• Coach’s Conundrum #12

Coach’s Conundrum #12 Seven Times in Seven Places! This is not original with me. I first heard it from Karl Bastian, and I have been using it ever since. It just makes sense to me, knowing how much communication is needed in children’s ministry to just get the simplest message to stick. So here is [...]

• Moving Forward, Stepping UP

Moving Forward, Stepping UP Sharon and I took an Alaskan Cruise this year for our vacation. Of course, the Holland America Cruise Ship Zuiderdam was just huge. One of our off repeated experiences every day was to leave our room to navigate our way from deck to deck. There were really two ways to do [...]

• Coach’s Conundrum #7

7. “You can’t expect different results by repeating what you have always done.” This conundrum might have something to do with not being able to solve the Rubik’s Cube. You keep trying to solve the puzzle, without a clue of how to solve it. One just keeps trying it over and over, continuing the rotation, [...]

The extremes do occur, too much time and too little time, but for this conundrum to work, we determine the pace [...]
