How do we find true happiness and success in this life?
Psalm 1 tells us the true formula for success. The Psalmist outlines what to avoid, what to do, and tells us the real secret behind a productive satisfying life. It’s something we all need to remember.
How to Use Stick Figure Bible Memory
To use this tool, simply print (or copy) . I’ve included a copy of the passage from net.Bible.org for your use, or you can substitute the version of your choice. The pictures should still be valid.
Place the first page of pictures and copy of the words somewhere that you and your child can easily grab them at the same time each day. I keep ours in page protectors in the basket with our hairbrushes. You might like to put them on the fridge to use at meal times, or in the car to discuss in the car line.
On the first day, tell your child that you are going to learn a Bible passage together. Point to the first picture and say, “How blessed is the one’”. Ask them to repeat it. After they repeat it you’re done. Easy.
On the second day, ask your child if they remember what the first picture was. If they can tell you, praise them for their excellent work. Then point to the second picture and say, “Who does not walk in the way of the wicked.’”
Don’t worry if your child doesn’t remember the picture the first day. Just repeat it, have them repeat it. Depending on how their brain is wired and what developmental stage they are in, I have seen children fly through passages, or stick on a particular picture for days. Take the slow periods as an opportunity to really think about the truths. Try to stay positive and fun so your child looks forward to this activity.
In a few months, or maybe even weeks, you and your child will have committed a precious piece of truth to memory, where it can grow and bare sweet fruit in the years ahead.
