We Have Been There

Let’s not candy-coat it. Reciting combines the situations that cause most of us to recoil. Standing in front of a large audience and giving a speech –and not just any speech, but one without notes, that you have memorized, and the audience has a good idea about what you are supposed to be saying.

Getting to the point of being prepared can be a long road. Read below from those who have gone before you and learn how they faced their particular challenges and whether it was worth the effort.

3 Steps to a terrific Scripture recitation

Select a passage...
Commit to the specific passage you will recite and the date when you will recite it.
...understand it...
Research the context and intent of the message and the appropriate tone of voice.
...then say it!
Speak the message in a way that aligns with the original intent.

With our approach, you will be successful.
