illustrate my own Known Bible Hero - Hadassah - It is On Sale and is a Fun Way to Engage Children This Summer!

Please share this post with the parents and grandparents in your ministry.

I have a few more books which are great for children and families to enjoy together - and make a fun way to engage the children you love in learning more about God - especially over the summer! Hadassah is one of the titles in the illustrate my own series. All of the books in the series are fun books which will uniquely engage the children you love in ways they have never engaged before with the accounts of Bible heroes. As they (and you) illustrate their books, they will think about what is happening, the things the Bible people said, and how God showed His love and grace to the Bible people . . . which will help the children you love better understand how God shows His love and grace to them as well!

Learn, Be Prepared, Hand Down Confident Faith with the little answer book

There are grandparents/ parents in your ministry who have people they love who have turned from the faith they once had, so it is essential for you to recommend resources to them which will equip them with the answers to the question - why should I believe? I discovered there are solid answers to this question and compiled them into a simple book - the little answer book.

Anchored - Teaming Up Church & Parents/Grandparents to Teach the "Whys"


You may or may not know about the Barna studies which show how so many of our children and grandchildren are turning away from their faith and to atheism. This is not something we have to just sit back and accept. We are able to do something about it. We are able to hand down confident faith and doing this involves teaching the children we love both the "whats" - what the Bible says and therefore what we believe - and teaching them the "whys" - why we are able to believe what we believe.

What Will You Do to Make a Difference So We Stop Losing the Next Generation?

For several years I have been writing about Barna's studies which show Gen Z is turning away from their faith to atheism at double the rate of previous generations. Today, I want to share a study from Pew which shows the same thing and says the Christian majority in the US will drop below 50% by 2070 - just over forty years in the future - you will find the article at this link.

So How Can You Tell if Your Church Has a Vision, Passion and Plan For Your Children's Ministry . . . or Not?

We all would like to think, and believe, the leaders in our churches understand how vital Children's Ministry is to the overall health of the church; but sadly in far too many churches this is not the case. You can clearly see this when churches add music staff while their Children's Ministries flounder without vision, passion, and a plan. Don't get me wrong; I believe music ministry can be a very effective way for people to use the gifts God has given them and certainly has a role to fill in leading people in praising God, but when 43% of people get saved before the age of 13 and less than 23% get saved after the age of 21 it is obvious how much it matters if our Children's Ministries are one of the primary focuses of the church.
