    i love this! will show maia and peter when they get back from the farm. maia resists learning memory verses so far. want to know your strategy . . .

    We do not call them memory verses and try to make it more like a game. For this one, I say the first part and then they say the second part (then we switch).

    “If you are cheerful you feel good; if you are sad you hurt all over.” Proverbs 17:22 Contemporary English Version

    Remember, we learned a different translation, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a downcast spirit drys up the bones.” I didn’t want to explain what “drys up the bones” means to curious Preston. 🙂

    We also have the CD’s “Seeds of Courage” and “Seeds of Faith”.
    This has been the easiest way for them to learn verses.

    I am happy that you children are writing God’s words on your hearts.

    Much love, Nona

    I think AA is looking more like her Momma. And look at the curls on the boys, too. Maia is precious too. They are growing so fast. I miss all of the Smiths.

    BTW, where did you get the CDs? I’d love to share them with my friends’ children.
