Bible Bee- A Chance For Free Registration!

     Recently I shared about our family signing up for the Bible Bee. Excitement is building and the kids are ready for the package to arrive that will help them learn Bible verses and prepare for the competition. Heather asked if it was limited to the USA. I found out that the competition is, though anyone can order the materials and study with their family.

     As I read the website and ask questions I've learned more about the Bible Bee.


How can 2 cards a week and 20 minutes a day
     deepen your family's relationship with Christ?



Our desire is to help your family move closer to God and closer to one another as you learn, live out, and celebrate His Word. Register your children ages 7-18 years for the 2012 Bible Bee and learn how we can equip and encourage a lifestyle of investing in and living out your relationship with Christ.

In return for the $30 Registration Fee, each contestant receives, on June 1st:
  • 25 Bible Memory Cards. That works out to just over 2 cards per week during the summer, a "do-able" goal for your whole family!
     
  • A Bible in one of five translations
     
  • A "Sword Study" in-depth study on one book of the Bible leveled for three age groups, enabling the whole family to study the same book at the same pace. Sword Studies don't just teach the Bible, they teach a lifelong skill of how to study and apply the Bible, in just 20 minutes a day.
     
  • An official participant Bible Bee T-shirt and button
     
  • Gifts from our ministry partners that support the Sword Study learning
     
  • A Parent Guidebook that gives a solid overview of the study and includes a Family Bonfire Guide, so that you can easily lead your family in fun times of learning and sharing what the Lord has taught you throughout the week.

Other resources, such as custom Musical Scripture CD's (word perfect verses in any of five translations), several computer software games and programs and an iPod/iPhone app, all help make Bible memorization an attainable goal for you and your family.

You can join with other Bible Bee families at fun summer events led by Local Hosts! 

Your children can show their progress in the Word at an encouraging Celebration Day on Saturday, August 25th!  The top 300 from across the country will be invited to compete for $260,000 in prize money at the National Competition!

 Finally, the material you were looking for to help your whole family grow in your relationships with Christ, together!

Family Registration is open April 1- May 31st. Register by May 14th to ensure delivery of materials on June 1st.   


     For a chance to win one free registration to the Bible Bee as well as a parent's giude, share your best tip for helping your children memorize God's Word.


     Kids are split by age and we have one in all three of the divisions. I read through the rules to the kiddos and we are all looking forward to receiving our kits in June. Another family in our homeschool group signed up, too, so we will get to practice our verses with friends.

  1. The best tip I have for memorizing Scripture is repetition. We read it, draw it, post it everywhere. We make up tunes to sing it to and think of mnemonic devices to help us remember references.

  2. I have kids that could compete at every level. It sounds so exciting! We use repetition and songs. I find songs to be the best way to memorize. I have a friend that makes up motions to use with her kids.

  5. We put them on index cards and quiz each other and we also act them out to remember them better. So if it contains the word love in the verse we put our hand on our heart when we say that word.

  6. We like to memorize Scripture by setting it to songs!

  7. This looks like something that we could really use, as we struggle with staying on track with our memory work, and our kids are too young yet for the bible memory club we have in the area. Thanks!

  8. We use daily Bible reading, nightly devotionals, scripture memorization and fun scripture song CD's (like Seeds Family Worship, The Rizers, etc.) to encourage our children.
