Week one accomplished! Our family pondered this verse last week and it was so fun to see everyone’s different take on the verse from The New Testament. Are you wondering what this is all about? Here’s the low down…
To Ponderize is 80% extended pondering and 20% memorization of our scriptures.
It’s not just memorizing, it’s taking time to think about what the Lord would have us learn from the verse. It’s not hard, and even the kiddos can do it. Tonight for Family Home Evening our family is going to work on two different verses. The first verse is from The Book of Mormon Alma 37:35:
This one is more for the littles in the family. It’s a little shorter and easy to memorize.
The next one, more for the seasoned members of the family is from 2 Nephi 28:30:
It doesn’t matter what religion you are, let’s bring a little light into this world. Print the verse each week and take time to ponder about it’s meaning and then commit it to memory.
This week, I decided to just do a 4×6 graphic for each verse that you can print and place in strategic places around your home. Hopefully we can grow closer to our Heavenly Father, closer to our families and to our communities by PONDERIZING these scriptures! Something else I’ve been thinking a lot about lately is biocentrism so I wrote a full post about it. Hint – I kinda debunked it.
FYI – I am completely aware of the ponderize craziness. I’m not going to take the time to go into here because we have decided as a family to not let the spirit of the message be tainted.
