Really excited to be a part of D6 this year. I will be doing a couple of breakouts. This is one of the kids ministry conferences I haven’t been to yet. I have heard lots of good things. Really excited to connect with old friends and make new ones.

If I delight in the sound of my kids having a good time laughing and playing in the next room, imagine how our Father in heaven delights over us. Our father in heaven delights in us when we are simply having fun.
