junior_high_ministry_logoHey everyone! I know I have been severely slacking on this blog lately, but I promise I haven’t stopped writing. One of my dreams is to someday write a book, and I’d love to write specifically on the topic of middle school ministry. A few months ago a fellow middle school ministry champion, Terry Goodwin, came to me asking if I’d be willing to write a 4-week teaching series for his website/publishing company Of course I said yes and started dreaming of what that would look like. Well, it’s exciting for me to announce that it was officially published this week and is available for purchase at

RoadTripSliderI really loved writing this particular series. Basically I wrote it as if you were looking at Jesus’ life on earth as a roadtrip. Every roadtrip has bumps and bruises, but also a lot of fun. It was a blast to come up with some creative object lessons and other activities to flow with the “roadtrip” theme. Each week focuses on a different part of Jesus’ life as explored in the book of Mark. I really believe middle schoolers will love it, as they did here at Southland already! If you decide to use it for your middle school ministry, please let me know how it goes! I’d love to get some feedback!
