A fun and effective way to help your kids learn is to incorporate music. Singing a catchy tune is a great way to memorize facts and to learn information.
I still know all of the US presidents in order because of a song I learned in 6th grade!
One area we especially like incorporating music is into our Bible scripture memorization and our favorite CDs for doing this are Hide ‘Em in Your Heart Vol. 1 & Hide ‘Em in Your Heart Vol. 2.
We have been using these CDs from the very beginning of our homeschooling journey, which started about 8 years ago.
It wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I had the bright idea to make scripture cards that go along with the verses we were learning from the Hide ‘Em in Your Heart CDs. I’m a visual person, and so are a few of my kids, so adding in the visual aspect of the cards with the music made memorization that much easier.
I don’t know what took me so long to come up with this idea; perhaps it was because I was working on putting together a portable calendar board, that included our weekly scripture, for us to use while our house is on the market and as we prepare for an out-of-state move (post coming soon with the calendar board details).
There are 41 4×6 cards total – 20 for Vol. 1 and 21 for Vol. 2. For best results, I suggest printing them on card stock and then laminating them. The 4×6 laminating pouches are perfect for these cards.
I’m offering these scripture cards FREE to My Joy-Filled Life subscribers. To get yours, simply subscribe by clicking the download button below and going through the checkout process (don’t worry, it’s FREE).
As a subscriber to My Joy-Filled Life you will get weekly(ish) updates and occasional information about great freebies, giveaways, and offers.
We only have the Lullaby version of Hide’m in your Heart CD, but we still love it. Our youngest is almost 8 now (sniff, sniff) but it’s still a favorite we like to play. I think even our older children will enjoy these! Thank you!

I wish I would have learned a president song – I love memorizing to songs & Scripture memory put to music is the best! Thx for all these great tips & fun printables. So glad you linked them up at the Thoughtful Spot!
I just wrote a blog post on these CDs that will be appearing in a week or so and I was wishing there were cards to go along with the verses! I’ll be linking to this post of yours, so I hope it helps you out, too!
These cards are gorgeous. #TeamMM

Anyway, I’m visiting from “Inspired By Me Mondays”; was so nice to have you join us last week!! Please come & stop by this week with some more amazing posts!! http://www.parentingandhomeschoolinginfaith.com
I really want to download these, but am having trouble accessing the link. I am already a subscriber, but did not receive an e-mail with the link this time. So I have tried re-subscribing, but have not gotten any e-mails that way either. Help?? Could you send me a link directly? And, no, your newsletters are not being sent to my spam folder…
It finally showed up with the re-subscription; thanks!
Glad you got it to work! Sorry you had to jump through hoops to get it.
Thank you so much for these scripture cards. I teach at a private Christian school where we are only funded by donations and fundraisers we hold. I will use these scripture verses in my first grade classroom so my kids can have a visual for the CD’s I just ordered too! May the Lord continue to bless you and the work you are doing.
Thank you so much for the beautiful scripture cards. They are lovely, and I can hardly wait to use them. :o)
Hello there, I am a new member and am trying to access some of the free downloads but I can’t find the link for them. Specifically, I’m looking for the Hide Em In Your Heart cards. Where do I find them?
Thanks so much!
Hi Teri – I’ve sent you an email! 😉
Thank you! We’ve been listening to the Steve Green CD’s for years now, and this will be a great way to cement the words in their hearts!
Can I purchase the Hide Them In Your Heart Printable without joining? Thank you.
No, I’m sorry, due to copyright laws I can not sell these cards.

Thank you for making these we use this music too.
I love these cards. My kids have been listening to these CDs since they were babies. I was so excited when I say these cards. I have the PDF, but wanted to see if I could print one card per page or have it in a letter size instead of a 4×6 so I can display in our school room. Do you know if there is a way to print only one per page? Thank you again for offering this AWESOME resource for free! Such a blessing!
No, I’m sorry, I didn’t make them in any other sizes.
Thank you so much for this resource. What a blessings!
