November 16th through the 19th was the dates for the National Bible Bee Competition held in Nashville. It’s the desire of the organizers of Bible Bee to encourage parents as they disciple their children through in-depth study of the Word of God, Scripture memorization and prayer.
This year’s competition was Kari Erickson’s 3rd attempt which required 3-6 hours per day of work in order to memorize 1,100 Bible verses. The hard work paid off as she is the 2011 national Bible Bee champion and winner of $100,000.
Find out from Kari and her mother Kris how this impacted the atmosphere in the Erickson home, how it affected the discipleship of the Erickson children, how it affected Kari’s relationship with the Lord, how you can motivate your children to memorize Scripture verses, the response by the secular media and more.
