12 Bible verses for tweens to memorize

Had this idea to do with the kids over the summer

I cannot believe that there are only a few weeks left of school this year!  I see some schools are already out, but here in Michigan, we’ve had so many snow days that some schools are having to stay in longer to make up those days!  Thankfully, our kid’s school waved the extra snow days and they will be done at the scheduled date (one of the benefits of being in a private parochial school! :))

With summer looming ahead, it makes me start planning on activities to do with our two youngest kids.  We only have one family vacation planned and one vacation for just me and my guy…is it wrong of me to be looking more forward to that one?!!?!? 🙂  One of the things we’re going to try doing with our tween/teen children is having a Bible verse to memorize each week.  I’ve challenged not only my kids, but me and my husband to memorize them too!
