Memorize a Scripture a Month: March

It’s the first Sunday of the month, so I’ve got more scriptures to memorize! I’ve already shared two in January and two in February. I shared some tips on memorizing in the January post, and why I see it’s important, too. I’m trying to tackle some of the more complicated, yet deeply profound verses. In my faith, the teenagers in high school attend a scripture study program called seminary.  In many areas, it is early morning (6am for me back in the day) before school. Each year there is a book of scripture to study, and they are assigned 25 scriptures to memorize that year, and they are affectionately called: Scripture Mastery verses.  I’ve pulled most of these from that list.

First up is Matthew 11:29-30. It’s such a FUN design, so grateful for Jessika and her helping me to share my vision!  I especially love the “heavy laden” picture and the “easy” button! Picture visuals really help me learn!
