Thank you for Kidology. It's amazing and such a gift to those of us working with kids. God has multiplied your efforts exponentially to reach so many kids and people who minister to them. May His blessings remain on you and your ministry.

ABC's of KIDOLOGY: The Letter "E" = Equip and Encourage

Part 2: Encouraging



  • Get Away from Ministry Regularly
  • Don't make your ministry your identity
  • God isn't impressed with your ministry
  • Learn that you aren't as important as you think :)
  • Disconnect when you are overwhelmed to gain perspective



  • Put God and Family First to remain encouraged
  • Get Away; Take Time Off
  • Don't Over Value Your Role, It's God's Ministry
  • Only YOUR Kids are yours, the rest are God's
  • Save encouraging notes to re-read



  • Identify what encourages you, and fight for it.
  • Look for results, they are encouraging
  • Encouraging Others:
    • Appreciate People
    • Recognize Effort
    • Affirmation (most kidmins are under affirmed)
