I’m in sunny (well actually it is beginning to rain) San Diego, telling guests at the International Network of Children’s Ministry Children’s Pastor Conference how to take traditional VBS out of the church building and into the community.
We have been having great conversations, and enthusiasm is mounting around LifeWay’s new Backyard Kids Club resource.
If you are at CPC this week, I’d love for you to stop by the LifeWay booth and let me personally introduce you to this exciting new resource.
If you are unable to stop by, never fear! You too can explore Backyard Kids Club resource at LifeWay.com/vbs.
Last week we headed over the river and through the woods to North Carolina for VBS 2013 Preview Number 1. Today we are headed to Cowtown (Fort Worth, Texas) for Preview Number 2! Looking forward to seeing all our friends from out west.

The One we proclaim through VBS has come!
Did you know we provide a choreography DVD for our Spanish customers? We began producing a Spanish choreography video for VBS 2010: Saddle Ridge Ranch. I’m so thankful to Angel Ortiz and Elizabeth Works, fellow LifeWay employees, who always are on set to interpret! Otherwise, I would have no idea what’s being said! It gets comical at times.
Constanza, our terrific on-camera host, listens to the English music and watches the choreography DVD. Then, she learns the Spanish songs and alters the choreography as needed. (Sometimes, there is no Spanish word that exactly matches the English word, so the songs and choreography have to be altered.)
The DVD is available in the Spanish Sampler (EBV 2013 Muestrario en español), product number 005490073, $69.99. Be sure to share this news with your Spanish congregations!

It’s finally beginning to look like and feel a little bit like fall around here, which makes me happy because fall is my favorite time of year. It’s the time of year for chili and college football! So, I thought I would share a few crafts from Pinterest to help inspire you. Enjoy!
I thought this was cute and a great idea for a kids’ table at Thanksgiving or any other event. Chalkboard place mats can keep kids busy while the adults eat and fellowship.

Fall is a beautiful time of year where we can watch the leaves change colors. Celebrate this with your kids by making a tree with finger paint. Let them use the colors of the leaves around them to make colorful trees.
