Craig's topic at Orange Conference in Atlanta next week.

How to Balance Leadership & Life-Part 1 and 2.
You don't "go" into hectic, you "grow" into it. Achieving balance is something that most of us do for a season or a summer. Perhaps take a vacation or a weeken...d off. Maybe read a book or do a study on burnout or even memorize a few verses that will reassure us that we're simply in a "busy" season and not in a "way of life." Unfortunately, these ideas don't work. The reality is that we need to understand our own personality, the personality of the environment we're working in, and what we're willing to sacrifice to move from hectic to healthy. It is recommended that participants in this workshop also attend Part 2 during preconference workshop 3.

It's been a while since anyone has asked, here I much longer till new curriculum comes out? We also love your curriculum, and took a break to do a series the whole church was doing, but it was not very desirable, ecspecially for the preschoolers I had to do tons of additions and changes, and no coloring pages-these help so much when there is extra time, ugh! Hope to hear from you soon.

We're wrapping up "Christmas, it's a wrap" this week! Everything is going great EXCEPT that I really wish there was the review material like the other EK series we've used. We did Wake Up and it didn't have review either :( The review has been one of the best sessions in each series since it allowed us to have a fun session and encourage the kids to remember each lesson longer than just the next week! I did create my own reviews using the powerpoint templates, but had no video material to support the session.

We just finished "Wake Up" and the kids loved it. We're starting "Pair O' Bulls" tomorrow and plan to use "It's A Wrap" this Christmas!

I just noticed in your e-mail that your next planned series are all either 3,4, or 5 weeks. Are you moving away from 8 week series? Also, will the shorter series be reduced in price?

Thanks Craig! Looking forward to the new series! You guys are awesome and are the only video based curriculum I've found that has the preschool kids and elementary kids studying the same lesson/main point. That is huge for us!

Hi There,

I am a huge Empowering Kids Fan. We have done all of your elementary and preschool video series at our church. Since we've used all of your material with our kids, we took a break to wait for new series to come out. It has been very difficult! We are so used to the the great material you guys put out. We've done three Elevate series, but I'm ready to jump ship. Way too laborious to get in our teacher's hands. Ten good ideas for every one you might use and all teacher guides in a printed format that cannot be manipulated. Only re-typed! Yikes. Anyway, can you feel my pain yet??? I am wondering what your production/release schedule looks like for 2010. We've got to get Empwering Kids material going here again. Our kids are in withdrawl!!! Do you hear the little voices saying "we need more Sharky!"?
