I hope this finds you well and warm. It is cold here in Florida. 50 degrees is cold for here! I know many of you are dealing with snow. Come visit us.

The VBS workshop at Pine lake last week was great. We had an enthusiastic group. Now we get to do it all over again in South Florida. I leave tomorrow. More fun, freebies, and friends! I have posted the pictures on the Ministry Facebook page and also on my FB page. Check them out. I will be posting more next week from the upcoming workshop.

Campmeeting is coming up soon. Bring your kids. We have great programs planned for them. Check it out.

Do you work with preteens? Preteen Ministry has some great resources. Go to their site and sign up (free membership) and you can get 2 free resources.

Are you a member of CMConnect? It is a free resource site for those in Children’s Ministry. Once you join, be sure to friend me. Under discuss click discussions then free resources. There is some great material there. Don’t miss out on this valuable source of information.

Now I must close, post and add attachments. Then I can spend time downloading some more free resources from CMConnect.

Until next time, God bless.

Today we load the van and tomorrow we go to Pine Lake to get ready for the VBS workshop.  If you haven’t registered yet, it is NEVER too late-that is until after the workshop.  You don’t want to miss this.  It will be fun, informative and nobody goes away empty-handed.  We will be at Sawgrass school on the 30th for our VBS workshop there.

I discovered a neat website.  Don’t remember how I found it.  You might want to check it out.  There are good resources for church ministries.  There are several good resources for Children’s Ministry that are free.

I got all the free ones.  You can get them to.  It is free to sign up.

Campmeeting will be here in 3 weeks.  I hope to see you thee.  We have great children’s programs planned.

OK.  One hour later and we are not loading the van this morning.  Postponed for 24 hours.  It is pouring wet and I can’t risk things getting wet.  Glad I plan to load a day before I really have to.  It is not supposed to rain tomorrow.

I had a delightful time at Plantation church on Sabbath.  The Sawgrass School had their Ester program.  They sang and performed for both services and were Fantastic!!  Such a blessing to everyone there.  I had a Sabbath School workshop in the afternoon.  They have dedicated children’s staff.

Here is the link to a YouTube video by Phil Vischer about the meaning of Easter.

Now to send this out, get it posted at and add the attachments.

Until next time, God bless,

No, I didn’t forget you last week.  I came home from my trip to CA with a killer cold.  It totally depleted my energy and left me with a scary cough.  In order to keep my germs and cough to myself, I spend the week at home.

The Vacation Bible School workshops are almost here!  My office is cluttered with everything I need for you to enjoy the workshops.  Just watch your steps as you enter here!

I hope to see you there.  It is going to be a fun and educational day. And don’t forget about all the free giveaways!  Come and find out why I am bringing a funnel, matches, slinky, and a car wash sponge.  I promise I will not ask you to wash my car.

Camp Meeting is getting close.  Communications has put together a great promo for the children’s programs.  Watch for it on the Florida Conference website.  Once it is posted, I will let you know.
