One down, 29 more to go

Scripture memorization has officially begun! I'll start off easy, so the first one is a verse I am familiar with but want to master word for word, reference and all. It is relevant almost everyday of my life and is a constant reminder that I need to focus on daily. Drumroll please...Philippians 4:6-7. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."

Along with the iPhone app I recently downloaded, I've created a couple other ways to provide reminders throughout my day. One is a printable 4x6 image that can be printed and placed anywhere. I have mine on my desk at home, but it's just missing a pretty frame to prop it up. Another idea would be to place it in one of those cheap, acrylic frames with the magnet on the back and stick it to a refrigerator (or any other magnetic surface).

My other creation is an iPhone wallpaper image that can be downloaded and used on the lock screen. Everytime I go to check the weather or see the latest message in my inbox, I'll have a reminder of the verse I'm memorizing. To set it, just download and save the image to the camera roll and select "Use as Wallpaper". Click here to download the free iPhone wallpaper.


  1. Love your blog Teresa. :) It is very soothing and calm.

    This scripture is the first one I ever actually memorized when I was 17 years old. My method was trial by fire (actually I think that was the Lord's method, heh-heh, He still uses that one a lot!) and I repeated this to myself over and over for comfort until I knew it backwards and forwards...It's still my one of my favorites.

    You know what's interesting is, after I memorized it the Lord gave me multiple opportunities to speak it into other people's lives and pray it for other people. :)

    I love all your ideas. I'm working on a crafty way to help me memorize more scripture right now.

    Looking forward to reading more of your pretty blog. :)
