Write like Shakespeare, Speak like Lincoln: Bible Memorizing as a Path to Extraordinary Communication
Why are presidents, pundits, and ordinary people alike still enamored with the cadence, idiom, and syntax of writers who've been gone two and three centuries? From Hamilton to Jefferson, from Twain to Franklin, from Shakespeare to Dickens, the English literary heritage has been definitely shaped by the rhythms, vocabulary, and structure of the English Bible. Cultivating powerful writers and speakers who speak beautifully and wisely begins with God's Word. "The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple" (Psalm 119:130). Come learn the time-honored, experience-honed principles of systematic Scripture memorization that will give your young writer and speaker something worth saying and hearing.
After Your Epic-Fail in Parenting
When our kids remember what we added (or subtracted) from their lives, what do we want to stand out? How would your kids finish this sentence? "My mom and dad had a real problem with [fill in the blank], but I have to give them credit, they really [fill in the blank] well ...." God's Word defines the sine qua non, the "without which nothing," the non-negotiable minimum quite differently from the way our culture does. Come focus on the imperative of imparting and implanting God's Word deeply, widely, and repeatedly.
