I was sitting at Vacation Bible School, helping out in the nursery. One of the other mothers had just taken her daughter out to change her diaper. She left her phone on the table. It began to ring, and one of the other helpers immediately picked it up and ran to take it to her. At the surface, there may not seem to be anything wrong with this scene. I admit, I’ve done the same thing as that helper. When someone else’s phone rings and they are not nearby, I feel this urgency to get their phone to them. Do you ever feel this? It’s a rather silly thought; I mean, even before cell phones, we had answering machines for goodness’ sake!
I recently stumbled on a newish app that has been a huge game-changer for me and my approach to Scripture memorization. I suppose I should rephrase – it has caused me to have an approach to Scripture memorization. The Verses app (available for iOS and Android – Beta testing) is all about memorizing Scripture in an engaging way.
Within the app you can choose any verse from any book of the Bible to memorize. Then, through a series of games and challenges you work your way toward memorizing that verse.
