Here are some ideas we brainstormed for helping parents easily write Scripture on their kids' hearts weekly:

* Write a verse on a chalkboard weekly that sits at the breakfast table (Brian's family does this).

* Print a verse and post it on the fridge for the week.

* Write on the bathroom mirror with a dry-erase marker.

* Put it on a 3X5 card and put it on your car's dashboard.

* Save it weekly as your family's computer's screensaver.

* Text it to your kids.

* Put a note in their lunchbox.

* Use the "Talking Tom" app to have them say it and the app repeats it.

* Play it as music in your car.
