2018-04-16T19:33:38+00:00

I was surprised and excited to receive Sustainable Children's Ministry: From Last-Minute Scrambling to Long-Term Solutions in the mail before it was released. I have spoken with Annette Safstrom a few times, but after reading her book, she has become one of my kidmin heroes. Annette is the queen of systems, plans, and procedures. Her book is full of practical ways to bring your kid's ministry to a whole new level. Her solutions aren't always quick and easy, but she gives you the tools you need to make them happen if you're willing to put in the work. I'm excited to share [...]

What God is Doing: Old Testament Object Lessons for Kids Book Review

2018-04-20T21:00:16+00:00

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 [...]

Walk This Way: Giveaway and Book Review

2018-04-22T21:28:35+00:00

When I was asked to review Walk This Way: Ethics and Sanctification Lessons for Kids, I was excited because it's not your typical ministry book. It's extremely practical, easy to use, and a lot of fun to read. In the introduction, Anne Marie says, "This curriculum will help you: teach engaging Bible lessons kids can't resist, create a fun teaching atmosphere that sparks the imagination of children, teach children Biblical truth that enhances their spiritual growth, and share the gospel and expand the Kingdom." I believe this book can do all that and more. Here are some of the biggest positives: Versatility [...]

The Red Book: Giveaway and Book Review

2018-04-29T22:36:07+00:00

I had the privilege of reading Mark Harper's The Red Book before it was released, and I'm excited to share my thoughts and takeaways with you. There are forty-five chapters in this book which would normally sound like a really long read, but that's not the case. Each chapter is only 3-6 pages long, and Mark Harper focuses on one important subject in each chapter. He gives practical advice on timeless issues we deal with in ministry on a regular basis. I won't list all 45 topics, but some of my favorites include:  Chapter 1: "Begin with the End in Mind" [...]

Talk Now and Later Book Review

2018-03-31T16:16:58+00:00

I had the privilege of reading Brian Dollar's latest book Talk Now and Later before it even hit the shelves. I am excited to share my thoughts and takeaways from reading it for the first time (because I will definitely be re-visiting this book many times in the future). Talk Now and Later is a must-read for anyone parenting or ministering to children. Brian Dollar tackles ten of the most common, difficult subjects that parents need to discuss with their children and teens. Each chapter is devoted to one topic and he breaks down the topics to help parents have the necessary conversations with their kids from a practical [...]
