A dear friend of mine asked me some time ago if I had ever seen the Bible Alphabet Verse list. I had not! She then told me that all her children could spell their names in Bible Verses. For instance, my name would be:
R- Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Ex. 20:8
A- A soft answer turneth away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger. Prov. 15:1
C- Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee. Ps 55:22
H- Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. Prov. 3:13
E- Even a child is known by his doings, Prov. 20:11
L- Let the words of my mouth, and the medications of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength and my redeemer. Ps. 19:14
So maybe I’m behind the times, but I loved this idea! My friend, Betty, mailed her verse list to me and I’m providing you with a copy of what she sent to me. Her list is King James Version AND I have no way to credit the original creator of the list, but I really thought you would enjoy it. Click here to download.
Another creative option would be to choose verses that are especially meaningful to your child OR your child could choose their own verses.
While we’re on the alphabet topic, I have another wonderful resource to introduce to you today. “My ABC’s of God loves me” board book is a beautiful resource to assist your children in learning the alphabet while learning about God’s love. The colors of this book are bright and cheerful. Our family owns several books illustrated by Laura Ede and her characters are super cute! I thought you would really enjoy seeing them so here’s a preview:
I’m so privileged to give away one copy of this sweet book designed for ages 1-7. If you’re loving the book and want to order it, you can do so here.
One more cool Bible Alphabet resource I wanted to mention while we are on the topic is this Bible ABC’s verse app. The app actually reads the verse out loud to your child and it’s only $.99! Available for iphone or ipad.
