Memory Verse

Travis and I were challenged at our Young Marrieds study this past Sunday. I can't remember the last verse that I memorized. This is an area in my life that I struggle to make a priority. 
We absolutely love this group and don't think that our marriage would be the same without it. It was such an impactful way for Travis and I to build relationships together as a couple. Because I had lived in Chico for two years before Travis moved here, I had already established my relationships-- Chico was my home away from home. Becoming a part of our Young Married Bible Study, we have seen how God has blessed our marriage by providing such an honest, funny, and encouraging group of people. We have been able to make Chico our home... not just mine. 
In order to keep myself accountable and encourage you, I will be sharing our memory verse each week. 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

I wish I could walk around Japan and share this verse with everyone. I wish I had the courage to share this verse with people in my classes, at my work, etc. Maybe next week the verse will be on courage...
