Come early to get a good seat in this popular workshops where we explore how kids today don't learn the way kids learned even 10 years ago! And, if we keep teaching them the way we have in the past, we're going to lose them. Come to this workshop to learn how to use the principles of "loopy learning" to capture kids' attention, keep them engaged, help them remember the lessons for years to come, nurture a love for God's Word, and strengthen their friendship with Jesus! I'm so excited about this workshop and am actively using the principles in my own children's ministry. These are exciting times!
