Our Display Book

2015-01-17 18.59.35

Our family is learning Proverbs 4:23. My friend Jen writes at Jen’s New Song and has decided to make scripture memorization a focus for her family this year and will be sharing her KJV printables on her blog as she makes them for her family.  That’s a bonus for me.

We have a display book on our table that has all of the things that we want to go through as a family. It contains pages with our school song, character qualities we’re reviewing, the books of the bible that we recite a few times a week {NT only right now} and the verse we would like to work on. I love this because I print out the things that are important and slide them into the clear pockets. It’s easy to flip through; it’s visible and accessible so that I don’t forget!

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

                                                                                     ~ Proverbs 4:23

That little verse is full of action, of commitment…and of vital importance. As a mother, I need to keep my heart diligently but I also have a responsibility to keep my children’s hearts while they are little too.


  1. To retain possession of.

    kept the change; must keep your composure.

  2. To have as a supply.

    keep spare parts in case of emergency.

  3. To provide (a family, for example) with maintenance and support.


  1. careful and persistent work or effort.

    conscientiousness, assiduousness, assiduity, hard work, application, concentration, effort, care, industriousness, rigor, meticulousness, thoroughness;

{thanks Google}

This week I am turning over in my mind how I can be more purposeful, more diligent, in keeping hearts.  How about you?

  1. […] Also a friend of mine from Family Camp, also named Jen and also a blogger, used one of the downloads in a great idea for her family – a display book on the kitchen table full of important things.  You should check it out!  You’ll enjoy her story and her blog – Beautiful Calling. […]
