FUN FRIDAY: "Goliath" Debuts At Six Flags Great America

Confession:  I am a HUGE roller coaster fan!  If I hear of a death-defying roller coaster within driving distance, I am usually there pretty soon.  Well, I just caught wind of this one!  It's in Chicago, so......maybe someday! It's called "GOLIATH!"  It's the fastest, tallest, and steepest wooden roller coaster in the world!  If you dare, expect to plunge down 180 feet while rocketing through twists and turns at 72 miles per hour at a near vertical 85 degree angle. Check out this front seat POV video:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oefUJZU5ms Definitely going to have to check this one out!  By the way, […]

FUN FRIDAY - "The World's Luckiest Unlucky Man"

This is a CRAZY story!  I have no idea if it is all completely true, but if it is - there is no doubt this guy MUST have been a Christian.  God's hand was obviously on him to get him through all of this.  WOW!!!!   Enjoy this on "FUN FRIDAY!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZyUWLW7kEI

Fun Friday: "Mr. T - Treat Your Mother Right"

I ran across this video the other day because my friend, Jeremy Lee (of ParentMinistry.net) uses a portion of this song in his Parent Ministry Podcast which I was blessed to be the guest on this week.  It is hilarious!  Although I am a child of the 80s and a HUGE fan, it emcompasses everything that was WRONG with the 80s.  Bad choreography, hilarious fashion, cheesy concepts, and bad acting.  But, it is so EPIC!!! Since Mother's Day is coming up, I thought I would share it with you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7SBrwUs9fA

These Parents Have A Case Of Brain "Freeze" (FUN FRIDAY)

It's FUN FRIDAY, everybody! I don't know about the kids in YOUR community, but all of my kids are obsessed with "FROZEN." I admit, I liked the movie. I loved the music. I did fall asleep in the middle of it, but that happens to me in just about every movie I see (turn off the lights and I am out). These parents were on a road trip with their young daughter. What ensues is a definite case of brain "freeze." They starting enjoying themselves a little too much as they sang "Love Is An Open Door." Keep a sharp […]

FUN Friday: "Church Signs" (parody of "Blurred Lines")

One of my pet peeves are church signs that are used to display silly little saying that every church gets out of the same book or off the same website.  Church signs should be used to tell the community WHAT IS HAPPENING at the church (service times, upcoming events, etc.)  My personal opinion is that the world is not impressed with our "Eternity:  your choice - smoking or non-smoking" humor. So, when I saw this very well-done video - I had to share it.  One of the best parodies I have ever seen.  Hilarious!  Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCRzjRxmvgI

FUN Friday: "Olympic Skiers Attacked By Star Wars Imperial Walkers"

I am sure you have all enjoyed the Winter Olympic coverage the past week.  Certainly, it is awesome to watch these incredible athletes accomplish things that most of us could only dream of doing. To go along with the Olympic theme, this week's FUN FRIDAY is one of the most creative Olympic Spoof videos I have seen.  Watch, as Star Wars' Imperial Walkers (AT-ATs) shoot lasers to disrupt Olympic hopefuls' chances at a gold medal.  It's all in fun, folks.  So, just laugh... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mKVJeA-wTw

FUN FRIDAY: "What If Conference Calls Happened In Real Life?"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYu_bGbZiiQ#t=210   If you have ever done participated in one of those dreaded "Conference Calls," you will absolutely laugh your head off at this hilarious video that depicts WHAT IF those conference calls took place (as is) in person.  HILARIOUS!

FUN FRIDAY: Delta's On An 80's Trip!

I love creativity!  I especially love when someone can take something that has been around for years and give it a fresh, bold, creative twist so that it piques the interest of the audience once again. Delta has done exactly this with their "in-flight safety" instructional video.  Being a child of the 80's, it was fun to identify all of the wacky 80's references they showed:  ALF, Teddy Ruxpin, Rubik's Cube, Devo, and more!  See if you can find them all! Ask yourself, what is something in your Kids Ministry that can use a new dose of creativity?  What activity, […]

FUN Friday: "Get Off The Phone!" Song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfUD0WhE264 Ever since I saw them perform as "The Fabulous Bentley Brothers" on Phil Vischer's "What's In The Bible?," I have been a huge fan of Rhett and Link.  These two guys have made a living creating hilarious videos for YouTube.  My son, Jordan, is one of their biggest fans. Rhett and Link are such talented guys.  Not only are they HILARIOUS, but they actually are very gifted songwriters and performers.  They have many parody songs that will make you laugh out loud.  This is definitely one of them!  The "Get Off The Phone!" Song is a humorous commentary on […]

FUN FRIDAY: "It's Not About The Nail!"

This is one of the funniest videos I have ever seen.  I was reminded of it last night at an event I attended, so I wanted to share it with those of you who may not have seen it yet.  It is certainly something that EVERY man can relate to.  A word of advice:  "Don't try to fix it, just listen."  (if only I would heed my own advice more often, LOL) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4EDhdAHrOg

Our Kids Ministry shoots a LOT of video!  As you know, you can't be perfect every time.  As a result, we enjoy poking fun of ourselves by producing a blooper reel for every single series we produce at High Voltage Kids Ministry Resources.  Well, here is a compilation of some of our biggest mishaps, miscues, and misfortunes for the year 2013! Those of you who use our Kidmin Curriculum will want to check this out!  It will give you a behind-the-scenes preview of some of what is coming your way in 2014!  Pull up a seat...and laugh...at us! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qw2VDlFqKVY&feature=youtu.be

FUN FRIDAY: Coca Cola Parenthood Ad

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sNlcwAh83Y If you haven't seen this ad by now, you owe it to yourself to watch!  It's a very real-to-life portrayal of the unpredictable roller-coaster that is Parenthood.  It will have you laughing and warm your heart all within one minute. It's a great reminder to those of us in Kids Ministry as well.  Kids Ministry is not all "neat and tidy."  Sometimes it can be a really messy job (and not only because of the messes that little ones can make).  In the end, the result is the JOY of knowing that you are affecting a life for eternity.  […]
