¡Hola! Read My Article in entre niños (in English)

For years I was asked where folks could get help for ministries to Spanish speaking ministries. While my Kidology Handbook is available for FREE on Kidology.org, I’ve always wished we could do more. I am delighted to be a part of a Spanish magazine called entre niños. It is loaded with wonderful content in both English and Spanish. Best of all, the magazine is FREE. Below you can learn how to access the free magazines, but let me share with you the article I had in the most recent issue. Enjoy: (Click to Read Full Size in a new window) There is a great content in this magazine for both Spanish and English readers! Please help spread the word! Since the website can be a little tricky for English speakers, here is how to download the magazine if you can’t read Spanish: Go to their website at www.entreninos.com and click on the green box about halfway down the left side of the page that says: Entre Niños Free Magazine in digital format! Access all issues! That will take you to a page where they can see the Table of Contents for the latest edition. Click on the red box at…

Don’t Be the Kidmin Who Misses This!!

There is an amazing new animated movie coming March 2018 that will only be in theaters ONE WEEKEND! I got to enjoy a an early screening with my family and it is amazing! Imagine Frozen, Lord of the Rings and Narnia blended into a wonderful children’s story that is a beautiful parable of the importance of not forgetting ancient Truth. It has adventure, catchy music and a powerful message for all ages. A fallen angel is trapped in the form of a dragon, known as the Ice Dragon, banished as long as the people remember the Song their Creator gave them. But as time goes by, Truth fades into legend with only a few believers left – and the dragon breaks free! How will the villagers defeat the mighty dragon? You’ll have to find out for yourself! From the creator of God Rocks comes this delightful story that was written by the creator, Bruce Stacey, decades ago for his own children and has now been brought to life in a spectacular animated film. As children’s ministry leaders – we need to both celebrate and support creative efforts like this to engage our culture and share the Good News! Instead of…

Fun to make another blog list – and I feel lucky since I’ve kinda been slackin’ off on my blog this past year. This listing even points out (rather blatantly) that I have averaged two posts per month. Time to step it up again! Though, my blog is really just a side outlet for writing, most of the content I create goes on Kidology.org – but after my Blog Challenge, I should get some more content ideas for this New Year. Thanks for reading and providing me an opportunity to serve YOU through this blog. Be sure to check out the others on the list, there are some great friends on that list, as well as some new ones I need to check out! Here’s to a new year of Equipping and Encouraging Those Who Minister to Children!

How Do You Talk to Your kids About Tragedy? By Ron Brooks

Thank you, Ron Brooks, for permission to re-post this helpful article on my blog. How to Talk to Kids About Tragedy. By Ron Brooks The largest massacre in US history in Las Vegas. The shooting at Columbine. The devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Irma and Harvey. The Tornadoes of Moore, Oklahoma. The school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.  The terrorist attack on 911. The terrorist attack in Paris, France. The mass shooting in Orlando.  All terrible tragedies, and if your child has heard about these events, you may be wondering how to talk to your kids about tragedy. With social media such a huge part of our life now, events like this are widely publicized. You are hardly able to turn on the TV or read through a Facebook feed without seeing reports. Many of our kids will see photos or hear about all the people that lost their homes or their lives in the storm. While we may do our best to shield our kids from horrible events, the truth is, many will find out. We homeschool our daughter, so it may be easier for me to keep bad news like this from her, but for others it is…

Sending Kids on a MISSION!

Kids come to church, listen, learn and then go home. But how do we impact how they live? It is so important to give children practical things they can do to live out what they are learning at church. Your curriculum likely calls that the “Application.” But just telling kids an application, doesn’t mean they’ll remember to do it! So how do you break into the routine and busyness of their week? Just like your lesson, you need to make the application fun. As we teach kids to share, give and be generous, we need to also provide them a way to DO it. How? Send them on a Mission! Our church is currently collecting school supplies for teaches and students at an inner city elementary school our church has partnered with. That is their mission. My mission is to make collecting these supplies fun. So last week, my son and I went to Walmart to demonstrate the Mission we want to send our kids on. Here is the video we made to get our kids excited about collecting these supplies. Making your own promo video is easy. I needed only an iPhone, a little bit of planning, and less…
