A New Beginning, A New Direction?

The year has been an interesting year for me. It would be great if when the clock struck midnight and the new year began, that all those things from this year would be over and forgotten and a new fresh start would begin with the new year. We all know that isn’t true. The things happening in December will continue into January.

How Do You Evaluate Your Curriculum?

I would love to hear how other #kidmin leaders evaluate the curriculum that you use. How do you determine whether or not it is "working"? Does anyone have a formal evaluation document / process?

Cookies please? A note about recent updates to CMConnect...

Hi everyone, 

When we uploaded the new changes to CMConnect it created an alternate online universe. Something to do with a worm-hole and flux-capacitor, I think. This anomaly has made it difficult for many to log into their CMConnect account.

 

First off, please accept my apologies for this confusion. Here's a picture of a cookie to make it better...

Now, if you are having…

My Reading List for 2012: 52 Weeks, 52 Books

I decided this year that I had slacked off on my reading. So, this coming year I’m planning on making up for it.  In addition to reading through the Bible once or twice this year (I haven’t decided yet), my plan is tackle at least one book per week for a total of 52 books this year.  The books reflect my interests, and I’ve tried to pick a variety of books.  My main criteria was that I already owned all of the books (except for one which I couldn’t resist adding to the list).  I figured I…
