Welcome! A Blog is Born!

Blog Header

At Children Desiring God, our mission is to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things so that the next generation may know and cherish Jesus Christ as the only One who saves and satisfies the desires of the heart. And we know that there are thousands of likeminded people, like you, who share these same aspirations for your own children, and the children and youth of your church. So we started thinking, How can we better encourage and equip one another? And hence, a new blog was born!

As any new parent, we have some great expectations for our little blog. Here are a few:

We hope that you will find this blog…

  • Informative—by offering posts that relate to the foundational vision and philosophy of children’s and youth ministry, and also include very practical helps and resources for anyone who works in these ministries.
  • Inspirational—by sharing testimonies of what God is doing in the lives of teachers and students, and offering devotionals to encourage and move your heart.
  • Interactive—This blog is not just about Children Desiring God having our say. We really want and need your input, too! You have encouraging testimonies, great ideas, and helpful advice to share with the greater body of Christ. We welcome your comments.

Other questions you may have…

Who specifically is this blog for?

Anyone who cares about the faith of the next generation!

How often will there be new posts?

Lord willing, five new posts every week: Monday-Friday

How long will it take me to read each new posting?

Most posts will take less than 5 minutes to read. Our goal is to make each post less than a 10-minute time commitment.

Will there be any free “stuff” given away?

Yes! Beginning this week, check out our weekly Friday CONTEST. We will have some wonderful prizes from various authors and publishers. For example, in this week’s contest we will be giving away 3 copies of the ESV Children’s Bible! 

So, welcome to our blog. Please feel free to join us whenever you can. And don’t forget share with us your comments, because we would love to hear from you. Let’s work together to…

… spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things so that the next generation may know and cherish Jesus Christ!

      Yes, I believe if you click on the icon at the top of the page in the red bar that looks like a radio signal, that should allow you to subscribe to the RSS Feed.
