Lisa notes...

My verse of the week is:
"Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life."
Proverbs 4:23

My post is here:

This verse is one that helps me value the importance of memorization, too, because memorizing is one way to "keep the heart with all vigilance."

Have a great week, Joanne!


I'm learning about having a heart that is obedient and believes God's promises. My scripture is Hebrews 3:12-13.


I'm going back to the post from last week and now working on 1 John 4:1-6!
Thanks for the accountability of Memory Monday! It's like a fresh start each week to the discipline of memorizing Scripture.



I just began following you. I am going to try and memorize the verses from Hebrews this week. Not making promises. I am going to put your badge on my other blog.
