100 Ways to Change Your Life
This book is about the archaic custom of memorizing Scripture, why we must revive it, and how you can begin a lifelong habit of learning Bible verses by heart. Think of it as a shopping spree for the mind, a chance to collect and store up treasures you'll enjoy for years.
Restoring the art of Scripture memory is crucial for us, our churches, and children. It's vital for mental and emotional health and for spiritual well-being. Though it's as easy as repeating words aloud, it's as powerful as acorns dropping into furrows in the forest. It makes the Bible portable; you can take it with you everywhere without packing it in purse or briefcase. It makes Scripture accessible day and night. It allows God's Word to sink into your brain and permeate your subconscious and even your unconscious thoughts. It gives you a word to say to anyone, in season and out of season. It fills your heart and home with the best thoughts ever recorded. It saturates the personality, satiates the soul, and stockpiles the mind. It changes the atmosphere of every family and alters the weather forecast of every day.
It takes one minute a day, or five or ten—whatever you can devote to it. It can be done in your bath, your bed, at your desk, or in an airplane (you can't say that about too many things). It can be done on the go, in traffic jams, while shaving, at sunup, or before bedtime. It can be done alone, with another person, or in groups. It's an amazingly versatile habit but also a vital one, profitable whether we're in the nursery or the nursing home.
Here, then, are 100 ways to change your life—100 Bible verses everyone on earth should know by heart.

I am trying to get a copy of this into the hands of every young family in my small church. I think it is wonderful and has me memorizing again even though I thought I was too old.

I recomend this book highly. Scripture memorization is vital for any Christian to be able to live a victorious life.. We teach it, we share it, Lead others to Christ with it. and make our way thru difficult time with it.

This book is wonderful. It is a great resource for my devotional time. I have also used it as an addition to my Children's Church lesson. My husband, who is not a reader at heart, has even picked it up and read it. I hope all my family will eventually use it also. It is one of those books that will keep ministering throughout the years.
Reviewer: Jan P
