Brigadoon!

We just found out today that we made it into Brigadoon the musical!  Haley and I are chorus, but we are happy to have got a part!  Also, Grant and Vince got into Aristocats,  Grant is a semi-main part, and Vince is chorus!  We are all excited, now we just have to wait for Bible Bee National results!

Coming soon so, stay tuned!
{I am planning on posting about what I have learned from my study of Colossians for the Bible Bee}

{Bible Bee}

On Saturday we had our local competition for the Bible Bee!  We had a great time, but the most important part is what we have learned.  I have been able to use a lot of the verses that I memorized for different instances in my life already. 
God has taught me to stay faithful,  when I first was starting my study I was overwhelmed, I thought that I would just quit.  I am so glad that I kept on going,  I feel like I can say, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.  (2 Tim. 4:7)"    God helped me and my siblings keep going!



Haley took first place in her category!

I had a great time taking closeups of the trophies!


~I love all their symbols for everything~

The best thing is that we can never be sorry that we tried, you always will win no matter what when you are studying God's word!   Me and my siblings are always going around singing Bible verses! 

We find out on Wednesday who made it to nationals.  I will let you know.

Corn...


We blanched corn last week!  I love this time of year!

Genesis 1:1-2
In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters.

My own Vacation Bible School!

The other day we were out playing with the little neighborhood children, first the game was a work camp, then a school, then I changed it into a Bible school!    We asked the children what they thought they had to do to get to heaven, all of them had the wrong answer, so we explained that it wasn't the good works that get you to heaven, but excepting God as your personal savior.  All of them wanted to pray to except Christ, so we prayed as a group then me and my brothers, Vince and Grant worked as councilors for those who wanted to know more.  I think that a few of them are quite serious about their new faith, we passed out Bibles and are becoming one big family of God's Children!

{The first day}

Some of the new little Christians!

I can already see the difference in their lives, a few of the children were expert liars, they have already stopped being untruthful and saying bad words!

The counseling groups went very well.  Hunter is very excited and is the one who wants me to do it every day!

: : I handed out little crosses to everyone : :


We have had the meeting two days in a row now,  and I am planning on doing it with all the children that want to every day I can!  I am planning on going through the topics that Bright Lights covers and using it as a format for my lessons.

Mathew 28:19
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Happy Anniversary!

If you can't tell, I have been trying to get caught up on my posting today : )  But, I had to say happy anniversary to my wonderful parents! 

They have now had 23 years together!  My parents have always been Godly examples and I am very thankful to them.



Thank you for being such great parents!

Psalm 127:3-5 (New International Version)

3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth.
5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
