A little over two years ago, I stumbled upon the idea of a memory box system while I was searching for a way to easily memorize (and retain) God’s word with my kids.
This system is a wonderful way to intentionally hide God’s word in our hearts as well as the hearts of our children.
The premise of the memory box system is that you continually review the scripture you’ve learned, first daily, then every other day, then once a week, and finally once a month. By revisiting each chunk of scripture you are able to commit them to long time memory.
Since I wanted our tabs to last a long time, I opted for the plastic ones. The plastic dividers come labeled with the alphabet, but I used tiny sticker labels to cover the letters. You could also just turn them around and label the back of each tab with a permanent (thin) marker.
Also, while I have labels for the days of the month (1-31) we aren’t using them yet. Instead, I added four dividers for weeks of the month. First week, second week, third week and forth week. If you just start with the Daily, Even, Odd, Days of the Week, and Week of the Month dividers you can buy just one pack of the plastic dividers. (For months with 5 weeks, we just go through the 1st through 4th week cards, reviewing each one for 2 days.)
Today, I have 16 simple 3 x 5 scripture memory cards. These work perfectly in our Scripture Memory Box.
Make sure you check out the memory box system to see how easy it can be to memorize and review scriptures for yourself or with your kids.
(I’d love to know if you find this printable helpful!)
Do you set aside time to memorize scripture? Do you think the memory box system would work for you? What other methods have or have not worked for you in the past?
