More of My Resources to Help & Equip

I have been writing this blog for eleven years. Over these many years About the Children's Department has consistently ended up as a "Top Children's Ministry Blog" - currently we are once again listed as the number two, most read blog by FeedSpot. This means a fair number of people who are involved in Children's Ministry read what I write.

Over the years I have written about how it is essential for churches to step up and engage, equip, and encourage parents and grandparents so they are able to effectively hand down confident faith to the children they love. Even if these children are at church every time the doors are open, they will only be there three to five hours a week - since there are 168 hours in a week, three to five are not many hours. And, since we know many children are only at church every other week, or only attend the mid-week service, we know they are at church for even fewer hours.

This does not mean we are not able to effectively impact their lives, but it is more challenging. If we equip, encourage, and empower parents and grandparents so they are handing down confident faith at home, we will find by teaming up with them we are able to impact the lives of the children we all love in a more impactful way.

If you read my blog, you have been able to get short "snippets" of what I believe about Children's Ministry and equipping parents/grandparents so together you are able to hand down confident faith. So, if you would like to be able to read more about what I believe when it comes to these things, then I recommend checking out my Author Page on Amazon where you will find all the books I have written - some to teach and some for parents/grandparents/churches to use with the children they love. You will find it at this link - and please, if you read/buy/use any of these resources, please take a minute to write a review - even just a couple sentences. Thank you!


  1. I applaud your ministry, Lynda, and am doing my best to spread the word. Summer shade means "Hammock Read Time" with my grandkids. Your books are perfect! My plan is to collect ALL of them! Thank you for all you do.
