What do cheerleading and scripture memory have in common? I just found out today! When I was in Middle and Highschool I was a cheerleader and I loved the Lord. (He has since convicted me of wearing such short skirts though:) Now as a mother of three sometimes I wonder why I spent so much time cheerleading...does it help me any today? Now I can say "Yes!"
I have been trying to think of creative ways to teach my children how to memorize scripture. A lot of people put them to songs with catchy tunes but I'm not the best singer.
I decided I would put hand motions to the scripture (like a cheer). :)
If you know me well then you might know that I put my hands on my hips when I get mad-which causes my husband to laugh! Now my two year old puts his hands on his hips when he is ill! LOL
Well, now I am putting my cheerleading skills to use again and having fun watching my boys learn the Bible in a new way! Remember we are to "hide God's Word in our heart so that we might not sin against Him." Psalm 119:11
Does anyone have a comment on how you learn or teach Scripture?
