For the time being, here is an example of making a story out of New Testament book names. (I wrote this in the car). Associating fun stories with Bible book names, to learn the order of Bible books. The bold names are plays on New Testament book names:

Matt and Mark spilt lukewarm soup on Jon who joined them in the act of eating roman noodles and two corn husks. A gallon of elephant-color paint was given to Phillip to color a column one of two themes. Two times, the Titanic was filled with herbs and jam that two pets ate between three jogs. It's not rude to reveal hunger.
