ABC Memory Verses

I took verses listed on several different ABC Memory Verse Plan pages in order to make the following list. For the purposes of this website and for teaching; all of the verses listed are from the NIV (unless otherwise noted). Also, I have shortened some of the verses so that the first letter starts with the coordinating letter of the week and/or to make it easier for a child to memorize (I have included links to the full verse for the ones I shortened). I also came across a Scripture Memory System which I plan to use for schooling purposes.
