Ever since our daughter was a baby we have been saying Bible verses to her at bedtime.  We did the same thing with our son when he was born. Every night, after tucking our kids in for bed and praying with them we say these verses:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

For God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Children obey your parents in the Lord for this is right. Ephesians 6:1

Thy word have hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee. Psalm 119:11 (we just recently added this one!)

Both Madeline and Jake have had these memorized since they were 3 years old!  They love to recite their verses and even do it when staying with Grandma and Grandpa or when a babysitter puts them to bed!  Thanks for reading…
