Valentine’s Day or not – no matter what time of year it is – it’s always a good time to talk about LOVE with your little ones!

I wanted to be intentional this year about teaching my kids Bible verses and about God’s love, so I sat down and searched the Bible for verses and decided to share them with you guys.

These verses will remind both you and your kids of the importance of the Lord’s love and His presence in our everyday lives.

They will enrich your perspective and serve as timeless lessons for days to come!

So, make sure to convey these precious lessons to your kids, and also, be sure to scroll to the end and get your free printable Bible verse cards (I’ve also included the single page version so you can frame them!)

A number of these memory verses are easy enough for preschoolers to remember but I have also included some that will serve as wonderful guidance as your kids get older and wiser, and are ready to take on more complex lessons.

Your free Bible verse printable

While I’m sure that a number of these verses were already known to you, I hope that I was able to inspire you with a few you haven’t had a chance to read for some time.

Personally, I’ve always turned to Bible verses to find strength during challenging periods in my life, and introducing them to my kids was incredibly important to me, as I’m sure it is to you!

They will not only help you convey the importance of God’s message to your little ones but will allow you to introduce them to some new vocabulary, which will help them in their overall development, too.

I’ve also created the list of my favorite printable Bible verse cards for personal use (and the ones even preschoolers can remember!) that are perfect for helping kids in their memorization of scripture.

Each card has an easy-to-read font for pre-readers or emerging readers.

There’s also a small picture on each scripture card for your child to color if they’d like!

  • Print them out and use them as lunch box notes
