A Holy Experience: How to make this month amazing; Romans project.


See on Scoop.itHCS Learning Commons Newsletter

What you know by heart — is what your heart really knows.

And the crazy things is, right at the first of the month: what the heart knows by heart is all that can calm a heart.

Direct a heart. Strengthen a heart.

So I’m thinking: What does a heart know by heart?

So March blows in —  and this heart here stammers out a recitation of Romans 1:1-17 of The Romans Project:

Join in the March dare project with a memory commitment project.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies‘s insight:

Ann Voskamp shares more on her memory commitment challenge.  Download free Roman cards and share in the app, which allows for typing and bible memory to come together.  (there is a cost to the app)
