Friends,

One VBS workshop is in the past with the second one this weekend.  If you missed the one at Pine Lake, there is still time to take in the workshop in Plantation at Sawgrass Adventist School.  Call or email me—or just show up!  We leave tomorrow morning to prepare.

As soon as the workshop is over, it will be camp meeting on my mind.  Camp Meeting is April 12-15 at Camp Kulaqua.  The children’s staff has been working on their programs for months.  Join us.  You will be glad you did.  We are also having seminars on Praying For Our Children by Deborah Harris.  You can check out her website at http://prayingforourchildren.org/

Coming in April and May are some great training programs for those working with kids.  It is a state grant-funded program offering Youth Educator Trainin Workshops.  The goal is for trained adults to help pre-teens and teens learn to make good choices and avoid risk behaviors.  I have registered for the one in May.  I will attach the flyers.  There is also a rally for kids and their parents.  Everything is free.  Try to get to one.  The website is www.my-choices.net  Hope to see some of you there.

I recently finished reading the latest edition of Kids’ Ministry Ideas.  It has some great articles.  I will be attaching a couple.  Made me think of the books, Not A Stick and Not a Box.  Give a child a box or a stick and it can become anything they want it to be.  A great activity for SS teachers is to pass a stick or box around a group a adults and see what the stick can be.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brtsSuJJ2Ww and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KXuBcdmktY&feature=related Try it!!

I still have some K! Magazine digital subscriptions available.  This magazine is full of ideas, information and great articles.  Gotta have it!!  If you want a digital sub, let me know.

Don’t forget that my office is full of resources.  I want to see them used.  They serve no purpose just sitting on my shelves.  Let me know if you need anything in particular.  They are not for keep, but for loan.

I must finish getting ready for the VBS workshop so I shall get this posted and the attachments added.

Until next time, God bless,

I missed all of you last week.

Friends,

I missed “talking” with you last week, but we had a great time visiting with our 2 grandsons in AL.  It had only been a little over 2 months since we had last seen them, but they grew a whole year’s worth!

I have so much to share since I missed last week.

Those of you who have requested the digital copy of K! Magazine will be getting an email with an invitation to dropbox.  I still have a few available copies to share, so if you are interested, let me know right away.

The VBS workshops are just around the corner.  Just over a week until the first one.  If you haven’t registered yet, get it in soon.

March 24, 3-8 PM at Pine Lake Retreat in Groveland

March 31, 3-8 PM at Sawgrass Adventist School in Plantation

I have LOTS of give-aways.  But you must be there to get them.  And that is the last event of the day.

If you have resources that you no longer use, please bring them to the workshop to share with someone who will love them and care for them.  Many of our Sabbath Schools are in great need of resources.

Keep Sept. 14-16 on your calendar for the fall Go Fish Children’s Ministry Leadrship Convention.  It will be at Florida Hospital Creation Conference Center in Orlando.  Great things are planned.

I will be posting an article entitled, Peel off Kids Labels, from Children’s Ministry Magazine.  It reminded me of a song that is one of my ringtones.  It is by Harry Chapin and is titled Flowers Are Red. You can find it on iTunes by several different artists.  Check it out.  It is a story in song.

Campmeeting is coming!!  We have some great children’s programs planned.  You don’t want to miss it.  You can find the schedule here: http://media.floridaconference.com/PDF/campmeeting/cm12poster.pdf  Hope to see you there.

I will again post the info from Biblical Parenting about the 2 upcoming Florida events.  Both next week.  If you can go, please do.  You won’t be sorry.

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!

Everyday Parents CAN Raise Extraordinary Kids
Presented by Dr Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN
Saturday, March 24
8:45 am to 12:00 noon

Now to get this posted at http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/news-2/  and add the attachments.

Until next time, God bless,

A quick note

So you know I haven’t forgotten you.

Friends,

The days just slipped by and I suddenly realized it was already Friday and I hadn’t sent my weekly greeting.

I have been getting ready for the VBS workshops.  If you haven’t registered yet, get those registrations in as I need to give a meal count.  The flyer is attached.

My Mom has been visiting the last couple weeks.  She goes home early Sunday morning.  She must feel like a ping pong ball, bouncing back and forth between my brother and me.  I have kept her busy when she has been with me.  I hope I have as much energy as she does when I am her age.

I have started a list of churches wanting to borrow the VBS props.  You know this is a first come first served list.  If you are interested, let me know.  You would be responsible to pick them up from me or another church and return them to me or arrange with another church to get them from you.  Let me know if you wish to borrow them and when your VBS is.

At the VBS workshops, we will be offering you the opportunity to share resources that you no longer use or that you have duplicates of.  Please bring them to the workshop so other churches can benefit.  I found several duplicates in my library and plan to share them.  See you there!

Don’t forget the Biblical Parenting presentations coming to Florida.  Here is the info.  If I was not already committed elsewhere, I would go.

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