My Plans vs God’s Plans

A super cool Magic Trick / Object Lesson that illustrates why sometimes God says no to our plans. He has a bigger plan! THE EFFECT: You show a piece of paper that says MY PLAN on it and describe how sometimes you go to God with YOUR PLAN and God rejects it! You then RIP UP THE PAPER in front of the kids. But as you talk about how sometimes God rejects our plan because He has a bigger better plan, you slowly unfold the ripped up paper to reveal a completely restored LARGER paper with no tears any more that says GOD’S PLAN! It is the classic Torn and Restored Paper illusion with a new application! PRESENTATION VIDEO: Watch the explanation video and download templates to do the illusion at: Kidology.org/myplangodsplan

NEW Outpost Set!

Finally got to update my Kids Church set! I’ve been using a blackboard wall and some curtains for two years while I saved up to be able to finally build what I wanted. We call our kids church The Outpost because I want the kids to know that church isn’t the destination in our faith, it is only where we get trained and equipped, the Adventure is out there in the world during the week. We’re in Colorado, so we love the outdoors and the mountains, so our entire ministry is themed that way, Basecamp for Nursery, Scramblers for 2-3’s, Explorers for 4-5’s among others. But back to The Outpost! Here is a time lapse of the first day:     Then it was time to get to finish it! We had only two days to completely build it to kick off on Sunday! Some of our goals were: TV Monitors so no more turning out the lights every time we needed to show something on the screen via projector. A stage door for actors to come and go. A puppet window for puppet guests. Places for fun props out of reach of curious fingers. A cool entrance – the…

Making Your Communication Personal and FUN with Bitmoji!

To capture people’s attention today, your messages need to stand out! Let’s face it, e-mail and text communication is a daily part of every leader’s day. But the people we are communicating with are inundated with messages from all areas of their lives. How do you make yours stand out? How can you bring a smile to people’s faces? I use a FREE app called Bitmoji, specifically, the iOS keyboard. You can search by key word of just scroll through LOTS of options then copy/paste or download to your device. Getting Started is easy (and free) 1) You download the app and set up an account. 2) You go through the steps of creating your character! 3) You can change outfits as often as you want! 4) You look for the ones you want to use and then HAVE FUN! Since it is a phone app, I search on my phone, and when you select one, it copies to your clipboard. I will then text it to myself and on my computer, download it from Messages to my desktop, and then I file them all in a folder. If the app ever goes away, I’ve got hundreds to use for…

My Blog Challenge to YOU!

What you’re reading? OK, I did warn you. But welcome! So, I’ve been behind on blogging – and I feel just terrible about it. But unlike most bloggers where their blog is their primary platform for content, mine is Kidology.org – that where I have posted recently, from my complete Nerf War Plan to my own version of You’d Better Watch Out (Jesus is Coming to Town)! So, as the New Year approaches, I am presented with, “What shall I write on my blog?” My Facebook Page has replaced personal updates and the Kidology Facebook Group is where I interact the most with our wonderful kidmin community. I could share my Drone Pics and Videos, but that doesn’t really fit the name of this blog. (I did just start a FB Group for those who want to follow those adventures) I know that blogging is primary a writing platform, so I thought, what shall I write ABOUT. I’m currently already writing a book (more on that in the new year) but WHAT to write about on my blog? As a talker, trainer, writer – human with opinions – name any topic and I’ve got something to say. But it is…
