Every once in a while here on Dad in the Middle, I feature a deal from Only144.com. These are the people who accumulate great children’s ministry resources and sell them to you at incredible discounted prices. I believe in what Only 144 is doing, and I am glad to support (plus every once in a while they send me the package for free which doesn’t hurt ).
Only144.com has a new deal starting this coming Friday, September 25, 2012, last 144 hours, and in my humble opinion, it is the best deal they have offered yet (and that is saying something). I have chosen to promote this deal not because I believe in Only 144 (which I do) but because I believe everyone who works with kids ought to have these resources at their fingertips.
This coming deal features the products of Jim Wideman. I am a big fan of Jim Wideman not only as a children’s ministry leader but as a person. I have had the distinct pleasure of getting to know numerous leaders in the field of children’s ministry over the last several years, but there is not one person who I have learned more from than Jim Wideman, and frankly there is no one that I respect as much as him either. Jim’s heart is first for God, secondly for his family, third for kids, and fourth for helping to raise up young leaders who in the field of children’s ministry. I am grateful for all that I have learned from Jim Wideman about children’s ministry, but frankly it is his words on being a parent and raising kids that have impacted me the most.
