A Scripture Curriculum for Discipleship: 24 Weeks of Scripture Memory Activities
Light the Way is a daily scripture memory workbook along with easy-to-use scripture cards and display sheets for reinforcement. Children can recite, write, draw or interact with character-building scriptures as they commit them to memory. This can be used alongside the devotional book Our 24 Family Ways by Clay Clarkson or independently as an intentional scripture memory tool.
We started scripture memory work when my children were around three years old. I began by choosing short passages of scripture, paired them with some made-up hand motions or a little tune, and repeated them every day until they confidently said the passages. As older children now, they love memorizing scripture and have many, many passages hidden in their hearts. It’s one of the best gifts we can give our children.
Practicing the skill of memory work is great for children. Memorizing pieces like poetry, hymns, and scripture helps train the brain to be receptive to remembering things, boosts confidence, and gives the memorizer a gift they can keep within their hearts far past the time of doing the hard work of memorizing.
Even more important than those benefits, having the Word of God tucked into our hearts allows us to draw on it at any time. Through Light the Way, children will memorize 24 key passages that they will carry with them forever.

Scripture Activity Book
The activity book includes hands-on educational activities for each passage of scripture. This is what you will find in the book:
- Print and cursive copywork sheets - Children will copy the week’s verse in either print, cursive, or both. This practice improves proper spacing, penmanship, grammar, spelling, and punctuation skills.
- Cut and paste scramble activity - Children will cut out each phrase or word and then paste them in the correct order on the lines. Along with another method to practice memorization, this hands-on activity improves fine motor skills.
- Fill in the blank activity - Children will fill in the missing words in the verses.
- Journal prompt sheet - Children will complete the sentence for scripture application and creative writing skills. After writing a sentence or more to complete the thought, they will illustrate. This will help solidify the scripture application to their minds and hearts.
Scripture Memory Cards
Each scripture includes a 3.5” X 5” card for quick reference. You may want to hole punch the corner of each week’s card and keep a key ring of all 24 verses. Another option is to file them away in an index card box for easy review of verses over time.
Scripture Display Sheets
Each scripture includes a full-page display sheet to hang in your home or classroom.
