Surf's Up! Children's Ministry Resources Around the Web . . . STRAIGHT4ward with Loretta Baughan!
Okay, first of all, STRAIGHT4ward with Loretta Baughan isn't "technically" a children's ministry blog and secondly my sister is Loretta Baughan, but this is absolutely a blog well worth adding to your list of must-read blogs! Loretta writes this blog because, "Life is full of twists and turns, triumphs and pitfalls, ups and downs. This blog and the coming podcasts will attempt to tackle issues confronting modern-day families, from the perspective of a Christian conservative, straight-talking mom."
Loretta posted October 10th about how all children are precious in Jesus' sight and this post, and the corresponding podcast, is one well worth the 30 minutes it will take to listen as Loretta shares about exceptionally challenged children, genetic research, abortion, how we are all created with a purpose and a parent's love. If we are going to be effective in children's ministry and be able to serve and engage all children and families, what Loretta has to say is of utmost importance.
Loretta's blog will be highly informative, eye-opening and will help you have a heart for some of God's most special people . . . and will challenge you to do all you can to be inclusive in your children's ministry for exceptionally challenged children and their families! Thank you Loretta for this blog, it will help us all have better understanding and be better informed!
