I came across this post Sunday and it could not have come at a better time. In this post Demian Farnworth gives a list of 18 tricks to help with the memorization of scripture. There are a few in this list that I have never tried, but may give a whirl in the coming months.
Here are just a few examples. Check out Fallen and Flawed for the complete list and explanations on each technique.
