Last year, we decided to try something new and created a Christmas Family Night. We wanted to create an event that encouraged families to come together, have fun, and meet other families in our church and community. It was a great success, so we decided to bring it back again this year with a new theme and several additions/improvements. We require families to pay and register for this event online. This helps a ton with planning. If you don’t know who's coming, you'll end up either over-buying or under-buying, and neither of those is a good thing. We charged our families a [...]

Last year, I was honored to be chosen to help launch and review Anne Marie’s book: Walk This Way: Ethics and Sanctification Lessons for Kids. It was refreshing to read a ministry book that is practical, easy to use, and a lot of fun to read. You can read my full review of Walk This Way here. Her next book, What God is Doing is full of Biblical lessons all pointing to our need for a Savior and how God brought about His plan for the salvation of the world. I am excited to be a part of launching What God is [...]
I created this set design for a 5-week series I wrote called Lights, Camera, Action! In this series, kids will watch movie clips from movies each week and will learn how to pull Biblical truths out of any movie and apply them to their lives. Topics covered in the series will include: jealousy, integrity, friendship, persistence, and encouragement. Family take-home cards will include an additional family movie discussion to go along with the movie of the week. The cost for this set design was easily less than $50. Most of the decorations for this set design were homemade, so you don't need to [...]
The last few days have been full of listening, learning, and laughing at the D6 Conference. Now, it's time to pack up our bags and go home. We may be leaving the conference (for this year), but we should not leave the lessons we've learned behind. I wish I could share with each and every one of you all that I have experienced and taken in during the conference, but that is not humanly possible. Instead, I'm excited to share with you some of my favorite quotes and takeaways from the inspiring leaders who have spoken into our lives this week. [...]
Thursday at the D6 Conference was all about the general sessions. We had the privilege of hearing from many influential voices in ministry over the course of four general sessions. Can you say ministry idea overload? It has been an amazing, idea-filled day to say the least. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite moments and teachings from today. I was challenged, convicted, and encouraged by the speakers today, and I hope you will be too.

Christina Embree is wife to Pastor Luke, mom to three great kids, and an experienced family minister. She is passionate about seeing churches partner with families to encourage faith formation at home and equipping parents to disciple their kids in the faith. I have been to several of Christina's breakouts at past conferences, and I always love hearing her heart for bringing discipleship into the home. I always leave even more challenged to partner with the families in my ministry. You can check out my notes from my favorite breakout of hers here. "When Family Ministry Doesn't Work" Notes: "So you [...]
