Here is our weekly list of things we've been reading online lately:

LifeWay Kids had a great post on lessons in leadership. It reads, "Begin praying for a vision for what God wants to do in and through you. Gather people together and allow them to dream with you." Leaders, this is the kind of list that is easy to read and challenging to put into practice; but it worth the effort.

The Verge Network had a post on the importance of re-delcaring vision. In it, the author says, "Leaders often fail to remind because they 'don't want to say the same things." They feel then need to bring something fresh, something new. This is a mistake. We all need reminding." This is another great reminder for leaders.

Dale Hudson wrote a post on Children's ministry influence over a lifetime. It this post he writes, "The fruit you see now is just the beginning. When you influence a child...you influence them for a lifetime." This is a great encouragement for teachers and helpers who serve in your ministries.

KidzMatter had a post how much a volunteer's time is worth. It reads, "The study suggests that a volunteer's time is worth $20.85 per hour ... When I really thought about it though, I had to admit $20 for an eternal investment is pretty cheap." This should remind us leaders to be more thankful for the volunteers who sacrifice so much time and energy to see the kingdom of God proclaimed.
