Memorizing First John Again (Here's How)

One of my goals for 2016 was to memorize 1 John. I failed, but I made significant progress and am resetting it as a goal for 2017. The biggest problem as usual was discipline. I never had firm enough habit of memorization. Memorizing Scripture is hard work.

The good news is that I am already off to a good start this year. I've memorized twenty verses so far.

I'm still using the methods I talked about in this post, but I'm applying them with the five by five method described in the video below. I'm not sharp enough to do ten verses per week, but I'm going to try to stay consistent with five verses per week.

The beautiful thing about the five by five method, is that it gives you a doable review structure. It's still hard work. You will have to push yourself. It may not be easy. But this can be done, and you can tailor the amount to work for you.
