Memorization

It's hard for me to memorize Scripture. UNLESS, I make up a little diddy to go with the verse. Last year, Husby and I memorized a new scripture each week and made up little tunes to go with it to make it easier. Each Sunday morning, on our way to Church, I recorded us singing the verses. I have several and some are just hysterical...but today I will share with you the very first one that we did.

Maybe I will share the rest with you later. I don't want to overwhelm you with our fabulous singing voices all in one day, though. ;)

We made this passage into both a rap and a song. Here we are one year ago (my hair is way shorter then than it is now), singing our little passages of Scripture. Enjoy!

Here's the "rap". We are gettin' down with our bad selves...



And here's the song. Haha, we are ridiculous.



This little method to Scripture memorization truly works. One year later and we still remember each and every one! :)

  3. I love it! Songs are about the only thing I can remember YEARS later so this is a great idea!

  4. Yep definately I agree that seems like a very helpful way to remember. I wish I could get away with such a nice singing voice like you have! :)

  5. hehehe, that was adorable! That is a very good idea, I will have to try that. I'm going to be trying to memorize James this year, that might help me.

  6. You two are amazing and inspiring. I love how you do things together, whether it's faith related or not. Plus, songs/music are a great suggestion for memorization- it's amazing the songs I remember when I can't remember other things.

  9. You guys are just soooo adorable!! Love the way you remember the scriptures...wonder if I could get my husband to rap with me.....nope, he wouldn't do it. I think I will try it solo on our way to church next Sunday just to see his reaction! Thanks for the great idea!

  13. You guys are so funny! I wrote a post last night about memorizing scripture, too. I also make up my own little tunes when I try to memorize, and you really don't ever forget them! You should post more, I am always looking for verses set to music. The kids and I memorized 1 Corinthians 13 easily because we have a cd that puts it to music. I am going to listen to this one over and over until I get it too!

  16. Ok..that is GREAT! Brilliant idea. Soon, Levi will be singing along :0)

  17. I love that you guys do this kind of stuff together. My husband is not a Christian (I was baptized after we were married), and he doesn't go to church with our boys and me. Scripture memorization would be totally out of the question! Too cute!

  20. You guys are too fun - Levi's gonna have a blast with his parents.

    In children's church yesterday we had the kids doing all kinds of hand motions during their memory verse. Yep, all of that helps! :)

  21. I cannot believe that you haven't auditions for American Idol yet. I think you could take the country by storm...

  22. What a great idea!!

    Plus it looks like you guys had a blast doing it together. :)

  23. D grew up memorizing Scripture like that. Just ask him about the "Hide 'Em In Your Heart" song books he and Case sang with when they were little. I'd play the piano and they would sing (mostly Case, since he didn't enjoy the "spotlight"). I know what was missing ... YOU being the director! A great way to teach your children Scripture!

  24. I remember this from before, and it is still just as funny. You know, songs/chants are so useful for teaching and learning. I use them in my classroom all the time. Good work!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, you guys are so much fun! That is hilarious! You should publish all your songs!

    ReplyDelete
  26. okay- well I loved your videos!

    Also- not sure if you wanted a letter for the game- but if so- your letter is "A"- so make a list of 10 things you love that start with A :)

  33. Very clever Whit because you two love music. Any way to learn Scripture is great. I used this years ago when teaching children and it is a great tool. Great job!! Keep on learning together. Kay and BJ would be so proud...
