    I love it when a book or song comes into my life that is exactly what I need.  Don't you?  It seems like God is saying, "This one's for you.  Especially for you!"  I recently received Stones of Remembrance by Daniel G.

Dr. Amen is of the opinion (as I am) that ALL that we do impacts the brain.  What we eat, what we read, how we sleep, exercise, music, everything has an impact on the 'gray matter' in our head.  Consider Proverbs 23:7 (As a man thinks so is he.) and Joshua 1:8 (This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.) and Philippians 4:8 (Think on whatever is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, virtuous, praiseworthy and good.)

Amen, is a book written within the Christian Living genre, threaded together by themes of different disciplines: the spiritual discipline of Scripture memory, the mental discipline of exercising your brain, and the physical discipline of taking care of your brain by taking care of your body. Dr. Amen uses his research to engage the reader with encouragement from the Bible as well as practical application. A couple of things that made this book enjoyable for me as a reader: I really appreciated the way Dr. Amen incorporated physical health into the process of Scripture memory. In the first few chapters, he walks through the elements of rest, exercise, and healthy eating, and how these things are important to building up discipline in Scripture memory. This made Scripture memory seem much deeper and more holistic, and challenged me to think about how my own habits of rest, exercise, and eating, might be affecting this spiritual discipline in my own life. Another thing I appreciated was Dr. Amen’s encouragement for those who struggle with memorization or remembering in general. He did not write this book only for people who are good at memorization; he wrote it for everyone. Following the last element, Dr. Amen also included his own research on the brain and used this to back up his encouragements to those who struggle with memorization. He briefly explained the functions of the brain and how he’s found that our memory is a muscle. This was an extra element that (in my vast experience taken from my extremely long life on earth…yes, this is sarcasm) I’ve rarely seen in similar books. A couple of things that made this book difficult for me as a reader: Many of the Scriptures were taken very much out of context, and while they were intended to be encouraging to the reader and a starting point of memorization, the categories under which these singular verses are placed deny the original context of the verses, and can therefore dangerously miscommunicate their original meaning. Along these same lines, there was a section at the end of the devotional titled, “The Twelve Verses Every Christian Should Know.” I struggled with this section because it seemed more like a list of Scriptures that are popular in American Christian culture, though not necessarily necessary for Christians to know throughout the world. These are Scriptures popularized through interior designers and souvenir-makers, but there is little to support that these twelve verses are the verses that every Christian should know. While one of the things I appreciated about the book was Dr. Amen’s use of science, I also felt a lack concerning it. There were several chapters in which Dr. Amen touched on the science of the brain, but in a way that made the message I think he was trying to communicate convoluted. Despite the criticisms, however, it seems that this would be a good place to start for anyone trying to build up the spiritual discipline of Scripture memory. It takes the reader through memorizing meaningful Scriptures, one step at a time, to start exercising the muscle of their memory, and I would recommend this to those who are beginning this endeavor. About the Author: “Dr. Daniel G. Amen is a physician, a double board-certified psychiatrist, founder of Amen Clinics, a 10-time New York Times bestselling author, and an international speaker. Together with Pastor Rick Warren and Mark Hyman, MD, Dr. Amen is also one of the chief architects of Saddleback Church’s Daniel Plan, a program to get the world healthy through religious organizations. “Dr. Amen has written, produced, and hosted many popular public television shows about the brain that have aired across North America. He has spoken for the National Security Agency, and his work has been featured in outlets including Newsweek, Time magazine, the Huffington Post, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and Men’s Health.” *A complimentary copy of this book was provided to me by Tyndale Publishers. 🙂

In terms of its contents, this book is a short one at just over 100 pages, and I was able to read it quickly on the morning of a very busy Sabbath.  Even so, this is the sort of book that I could easily see myself returning to to read some of its chapters over again as the source of Bible study in certain moods.  The first part of the book discusses twelve spiritual disciplines that improve the memory of believers:  rest, exercise, meditation and prayer, eating healthy, meaningful work, bonding with others, relaxation, absolution (forgiveness), new learning, concentration, enjoyment, and socialization.  To be sure, some of these are areas I personally struggle with, and the author includes scriptures that encourage these particular beneficial behaviors.  The second part of the book contains twelve verses to remember when the reader is dealing with the following concerns:  anxiety, gratitude, fear, depression, happiness, doubt, loneliness, sickness, anger, a need for strength, tiredness, hopelessness, impatience, insecurity, and a need for comfort.  Again, many of these situations are ones I have to deal with and have had to deal with for long periods of time.  The third part of the book is a brief one that gives twelve verses in the Bible that every Christian should know.  After that comes some appendices that discuss tips for memorizing scripture, healthy snacks for boosting memory, and easy exercises to help one improve one's memory.   This is a book that straddles the worlds of physical and spiritual health.  Without knowing what the writer has to say about memory in large amounts, as was the case in the author's previous work, it is hard to recommend that book.  Even so, this book provides a use of scripture in order to improve mental health, and that is an area of massive personal concern.  This book has a modest goal in terms of helping to improve mood and memory, but it manages to achieve those goals with excellence, and to serve as a modestly sized but worthwhile resource for believers.  As there are many people with concerns about mental health, improving memory, and staving off dementia or other such illnesses of the brain and mind, this book has a large target audience, and one that will likely find improving memory and simultaneously improving one's knowledge of the Bible to be a worthwhile task.  While this book did not reveal to me a great deal of the author's own original thought, the author's approach in looking to scripture for improvement in many aspects of one's life is one I wholeheartedly appreciate and one that makes me interested in knowing more about what this author has to say about memory and the Bible.

    When I read this book it read to me like a promise book. I don't just believe Daniel Amen's words that in living out the words of the Bible will help memory, but also elevate your quality of life. It has been proven that if you want to get some where you have to start walking. So it is with memorization, meditation, and in living out a rich and qualitative life in Jesus (sorry for big words).

I don't just believe Daniel Amen's words that in living out the words of the Bible will help memory, but also elevate your quality of life. It has been proven that if you want to get some where you have to start walking. So it is with memorization, meditation, and in living out a rich and qualitative life in Jesus (sorry for big words). In other words, when we memorize scripture, when bad moments come we can walk through relatively unscathed and worse for wear as God's word is imprinted on our hearts. It takes a lot of effort and time committing scripture to memory, but it is hugely beneficial to do so. Just as we all memorize certain things for our jobs, for our relationships, and to advance in our careers, memorizing truly important things shows where our hearts lay. That's one thing I didn't see Dr. Amen say, but I'm saying it on his behalf. In my experience, with my walk in Christ, if I want to show Him that He is mine, I need and ought to put forth the effort of remembering the things He said and live my life as though it was His. The result is a changed life. Paul said, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God" (Romans 12:2, Berean Study). I want my life to show I belong to Christ. It doesn't mean I won't experience pain, suffering, heartache, heart break or the moment in which I sin. It means God is so in my heart, my mind, my soul, that regardless what happens He is with me. It coincides with what God told the patriarchs of our faith: "Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you" (Genesis 28:15). We want to see a God who exists? Commit some of the things He said to your heart, and in those moments you feel you can't see or hear from Him, guess what will happen? He'll prove Himself all over again, just as He said He would. Look to Deuteronomy--Deuteronomy 31:6--where God tells Moses the same thing He told Abraham in Genesis. The writer of Hebrews expresses the same thing once again as well in Hebrews 13:5. It just goes to show we can have our own memorial of where we have been and come from, just as Daniel Amen describes in his little book Stones of Remembrance. I have received a copy of this book from Tyndale Blog Network for an objective and honest review.

    As more and more people are living longer than they once did, research keeps growing on how to keep us fit in every area. One of the major fields of study focuses on how to keep our brains functioning as healthily as possible. Of specific concern is how to keep our memory working optimally. In his new release, Stones of Remembrance, Dr. Amen focuses on the significance of memory. He writes: “Memory enables us to bring the joys, dreams, and lessons of yesterday into today.

One of the major fields of study focuses on how to keep our brains functioning as healthily as possible. Of specific concern is how to keep our memory working optimally. In his new release, Stones of Remembrance, Dr. Amen focuses on the significance of memory. He writes: “Memory enables us to bring the joys, dreams, and lessons of yesterday into today. As we recall God’s faithfulness, we remain centered and growing, and we move forward with a sense of purpose. Memory allows us to keep our loved ones close, even when they are far away. It assures us that our personal history and experiences matter – that we have something valuable to teach generations to come.” From this foundation and biblical base that God designed our brains to remember, the author reminds us that throughout the Bible we are encouraged and commanded to remember. When we remember His Word and stay in touch with His promises, we are more likely to stay on course. We know how key that is to us spiritually, but Dr. Amen goes on to point out how vital it also is to our brain health. “But it’s not just our spiritual well-being that benefits from remembering. Participating in regular spiritual practices such as Scripture meditation, memorization, and prayer also contributes to a healthier mind and body by reducing stress, increasing brain capacity, and even guarding against memory loss… The stronger your brain becomes, the stronger your memory becomes. And the stronger your memory becomes, the stronger you become.” I have had the opportunity to participate in several teaching workshops presented by Dr. Amen as a part of my clinical counselor continuing education and learned so many things we can do personally to impact our brains and overall health. It was a delight to be able to review his new book.

He begins the book by addressing 12 Spiritual Disciplines for Improving Memory (rest, exercise, relaxation, absolution, etc.). Then, there are powerful  verses categorized by issues we feel today (anxious, grateful, depressed, lonely, sick, etc.), that comfort the reader by reminders of God's promises. Dr. Amen then lists pertinent verses every Christian should memorize. Finally, he ends with practical tips, hints and food to increase memory. In Joshua Chapter 4, we read about how God instructed Joshua to give a stone to one man from each tribe, and instructed them to put the stones together to build a memorial of how God keeps His promises. God told them to explain future generations the purpose of the stones were a reminder of God's miracles. The title of this book is a perfect description of the what Dr. Amen writes on the pages. As the new year begins, I am carrying this book in my purse as not just a reference for quick comfort to find related scripture for my changing circumstances, I want to use it to memorize as many verses as possible. This is one of the most influential books I have ever read and will give copies to all my friends so they can share in the blessings from this treasure. *I was given a complimentary copy of Dr. Daniel Amen’s  "Stones of Remembrance"  from Tyndale Publishers to review this book.

I have been on a mission to remember the things God has done for me and those I love. I did not initially realize that this little is a companion to a book entitled Memory Rescue.

I have been on a mission to remember the things God has done for me and those I love. I did not initially realize that this little is a companion to a book entitled Memory Rescue. The timing of me reading this book hit me pretty hard as I sat in the neurologist's office with my dad for his dementia that is progressing. It is truly one of the hardest things I have dealt with. It's hard loving someone so much and being able to do nothing to help them. If my help involves change for him of any kind, he doesn't want my help at all. It's a deep ache to miss people who are not missing from you physically. As this disease progresses, I feel like I need to read everything I can to help me transition to this next phase of life. It seems like that angst of having your first child. I have no idea what I am stepping into and want to be prepared as possible. I'm thankful for all of the people who have gone before me into this wild unknown. I am grateful for those who have left guidebooks so that the journey does not feel so lonely. This book is small. It has just a few simple pages on the brain and a lot of scripture to deal with what our brain throws at us. As I read through the pages, I felt conviction and great hope. It's something I could easily see myself tucking in my purse or at my bedside table to read again and again. I have not read the book that this is a companion to, but this book was encouraging and gave battle verses for life in the unknown. Memory Rescue is on my wish list. I recently ordered another book that the Neurologist recommended called 36 Hour Day. It's about caring for people with Alzheimer's and Dementia.

    "Stones of Remembrance" is a book of Scripture verses to read when afraid, angry, etc., or to memorize to strengthen your memory. In the first section, the author very briefly talked about the benefits of sleep, exercise, meditation and prayer, eating healthy, meaningful labor, close relationships, relaxation, forgiveness, learning new things, concentration, a positive focus, and being a part of a community. Under each of these subsections, he included several verses relating to that topic.

In the first section, the author very briefly talked about the benefits of sleep, exercise, meditation and prayer, eating healthy, meaningful labor, close relationships, relaxation, forgiveness, learning new things, concentration, a positive focus, and being a part of a community. Under each of these subsections, he included several verses relating to that topic. Since topics like exercise aren't directly addressed in the Bible, some verses were a bit of a stretch. For exercise, he suggested verses about running the race or God giving us strength. The second section contained 12 Scripture verses each "to remember when" you're anxious, grateful, afraid, depressed, happy, lonely, sick, angry, tired, impatient, unsure of yourself, experience doubt, need hope, need comfort, or need strength. The third section had 12 Scripture verses that "every Christian should know." At the back of the book, the author included a list of tips for memorizing verses, a list of healthy snacks for boosting your memory, and a list of activities that can help improve your memory (like doing crossword puzzles or learning something new). I'd expected information about studies on how Scripture memorization helps your brain, so I was disappointed that he only included a few sentences about this. But I'd recommend this book to people who enjoy collections of verses for reference or memorization. I received this book as a free review copy from the publisher.

Prior to reading this wonderful book I would quickly discard as useless any idea that a certain number of steps would bring success to the reader. I’ve read several that fell dramatically short of such a claim. But, “Stones of Remembrance” has broken the mold and opened my eyes. Amen has divided the book into three distinct parts, each with Bible verses to remember. If you are like me, you probably stiffen a little at the thought of memorizing verses as a requirement to improve your life and memory. Fear not, Amen has included memorization steps that open doors to brain power, encouragement and success. Memorizing Bible verses will not only exercise your brain but will uplift your soul. “Stones of Remembrance” is a quick read (117 pages) the first time through but it will become an important spiritual weapon in your arsenal.

    Very practical and easy read; great to refer back to If you’re looking for something extremely in-depth, this probably isn’t for you. But this book was very short, sweet, and to the point. I loved that he quickly shares benefits of memorizing scripture and also gives tips on how to do that. The verses given for when you’re feeling xyz would be great to refer back to or is a good place to find the next verse you want to memorize. I liked this book overall and definitely appreciate the content!

    I liked this book. I borrowed it from the library but didn't start on it immediately. I wasn't allowed to renew it when it became due as 2 others had it on hold. It was worth the wait though. It includes helpful tips on Scripture memorization and suggestions on exercising your brain and keeping it healthy in general. I liked this book.

    Based off of a system that Daniel Amen uses is scripture presented and meant to be memorized. I believe the system works, along with his recommendations about food to eat to boost brain power as well as different things to try to help you memorize. Very well done.
