Psalm 23...By the Boys

I believe hiding God's word in our hearts is a valuable tool for ourselves, but also a gift to give to our children. Why should we hide God's word into our hearts? Psalm 119:11 says, "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you."

I have found that kids tend to memorize things easier than adults at times. The boys have memorized various verses through Sunday school, Upward Basketball, and at home. The first verse I recorded from home was The Lord's Prayer. The next big verse is Psalm 23. I shared not too long ago one way I help my boys memorize scripture, in the car.






Over a month later after studying and memorizing this particular Psalm, the boys still know it and want to share it with you. Caden's video would not load, so I will be sharing that hopefully next Sunday. Even though it is showing black for some reason, it still works.

Hi Rhonda!

That was absolutely precious! What a fine young man! I loved the fact that he told us, from his heart what Psalm 23 said, just beautiful. But, I have to say, I especially loved the end - "Amen, hey", I just had to giggle when he said that! I will say it again, you are a wonderful mom!

Hugs,

Wow, that is so great. I think that is so good that you not only help your boys learn these verses. But also that you show the how proud you are of them for learning it and the hard work they have put into it. The video was fabulous.
Have a great day!

Absolutely precious! He is a great reader too!

I can't wait until Benjamin is big enough to do this. What am I saying, of COURSE I can wait...he's perfect right now.

Still love that great idea of posting the verses to the back of the car!
