40 verses in 40 days!

40 Verses in 40 Days!  For our 40 series during the season of Lent we are fasting 40 days from something that holds us back from spending time with God (TV for our family) and feasting on God's Word (Journaling through the book of Luke).  However, I felt led to take it a step further and will be trying to memorize 40 verses over these 40 days.  If you want to join me just get a stack of note cards and write the verse on one side and the reference on the other!  If you are fasting during these 40 days this a great way to use that extra time to feast on God's Word in a way that will be with you long after the 40 days are over!  Ready, Set, Go!
