Nationals...Here We Come!

On Wednesday evening we all gathered around the computer eagerly awaiting our scores and National Placements! Amidst much excitement and screaming we found out that Bethany, David, and I all qualified for nationals! Sadly though, Ellia did not advance :( I came in 39th place with a total score of 771. ALL GLORY TO GOD!!!

I now have to memorize 750 more verses and study the book of Ephesians before Nationals...which is November 20-23, 2013.

Praise the LORD for His goodness!!!!!!

Because of HIM!

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

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…
