What’s another word for story?

Parables

Friends,

Why the story question?  I am doing Week of Prayer at Beryl Wisdom School for the younger grades.  And we are learning about parables.  Meeting Jesus through the stories He told.

My Mom is visiting from New Hampshire.  She is splitting her time between me and my brother, Doug.  And her 75th High School Reunion.  They have it in Florida every year even though the school is in Derry, NH.

VBS Workshops will be here really soon.  Get your registrations in as I need to have the meal count.  My office is filling up with VBS materials.

Again I am posting the info from Biblical Parenting.  Hope some of you can go.

Biblical Parenting will be coming to Florida in the next few weeks.  Here is the info.

Showing honor… Helping at home… Taking initiative… Following instructions… Being responsible… Showing self-control… Developing contentment…

What do these things have in common?

The National Center for Biblical Parenting is coming to teach their biblical parenting seminars.

The material taught is practical and demonstrates what a heart-based approach to parenting actually looks like on a day-to-day basis. No matter how old your child is, you want to take time to attend at least one of these events.

A heart-based approach goes deeper than just behavior, or reward and punishment. This approach changes what children believe, and that changes kids from the inside out.

We’re excited to be able to offer these two different events in your area.

And here’s a Special Deal: Once you register for one of these events, you can save $10 off attending the other. Call (800) 771-8334 today.

Here are the dates and times. Register today!

Friends,

I have moved and am settled.  It is so good to have a home and to have space for a work table.  I posted pics last night on my Facebook page.   I am also going to post them on the department Febook page.  Come and visit me sometime.

This last weekend I was at Cohutta Springs, in Georgia.  I attended the G.L.U.E. Conference on Special Needs.  A great conference.  I am working on getting it here in Sept. at our Go Fish Leadership convention.  It is such a vital ministry.  This conference will help you to see that you CAN minister to our special children without fear.

As I was unpacking the lending library, I noted that several  items that have been loaned out are way overdue.  If you have some of them, could you please return them so others may use them.  I have also added items to the library and will be updating the online list soon.

I visited a small church recently where they had scheduled an event for kids and families for this coming weekend.  I thought it was such a good idea, I thought I would share the idea with you.  Goecaching for kids.  A great Sabbath afternoon event for families.

Biblical Parenting will be coming to Florida in the next few weeks.  Here is the info.

8.5%

That is how much of this year has already passed!

Friends,

Hope all of you are enjoying 2012.  It has already begun slipping away.

The VBS workshops will be here soon.  Get your registrations in.  I have attached the flyer and the poster.  The supplies have started arriving.  I am still working on support staff.  If you are interested in helping in either location, let me know.

Last night my husband and 0I attended a screening of the film October Baby.  It is a powerful, gripping film about the abortion survivor issue and also covers the adoption issues related to this.  You can get more info at http://octoberbabymovie.net/  It is so important today when abortion is the norm.  Check it out.  Also go to http://hearthesilentcry.org/   The film has already had an impact and hasn’t been released yet.  Go to http://octoberbabymovie.net/ministryresources/ and watch Shari’s story.

I have some 12 in 12 books left.  Let me know if you want some.  I will bring some with me each Sabbath and to the VBS workshops.  Many churches have already gotten them.

Kids in Discipleship is having a training in Collegedale on Feb.   Here is their announcement.

February 24-26Learn how to be a disciple of Christ, and be a disciple maker!

You are invited to Collegedale, TN, to experience a powerful weekend of training in how to use the new DVD “Kids In Discipleship-Church Edition” in your local church. This training is designed so that individual lay leaders can be trained in how to use the DVD, and then return to launch this ministry at their local church. This is a tuition-free training. There is a $15 fee per person for training materials. Registration deadline is February 22.

Space is limited, so register today!

To register, and for more information, please visit www.indiscipleship.org.

The Education Department is also having KID training Feb. 1-20 in Plantation.  This is for Early Childhood.  If you are interested in attending, contact the Education Department at the conference office.  I had planned to attend, but my mother is coming into be in town on the 19th.  The first time in 5 years.  I am so looking forward to her coming.  And I plan to put her to work here at the office!

It looks like I will be moving back downstairs next week!!!  Nothing against the upstairs, but it is so far from my storeroom.  I plan for Mom to organize my library.  It will finally get unpacked!

If you haven’t already heard the big news coming out of the conference administration, go to http://www.floridaconference.com/steppingstone/

And even if you have, get the official announcement.

The other day someone gave me a “fund raising” bank.  I have attached the flyer.  I am saving my dimes to go toward Go Fish For Kids.  Of course, I will have to fill it many times for it to make an impact, but every little bit helps.

You may not hear from me next week as I hope to be busy moving and settling into my new space.

I must post this and add the attachments,

Until next time, God bless
