I wish that I could sit down with each of you 1:1 and talk about what this last 2 weeks looked like. Did you focus on memorization or did you struggle? Both are equally possible. How much - beyond the selecting the Scripture - did you invest in memorization?
In case you missed it, my first suggestion on the selection of Scripture is to make sure you write it in several locations: I used my bathroom mirror, the "throne" room, a post it in my car (though I will use a different post it note mine was too hard to read) and in my planner.
The other suggestion I made was to record yourself on your phone & set a time that you would listen to it and as it plays, say it with yourself. This becomes very helpful as we continue to memorize more verses.
Memorization can be daunting for many people & I am asking you to first, ask Holy Spirit to help, that's why He is in us! Second, ask me for help - I have developed many tools & methods that just maybe one of them would help you. The picture that I have featured is something I use, first because it's visual & second, the time I invest in selecting the pictures actually gives me a huge leap in memorization. My pictures won't work for you, but I can teach you how to do this & I would LOVE to host a free class sometime if ANY of you are interested.
Here is my January 15, 2018 Selection:
Proverbs 4:25-26, AMP
"Let your eyes look directly ahead [toward the path of moral courage]
And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you [toward the path of integrity]
Consider well and watch carefully the path of your feet,
And all your ways will be steadfast and sure."

Lets see your post!!!
P.S. I will be Announcing the winner of the Journal Bible, Vera Bradley Cover & Bookmark!!!!
I can't even tell you how excited I am to start this journey and I am even MORE excited to know that there is a posse of women who are coming along with me. With that being said - ladies there are 31 of us willing to step up & grow in our faith! How incredibly cool is that!!!!
So, here is how it works on the blog - its super simple: Write the verse, the version, your name, city & state....
Why is this necessary? Commitment & Accountability - we can say we are going to do something but when we know others are relying on us, it changes our level of commitment. As you read what others comment it helps keep you motivated - you might even find that a few have the same verse as you. I've seen God work in some crazy cool ways. So without further ado, here is mine.
"Listen to counsel, receive instruction, and accept correction, that you may be wise in the time to come. Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the LORD's purpose for him that will stand (be carried out)."
Proverbs 19:20-21, AMP Cheryl Muecke from Peoria, AZ
I hope that this journey is truly life-changing, faith altering & supernatural!
