Bible Quiz Weekend

Today we leave for our last regular Bible Quiz match of the season. Bible Quiz has been a big part of our family's life since 2000. The commitment is HUGE, but the rewards are great. I remind myself of that daily! Our kids are required to study 30 minutes a day, 5 days per week, with a parent. I have two kids in Bible quiz so I end up studying with them 5 hours a week. Many times I have wanted to quit but have never felt like I could. There are several reasons: 1.I have never seen anything that keeps parents more accountable than this program. The Bible instructs us to teach our children God's Word and after all the hours I have put in during the past seven years, they had BETTER know God's Word. 2. They get to travel three hours from home, stay in a hotel,hang out with friends, and enjoy a fun activity four times a year. 3. There is usually a great end of the year trip. We have been to Disney, DollyWood, Stone Mountain, the beach, and some other fun places all free of charge to my little quizzers and their daddy--he's a quiz-master. 4. My home-schooled children have had the opportunity to compete and win 1st place at the State and Regional level. 5. My kids have learned how to work hard towards a goal. At the beginning of each match, the quiz-master asks one of the children to pray and invariably a child will pray this prayer: "Dear Lord, help us to remember it's not about winning or losing but about hiding Your Word in our hearts. Amen" That is so sweet and precious and it shows that the parents/leaders have been teaching them the reason for this program. Competition is just a fun part of it--not the main reason for it! I am so proud of my kids and all they have learned and I pray God will bless their hard work this weekend. Take First, babies!

Sounds like a great a great thing. Our kids have done a program a little less than that called LTC (leadership training for Christ)... they work on a lot of different categories like drama, bible bowl, scripture memorization etc. and compete in the Spring. They enjoy the hotel experience too. My oldest daughter memorized 100 scriptures last year.
Good luck to yours!!! Have a great weekend!
