Questions & Answers
What were the highlights of your quizzing years?

The friendships made not only within my own church, but others in the quizzing program. These are some of my best friends still. It was always so fun to choose the quiz furthest away to attend, even if there were fewer teams. We were welcomed to spend the night at other quizzers' homes & get to know the quizzing families. We would stay an extra day and go to church with them before heading home. The Easter breakfasts we served to our church family as a fund raiser for Nationals were always a delight.

What was your favorite scripture? Why?

Romans 1:16
"I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile."

Romans was my very first book I studied in quizzing. It was my first Quote learned. This was my favorite verse because I was often sharing with school friends and classmates Scripture in everyday conversations. I would challenge my friends to think about why we believe what we have been taught.

How did quizzing affect you as a teen?

Quizzing encouraged me to get into God’s Word. The program offered opportunities to meet new friends from other churches. It was good to spend time learning about what Jesus & the life he had for me during the awkward teen years. I became close with my teammates and I had gratitude for all the leaders, coaches & quizmasters who encouraged me.

What difference has quizzing made in your life to this day?

Quizzing introduced to me the joy of not just reading or memorizing but studying God’s word. I so enjoy when in the middle of the messy parts of life, the scriptures memorized come flooding back just at the right time. I also discovered that I enjoy encouraging others to be the Word reading and the importance of memorizing.

What ministries are you currently doing? How are you presently active in serving the Lord?

I am serving as a quizmaster monthly as needed in the West Coast Region. I also serve in the Middle School group that meets at Timberlake Church in Redmond, Washington.
