LOCAL: Speaking to Teenagers

Doug Fields. Duffy Robbins.

If you work with teenagers, I probably don’t have to say anything else. These two men are premier in their field. And if you live in the DFW area, you have the opportunity to see them live in a small setting when they bring the Speaking to Teenagers seminar to FBC Mckinney on September 18th.

If you don’t know anything about Doug and Duffy. Let me introduce you:

Both Doug and Duffy have had the privilege of speaking to teenagers every week for over 30 years. Doug is the founder of Simply Youth Ministry and a veteran youth pastor who was most recently at Saddleback Church in Southern California for 18 years. He has authored over 50 books—including Speaking To Teenagers with Duffy Robbins. Duffy is Professor of Youth Ministry of Eastern University in St. Davids, Pennsylvania. When Duffy isn’t teaching, he’s speaking at Seminars and workshops all over the world. In addition to his speaking ministry, Duffy has authored 17 youth ministry books and textbooks.

Doug and Duffy love Jesus, one another, youth workers, laughing and teaching others to be more effective communicators. This will be a very fun, informative and fast paced day.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
