Summer Scripture Challenge

“If I had to find one word to describe how belief came to take hold in me, it would be ‘repetition’.” Kathleen Norris

Scripture memorization comes from a desire to carry the life-shaping words of God in us at all times and in all places. Scripture memorization gives our minds somewhere to go when all the media is turned off. – Adele Ahlberg Calhoun
