Just days from now–you could almost say hours from now–this Saturday, January 31st, marks the end of Mega Memory Month.After a month of hard work, prayer, and diligent repetition of the passage you’ve selected…I’d say it’s a day to celebrate! At our house, nothing says celebration like balloons:Well, to top off a celebration, isn’t it nice to have a gift or two?The good people at ScriptureStickies.com are helping me celebrate by donating three packs of Scripture Stickies for me to give away as part of the January MMM Celebration!What are Scripture Stickies?Here’s a preview:Scripture Stickies work like Post-It notes–just peel off the backing and stick the verses wherever you’ll see them often (for example, on a bathroom mirror, inside a tool box, or wrapped around the jar of Nutella). They’re a convenient way to get started with memory work. Visit their site to see the different themes and packets they’ve created. If you want to order some without waiting for the giveaway, take advantage of a special offer they’re extending to my blog readers: Enter “MMM” as a coupon code, and you’ll receive 20% off your entire order!You can win one of the three packs by entering your name in the comments on Saturday.You can certainly leave a comment today. It’ll make me very happy, but it won’t get you entered into the giveway.So be sure to come back on Saturday.How will Saturday’s Celebration work?On that day here at my blog, a post will go live inviting participants to link up their own Celebration Posts.You can go hog wild with elaborate presentations or keep it super simple.Last time, technical difficulties foiled a few people’s big plans. If that happens to you, be flexible and don’t worry if something doesn’t work out quite right. Your Plan B could be to simply type it out for us, add a little color and call it a day. Or maybe that’s your Plan A!Why Celebrate?The main reason for the Celebration is to take time to recognize how far we’ve come. Every word that is tucked away in our minds and has migrated to our hearts is precious. Regardless of whether or not we’ve met our goals, this was a monumental undertaking and deserves to be noted. If you like, you can also share what memory tips and techniques worked best for you and why; or you might explain how attempting to memorize a longer passage, poem, speech, book excerpt, or song has impacted you over the month.Will the brain coral return for the next Mega Memory Month?If the coral featured on the January 2009 MMM button left you a little queasy, you can relax. Look forward to a fresh, new design for the next Mega Memory Month.But January isn’t over–queasy-readers, avert your eyes! I’m posting the button as often as possible…while there’s still time:
(Consider participating in the Food on Fridays carnival tomorrow!Any and all food-related posts are welcome to link up!)
The Ecclesiates scripture is sooooo encouraging to me…though I am new in town (just moved to a new state) feeling a bit alone this week…I’m linked together through a great writer…Ann Kroeker and fellow MMM’s as we study and enjoy the challenges of memorizing together.
okay….my brain seized up, I have a valid exscuse, but I probably should have pushed forward…
but in high stress my brain kicks into a gear I like to call, mulling…and when I am mulling I am completely incapable of memorizing….
so please forgive me for getting stuck in mull mode….as soon as it releases I do promise to kick in again….
I can multitask in mull mode but not anything concrete or of substance stays in there…
Counting down til tomorrow!!!
Ann, I am a bit disappointed I did not do well, at all with this MMM. I will do better next time though.
For food friday…can the link be an older one from my blog?
I may have not done well with the MMM, but it was always in my mind and I had fun.
