Suppertime Scripture

We have memorized lots of Scripture verses just by having the verse on a whiteboard in the kitchen and reciting it after our blessing at each meal.  It really works!  So that I can keep a record of our verses from now on, I'm going to update this post everytime we start on a new verse, about every 2-3 weeks or so.  I like to spend time and just let it really sink in.  There's no rush.  You will know what "behavioural issues" we might be facing in our family because I try to choose a verse that will help :).

And our latest one:

"You have been told, O mortal, what the Lord requires of you: only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God." Micah 6:8

"Avoid foolish and ignorant debates, for you know that they bring quarrels.  A slave of the Lord should not quarrel, but should be gentle with everyone"  2 Timothy 2: 23-24 (NAB revised edition).

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely;
In all your ways be mindful of him, and he will make straight your paths."  Proverbs 3: 5-6

"Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions."  Proverbs 18:2

"When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, "Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb."  Luke 1:41-42

"Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."    Collosians 4:6

"Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body."  Proverbs 16:24

 "Hard work always yields its profit, idle talk brings only want."  Proverbs 14:23


  1. Dear Michelle,
    This is such a great idea. I tried incorporating Scripture to the start of our homeschool day last year, but it petered out pretty soon - there was so much academic work to get done (teaching four kids four levels of Right Start math is not for the faint of heart!).
    But grace at meals would be a perfect time for this.
    Thanks for the idea.
    - I love your fun, modest tiered skirt w/frayed edges. Maybe there's some time left this summer to try it, although I'm a beginner seamstress (emphasis on "stress").
    blessings on you and yours,

    1. Thanks! You've reminded me I badly need to update this section! And the skirt? How about make it in a chambray then you can wear it into fall!


I'd love to hear from you! Let's talk!
