We have arrived back home from Mexico after almost 6 months of serving in Missions – now it’s time to get organized and begin our new journey of Homeschooling as we continue to prepare for next God adventure.
Prior to leaving for our Mission trip I used a chalkboard on my kitchen counter to help my children memorize weekly Bible verses – Guess what is still sitting on my counter with the last verse we were working on prior to our departure? Yep, the chalkboard is there with the verse Isaiah 6:8
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying ‘Whom shall I send” and “Who will go for us?” and I said ” Here I am send me”
A perfect verse to memorize as our family said “Yes” to God as we loaded our car and headed across the border to Mexico ready to serve those in need in a foreign land. It was great to arrive home and see this verse still sitting on my kitchen counter once again reminding me of our commitment to say “Yes, send us” .
Now that we have made the decision to Homeschool so we can continue to Say “Yes” to new and upcoming God adventures it is also time to get back to memorizing Gods word and using our Kitchen counter chalkboard as a tool to help us each day recite and memorize.
Are you looking for away to inspire your kids to memorize bible verses? You can use this simple idea of a kitchen counter chalkboard
I purchased an inexpensive framed chalkboard that now sits on our kitchen counter in which we write the verse on that we are working on that week for our children to read, memorize and think about each day.
Another idea would be to use a hanging chalkboard or white board in a place your children can view it easily.
You can purchase a frame and chalkboard at local craft stores or online search for framed chalk boards.
Next come up with a list of Bibles verse to begin memorizing – you can choose one a day or one per week.
