• Getting More Done

Getting More Done, with Less Effort Because people live in constant motion, it’s easy to forget that we have a choice in everything we do. Balance coaching is about guiding students to make powerful life choices and to select the experiences they want most, rather than dashing about either at the mercy of circumstances or […]

• Resolved: NO Resolutions!

Resolved: No Resolutions! It seems our society places some emphasis on New Year’s resolutions! However, in my experience, most these idle plans are not well thought through and do not really last, but for a few week into the New Year.

• Running On Empty?

Running On Empty? Have you ever run out of gas? I must confess that I have several times! Once I exhausted my supply on the way into the driveway of the service station. I pushed the car into the pumps for relief. And I have walked a few miles only to walk back with a […]

• Care, Beyond Compare!

Care, Beyond Compare To create a caring paradigm in children’s ministry has to come from the Children’s Pastor in concert with their leadership team. When the leader creates that kind of caring atmosphere among the teachers it gives permission for quality of care to trickle down like rain on the children. This is rare, but […]
