The Beginning of a New Year . . . The Beginning of a Challenge!

Tomorrow not only launches a new year in history, it also launches the first year of our special challenge of memorizing 52 verses!! I am thrilled for you who have come alongside us in this year-long commitment, and pray that God will help us all to be faithful in memorizing His Word!!

A few extra notes in beginning this challenge:
      1) If you notice, there is a page full of those who have agreed to pursue this challenge (see Join the Challenge). Please make it a goal to check the blogs of those who have committed to posting their journey on personal blogs. It will be wonderful for us to work together and encourage one another in this journey!
     2) Check back here occasionally. Lord willing, we will post every week to keep track of the verses – and some people have decided to follow the challenge by posting comments on here every week.
     3) Be willing to expound. Instead of simply listing your verses on your blog/here, share why you chose to memorize this verse or what it means to you.

I look forward to what God has in store for each of us!!

I know its late but I want to join too! :) I just learned about this wonderful idea from my friend Lauren - I think this will be a great encouragement to many this year... maybe even a few like me who used to be a wiz at memorizing and then suddenly cannot seem to keep anything in their head. I am excited to see that some of the young ladies have already posted ideas on how to keep God's Word fresh in our memories. Sarah F.
