Book Review - Old Story New - I'm Giving Some Away!

Part of what you do in children's ministry is provide resources for parents . . . which can certainly be a challenge. Identifying resources they can use at home - challenge! Identifying resources they will use at home . . . bigger challenge! The resources have to be doable if families will use them and they have to be engaging for families to use them. So . . . if you have been looking for doable and engaging resources, take a look at Old Story New!
