Keep going, Janet!
John 14 is my favorite chapter in John, especially the first part.

The value of this website to me has been in making the process of memorization more fun and easy, which means I will do more than I otherwise would have.
It's especially helpful for the early/mid phase of learning when you need more help and prompting, but also for revising verses in an organized way.
Luli, I want to encourage you in your goal of memorizing the gospel of John. πŸ‘
Knowing entire books of the Bible is extremely valuable, and I'm sure that will strengthen your faith and that you will be able to help others in their faith too! 😁

Yes, it would be nice to meet you all someday!
I hope my spiel wasn't too pessimistic, but I think that in the years to come, almost every Christian will wish they had done more Bible memorization.
Uplifting verses are especially valuable, because these are what will keep us going through dark times. 😊

Congrats Luli! 😁
Regarding the percentages dropping,
I would suggest to try resetting verses rather than following the program.
Initially I followed the website program intervals.
After 3 months or more passed without review, my accuracy was worse than the previous attempt and my percentage would drop as you mentioned.
Leaving it at 3 months would result in further dropping and I knew I was losing grip on that verse.
So I had to reset my progress often, because the review periods became too long to be effective.

Rather than know a lot of verses with an accuracy of 90%, I decided I wanted to know a smaller number of verses at 100%. (actually better than 100%)
So I chose 100 key verses to learn very well so I can quote them at any time.
Once I mastered those, I expanded it to 300+

Some of my favorite passages I may have reset 50 times or more, so the progress% means nothing to me, but I have them burned in my memory, which was my goal.

If your goal is to have the most number of verses completed on the computer system, then resetting verses will not help, but I would suggest that such a goal is probably not very useful for the real world.

Like when you are sharing your faith with someone?
How many relevant verses can you quote on the fly?
Or let's say hypothetically one day we are imprisoned for our faith and have no Bible.
How many verses will we be able to recite to keep our spirits uplifted?
The question for us on this website is:
How well do need to know a Bible verse to be able to recall it under any circumstance?
Is a score of 100% even enough?

Onfire thanks for that.
I stand corrected, you do earn points.
I suppose what I didn't like most about that method is that you get no choice of the next review date. It's either 12 months or not at all.
Neither of those choices were appealing to me.
My most common intervention is to "reset progress" before the intervals get too large and the verse gets lost in the system.

Bethia, I like to review verses much more often than the system allows.
I want to be able to recite them anywhere, anytime!
IMHO the system here doesn't give enough reviews per verse and doesn't have the option to shorten to review time.
The way to override the system is to hit "Reset Progress".
Once you fully learn a verse, you won't get this option anymore.

However, you can reset your favorite verses by this method:
Your name> Verse Progress > Hamburger icon > Practise ("your favorite verse") > Reset Progress

If there is a shorter way, I haven't found it.
I think the method described by Onfire doesn't earn you any points, and I don't think it resets the progress.

I just learned Ephesians, Colossians and Philippians this way.
This site is useful for additional practice.

I just found a new way to learn whole books of the Bible easily.
1. Find a well-read version of the Bible, such as the KJV dramatized:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXiRaCqjKQ0
2. Listen to it once every day.
When you are familiar with it, slow the speed down to about 75% and try to read out loud with it (eyes closed).
3. After a month or so, you should know it!

The key is to stay mentally engaged with the reading, so you are following the meaning, and when at stage 2, to be predicting what is coming next.

If you find some verses difficult, break them up into phrases and use repetition to burn them into memory!
