Word By Heart School

Our daughter, Kristen, helped to lead our second Word By Heart School here in Orlando. These schools are amazing as the students are immersed in one of the Gospels for the entire school. They learn the cultural and historical context of the stories from the Gospel, and as a result, the students are able to dramatically quote, word-for-word, about 90 minutes of the Gospel. They do this without rote memorization, but rather, like an actor, they are immersed in the characters. This results in a compelling telling of the Gospel with such authority that it seems like you are hearing an eye witness account of these events. Not only this, but students find their lives are changed dramatically from spending so much time meditating on the person of Jesus.
