In this season of my life, I am not able to be around here as much as I used to be, but I do check in. Please feel free to leave a comment on anything you find of interest or drop me a note here. Approvals and replies may be slow in coming; I appreciate your patience and understanding.

You can use the menu links at the top of the page, as well as category links at the bottom of each blog post to find an abundance of encouragement, guidance, and materials for your children's ministry.

May God bless you and your ministry. Hasten Home!
