    Memory Work

    You will be practicing the three memory items that follow throughout all seven chapters of Word 1, so no need to master them all at once. We recommend working on these with even your youngest children. You’ll be amazed at what they remember!

    In subsequent chapters, we will also include chapter-specific memory verses. These are always optional, but provide a great opportunity for older or more advanced children to hide God’s Word in their heart.
