Scripture interpretation from kids

Every morning, as we finish breakfast, my husband reads us a short passage of scripture, then we work together at memorizing a verse (one verse per week).

Right now we're memorizing Psalm 23, in segments that are 2-3 phrases per week, rather than a strict verse per week. This week, our set is "My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life".

Yesterday, I overhead Lisel saying to Josephine: "My cup runs over your cup!".


  1. LOL...isn't it funny what kids come up with? I can't wait until my little ones are coming up with their own Scripture interpretations!!

    I came across your blog from The Mother Letters Project blog. I know this is silly...but my daughter is in the Leelou Blogs cute baby photo contest and I am trying to spread the word for people to vote for her!! I need HUNDREDS of votes for her to even come close to catching up to the front-runners. I have been trying to figure out where to find hundreds of people, and I didn't think it was approriate to ask Seth to post something so silly on The Mother Letters Blog (obviously), but I figured maybe all the people who helped with the project would be willing to go give my little Makenzie from AZ a vote : ) If not, that's ok too. I am just trying to get creative and reach more people! If you'd like to help me by voting for Makenzie, please go to and spread the word for others to vote as well : )

    EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY THOUGH...I am also recruiting prayer warriors for a tiny little miracle baby named Kayleigh Freeman, maybe you've heard of her and are already praying for her. It was through her blog that I heard about the contest in the first place. Even if you don't take the time to vote for Makenzie, please take a minute to visit HER website: and say a prayer for this sweet girl!

    PS- THE MOTHER LETTERS PROJECT is in NO WAY associated with this request other than the fact that I found your blog there!!

  2. Hi Amy. You've been in my thoughts the past few days and I thought I'd check in. Hope y'all are doing well!
