Memorizing Scripture Will Strengthen a Child’s Brain

Updated: Aug 26, 2022

Studies show that when kids memorize scripture, their brains get stronger,

and they do better in school.

“Memory is a muscle that you can strengthen. In fact, studies have shown, that if you learn to memorize scripture, your brain will actually get stronger and you’ll remember other things better as well. Study after study have shown that if you teach a child to memorize scripture, they’ll be a better student at school because it strengthens their mind.”

—Pastor Rick Warren
