4 Moms Discuss Memorizing {and 2 GIVEAWAYS}


The 4 Moms are discussing memorization this week and we have 2 awesome giveaways to share with you that will help you and your children memorize tons of scriptures!

If you have children, you have probably noticed that it is easy for a child to repeat what he has heard repeated with regularity. Whether it is the words to the Word Girl theme song or the books of the Bible, if a child has heard it enough times, he will be able to repeat it.

Of course, music makes memorizing even easier, which is why even a 2 year old can recall the 26 letters of the alphabet.

We have learned continents, oceans, countries, and more with these Geography Songs [2], and if you are my age, you know the words to the preamble to the Constitution, thanks to Schoolhouse Rock [3].

My children have easily memorized the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson [4] because they love to listen to that CD set to music.

The bottom line is memorization is made easier with 2 elements:

In our family, the most important kind of memorization is that of scripture. (See this video of our children doing Bible memory work [5].) The psalmist said in Psalm 119:11, "Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee," indicating that God's word can be a buffer against sin. Jesus himself quoted various scriptures when he was tempted by Satan in the desert.

This is why I am so excited about the 2 giveaways The 4 Moms are offering this week!

We will be giving away the A to Z Cd from Abe and Liza Philip [6], which is a precious CD with the voices of children reciting Bible verses for every letter of the alphabet, and then each verse set to music. (Perfect for preschoolers!)

AND one of the Psalms Cds (Pure Words, Ascending, or Songs from the 40s, 50s and 60s) from Jamie Soles [7] (the winner may choose) which has entire psalms set to music. (Excellent for older kids!)

2 winners will be chosen randomly and there are several ways to enter. Leave a comment on this post for each entry.

Now, hop on over to the rest of The 4 Moms and enter on their blogs as well!
