Why did I make references to a Bible memory work passage for Classical Conversations?
More than any other method, our family uses songs for memory work and scripture memorization. In the past, we’ve enjoyed memorizing scripture through Seeds Family Worship, The Blazing Center, and Steve Green’s Hide’em in your Heart. And now we have the great privilege of reviewing MegaVerses Volume 3: All Scripture by Mega Verse Ministries!
Fellow CC Parents Tommy & Jo Hendricks use their family’s musical gifts to assist other families with memorizing large passages of scripture through their ministry Mega Verse Ministries. They also provide downloadable lyric videos that can be used for worship at churches and in your own home. The songs included on the Megaverses Volume 3: All Scripture album are:
- Fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-26
- Follow Me – Luke 9:23-24
- Rejoice – Matthew 5:3-12
- Be With You – Philippians 4:4-9
- All Scripture – 2 Timothy 3:16-17
- Unless the Lord – Psalm 127
- Eternal Life – John 3:16-18
- Living Sacrifice – Romans 12:1-2
- Saved – Romans 10:9-13
- Iniquity of Us All – Isaiah 53:4-6
- How Beautiful – Romans 10:14-15
- Treasures – Matthew 6:19-21
- Exodus 20:1-17 (King James Version)
For just $0.99, you can download the lovely 4-minute song of Exodus 20:1-17 (KJV). The Hendricks have graciously provided hand motions to be used with this memory work song. Just watch this video to hear how absolutely beautiful this song is, and then support their ministry by purchasing the mp3 so that you can take it with you wherever you go! (Our family will include this song on our family’s CC Memory Work CD – the CD that we listen to about Half-a-Hundred times per week.)
After listening to this album, I can wholeheartedly recommend MegaVerses for any and all parents and communities who need a resource to assist with the memorization of the Exodus 20:1-17 passage. Beyond that, though, I recommend downloading the entire album, which includes 12 other songs to practice and memorize together as a family! For a look into the importance of hiding God’s Word in your heart, visit this blog post from my very own heart. The truth is, I am weak, but He is strong. And His Word that is hidden in this feeble heart strengthens me. I draw upon it in those long days when struggles loom ahead. In times like this (when our water-well pressure tank springs a leak and we’re not sure if we’ll have enough water to sustain us until it can be fixed, when our van is wrecked by a drunk driver while on a trip to visit family in Oklahoma, when my middle son struggles with a serious bout of pneumonia, …), these songs of scripture are what come to my mind and get me through the next few moments. And I am so thankful for families like the Hendricks who offer their talents to help hide God’s Word in my heart.
