Happy Saturday everyone! Thank you so much for the work you do for the kingdom. It seems we hear of great tragedy in the news every day. It’s a reminder of how desperate the world is for a Savior, and all those who are suffering need our prayers. We hope you know how much we appreciate you.

A Look Into the Spring Training Conference

For everyone at the training conference held last week in Nashville, the time was full of fun, fellowship and learning. Trainers Scott, Rick and Steve spent both Tuesday and Wednesday teaching all the different ways to use WORDsearch in order to save time and deepen the study of God’s Word. This included how to use the in-depth search feature, how to create different desktops, the morphology tool and much more. At several points in the advanced training, the attendees clapped and cheered in appreciation of what they were learning about the program. If you weren’t able to make it (or even if you did!) here’s a look into what the conference looked like. We hope to see you next time!

The Best Way to Learn More About WORDsearch

pastors_training_conferenceWhen I look back on some of my most enjoyable and memorable times during my two plus years working for WORDsearch, attending our training conferences have to be right at the top of the list.

 The conference trips always help me realize:

  •  I’m very fortunate to be a part of such an inspiring event that glorifies God’s Kingdom
  • The users of our software are among the finest people I’ve ever met
  • What we do as a company and what our users do daily is truly having a positive impact on the world

If you have never been to one of our conferences, I would highly encourage you to join us at the LifeWay headquarters in downtown Nashville this March. The primary reason that people attend is for better knowledge of how to use the WORDsearch Bible program.  However, it’s much more than just that.

Have you ever wanted to be able to search a specific word or topic in your Bible to see everything it has to say on the subject? Doing this with a physical Bible could be extremely cumbersome and slow. With WORDsearch‘s searching tool, you can easily find every verse that mentions whatever word or phrase you choose to search. This can be a great help when creating sermons and lessons, or even just in your everyday study. Today’s quick tip will walk you through searching a word in a Bible and how you can quickly copy every occurrence into a word processor.

Quick Tip – Using Strong’s Numbers

quick_tips_fb

First of all, what are Strong’s Numbers?

Strong’s Numbers were prepared by Dr. James Strong and a team of scholars for over 35 years. With the numbering system tied to a particular word in English, the average lay-person can easily study the meanings of the Greek and Hebrew words. First published in 1890, this tool is still used today by pastors, scholars and laymen alike for nearly a century. They have become the standard for identifying  words linked to the original Greek and Hebrew words.

What We’ve Been Up To – “Just the Basics” Conference

563548_10151483383514643_78739560_nLast week, I had the privilege of flying to Nashville to attend our first WORDsearch conference of the year, held at the awe-inspiring LifeWay corporate headquarters. Having only been with the company for a little over a year, this was my first opportunity to venture out of our Austin office to meet some of the wonderful pastors and teachers that use our program.

It was raining and cold in Nashville, but that didn’t stop 68 men and women from joining us for a program touted as “Just the Basics.” It was a great introduction to the WORDsearch program, and the unique blend of styles from the four different trainers made it a truly worthwhile event.

Richard and Linda Perry, along with Steven Ward and Scott Winter, demonstrated the ease  of maneuvering around the program while showing how powerful the program is.  The attendees will no longer have to go back and forth to their bookshelves, skimming through book after book, not even sure what they were looking for.
