Mega Memory Month Returns January 2010!
As you wrap gifts and place them with anticipation under the tree, would you wrap up one more item?Because there’s a gift I’d like you to give yourself: the gift of memorizing something meaningful … something mega.When we commit something to memory—passages of Scripture, poetry, famous speeches, hymns—we give ourselves a gift … a gift that keeps on giving, because whatever we commit to memory is internalized and accessible to revisit, ponder and share.As someone who has placed her faith in Christ and turns to Scripture as her source of truth, I aim to make Scripture memory work a priority. I have enjoyed including poetry in my Mega Memory Month selections during previous MMM challenges, but this time my focus is exclusively Scripture.Will you join me in January?Memorizing something is a mega-powerful way to start out the new year.
- Pray about your selection.
- Type up and print out the passage you plan to memorize (consider using card stock for durability as you tote it around with you for a month).
- Wrap it up and place it under the tree with your name on it.
On Christmas Day, when you open it, celebrate the joy of the Word made flesh by committing to take to heart His words of truth.On January 1st, I’ll create a January 2010 Mega Memory Month carnival headquarters.For an entire month, we’ll all work on our passages together and report back each week on our progress (Mondays).At the end of the month, we’ll celebrate together whatever we managed to take in.You won’t be alone. I hope many will join the Mega Memory Month challenge in January, but you will have me along for the ride, at the very least.I’m not an expert at memorizing, but I’ll be working hard. And I’ll do my best to encourage you along the way. • For starters, click HERE for my mega collection of memorization tips and techniques.• Also, visit Holy Experience for more inspiration and practical suggestions for memorizing Scripture.Our minds (and hearts!) can hold more than we think they can.

yay! I was so hoping this would be the case. January seems like a perfect time to do it, and I have once again gotten out of the memorization habit. will look forward to memorizing with you next month!
p.s. – guess what? I will have the privilege of reciting either my January or July memory work (the prose or poetry gospel narrative–I haven’t decided which) at our church’s Christmas celebration next Sunday!
Count me in, Ann. I just found the time to put up a post to that effect too. http://wordkeeperinja.blogspot.com/2009/12/mega-memory-month-is-here-again.html
I have not yet decided on my mega challenge, but you’ll be among the first to know when I do. 🙂
Blessings and peace to you and yours.
I coming to you through Ruth over at Caribbean Wordkeeper! I’m going to join you and my friend next month! I am not sure what it will be but it will be scripture for sure. My memory is a little shot at the moment (a lot due to medication). Let’s see what Christ is going to do about it, though :o)!
