Test Your Knowledge [Women in the Bible]

I just LOVE making up tests. Ever since I was a 2nd-grade teacher, one of my favorite ‘educator activities’ was designing tests, quizzes, and worksheets!

Since Mother’s Day is around the corner, I wanted to make up a little fun activity about Women in the Bible. Try it just for fun. Not a test taker? That’s okay.  Just forward it to a friend who is!

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day whether it is celebrating your mom, your grandmother, a friend, or just celebrating YOU.

I’d love for you to honor a special woman in your life by putting a 1 or 2-word description of them in the comment section of this blog, i.e. Mom-So kind; Grammy-Fabulous cook.
