Our KJV A-Z Memory Verses

I've seen lots of different lists for these on the Internet, but none seemed to be just right for our family.  Many verses were only partial verses in those versions, and weren't listed as such in the memory work (by indicating "a" or "b" at the end of the address). Others were missing words completely--like using Romans 3:23 for the letter a.  Last time I checked, "For" didn't start with A... ("For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;").

If we are going to take the time into memorizing Bible verses (which I think is essential..), I want to make sure we are actually learning the verses.  This is the list I came up with. Currently, my 3, 4 and 11 year old are memorizing them (along with me) at the rate of one a week. I am working on putting them on Owen's iPad as well, so he can share with us as well.
