Bible marking and memory were a regular part of our routine. For Bible marking we met every morning at 6:00 and Canaan(our leader) would tell us the subject (example: Faith) and would then give us one verse at a time, someone would read it aloud, we would outline the verse, mark the key words, and then write the next verse in the margin of our Bible. So by the end we had a nice collection of Bible markings, which come in handy when you want to read about a certain subject.

Then of course there was the Bible memory. Throughout the summer we had 40 verses to memorize, and we were required to say one verse a day, and then do verse review every Sunday. For verse review our leader would pick five random verses we had memorized to quiz us on. So by the end of the summer everyone had memorized 40 verses. I can't say I remember all of them, but I remember a lot of them, and I really want to print the list of them off the TMI website so I can work on the ones I've forgotten. It was hard at some times, but it was well worth it, and I am so glad that we were able to memorize them. I have found a lot of comfort and encouragement in being able to think of a verse in a moment when I really need it.
