I am back in the office.  We had a great vacation.  Got to spend time in God’s creation with our kids and grandkids.  Except the ones in CA.  We will be going there later this year.

I still have a lot of catching up to do.  There will be several attachments to the posted email.  You will find them here:

Background checks are coming in, but there are a LOT more that need to be done.  I have attached the sign-up info.  Please get these done soon.  And pass the word on to others.  It is vital that this gets done soon.  There is a final compliance date of Oct. 1.

Vacation time is almost here.  My husband and I leave next Wed. for the Smokey Mountain area.  We get to spend time with the kids and grandkids.  We are really looking forward to our time with them.  I will still be checking my email but will try to forget work for a couple weeks.

We are in the middle of VBS season.  I am hearing good reports.  Now I need paper reports.  NAD Children’s Ministry is looking forward to our reports.

Background check results are coming in!  I am so pleased with those who have done theirs and waiting to get more.  You can find the info on the training and background check process at

You will also find the Children’s Sabbath materials for this year on the same page.  The theme for this year is Super Sleuths.  Check it out.  I will also post it with the email on the website at

Our daughter homeschools their three children.  I am in awe of what she does for her kids.  She is so creative.  She just posted a video yearbook of this last school year.  You can find it on You Tube at  Enjoy.

CM Connect has video training each month.  This month it is on Special Needs Ministry.  I have saved the email as a pdf and will post it.  The title is Special Needs Ministry.  It includes links to  the videos.

If you like to read or want your children to enjoy reading, I found a website where you can download free books for kindle.  Click on get started and look under the genre you are interested in. You can get free Kindle on your computer, phone or tablet from

Enjoy your July 4 holiday.  And don’t forget the reason for the holiday.  I will return at the end of the month.
