Do you memorize Scripture? What about memorizing Scripture with your kids?
Jacob and I made a short video to give you an example of how you can memorize Scripture with little kids. Here are a couple of things to know before watching:
- Jacob recently turned three.
- He has been listening to me read Romans for the the last couple of weeks.
- He has practiced these three verses every day, sometime multiple times a day, for a couple of weeks before shooting this video.

3 Tips for Memorizing Scripture with Little Kids
Here are three tips for memorizing Scripture with little kids:
- Repetition is key.
- Prompt them along.
- Praise them for a job well done.
You will not likely see fruit right away. Be patient. Pouring Scripture into your kids is a life-long process. Some days it takes a little motivation to help them focus their attention. Jacob loves sips of my hot tea. If he is particular spacey or not interested in participating, I'll offer him a drink of my tea to arouse his attention. Then he's with me and happy to repeat the memory verses. As they get older, that's not as needed. Jacob is a little competitive too, so if he hears his older brother reciting, he will often want to do it too!
