I completed my first mod-podge project (at least, my first since I was a small kid).  After I started it ,I was wondering why on earth I decided to mod-podge the box anyways.  I figured it was probably better how it began, but I’d already started…I needed to finish.  (I think my mother can attest to a mountain of unfinished craft projects that I’ve started over my lifetime).


This is my box.  It was a bright pink index card box that I’ve used for many, many years.  The bright pink doesn’t really match the 3 males living in my house, nor my kitchen décor, and because I want to leave this box out so that I can quickly get in and out of it and be reminded to, in fact, get in and out of it, well…I decided on the project.


I use the box for scripture memory verses. This isn’t an idea that I can take claim to.  I think it has been around and used by lots and lots of people.  I learned it from a friend, back in the day.  I haven’t used it much the last couple of years, but it still has my cards in it and it really was a good system for me.  If you don’t do scripture memory, you might want to consider.  I’ve always appreciated it when I’m working on it.  I’ve used those verses I know many times.  And now, it is a great way to be teaching my kiddos (in regards to Deut 6).  Ideally I go over the verse I am working on with Abe morning, lunchtime and sometime before bed.  We’ve been working through Psalm 1.  We almost have the whole chapter (but, don’t be deceived, it is a short chapter).


The categories are: daily, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and then 1-31 grouped into groups of mostly threes (1-3, 4-6…).  Our new verse would go on an index card in the daily slot.  After we’ve learned it, it gets moved back to a weekday slot, and then eventually a date slot.  That way, after you have learned it, you are still periodically reviewing it to keep it so you don’t forget it.

Typically my index cards have the reference on one side and the verse(s) written out on the other side.  We haven’t written out Psalm 1 yet though, and I am not sure what the best way for us will be to do that.  All on one card?  A different card for each verse?  Figuring that out first, would be helpful.  Then I could pull the card out when I need help as we are working on learning it.  Oh well…
