Scripture Memory Plan

“Bible memorization has the effect of making our gaze on Jesus steadier and clearer. … As sin lures the body into sinful action, we call to mind a Christ-revealing word of Scripture and slay the temptation with the superior worth and beauty of Christ over what sin offers ... Actual verses of the Bible have their own penetrating power. And when they come from our heart, as well as from the Book, the witness is given that they are precious enough to learn.”
—John Piper

If you’re serious about treasuring God’s Word in your heart (and here’s why we’re praying that you are!), you’re going to need a systemized Scripture memory plan to make it happen. Memorizing Scripture involves discipline, and the devil always resists. Our goal at SMF is to help you start the journey, even if you never buy a single product from us!

Many Christians don’t regularly memorize Scripture because they don’t know where to start, don’t have an accountability system, or have tried memorizing scattered verses without organization.

SMF’s Scripture Memory Plan has been carefully developed over the years to help you overcome these roadblocks and to maximize your efforts. It’s worked effectively for people of all ages—for more than 70 years.

Our plan includes logically organized Scripture Memory Books, built-in accountability, and incentives to help you on the path to success.


Scripture Memory Books

The SMF Scripture Memory Plan offers more than 50 memory books, tailored for all ages and levels of experience. Each book is made up of carefully selected Bible verses, organized by meaningful topics. Sections are designed to take one or two weeks, and are accompanied by helpful explanations.

Each Memory Book is a storehouse of Bible truth that feeds the soul, and we encourage you to underline and jot down your own thoughts as you memorize.

Accountability

Accountability is at the heart of this system. We help you develop a recitation schedule with built-in goals. Once we receive a copy of your schedule, we place it in the hands of a Scripture Memory "family" member who will follow your progress with prayer.

We cannot overestimate the power of prayer. It is our hope that your effort will not be just a one-time thrust, but one which will continue year after year.

Incentives

We’ve found that having an reward to work toward can be a great motivator, for adults as well as children. (Learn more about our philosophy of incentives.) The rewards we offer are age-appropriate Christian books and games—three rewards total. When memorizers complete their memory books and their hearers report to us, we mail out a reward list from which each memorizer chooses three rewards sent out at no charge.

In addition, those who memorize an entire book in SMF’s Scripture Memory Plan are eligible to attend our Scripture Memory Camp. Camp is for memorizers of all ages, and all memorizers have the opportunity to earn a low- or no-cost week of camp.

Our Scripture Memory Plan is very affordable. Thanks to our generous donors and helpful publishers like Christian Focus, David C. Cook, and Granted Ministries Press, the cost of memory books is kept low, and our rewards are true prizes, given at no additional charge.
