We show you a quote, and you have to decide if it is 1) a passage from the book of Lamentations, one of the more depressing reads in the Bible, as it details the destruction and demise of Jerusalem or 2) or a lyric from a Taylor Swift song, one of the more depressing songwriters of our generation, as she details every breakup and slight she'd ever suffered.

It's not as easy as it looks. Even your senior pastor will be stumped by these:

"You're like a lion ready to pounce."
"Your knives and swords and weapons that you use against me."

Students have fun playing it and even more fun watching it.

Students think TSwizzle has nothing on Lamentations
My group loved this game! Played it with HS last night and they really enjoyed it, especially with the truth that they had never really read from Lamentations.
Interesting Game!
A great game to go along with any Lamentations study. It helps open students eyes to the Bible and hopefully encourages them to be familiar with it! It's a fun game you can play anytime, or especially if you are teaching about the importance of God's Word.
It's crazy how similar the 2 categories are.
This game was super funny. It was really difficult for our students to tell the difference between the two categories, unless they were crazy T-Swift fans.
I was very disapointed that this game only came with 10 quotes to guess. I was expecting more than that.
Church loved it
I actually did this on a Sunday morning to do something different with our church. We had one of our older Sunday school teachers come up front to go head to head against a teenage girl in our youth group. The teenage girl won and the congregation had a lot of fun with it as well
Fun mixture of music and Bible
We played this earlier this month. It was great and exposed students to Lamentations. I played it with the whole crowd- those that thought it was a Lamentation stood up, those who thought it was Taylor remained seated. It was very fun!

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
