6 Reasons You Aren't As Creative As You Want To Be

I hear it all the time from so many Kids Ministry leaders.  It’s the six words that should NEVER come out of your mouth…“I’m just not a creative person.”Sometimes it comes in more subtle ways such as, “How do you guys at High Voltage Kids Ministry do what you do?”“I could never do that!”  “I wish I could be more creative, but I don’t have it in me.”…See More

What To Do When A Child Is Caught Viewing Pornography

Posted on October 17, 2013 at 12:48pm 0 Comments

I received a tough email from a ministry friend this week.  It said, “I found out Sunday night that an 11 year old girl from my children’s church is addicted to porn. I am totally shocked because she seemed so quiet and shy, I would like to know how to approach her and minister to her.”

Unfortunately, this is a situation that happens more often than we would like to admit.  With the literal explosion of technology (including hand-held mobile devices) in the…

"Raising The Bar: Expecting MORE From Your Team"

Posted on October 10, 2013 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

“I can’t get my team to come to meetings, so I just don’t schedule them.”   ”I wish my team were more committed.”  ”I want to raise the level of my team, but I am afraid of losing good people.”

I hear statements like these from Kidmin Leaders all the time.  They want to take their team to the next level of commitment so they can accomplish more for the Kingdom, but they…

"Are Church Fall Festivals Actually Counter-Productive?"

Posted on October 8, 2013 at 10:33am 0 Comments

Last year I wrote a post that caused a lot of discussion.  I thought I would revisit the subject since this blog has grown by over 1,000 readers since then, and many of you were not able to be a part of the discussion.

For my first twenty years in Children’s Ministry, I planned and hosted a “Fall Festival” (a.k.a. “Harvest Party”, “Hallelujah Night”, “Fall Fest”, “Family Fun Fest”, “Trunk or Treat”, etc.) at the church where I was serving.  These events generally were seen as a fun…

Ashton Kutcher Has A Message For Your Kids

Posted on August 20, 2013 at 8:32am 0 Comments

Hollywood is known for sending the WRONG messages to our kids.  They promote a false sense of success, what it takes to get there, and what the definition of “sexy” is.  I was completely surprised when I saw this speech given by Ashton Kutcher at the Teen Choice Awards 2013.

Now, let me first say this - I am in NO WAY endorsing Ashton Kutcher, his lifestyle, or his ability…

Hi, Brian!


"Mary Rice Hopkins & Puppets with A Heart" is a NEW Christian children's program which employs the use of live action, master puppetry, and song to create a weekly episodic program which equally entertains and teaches valuable life-choices to its young audience. 

You can tune in Saturdays on TBN or view online.  This show deals with tough issues kids are facing today and will change children's hearts for a lifetime.  Program schedule on Saturdays:  8:30 a.m. (PST), 9:30 a.m. (MT), 10:30 a.m. (CT), and 11:30 a.m. (EST).
