Project Scripture...

Alright, y'all, I am SO excited about this! I hope you guys are too. 

Here's the list of verses I'm planning on memorizing in 2012.  I mostly picked verses that were relatively short so they'd fit on my board (which you can see how I made here), plus, I figured they'd be easier to memorize, too! And I tried to get all the hit all the "key" verses, but feel free to shout out any that I missed and absolutely must memorize this year. :) 

(And note that I didn't pick any one translation to use.  For each verse, I tried to pick the translation I had heard used most often for that verse.  But obviously feel free to pick whatever translation you like best.)

(And I promise I'm almost done with the parentheticals, but here's a button you can add onto your blog if you'd like!)
