Over...

It's hard to believe that locals is all over! It sped by so fast!! We all had a great time...it was SO much fun!

Early in the morning we got up and prepared for our big day...we made sure that we had everything, grabbed a quick bite to eat and then headed out. We went through the registration line and registered then we headed into the sanctuary to wait for the opening ceremony. After instructions, a song, and prayer the juniors and seniors headed downstairs to take the written test, while the primaries went for their oral rounds. After finishing the written test all the juniors and seniors headed back up for their oral rounds. After all tests were completed everyone headed back downstairs for lunch. We had a great time fellowshipping with others! With lunch finished we all went back to the sanctuary where each family went up on stage and shared a little bit about their Bible Bee experience. When each family had shared the top five finalists in each division were announced. Our host announced the primaries first and we were greatly delighted to hear "3rd place in the primary division...Ellia"!!!!!!! Ellia did very well considering that she had just recently learned to read and having to take the written test! Then the juniors were announced and the 1st place winner was....David!!!!!! Then the Seniors were announced! She announced 5th place and then 4th place and then 3rd place as Bethany!!!!!! Then they announced 2nd place and then "And 1st place in the senior division...Carissa"!! I was in total shock! ALL GLORY TO GOD!!!

We had a very wonderful and special day! Scores are posted on Wednesday and I can't wait!!!!!

Sorry I don't have any pictures...contestants weren't allowed cameras :)

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

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…
