- This woman was a prostitute, the mother of Boaz, great great grandmother of King David and she hid the spies that Joshua sent into Jericho! Who was she?

How many did you get right?
If you got 3-5 correct, you know some of the main stories in the Bible, but you might be missing some of the cooler stories, so keep reading!
If you got 5-8 correct, you know the stars of the Bible pretty well! Keep up the great work and keep reading!
If you got all 10 correct, congratulations! I suggest talking with your youth pastor about opportunities to help teach Sunday school so you can share your love of God’s word with others!
PI girls, what is your favorite story in the Bible?
‘But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,’ declares the LORD, ‘I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people’ (Jeremiah 31:33).
