I was just listening to Gregg Laurie on the radio (his live Sunday morning service). He was talking about memorizing scriptures, and how we memorize so many other things, but we don't spend enough time storing the scriptures in our hearts.
"Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You." Psalm 119:11
When tempted by Satan, Jesus quoted scriptures to counter the ideas Satan was giving Him.
The word of God is such a powerful weapon, which verses do you have in your arsenal : )

When you were required to memorize was there much instruction on the meanings of the verses? I ask because my dd #1 was in AWANA from the time she was 3-6th grade. One thing I had noticed that the huge amount of verses required really prevented any study of the verses. So now even though she can spit out many verses she doesn't really understand a lot of what they mean. Was it that way for you?
