Create A Scripture Memory Book

One of the ways I have decided to grow in my walk with the Lord is by memorizing more Scripture. I adore the verses about being ready in season and being accountable for what you know. I think memorization has a deeply important place in my Christian life.

So here is a great way for you to put some Scripture together for your own memory verse book. I used the Proverbs 21 Woman, my favorite section of Scripture in the entire Bible.

The book itself is made of chipboard, a sturdy material a little thicker than cardboard. I found these two books at Target for $1 each, but you can make your own if you'd like a different shape. They already came with a ring to hold them together, and you can use book rings in colors to coordinate if you'd like.

Using your favorite adhesive, cover each side of the chipboard pages with coordinating decorator paper. They can all be alike or you can alternate throughout the book.



Write or print out your Bible verses on coordinating paper and attach to each page. For my book I typed the Scripture into a word processing program, which let me adjust the font, size and color. Then I printed it out on coordinating paper and cut them out with the paper trimmer.


The cover can have all sorts of 3D embellishments like my paper flowers, but the inside pages can get easily torn and scratched if you put too much bulky stuff in there. Try using flat versions of those items (stamped images or regular stickers) on the inside pages. Keep the coordinating color schemes and objects.

Now as you flip through my Proverbs 31 book, you'll see the verses in order and that makes memorization much easier.

Try this with your life verse, your favorite verses or some that you'd love to have written on your heart. They're the perfect size for carrying with you everywhere you go, so you'll never have an excuse for not memorizing Scripture again.
