Bible Memorization – Matthew 11:28

I believe that memorizing the Bible is important for everyone, of all ages.

I have encouraged my kids when they were younger to memorize Bible verses.

Sounds all noble like, doesn’t it? haha Both of the statements are true.

 

It’s also true that I don’t always devote enough time to memorizing the Bible. I still try. And I always will. I encourage you to try right along with me.

 

Please feel free to memorize this verse with me, or pick your own Bible verse to memorize!

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Chocolate Marble Loaf Recipe

 

I’ve been making this Chocolate Marble Loaf recipe longer than I’ve had kids.

And I’ve have kids forever. Ok, I’ve had kids for 31 years, and some days, that’s forever! lol

Anyway, this makes an excellent cake. Very moist and flavorful. No frosting needed.

1 tablespoon oil

This will make 12 slices, of course that depends on how thick you slice it. This is delicious served warm.

This cake is awesome by it self. Every slice looks different. For a fancier, and even more delicious desert, drizzle with homemade chocolate sauce and top with whipped cream. Too bad I didn’t have either of those on hand today. We just ate it plain, and no one complained. They all wanted seconds.

This recipe makes one loaf. Today, I doubled the recipe, which is why there are two in the pictures. I wrapped one for the freezer.

Now when someone comes over, I can pull out a delicious cake. Just defrost for a few minutes, slice and serve.
