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 [...]

So far Corinne Noble has created 122 blog entries.
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 [...]
I absolutely loved creating this set design back in the fall for an 8-week series I wrote called Discovery. In this series, kids will learn how the Old and New Testaments are connected and support each other each week. They will be encouraged to dig deeper into God's Word! During small groups, kids will go on a Footnotes Treasure Hunt where they will learn how to use footnotes and that many verses in the New Testament quoted verses from the Old Testament. The cost for this set design was easily less than $50. Most of the decorations for this set design [...]
I am a huge foodie! I LOVE TO EAT! In fact, I'm reasonably certain that they missed a sixth love language: Food. Food is my love language! I love to be fed and to feed others. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one out there. I have found that volunteers tend to show up more often and are definitely motivated by food. I am a strong believer that there should be good food at all meetings, parties, events, services, small groups, or any other time you get people together. With that being said, here are some different ways I use [...]
Last year I decided to incorporate making slime into our Good Friday and Easter Sunday services. The kids were so into making slime at the time that I knew it would hold their attention while teaching them a story many of them had heard a few times. I am shocked that kids are still so into making slime this year. I thought I would share what we did last year in our services for anyone looking for a fresh way to share the Easter story with their kids. Good Friday Message (Black and Red Slime) When God created humans they [...]
