Actions to Take:
- If you have already been confirmed, think of your confirmation verse. Can you recite it from memory? Or have you forgotten which verse it is? If you can remember what it is, of if you have to take a trip down memory lane, write down the reference to your confirmation verse on a stone or a rock. Keep that rock somewhere you can see it on a regular basis as a reminder that you are a living stone and part of God’s house built on the Living Stone of Jesus.

- Luther wrote the Large Catechism as a guide for parents when teaching the Small Catechism. Ever read it? If not, take a portion and read it this week.
