Here, finally is a quizzing post. For those of you that know me, you know that quizzing is huge part of my life right now. :) I love it, even though it is a lot of work, it is worth it! So here are some pictures of quizzing, studying, and a some other things.
It's the Hope Effect! :) Yes, our name is "Effect," and it comes from James 5:16, "...the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
My team is just...awesomeness! Laura, Lexi and me. I'm the oldest and the shortest. No surprise, huh? :)
Our team with our beloved-est coach. (Smiles) Also Laura's mom.
Me answering a question. Supposedly I put my hands on my hips when I don't know the answer, but I think I got this one.
High fives after a correct answers. A lot of high-fiving goes on at quizzing. It's cool.
Having a earnest discussion with Lexi. (Yeah, I know I look dorky on most of these pictures! hehe)
We made lots of new friends at quizzing this year. So fun! Some of them I remembered a little from other quizzing years, but not all of them. In this picture I'm talking to Trina from Weavertown...
....and this is Amber from Maranatha.
This quiz was awesome. I had one of my totally favorite quizmasters (Shawn King), and it was a really close quiz. We were quizzing some of our friends in the picture, Diego and Tiffany (Tiffany is in the black), and so a lot of laughing went on. :)
Time-out! This is when we receive moral support and advice from our coach. (My coach and my team are my support in stressful quizzes.) :) And so, even if we lose a quiz, we laugh and say "Better luck next time." :) Having a awesome all-girl team is so fun, it makes our team stick together in a special way.
Lexi and I! Yeah, I think we were feeling a little goofy.
These next pictures are of us studying, but I don't think too much studying was actually going on. :)
Yup, I study FTV! (Finish This Verse) I love it!
But here is a secret: I can't do reference. It seems my brain just can't handle it. :)
So to all the other reference quizzers...I'm no threat. Hehe
(Except 1 Peter 5! It only has 14 verses, so I can do reference on that chapter)
The opening verse. Man, I wonder how many times I quoted that verse? :)
Tired of studying, supposedly sleeping.
Okay, maybe not. :)
My darling little brother climbing the ladder up to the loft of the cabin.
We got tired of studying. :)
So that's quizzing, and I love it! :) If you are willing to study hard, it's worth the work and a fun and useful way to memorize the Bible. I used to hate memorizing, but quizzing fixed me up good and proper. :)
So if you ever want to try it...go for it!
