Hard to believe the Bible Quizzing year is almost done, only two more days and then it’s over. This is the third year Jonathan and Elizabeth have been involved and I can honestly say we have no regrets. Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry but it was worth every minute of it. I know Bible Quizzing will only help my children in this dark end time. Some things may be taken from them, but no one can ever take the word of God out of their hearts. It will form an impenetrable force around their minds that will shape their decisions.
It’s so cute to watch them sometimes, They’re like little walking Bibles, they quote the scriptures while the preacher is preaching and sometimes when the scripture is being read, if it’s a passage they’ve covered, they don’t even bother to turn there, they just cite it from memory!
I HIGHLY recommend Bible Quizzing (hereafter BQ) to every parent with children between the ages of 5 and 18 years old. Yes, I know our children can learn maybe 30 scriptures on their own over the course of a year, but in BQ they learn up to 200 verses! These verses stay with them forever, when trouble comes -as we know it will, a relevant verse will pop up in their minds to help them get through. If they don’t have it, God can’t bring it back to their memory in times of need. BQ starts in September and concludes with finals in June. These amazing children are asked to quote and analyze scriptures under extreme pressure before -in many cases- an auditorium full of strangers. They are given 5 seconds to respond and 30 seconds to complete their answers.
Like Karate and Tae-Kwon-Do, BQ teaches self discipline and excellent study habits, because of BQ my kids are better students in their secular schools. Also, statistics show that over 80% of children that are involved with BQ stay in the church and are mightily used of God.
One of the best things about BQ is the socialization, my daughter and her team from NY now have buddies from West Virginia, Delaware, Florida, South Carolina, Maryland, and more places I don’t have time to list. Actualy, so do I. It’s been great meeting parents and couches who believe this great ONENESS Gospel all over the nation from all walks of life. One parent/coach is an officer in the US Air Force, pretty cool huh 🙂 That leads me to another great benefit, BQ gives our family an excuse to drive or fly away for a couple weekends out of the year to compete in different states, and while we’re there, it doesn’t hurt to do a little sight seeing 😉
I’m excited that our youngest Joel, who is four years old and just learning to read, will be starting BQ in September. Oh, and it helps speed up the reading process as well. Bible Quizzing is AMAZING! Ha ha! Seriously though, it is…
So this morning, in preparation for the dog days of summer and lots of play-dates, I took the old destroyed padding off the trampoline and I’m hoping to find a replacement at Walmart in the next few days (Lord willing).
All Done… now I just have to clean all the leaves out
So come on moms and dads, let’s make Bible Quizzing a priority. Will you join me?
