I had mentioned Fighter Verses as a great resource for memorizing scripture. They have a series with individual verses, and a version with larger segments to memorize. I recently found another resource that is a great help. This booklet by Dr. Andrew Davis provides some great methods to employ. I have the verses I’m memorizing with Fighter Verses and the Shorter Catechism, so I’m not ready to start something larger yet, but many of the techniques work well for what I’m doing already. It’s a good thing!

I don’t practice Lent. But I understand the season and the intent behind sacrifices, and evaluating our lives. In the middle of this Lent season, I followed a link from Tim Challies to a blog entry about Complementarianism by Mary Kassian. Then I looked around her Girls Gone Wise blog and that lead me to entries about Giving Life for Lent which had a link to She Is Safe. SIS is having a Lent campaign, asking people to give up something that would cost them about $30 a week and for the 6 weeks of Lent, and donate that money to SIS.
SIS and our partners do serious work to prevent, rescue and restore vulnerable women and girls from abuse and exploitation. Ultimately, we want to see every least-reached girl or woman safe and equipped to thrive: body, mind and soul.
That means they do good stuff. You don’t have to give up anything for lent, or make a long term commitment. But if you are looking for a way to help these victims of the world, this looks like a good place to give.
