Wizzy Gizmo: Fast Track Bible Pack - New Testament ~ a TOS review

Wizzy Gizmo Review

Wizzy who? I am sure that is what you are thinking just as I did a few weeks ago when this vendor popped on the scene. This catchy name of Wizzy Gizmo belongs to a technological genius who invents fun and fantastic gizmos to help children learn about God and the Bible with the help of books, audio dramas, and Fast Track Bible Pack: New Testament.

These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

~ Deuteronomy 6:6-7

We received the Fast Track Bible Pack: New Testament summary cards for this review. The flashcard set includes 27 cards printed on 5x9 sized sturdy cardstock. These cards are the perfect addition to any home as they are geared towards all ages and retail for just $14.99. Each of the cards in the set includes one book from the New Testament and covers:

~ the theme

~ a brief  summary

~ number of chapters

~  date of writing

~  an outline

~ key chapters & people

~ key passages &  doctrines

My greatest goal in life is to make God known to my children in every aspect of our life.  To teach them His words and help them hide them in their hearts so that when needed they can call on scripture in times of trouble. And most importantly know the truth. To utilize this resource in our homeschool we have been reading and studying one card a week. Lately, because  our main Bible curriculum has been focusing on Mark we are spending more time on this card as we dig into the word and learning about Jesus as a Servant.

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.

~ Mark 10:45

wg2Just after breakfast when we spend our time with Morning Time Recitations {MTR}, we focus on going over the info presented on the front and back of the card. As a great way to solidify the verses in their hearts I have the  girls draw out one key passage verse. It does not have to be an elaborate drawing, but something that they can remember the verse by. As we progress with our studies, I think that their drawings will get more and more complex and these group of verses will be a great keepsake for them. Also at dinner when the Lt is home we are able to have a quiz and fill him in on what we learned for the day.

Right now, I have the Fast Track cards stored inside of a small binder inside of sheet protectors. While the cards are printed on sturdy cardstock, I have little’s and I want to protect them just a little more. In the future, I may laminate each card. I have really enjoyed incorporating these cards into our daily work even if we have been taking it slowly. I also like that on the back of the cover card, each book is summarized, just like a table of contents for quick reference.

If you are looking to provide an in-depth study of each book of the New Testament, then Fast Track Bible Pack: New Testament is the perfect product to do this. I wholeheartedly, hands down recommend this product for everyone! I love that it is economically priced and fits my budget. My only wish is that Wizzy Gizmo will offer an Old Testament set in the near future as well!
