Hi everyone,
I just registered recently and am glad to have found this site. I was at Bible School recently where I met Lavern and he told me about it. Thanks Lavern!

In Him,
Nathan

The memory work I have learned is now a rich treasure to me. Even what I learned as a schoolboy - more as a chore to me at the time than anything else - now has become a real asset in my walk with God. One chapter that has become one of my favorites is 1 Peter 1.
I must confess I haven't kept it up in the recent years like I wish I had.
Does anyone have certain tactics for memorizing? The way I usually use is what I heard termed as the 'snowplow method.' Starting at the beginning of a passage and and learning it beginning to finish.

Snowplow is me, too. At least that's my most natural way to memorize. Sometimes I wonder if that's why retention is kind of a pain for me. -Maybe I plow through the passage too quickly. Maybe I should memorize smaller parts and integrate them. ...Maybe I should review more often. Ha! Ha! Of course I should review more often.
You won't get many technical tips from me.
God bless!

The words of God fit together like a great big puzzle. Curiosity about the meaning of life, the universe, and everything usually wets my appetite for memorizing scripture, and the need to double-check the teachings as I make my way through them is what keeps the word fresh in my mind.
