you will hang the printed verses up in highly visible places around your home so everyone can see the verse often and learn it.
TIPS FOR MEMORIZING SCRIPTURE
There are some things you can do to make scripture memory easier for you and the rest of your family.
I like to hang the printable verse of the week on the refrigerator, the bathroom mirror, and even in the car. Reading the verse over and over will help you memorize it.
Here are some more easy tips to memorize the verse of the week:
- Say the verse out loud.
- Write the verse down, ten times.
- Practice saying the verse with other family members.
- Come up with fun incentives and prizes for the family member who memorizes the most verses.
WHEN SHOULD I START THE CHALLENGE?
Don't fall into the New Year's trap of only starting challenges or new habits at the beginning of the year. Doing this will result in never improving ourselves!
You can start this ANYTIME of the year. The verses are not dated so can be done in any order for any week!
Today is the day to start.
A YEAR'S WORTH OF PRINTABLE BIBLE VERSES
I have created an entire year's worth of printable verses for you. These are FREE for your own personal use because I really want to help your family in their walk! I do ask that if you have a friend who is interested in doing this too…that you please send them here to my blog so they can print these off for themselves.
Each verse is printed on 2 sheets. One sheet has a large full size version of the verse. The second page has 3 smaller versions that you can cut apart and hang throughout the house.
