My Favorite BOOKS!

Because You Asked!

I just returned from speaking at a phenomenal Children’s Ministry Conference in Torrance, CA. Thank you Stef Mitrano!!


My weekend was spent with several hundred people, under one roof, who love kids and are teaching them about God! It was CRAZY- but what would you expect from hundreds of people who work with kids? So FUN!

While teaching my workshops, I quoted several different authors, and told quite a few people I’d give you my book list. So, here are my top favorite books!


The Message is the Bible in contemporary language. When I memorize scripture, I use King James – or, New King James – version of the Bible. However, I LOVE reading The Message,   especially, aloud to kids.
