Scripture and Hymn of the Week

I have tried in the past to have a scripture and hymn or song of the week that we would work on every day and have memorized by the end of the week. I have unfortunately not been very consistent. I'm trying again, and would like to post on this blog the things we are working on--maybe it will keep me better motivated!

Our scripture for the week is the first one I remember memorizing as a little girl.

Matthew 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

I remember learning this when I was given the weekly scripture assignment in Primary. I still remember it. And I can't think of a better principle for my children to learn!

Great scripture.

We've been (sporadically) working on Proverbs 3:5-6.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and He shall direct thy paths."

Honestly, this scripture is what is keeping me going these days. I find it running on autoplayer through my head constantly and it helps to still my quaking heart (please excuse me as I wax poetic). ;)

I've also been trying to teach them "How Firm a Foundation" for the same reason. These have such profound meaning for me now, and I hope that by instilling them in my kids they'll have the same effect for them someday.
