2013 Bible Bee

It has already been over a week since our whirlwind trip to the National Bible Bee. What a privilege and honor to share at such a powerful event! Our warmest congratulations to each of our readers who made it to Nationals as competitors. It was such a joy to meet and visit with many of you! 

Thank you for your prayers for us during this time. It was an awesome responsibility to share during the opening ceremonies and and other events over the weekend. We trust hearts were encouraged. Here are a few pictures: 


Warming up and preparing the sound system ahead of time. 


Smiles! Fun to have new coordinating colors for the trip.

Behind stage. This is such an important part of everything we do: family worship and prayer. Numerous times the Lord has used this simple act in our family to knit hearts, correct attitudes, and unify our purpose. It reminds us that indeed, "we are weak, but HE is strong". Treasured times. 


Opening Ceremonies


"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, 
but you shall meditate in it day and night, 
that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. 
For then you will make your way prosperous, 
and then you will have good success."
Joshua 1:8

It was such a blessing to hear your beautiful music at Nationals! I hadn't realized that your family was going to be there and we were excited when they mentioned that during a webinar before nationals. :) Love how you coordinated your new outfits, too, and my favorite picture is the one of you all praying - so precious. Blessings!!

Love the new outfits! Does that mean you will be releasing a new CD soon?! {*please*....lol}. Not sure the name of it, but you guys shared a song at Alan and Rachel's wedding (I'm thinking "exceeding abundantly" and so on). I heard part of it on a Youtube video and would love if you would cover it in an album! :)

Cute new outfits; I love the colors you picked! I think it's really precious that you chose to pray and worship as a family before each performance. What a wonderful way to truly dedicate your time on stage to Him!
