YMB #24 A New/Old Look at Memory Work: A Conversation with Kevin Vost


In this episode of Your Morning Basket we talk with Dr. Kevin Vost about the virtue of studiousness and the value of memorization. In this fascinating conversation, we are introduced to memory methods taught by church fathers that can help us today.

In the fast paced, information overloaded world we live in today we sometimes loose sight of the value of holding information in our own heads. Dr. Vost encourages us to work our memories because it is our past memories that guide our future behaviors.

    This was truly an interesting take on memorization. Thanks for always giving new perspective on traditional practice.

    • Dawn says:

      It’s amazing how much there is to learn and know that the ancients did, isn’t it? I haven’t tried this with my kids yet, but we’re going to. – Dawn, Community Care Coordinator

  • Stephanie says:

    I am listening to this for a second time. My 17 year old has trouble memorizing, period. This technique is easier to understand now that we have used the book, Yo, Millard Filmore to memorize all the presidents by pictures. My trouble is and I guess a question, is there something any of you have found to help you come up with the pictures to use? Take for example, a memory verse, I am lost as to what images to come up with for words such as inspired. Any input? Thanks in advance.

  • Stephanie M says:

    Very useful memorization technique! I learned this for the first time at a Dale Carnegie course to memorize topics I could bring up when meeting someone new.
