God didn’t give us a spirit that makes us weak and fearful. He gave us a spirit that gives us power and love. It helps us control ourselves. 2 Timothy 1:7
Our first verse for the Fruit of the Spirit is 2 Timothy 1:7 from the New International Reader’s Version. I made up some motions for the verse and Lydia memorized it immediately!
In the video you’ll see she misquotes it a little but the thought is still the same. I did a “take 2” but Asa was crying during the whole thing. Kind ruined the mood, you know?
(You’ll also notice she says the reference before and after. I read somewhere that for really good recall you should memorize it that way. Seemed like a good idea…)
Seriously, if you are not helping your kids memorize scripture, you are missing out on the PRIME time. Kids memorize quickly and it will stay with them forever! The motions helped her stay focused and memorize it, too.
Do you have any other memorization tips?
