Our family has participated in the Bible Bee for five years now. We have been very blessed by our years spent in the Bible Bee. The Bible Bee is a summer Bible study that your whole family can get involved in. There are study guides for each age level including Beginner and Preschool ones. I asked my eighteen-year old son to write a few words about his experience in the Bible Bee.
Memorizing scripture — if you’re reading this, you are probably already convinced of the value of scripture memory, but if you’re like me, you find it hard to be consistent.
Here are some KJV ABC Scripture Memory Cards I made for my daughter. The cards are also available in NKJV. We have long used and loved the ABC Scripture Set from Scripture Memory Fellowship. This summer when my boys were working on the Bible Bee, my little girl wanted flash cards like her brother, so I made these cards (after asking permission) with the verses in the ABC set.
I’ve been praying lately that God would help us focus on what’s important in our home. I was noticing a shift away from what’s truly important. Yes, our days were still filled with useful, worthwhile pursuits (for the most part), but I was wanting more for our home. I was feeling like the good was replacing what is truly excellent.
The world is a scary place to be raising kids. You just have to glance at the headlines in the paper to see that the world is turning against Christianity. How long will we or our children have the freedom to worship Christ openly? Unless God reaches down and puts a stop to this down-hill course our country is on, the freedoms we have been accustomed to will rapidly erode.
