Giveaway! 3 Ways to Memorize Scripture at the Table

These tips on how to memorize scripture are inspired by a sponsored post for Tabletop Truths.

It’s not all about the food.  That’s right; family meal times can be valuable learning times.  And what’s more important than learning God’s Word?  That’s why we try to incorporate scripture memorization into each meal that we sit and eat together.

It helps us bring our focus back on what is really important and makes the Word stick.  Here are three creative ways that you can incorporate scripture memorization into your family meal.

3 Fun ways to memorize scripture at the table!

Memorizing Scripture at the Table

1.  Hot Potato

This is my children’s favorite.  Before starting the meal, one person starts by saying their favorite Bible verse.  Then, the person to their right tries to repeat that verse and says their favorite verse.  When the person who started finishes trying to repeat a verse, then the meal can begin.  How fast can you start the meal?

2.  Game Show

You will need a list of scriptures for this one.  Choose a person to play the host.  This could be the winner from the last meal.  The host goes around asking each person to recite one of the verses on the list and if they get it right, they get a point.  If they get it wrong, it goes to the next person.  The person with the most points wins!

3.  Decorate

Visuals are much more memorable than just spoken words.  That’s why Tabletop Truths has the perfect way to bring visual representations of scripture to the table.  Their colorful placemats help turn the family meal into devotional time.

Each mat comes with thought-provoking questions, conversation starters and Scripture references to help you teach your children.  Even if you don’t have a devotional time, they are great tools to incorporate God’s Word into your daily routine.

My children loved the new mats and were eager to learn the verses on them.  As they memorize the scripture on one mat, they can trade and learn a new one.

We used to have placemats with numbers, letters, and other facts for the kids, but I want my children to know the priority in our lives is not academics.  The mats even helps me remember to talk about God during the meal.

Also, those other mats were a lot less durable that our new Bible mats.  The old ones bent, tore and water seeped in between the plastic.  The Tabletop Truths mats are very heavy duty and do not bend easily because of the thick plastic that covers the design.  I know they will last for years!

    I like the Jesus Is Bible Placemat. I’m glad I found this site and the tabletop placemats.

  9. Rachel COleman says:

    Christmas placemat is my favorite. :)

  10. I love all the placements but I think my favorite is The Armor of God. My 4 year old and I have talked about Gods Armor quite a bit but now when I start praying with him about wearing the armor he stops me to tell me I dont need to pray for it, he already has it on. This would be a nice visual for him and allow us to continue talking about it.

    • Also, I forgot to add, my favorite place mat is the armor of God. My boys, ages 3 & 4 LOVE dressing up and the 3 of us being super Bible Heros who fight mean people who aren’t nice to others by quoting scripture and pretending to sword fight at the same time! So that one would SO affirm a relevant, interesting subject to them! Thanks again!!! :)
