I've been promising this post for a while, so I thought I'd go ahead and write it. Secretly, in the world I've my mind, I'd love to write a blog of nothing but top 10's; it's my analytical nature.

Top Ten Things I Got from the NYMC:
1. Family is First
2. Be-with Mentoring
3. Email is for Old People.
4. Breakfast works for busy kids.
5. Let your kids lead.
6. Lead your kids.
7. Media is useful.
10. Your life will teach more than any sermon.

Some of these things, I already knew, and the NYMC reinforced them. Others of them, I learned more about. Some were novel for me and made the NYMC completely worth every dime! Ask me about something and I'll give you more detail.

I'd like to hear more about "Email is for old people!" Funny! True, too.

That one is pretty self-explanitory. Kids don't email . . . they text. And sometimes, they Facebook. I already knew this, but I didn't realize how much knowing this should impact youth ministry. Hmmm . . . instead of collecting email addresses, I now collect cell phone numbers.

I also had to add texting to my cell phone plan. . . and extra $8 bucks a month!
