Do you have the blessing of a baby in your home this year? Would you like a creative and practical idea to help you memorize a Bible verse while you are caring for your baby?
Grace is the mother of a sweet baby daughter. She recently shared an idea with me and she was willing for me to share it with you!
When she is at the changing table, she can read the memory verses found on the white board. And when she reads the verses out loud, not only will she hear her memory verses, her baby daughter will have the opportunity to hear them too! Now that is a great idea! Would you like to give it a try?
Thank-you so much Grace, for the idea and for the picture of your whiteboard!

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
Baby can enjoy Bible Time too!
It is exciting to watch babies grow, isn’t it? So much happens during their first years of life. They learn to lift their heads, turn over, sit up, crawl, stand and eventually walk and talk. And as they grow, we continue to have a wonderful opportunity as mothers to spiritually nurture our little ones at home.
How does a new and busy mother spiritually nurture her baby during her already full days and possibly sleep deprived nights? How does she have Bible Time with her baby?
In the book (First Place) you mentioned that before children can begin speaking they can already memorize verses. How can I do this with Joseph…? (Joseph is one years old.)
Our children are born with different personalities, strengths and weaknesses and sometimes with special challenges too. This little “mommy song” can reassure our children that not only do we love them (see I Love You, Yes I Do!), we also like them just the way God made them.
One of the many ways we can express our love for our children to our children is to sing to them!
When our daughters were small, I began to sing simple songs to them that came from my heart. Sometimes I would sing to them as I opened the blinds in their bedroom to a new day.
