12 Memory Verses for Children

I must confess, I grossly underestimated how smart toddlers can be until I started having children. I watched in awe as my children would memorize things so quickly and would never forget. I would ask them after a long period of time and they would remember every detail. They would learn all sorts of rhymes and silly songs, phonics, ABCs, basic science, social studies and all the other stuff secular curriculum has to offer. That is when I made the decision to incorporate bible verses into the stuff the learn and memorize, not only will this knowledge be of immense value to them in the future, it helps me memorize more verses because let’s face it, memorizing these things are more difficult when you are an adult. However, repeating the verses over and over again with them helps me memorize and learn more.  The verses in this post are easy to learn but I would advise that you be patient with them as they learn and do not insist on instant perfection. Teach gracefully and make it fun, that way they would be excited to learn more. I do one verse per week and also do not fret if you miss a week, just pick up from where you stopped. I was intention about the verses I picked out, children from 2 years old can memorize this. Kindly leave me feedback via email, Instagram or Facebook if this works for you.
