"Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee." Psalm 119:11
:: the children recite their verses for the family ::
For the past several months, Mother has been helping the younger children memorize 26 verses- one verse for each letter of the alphabet. The promised reward (when they completed memorization) was an ice-cream party for the whole family. (Of course, everyone was delighted with that arrangement!) Finally, Denver, Taylor, Liz, Hudson, and Rebecca individually quoted the required 26 verses. We celebrated with Breyer's ice-cream topped with peanuts and chocolate sauce. (recipe below)
Bontrager's Chocolate Ice-cream Sauce:
8 oz. Hershey's dark chocolate chips
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil on very low heat. Serve over ice-cream. What we love about this recipe is that the chocolate sauce hardens when you put it on ice-cream! The little children (and the big) think that is so cool!
