Favorite Scripture

So many have come back at necessary times over the years. Some that stand out are: Hebrews 11:6; Matthew 11:28-30; Acts 2; Hebrews 12:1-3; and I Peter 5:6-7. These particular scriptures stand out because they have been the foundation upon which my faith has grown. During very difficult times and circumstances, I found my heart drawn to these verses and they have taken an even deeper meaning through the years.

Questions & Answers
Did you or your team win any championships? If so, what and when?

The closest my team came was 4th in 1989.

Did you receive any other special quizzing awards? If so, what?

Our team won the Spit Shine Award one year, and I won several trophies at the local level.

How did Quizzing affect you as a teen?

It was a wonderful social event. The trips were great as outlets during those years. I made friends for life. I learned and applied the Word, and it still comes back to this day!

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

All the Scripture in my head and heart has profoundly influenced my faith and my walk. Not only has the word been applied to my life, but the opportunity to have it all buried and locked in my heart has given me confidence to proclaim the word to others. There are not many days that go by where I do not recall verses or the experiences of my quizzing years. Bible Quizzing became a foundation for me and something that I promote whenever I get the chance.

Are you presently involved in Bible Quizzing in any way or have you been since you were a quizzer? If so, how?

I rejuvenated the Park Ridge FMC team in Rochester (NY) before moving to Chicago. Since then, I have not been involved. I am considering starting a team through the Olive Branch Mission in Chicago.

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

Currently I serve as a vice-president for Olive Branch Mission in Chicago, IL. I have helped to plant two churches in the area and have helped in expanding OBM overseas into Central Africa.
