Try the colourful set of 20 scripture cards that make bible verses memorization fun!  Our story...One year ago I started to print bible verses for my son and it was then that I realized how much faster was he learning! He was loving the colours, and the images and he was looking forward to the time when we would learn them. Since then, he memorize over 60 bible verses within one year! This inspired me to design, create and produce 6 Scripture Sets of 20 bible verses each.

They are short and easy to remember. Essential II - start memorizing these verses with children aged 3 and older, they will learn fast!

Scripture with Jesus - these verses focus on Jesus' life, ministry and miracles! Scripture for Women - verses that encourage women and help them stay on the path with the Lord. The design is unique and the cards are printed on quality paper and laminated, so they can last for a very long time – even when used by little wet and dirty hands :) They come in a colourful cotton handmade pouch, so they don’t get lost.

Experience is a valuable teacher. It teaches skills such as how to ride a bike, how to find lost shoes, and how to pay for something at the store. Experience teaches children what it feels like to be left out, to win or lose, or to be put on the spot. Unfortunately, though, if parents aren’t careful, they can rob their children of lessons that could be learned from experience because they believe that loving their kids means keeping them from struggles. Parents who continually rescue their children often short-circuit the learning process by intervening too soon. Sometimes parents can accomplish more by doing less.
