Oh, I am so excited about this! Along with reading the One Year Bible for 2011, I have also embarked on an attempt to memorize the book of Colossians this year. Well, I have to admit, this has not gone as planned. It has been a huge struggle for me. Jeff has even tried to help me with it, but I just cannot retain a thing. No matter how many times I read through the verses and tried to repeat them, the words would not stick. I was about to give up.
And then I found Scripture Typer. If you are wanting to memorize, and tend to learn visually, please go check this thing out! Instead of reading a verse and trying to repeat it out loud, you type it! There are several ways to learn the verse. You may choose to have the whole verse in front of you as you practice. You may have parts of the verse pictured while you fill in the blanks. And ultimately, you attempt to type the whole thing from memory.
In one night, I had the first four verses of Colossians down! It can be done!
You may print out memory cards, too!
I am thinking I might have the kids start using it, too. They can work on their typing skills while they learn scripture! This thing keeps track of how fast you type, so you can compete against yourself, or even others, if you'd like!
Go check it out! It is fabulous!
