Bible Memorization...

I personally do not do the best when it comes to memorization.  If I sit down to memorize I can do it but if I dont continue to use it I will forget it.  So I have to memorize and then recall it a couple days later to see if it stuck or if I start over and re memorize it.  

Today I had the chance to go to a bible quiz with our teens from youth group.  CAN I JUST SHOUT OUT AND SAY OUR TEAM WAS AMAZING... our three girls place 1st, 2nd, and 3rd!  (my hot husband is the coach :) and did great too)  AWESOME JOB!  This year they are memorizing the book of John so within the team they split up chapter on who memorizes what.  These questions are not just memorize the word but know how to answer the questions that can get so detailed it is amazing to see how much knowledge these students have regarding the word of GOD!   

While watching and cheering and having the proud feelings like a parent would have watching their child it made me think about my personal bible memorization and knowledge.  If these teens can memorize all this information I think I can work on memorizing a few verses every month!  Made have the same moment I have when I watch the biggest loser "if that 400 pound man can run a mile then I can too"  so "if these teens can memorize chapters in a book of the bible then I should really start working on my memorization."  

Bible memorization has been on my mind longer then today.  I help out at Awana and I work with my daughter who is a cubby bear and even she can memorize verses.  She is 3 and every week  she memorizes little verses.  I work with the 5th and 6th grade students and they are hard workers who memorize many verses too.  As an Awana leader there are a few verses I should have memorized and half the year is done and I barely have worked on them... i know a few just cause they are some basic verses but come on what is taking me so long?  Who is going to give me a kick in the butt and help keep me accountable?  Maybe we should be encouraging our adults at church to memorize since our kids and teens are being our examples!  :) 

Well I will end this with GOOD JOB to Britteny Zettler, Ariel Nuemann, and April Wyatt for sweeping 1st-3rd place!  SO excited to find ways to fundraise your way to NATIONALS in April!  Maybe your reading this and you want to sponsor a student to participate in the national competition... leave a comment with your email and I will email you our church address!  :) 

Also good job to all our kids in Awana for week after week memorizing the word of GOD... how powerful those words will be on your hearts your whole life!  God has big plans for you...let Him use you!  :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
