Friday Bag #17

The Friday Bag

50 Dangerous things (You should let your kids do!) –  “In a time when children are too often coddled,  50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do)  reminds readers that climbing trees is good for the soul, and that a pocket knife is not a weapon. Full of exciting ways children can explore the world around them, this book explains how to “Play with Fire” and “Taste Electricity” while learning about safety. With easy-to-follow instructions, it includes:  Activities, like walking a tightrope;  Skills, like throwing a spear;  Projects, like melting glass; and  Experiences, like sleeping in the wild.”

Engaging your Kids in Discussing their Day –   Fine.  Sometimes I wonder if that s the response that Adam got from Cain when he asked him throughout his life, So how was your day, son?

Visual Theology: One Another – This is one of my favorites of the series Tim Challies has done.

Here’s a video I did last year when I attended the Children’s Pastor Conference in San Diego (and also Orlando.) I will always have a special place in my heart for those that lead children, and there are few places as unique as CPC for training. learning, and encouragement.
