"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God" (Colossians 3:16).

On My Heart is a set of printable, double-sided flash cards that can be downloaded.
It's a handy way to memorize the Books of the Bible, the Catechism with Explanations, important Bible Verses, as wells as Timelines of Biblical Historical Events.
It is designed for catechumens and it goes along with the catechisms of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) and Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). You can also choose between four different Bible translations.
(I chose to download the WELS version with the NIV1984 translation.)
You can simply print out the pages. Or, if you prefer, you can print them out on cardstock and keep them together on a binder ring. Very handy!
