The Come Back Effect Book: Giveaway and Review


I can't tell you how excited I was to be added to the launch team for this book! It's definitely not specifically a kidmin book, but there is so much in this book that can be applied to any ministry area in the church. "The Come Back Effect" is all about how hospitality can compel your church's guests to return. I basically could have highlighted the entire book, it's that good. The book is broken up into ten chapters about ten big ideas to help you create an environment where guests will feel compelled to come back. I think my favorite thing [...]

Caught In Between Book: Giveaway and Review


I was thrilled to receive an email from Dan Scott about joining his blog tour for his new book: "Caught In Between".

The goal of this book is to help kids and youth leaders learn how to engage their preteen before they checkout. A preteen is defined as a kid who is 10-12 years old. The book is broken up into two parts: Who is a preteen? and How can the church help them? It is full [...]

Irresistible Book: Review and Giveaway


I was thrilled to be chosen as a contributor to a brand new book in the Kidmin Nation Library: Irresistible: How to Engage Kids and Point them to Jesus.  A huge thanks to Tina Houser for working so hard to edit and put together this incredible tool for kidmin leaders.

If the kids aren't engaged and interested in what we are teaching them we are wasting our breath. This book is filled [...]

Helping Your Children Become Prayer Warriors Book Review


Anne Marie has done it again! I have loved both of her previous books: Walk This Way and What God is Doing. Each of her books is filled with practical and Biblical object lessons. If you are interested, check out my reviews for Walk This Way and What God is Doing. I'm excited to be a part of launching her third book: Helping Your Children Become Prayer Warriors. I was surprised to see that it is completely different from her first two books. This book is all about helping parents learn how to help their children pray. It is just as practical, Biblical, and easy to use as her other [...]

Sustainable Children’s Ministry Book: Giveaway and Review


I was surprised and excited to receive Sustainable Children's Ministry: From Last-Minute Scrambling to Long-Term Solutions in the mail before it was released. I have spoken with Annette Safstrom a few times, but after reading her book, she has become one of my kidmin heroes. Annette is the queen of systems, plans, and procedures. Her book is full of practical ways to bring your kid's ministry to a whole new level. Her solutions aren't always quick and easy, but she gives you the tools you need to make them happen if you're willing to put in the work. I'm excited to share [...]
