When my kids were little, I made them Scripture Memory Books out of magnetic photo albums. I wrote verses on colored card-stock and cut out magazine photos to match each verse.
It had an amazing impact on my life. As I worked on the Scripture books, my mind was saturated with the Word of God in a positive way. Years later, i had my teens create Scripture books as assignments in various Real Men and God's Girls courses where they learned about marriage, homemaking, leadership, and growing in Christ.
Now I am a grandmother and I wantto carry on the tradition so I created Scripture Memory books in Word, took them to the printer, and created nice coil-bound books. The children love them!
I make sure to use lots of photos of the child I am giving the book to in throughout the pages. Children love to see photos of themselves.
First, I choose the Scriptures and make sure they are simple enough for the age of the child.
Next, I find photos that match the Scripture. I add shape outlines to the photos in different colors and match the font color with the shape outline.
I make a front cover with their name and photo.
Finally, it's off to the printer where the pages are printed and bound into a coil book.
Beyond the way they love to flip through the book to look at the photos and have adults read the book to them, they are hearing the Scripture in a pleasant way. My goal is to see my grandchildren hide God's Word in their hearts. I am excited to be able to be part of that!
Let me know if you try make a Scripture Memory book. You'll enjoy the process as much as the recipient will enjoy reading it.
Be blessed in every way!
