Icebreaker Game: What’s on ur phone?

Back in the day there was an icebreaker game called “What’s in your purse?” It was a fun game but it no longer works at most women’s ministry events. Have you noticed?

Why I Don’t Do Bible Games

I opened up Pinterest recently and groaned when I saw the “Bible games” in my feed. I know you’ve seen them – Bible Jeopardy, Bible Trivia, Match the Bible Couples, etc. “Bible games” are great for people who know the Bible.
