For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Work for me Wednesday

Thanks to a comment from a kind soul on my blog, I have implemented a new memorizing system at our house. Everydody seems to enjoy it, except for Joho, but that's normal for him.

The system comes from Simply Charlotte Mason and you can find it described here. It is very easy to set up and implement. The only work involved is actually writing all the verses out, and getting the cards and the box.

She does have a list of suggested verses, which is very good, but I chose to memorize the verses from our devotionals first.

We are using 2 at the moment with which I am really pleased:

755959: Teach Them to Your ChildrenTeach Them to Your Children
By Sarah Wean / The Vision Forum, Inc

This is a very interesting books with engaging, real to life stories that illustrates important character traits  and Bible truths such as diligence, obedience, faithfulness, kindness, God's protection and many more. Each stories is ended with a verse. Good for any elementary age.

22956: The Big Book Of Questions and AnswersThe Big Book Of Questions and Answers
By Sinclair Ferguson / Christian Focus Publication

This book is very engaging and interactive. It covers a wide range of questions from who we are, who God is, what he came to do, what He expects from his children, the Beatitudes, the 10 commandments and lots more. It has an activity section, verse and prayer as well in each chapter. Great for ages 4-8.

I hope this helps someone, we really have been enjoying these.

Have a great day,

That is the greatest memory system. Of course, you still have to remember to open the memory box...:)
