William Carey: Missionary to India

In England, on August 17, 1761 William Carey was born. Carey was converted at the age of 18. At the age of 25 he was appointed a minister. Even though he was very busy he still had time to learn five languages: Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Dutch, French, and English. June 10, 1781 he married Dorothy Plackett. Only 3 of their 6 children lived past the age of 5. Many people did not agree with him about missions one time one man said, “Young man, sit down! When God pleases to convert the heathen, he will do it without your help or mine!” Carey organized a missions society. At it’s first meeting he preached a sermon – ‘Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God’. On April 1793 he arrived in India. In December 1807 Dorothy died. In 1812 a fire destroyed the printing press. At the age of 73 William died. He had spent 41 years in India without returning home. As he died he said to a missionary, “Dr. Duff! You have been speaking about Dr. Carey; when I am gone, say nothing about Dr. Carey – speak about Dr. Carey’s God.” :

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

2016 National Bible Bee // Lesson #1

During my time as a National Bible Bee Contestant, I learned so much - not just through studying the Word, but also through participating. In the following few blog posts, I am going to share a few lessons that I have learned.

The National Bible Bee is a great incentive to memorize and study God's Word. The prize money that is given away each year is a large amount, so it can be very easy to focus on studying in order to do well and hopefully win. During my time as a contestant, I've struggled with doing it for the right reasons. Unless one is careful the prize money can become a snare. The recognition can become a snare. The trip to Nationals can become a snare. Even studying and memorizing to have more knowledge can become a snare. 
A lesson that was key in my studying this year was that I must focus on Christ. He is the true prize. I was studying, yes, to participate in the National Bible Bee, but the main thing was to know Christ better. He is the treasure found in the Bib…
