Scripture Memorization

When I was younger and my mom homeschooled me, every month I had to memorize a passage of Scripture. I was also involved in AWANA, in which you memorize Scripture for badges and other rewards.

At the time, I did it because it was what was required. But now, I’m reaping the benefits of verse upon verse of God’s Word being in my head. It gives me the opportunity to meditate on the words of God even if I don’t have my Bible open in front of me.

One of my greatest passions is for Christians in my generation to develop a deep and lasting love for God’s word. The best way I’ve found to do this, aside from being in a local church that preaches the Bible, is to memorize Scripture, and so this page is a list of resources I’ve found that either help you learn how to memorize Scripture or that talk about the benefits of it.
