It’s time for yet another Letter Verse to help conform our children into perfectly behaving little automatons.
Oh wait. Just kidding. It is a little trickier than that.
In fact, your kids are going to have to do just what we adults have to do when we learn a verse–be changed by it.
Shorty after recording this C-verse video, my kids and I got into a knock down drag out about whether or not they were going to pick up their marbles. Of course, I responded in my typically mature fashion by threatening to sweep them up and throw them away. The kids responded in a typically mature fashion by laying on the floor wailing like seals in heat.
All that to say, this is the verse that many of you have been hoping and praying will show up on the list to transform your children from vile sinners into marble picking-up sweeties.
Here’s the handy dandy printable for Ephesians 6:1 Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
We learned this verse from a song on DVD set produced by Steve Green called Hide ‘Em in Your Heart. Here’s the video of the Steve Green version followed by my kids singing the same.
Okay, please ignore the fact that Addie called us “Pair-runts.” I have no idea what she could have meant.
I hope you’re enjoying memorizing the Letter Verses. Please share this opportunity with your Facebook friends and their families!
Also remember, you can challenge your kids to memorize verses to help translate the Bible through OneVerse. I have exciting news! I’ve set up a “Letter Verses” group through OneVerse to support a translation project for the Vindunda people in Tanzania. (Our family supports a Compassion Child in Tanzania and my dad has traveled there many times teaching seminars, so Tanzania is close to my heart. It is one of THE poorest countries in the world.)
If your family is memorizing Letter Verses, please consider joining in this project. This link will take you directly to our Letter Verses group. Check out the link and consider helping to translate a verse for this people group. It is only $26 a verse, so my family is going to give $1 for each verse memorized. At the end of the 26 letters of the alphabet, each of us will have translated ONE verse for the Arew people. Want to join us?
1. Print handy dandy C-verse printable.
2. Tape up by where you eat and SING AWAY.
3. Actually do what it says. (Hmmm . . . that is the tricky part. Parents refer to B-Verse when children fail to regard C-Verse.)
4. Take your Children to the Letter Verses Group at One Verse to show them how their memorization is helping spread God’s Word!
5. (Optional) Make a video of your kids singing a letter verse and let me know. I’ll post it on our YouTube Letter Verses channel. Here’s one of my sweet niece singing B-verse!
6. For those of you choosing other verses for each letter, post your C-verse in comments as an option for others.
Have fun memorizing, transforming, and translating.
