Psalm 139-a repost of an old post :-)

I originally posted this in 2009, but wanted to share it again:

Lately, more than ever, I've begun to see the importance of memorizing God's word--it is life to my soul!
Shortly after we began school this year we started working on memorizing Psalm 139. It only took my 2 younger sons 30 days to memorize the whole Psalm, whereas I'm still working on it, 40 days later. I'd like to think that's because my brain is full of years of Bountiful Wisdom...but I think in reality it's just getting rusty.

Anyway-it took 2 Dove chocolates and some extra computer time to bribe #4 into letting me share this video with you. I hope you enjoy it.
(BTW-he is disgusted with how young he sounds on the video and wanted to make sure you know he's not 3.He's 8!)

Basically, all we did was read the psalm once a day until he got it.


  1. WOW!!!! I´m so impressed!! Do you hear me clapping!? Good job!
    I would never be able to do that. I think that deserves another Dove chocolate! :)

  2. Fantabulous!!! *standing ovation* Great job!! I can't even remember my own children's names much less memorize that!!

  3. Absolutely nothing better than God's Word hidden in our hearts. Dove Chocolates will not even touch the true benefits and treasure your son has by memorizing scripture. Thank you for sharing. And I am personally glad you are back from time to time with your posts.

  4. I laughed. I cried. It moved me, Bob. (Have you seen Veggie Tales?) Since I didn't really cry ... How 'bout this? ... I clapped. I smiled. It made me so happy, Judy.

    That clip has to make it into my top ten favorite clips ever! Him dancin' to Grits is one of my other favorites! Go, Barrett!!!!!

    And go you! It takes time to memorize scripture, but you're so right! It is so essential ... it is life!!!! I'm memorizing Colossians 3:1-17. Good stuff!

    Hope you're doing well, Judy! Miss you!!!

  5. Wonderful!
    You did a stellar job, Barrett.

    (that word means "star-like"---bright and shining and rare and impressive)

    What a great thing to learn...we memorized this in Spanish class years ago. Not sure how much I remember.

    "Senor, tu me sabes, tu me conoces......"

    Thank you for posting this.

    Hope all is well,

  6. Wow! Great Job, Barrett!!! I love Psalm 139. It's a wonderful thing that your mom had you memorize it. You've challanged me. I'm going to try and memorize it, too. Thanks for the encouragement.

    By the way, I don't think you sound like you're 3 yrs old. You sound much older than that.

    Love you,

  7. Love this video! Wow only 3! Great things ahead for B.! Jared really laughed at the "bribing" part!
