It’s Spiral Time, Sisters! Let’s Spiral Up!

Hey, you wonderful Siestas! GUESS WHAT I’M HOLDING IN MY HAND???

Need to see it closer up? Come on, now! Is this darling or what??

You ready to get busy on some Scripture memory in 2013? I AM! I AM! I can hardly wait! Our instructional post for our Siesta Scripture Memory Team (SSMT) will be published in mid December but, in order for most of you to have your spiral in your hands by the time we launch on January 1st, we need to start taking orders right away. Mind you, the official Siesta spirals are completely optional. You can easily pick up a generic spiral at any office supply or virtually any drug store chain. But having the same one is a ton of fun for those of us who like this kind thing! We use them all year to record our 2 verses a month then we bring them with us to the celebration in Houston in mid-January 2014 (egad!) as our ticket into the (free) event. And yes, any well-used Scripture memory spiral will serve the same purpose.

Our SSMT spirals are $4 each, plus a fairly nominal shipping and handling fee. You’ll see that on the order form. We try to keep the price as low as we can and still cover costs. To order your SSMT spiral, visit the LPM website by clicking here. Please, please try to make your order before or by December 19th for delivery by January 1st. For those of you who don’t get word about the spirals in time for January 1st, no worries. You’ll still sign in on all the posts like everyone else and just fill in your verses the moment you get yours. Even if you don’t make your order until January, you’ll have it in your sweet hands before you’ve had time to get to your 3rd verse out of 24. No big deal!

If for some reason you have problems with the link, go to:, then click on “Store” and under store click on “New Products”. It is the third to last item under “New Products”.

Here are a few questions I’m anticipating:

*Can I still get one of those cute spirals if I don’t necessarily want to sign up for the accountability twice a month on the blog team? Yes, you certainly may. You are welcome to use it for anything you want but we so hope you’ll write some Scriptures in it! That’s what it’s begging for. Smile.

*May I order more than one spiral? Yes. A number of you have already told me in advance that you’ve got daughters or sisters who are joining you this year on our Scripture memory team. You are welcome to order yours together if you live in the same town.I also like to use them for Christmas stocking stuffers for my daughters and special loves but shhhhhhh. I don’t want them to know.

I am beside myself! It is everything I can do not to go ahead and start writing verses in mine. Now, to find the perfect pen! Just think what awaits us on this page right here…

I love you guys so much. I am so blessed to journey with you in our pursuit of Christ. Nothing we’ve ever done on the blog has produced more fruit or seemed to incite more obvious favor from God than Siesta Scripture Memory Team. May it please Him more than ever in 2013!

    Barb says:

    Hey! I want to be a part of the memorization tho I did the year before when I was driving to work by myself. Now my husband & I drive together & it’s not so easy to say my verse 100x while he is trying to visit. πŸ™‚ So I have to figure out when else I can memorize…and while your notebook is so very cute, I am going to use my brightly colored one instead. Thank you for spuring us on to stay in the Word!!! Much love to all!

    I just got mine yesterday and I thank you very much for the speed. However, I also got a notice yesterday afternoon that my order has been shipped and are due to be delivered tomorrow, Wednesday, 12/12/12. If I have another set coming, what should I do about it since I only ordered five and I got all five yesterday.

    Thank you and God Bless,

    Yee Haw!!!!!! I participated in 2011, LOVED EVERY MINUTE!!!!!! Can’t wait to start all over, have been writing scriptures in my spiral every time a verse just leapt up and grabbed me by the heart and mind and soul. I still have my ziplock bag of dirt from the Houston airport. Stopped the rental car, jumped out grabbed some dirt, then I returned the rental and flew home. I am just busting with excitement, I think I just might burst. Thank you for hosting this LPM, it is an absolute JOY! ((((BEAR HUG))))

    I am SO excited for SSMT 2013! I participated in SSMT 2011 and it was amazing and you all “carried” me through some really dark days with your verses. There were times when I’d just get on here and read the comments because I needed a flood of truth and light. What a great network of sisters!

    I just want to say how much I enjoy Beth’s studies. I belong to a small womens group who meet on Monday evenings. Not only to study Gods word, but to support each other. We are of different faiths and backgrounds, all the ladies are beautiful.

    We have done several of the studies plus others.

    I have ordered the spiral and I know alot of women have, but I have yet to receive it. Is there some kind of delay in shipping?

    Denise says:

    I thank God for you Beth, being willing to listen to his bidding. I was finally able to say Psalm 86 from memory instead of writing it out in my prayer journal. Thank you so much for encouraging me to do this from one of your Bible studies. God’s word, from this particular chapter has gotten me through one of the toughest years of my life. This would include 11 weeks of a job that I thought I wanted, but what I had prayed for was how to potty train a 2 yr. old boy. I did learn and he is trained.; my husbands muscle tear on a knee that had been replaced a year earlier, my Mom dying suddenly from a broken femur bone and my sister withdrawing from me while we were both grieving because I was stating my boundaries. Praise God and thank you for all your hard work.

    Gretchen says:

    I am so excited to participate this year. Tried it a couple of years ago and didn’t finish. This year I am determined to complete this goal. Ordered my spiral tonight and am so anxious to get it. So excited to get closer to God’s word!!!

    I’m Baaack!

    Hi Beth,
    I could not help but smile when I saw you holding that cute spiral. I was at the first SSMT celebration and what a JOY it was. I have done all sorts of wandering and trying to make my own way (NEVER a good idea) but I am back now and so very excited to do this scripture memory with these wonderful siestas again. It really is life-changing and beautiful!

    Hope you have some spirals left…I’m still need to order mine. πŸ™‚
