Scripture Memorizing Boxes

These little boxes are a great way to help our kids memorize scriptures.
Thank you to Chelsea Adams - my sister-in-law, for showing me her Memorizing Box!  I loved the idea!  We have memorized scriptures, but then we forget and time goes on.
This is a simple system to not only memorize but also put those great scriptures into long-term memory! 
Every morning before I send my kids off to school we take the last 5 minutes to say family prayer and then read from the bible or work on a scritpure we are memorizing.  I plan to impliment this great system during that morning time. 
where this idea came from!  Please stop by and read the instructions on how to make your index cards and rotate the scriptures through. 
NEXT: See the pdf below for instructions on building the cards & decorating the recipe box. And FINALLY:  See the last pdf below for a printout of simple but powerful scriptures to get you started .

Grab some colored Cardstock to print off your scriptures.  A simple way to keep your scriptures organized is to print each book on a different color.  Green - Old Testament, Yellow - New testament, etc.  Then just cut them up and start adding them to your memory box!
