I've been writing this week about integrity and Children's Ministry and looked at if we are people who do what we say we will do, who do not gossip and who give credit to those who have ideas and do things.  I said; "It truly matters if we are people who show the…

Why Integrity Matters in Children's Ministry - Give Credit Where it is Due

http://www.aboutthechildrensdepartment.com/2016/12/why-integrity-matters-in-childrens_30.html

I've been writing about integrity and Children's Ministry and have looked at if we are people who do what we say we will do and who do not gossip. You know, it truly matters if we are people who show the highest integrity if we are Christians; it matters even more when we are people who…

resources for families - God Made You Nose to Toes

This time of year we tend to make, "New Year's Resolutions", so today I'd like to suggest a "resolution" for you . . . encourage your grandchildren to read.

VBS . . . or Not???!!!
