Having Fun with Psalm 42:1...
The older I get, the more important I realize memorizing Scripture with little ones is. I remember tons of verses that I learned as a young child, but sadly, remember very few that I memorized as a college student earning a degree in Bible theology. Typically, when I think of memorization, I think dull and monotonous, but I've also come to realize how FUN this process can be for my children! Not only can they learn God's Word, but they can get some experiences that help them develop gross motor, fine motor, critical thinking and other skills necessary for their development.
In my opinion, the more tangible the verse, the better at this age. Here's a peek into how some of that looked for us as we learned Psalm 42:1, "As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God."
