I’m looking for a few good friends.
In particular, I’m looking for people who want to exercise their brains with a memory challenge. You might want to learn a verse of scripture or a poem or an inspirational quotation.
The idea is to achieve these three benefits:
1. We’ll strengthen our mental muscles to keep our brains at peak performance
2. We’ll enrich our souls by learning beautiful and wise words “by heart”
3. We’ll brighten our outlook by being able to call to mind words that remind us who we are and who God is and how we want to live
Looking for something worth memorizing?
Here’s one possibility. I’ve collected 26 verses and inspirational quotes, each featuring a key word that includes a different letter of the alphabet. The alphabet then provides an easy way to access the words you’ve memorized. This alphabet wisdom collection is available on my Free Resources page. Or you can order a set of 26 colored postcards with the verses printed over a beautiful floral watercolor by Mary Ann Simmons. Each of the 26 verses will also be the topic of an entry here in the “Wisdom Memory Collection” category of this blog.
Also on the Free Resources page, you’ll find a short article outlining a strategy for mastering one verse per week.
We blog to know we are not alone.
Friends, let me know I’m not alone in my efforts to weave wisdom, wit, and wonder into my mind. Reply and tell me what you are memorizing.
