Tips for Memorization

~Photo courtesy of Microsoft Office Clip art~

We are told to hide God's word in our heart. Kind David said, "Your word I have hidden in mine heart that I might not sin against you." Sometimes it is hard to know what is the best method of memorization. Below are some tips on memorization that I have found helpful -

*Before you start the actually memorizing the passage you have picked out I find it helpful to read the passage several times to understand what it is saying. 

*After reading it several times I like to write it out a couple times.

*Now I start memorizing the passage by working on it phrase by phrase.

*If you are planning to memorize a chapter or even book of the Bible and plan to do it over several months I have found it helpful just to read the chapter or book, out loud, three times a day.

*Reading the passage out loud right before you go to sleep really helps, and just listening to the passage read while you are laying in bed is also really helpful.

*After you have memorized a passage make sure it review it very often. If you do not you will soon lose it (That has happened to me several times). I have found an free, online site that is really helpful. It is called Memverse.

May you strive to hide God's Word in your heart!

Check back next Saturday for the giveaway that I will be holding related to Memorization!

So, I read your comment. Great job to you and your siblings! You all did so well. I don't know if I'm going to do the Bible Bee again. It can get so hectic sometimes (especially with keeping up on sword study!), and I might take a little break next summer. After three years of it, it just gets intense. Of course, I still want to be memorizing, but maybe not on that scale. But we'll see. :)
Blessings,
Natalia

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

2016 National Bible Bee // Pictures

National Bible Bee 2016 was so amazing, so of course I had to take lots of pictures of the week. Unfortunately, because of our internet, I am unable to upload them all...so, I'm going to post a few on here and then give some links at the bottom of the post.

2016 National Bible Bee // Lesson #3

This will be the final lesson that I share from my journey in Bible Bee. While I've only shared three lessons, there were so many more that I learned.

So often I get caught up in the future - what will I be doing, where will I live, etc... In my thinking of the future, I miss the present. Life flies by so quickly, and if I spend time wishing for/dreaming about the future, I will lose the present. I'll "wake up" five years from now and regret the time that I threw away.

Every day there are so many little things that we can enjoy and give thanks for. Yet, I so easily lose sight of the present in dreaming about the future. While in Bible Bee, it was so easy to dream about Nationals that I lost study time and time with my family. Then Nationals would come, it'd be over, and I'd look back and think "why did I spend so much time dreaming about Nationals that I let myself lose study time?"

The present days are so precious. Be content with where you are. Do…
