I was excited to be chosen as a contributor to another awesome new book in the Kidmin Nation Library: Inspired: Unlocking Your Creativity. A huge thanks to Tina Houser for working so hard to edit and put together this incredible tool for kidmin leaders. This is the third book in a line of books Tina Houser has been working on to help kidmin leaders in all different aspects of their ministries. The first two books would be a great addition to your kidmin leadership library as well: Home Grown: How to Equip Parents for Spiritual Leadership and Irresistible: How to Engage Kids and Point them [...]

We probably went way overboard with the led tape for this set design, but who am I kidding, it looked awesome! We created this set for a super short series I wrote called You've Got Talent which is available for you to purchase right now. In this series, kids will learn to love their talents, use them for God, and contribute them to the body of Christ. They will learn from Craft Lady that we should love the talents God has given us and not compare ourselves to others. The cost for this set design was a little higher than usual due [...]
I can't tell you how excited I was to be added to the launch team for this book! It's definitely not specifically a kidmin book, but there is so much in this book that can be applied to any ministry area in the church. "The Come Back Effect" is all about how hospitality can compel your church's guests to return. I basically could have highlighted the entire book, it's that good. The book is broken up into ten chapters about ten big ideas to help you create an environment where guests will feel compelled to come back. I think my favorite thing [...]
I was thrilled to receive an email from Dan Scott about joining his blog tour for his new book: "Caught In Between". This book focuses on a group of kids that fall into most kid's ministries, but don't always belong or fit in. I'm talking about preteens. The goal of this book is to help kids and youth leaders learn how to engage their preteen before they checkout. A preteen is defined as a kid who is 10-12 years old. The book is broken up into two parts: Who is a preteen? and How can the church help them? It is full [...]
I was thrilled to be chosen as a contributor to a brand new book in the Kidmin Nation Library: Irresistible: How to Engage Kids and Point them to Jesus. A huge thanks to Tina Houser for working so hard to edit and put together this incredible tool for kidmin leaders. Each of the 22 chapters is written on different topics by kidmin leaders from all walks of life and experience levels. Engaging kids is one of the most important things we must do as leaders. If the kids aren't engaged and interested in what we are teaching them we are wasting our breath. This book is filled [...]
We decided to keep it simple for this set design. We created this set for an 11-week series I wrote called Scripture Files which will be available soon. In this series, kids will be encouraged to memorize the books of the Bible as they learn about a different section of the Bible each week. They will begin an investigation with Detective Clue to find out if the Bible really is the Word of God. The cost for this set design was about $50. My inspiration for this set design was detective television shows. For this series, we focused primarily on the main stage [...]
Anne Marie has done it again! I have loved both of her previous books: Walk This Way and What God is Doing. Each of her books is filled with practical and Biblical object lessons. If you are interested, check out my reviews for Walk This Way and What God is Doing. I'm excited to be a part of launching her third book: Helping Your Children Become Prayer Warriors. I was surprised to see that it is completely different from her first two books. This book is all about helping parents learn how to help their children pray. It is just as practical, Biblical, and easy to use as her other [...]
I just got back from another amazing week at the CMConnect Conference. This is my third year in a row being a part of this unique kid's ministry conference. Last year I wrote about my top 3 reasons to attend CMConnect Conference. Why do I keep going back year after year? It's not because it is the biggest conference. It's not because they put on the best "show" in their main sessions. It's not because it is held in the best vacation spot. The #1 reason I attend the CMConnect Conference every year is because of the people. Now, I don't mean [...]
God has been speaking to me about some new dreams and goals this year (cue The Greatest Showman soundtrack). As a result, these new things are shifting my life and ministry into a new chapter, and I wanted to share it with all of you. Almost two years ago, God put a new dream in my heart. I felt like I was being led towards writing my own curriculum. The funny thing is, I had just told Lauren, my assistant at the time, that I would NEVER write my own curriculum. Never say never to God! I was a little scared, overwhelmed, not [...]
We had so much fun creating this set design for an 8-week series I wrote called Star Warriors. In this series, kids will learn about a new Star Warrior from the Bible each week. Each of the Star Warriors had to trust God to help them accomplish amazing missions for him. Star Warriors include Nehemiah, Deborah, Elijah, Elisha, Jael, King Josiah, and Gideon. The cost for this set design was between $50-$100. The only items we purchased were the led strips, a small BB8 inflatable, and two death star inflatables. We borrowed several more large lawn inflatables from a member of our church [...]
