Part of the appeal of Mega Memory Month (MMM) to me is that it offers some very public accountability to my attempts at memorizing.By signing up at the main MMM page, we’ve announced our overall intentions.Now you can also check in each Monday with Progress Reports. I’ll post the Progress Report pages on Mondays, but you can link up any time. Put your links in the comments and I’ll update them by hand, so you’ll get some linky-love.

Also, I want to apologize for anyone who has been a little grossed out by January’s MMM button. It’s far too late to turn back at this point, but I promise you that the next time MMM rolls around, I’ll select something other than the startlingly brain-like photograph of coral when making my homemade bloggy-button.
Now for my Progress Report:
Memorizing is difficult for me!
My brain is more like a rubber ball than a sponge–instead of soaking in and retaining the beautiful truth of John 14 and part of John 15, the words are bouncing off.
This is not something that comes naturally, so I’m going to have to work at it and use all the tips I posted at the first Progress Report (if you visit the link, scroll down for memory tips).
I plan to record it on my Mp3 this week so that I can listen to it over and over. I also intend to start writing out the trouble spots. I’ll also make new cards in a new type font with some c o l o r. It’ll freshen it up for me mentally.
I started to type it out, but it was too depressing.
Anyone have any personal revelations?
