Here’s what we’ve found helpful online this week:

Greg Baird had a post on books Children’s Ministry leaders should read. He states the reason for pulling this list together this way, “Statistics show that reading by leaders is in decline.” Leaders need to be growing and one of the easiest ways to do this is to read.

Tim Elmore had a helpful post for parents listing dangerous apps kids might be using. He says, “Parenting a teen has never been an easy feat, but in today’s digital age, tracking a teen’s behavior has become almost impossible. With an increase of social media apps and the option of anonymity, teens are communicating in a digital world that has no boundaries…leaving parents with no idea on how to monitor their teen’s smart phone activity.” Parents this can be a very helpful post to start this important discussion.

Kristen Wetherell had a post on the connection to parenting and tiredness. She wrote, “Parents, your tiredness may be an unwanted trial, but it’s also an opportunity to trust God.” It doesn't matter how your kids are there will always be seasons of sleeplessness. We could all use the advice given here.
