ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Donations Are Funding Abortions

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Donations Are Funding Abortions

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is an extremely popular fundraiser that is sweeping the nation. The problem is that many donations made to the ALS Association are going straight to the funding of abortions.

One of the major ways that ALS Association researchers test their proposed medications for ALS is to test them through embryonic stem cell research. Essentially, these scientists are killing unborn babies in order to research ways to extend the lives of other humans.

I am in full support of helping those with ALS and bringing more attention to this condition that plagues many people. But, many donations being made to the ALS research groups will support the continuation of abortions for medical research. If you want to support those with ALS, donate directly to their families or choose an organization that you know you can trust.

Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Review for Children


Is Guardians of the Galaxy appropriate for children?

Marvel has started a whole new series of superheros, with Guardians of the Galaxy being portrayed as the next big hit for children’s movies. I saw the movie this past weekend, and I can tell you this: it’s different than the other Marvel movies.

There is more questionable content in this movie. Should you take your child to see it?

Is Minecraft Safe for Children?


Last week, I interviewed two kidmin experts who shared their knowledge of Minecraft and whether or not it is safe for your kids, and if there is potential for us to use Minecraft in ministry. The experts who joined me for the interview are Trisha Gail Peach and Bill Gunter.

In general, is Minecraft safe for children? Why or why not?

The Huge List of Children’s Ministry Curriculum Providers

Curriculum Pic

It’s official- there is finally a comprehensive list of children’s ministry curriculum and resource providers! Because of the size of this list, I have divided it into several different categories:

  • Major Children’s Ministry Curriculum Providers
  • Curriculum Packs and Single Lesson Providers (coming soon)
  • Children’s Bibles and Bible Resources (coming soon)

Children’s ministry curriculum providers are companies that create curriculum with a scope and sequence that runs for over 3 months, and typically have a scope and sequence of 1-3 years.

These lists are designed to give you the ability to take a look at all of your options when it comes to curriculum- so that you can choose the best curriculum for your ministry needs! As you can imagine, it was alot of work to put together this list, and there is definitely a good chance I missed a curriculum provider or two. So if you see that I missed one, add it into the comments, and I will add it to the list!

Curriculum Providers: If you would like to request a review for one of your products, please visit the Product Reviews section and contact me for further details.

Ladies and gentlemen… here are your curriculum providers!
