family ministry resources for children and youth

It’s June! Your Family Ministry Resources Are Here!

For some, June is a month filled with outdoor grilling, stockpiled cans of bug spray, and beach towel turnover. For others, like our M2P friends in Australia, it’s the winter months with lots of snuggles, cups of cocoa, and thick, fuzzy socks. Regardless of location, June is the perfect time to take that much-needed getaway because June presents an invitation for “pause,” even if it’s a small book nook down the street.

June is the halfway mark through the year, giving us the opportune time to look back on the last five months and take inventory. What do we want to take with us into the next six months? What do we want to eliminate? Personally? Professionally? It’s an excellent marker to remind us to stop and breathe. And if we’re on auto-pilot, it gives us a chance to get off. So whether you’re in a swimsuit or a flannel onesie, we hope you find that much-needed time to pull away.
