As many of us pause each week to consider the Advent and what the true meaning of Christmas is, it’s a wonderful time to memorize verses as a family.  The scripture to memorize in December follows the weekly focus of the traditional Advent. Each week has a new verse (from the ESV), and you can download the verses on a card to print and display around the house to make remembering them easier.
