I'm in the process of sharing quotes, tidbits, and reflections from the various sessions at the Apologia Live Retreat which I had the opportunity to attend recently. Start here to read about my over all experience at the Apologia Live Retreat and head over to this post to read reflections from other sessions.

I have to be extremely open and honest here. I did NOT have high expectations for Pam Tebow's session at Apologia Live. Sometimes when you have a really high profile speaker at a conference, they are hyped up so much that their talk falls flat. Or, they are so “famous” that they are arrogant.
I'm so glad to report that I cannot lump Pam Tebow in with those types of speakers.
I took plenty of notes during Pam's session, but I don't plan to share any of those notes. Pam's whole talk was filled with scripture. She quoted more verses than I can count. She sang scripture to us just like she did to teach them to her kids. That's what stood out to me. The importance of memorizing scripture with our kids and allowing it to overflow into everything that we do.
I was in awe through the whole session.
I was inspired.
Every other sentence out of this women's mouth was a verse of the Bible – from memory.
It was encouragement to perserve. Keep memorizing scripture with my boys and find ways to hide it in their hearts because those passages will be there when they need them later in life.
It was encouragement to find ways to memorize more scripture myself.
