2) God's Power / Life-Changing Songs

My favorite is a CEF song named "God's Power". I love the melody and the message is right on target...".My God is bigger than I am, Strongest of all," This is a great one to end on. It is rather mellow and leave a wonderful impact.


3) Pentecost Puppet Skit?

I’m trying to find a puppet skit explaining Pentecost. Any suggestions?

4) Beatitudes T-Shirt?

I was looking over your site and where can I purchase the Be-Attitudes T-shirt designs for our church
Children's Ministry or if you sell the T-Shirts with it on? 

--from SSTN: The picture in the site is from a pattern in the book. You can copy the pattern onto iron-on transfer paper and then iron on a shirt, or you can take the pattern to a local t-shirt print shop to have them print the tees for you.

More Beautiful You

The first link is the artist, telling the story behind the song he wrote. It is a great set up for his song.

This is for all you moms, dads, grandparents and teachers with young girls. This song is now playing on the pop and Christian stations. The video is wonderful. Towards the end you'll see the computer enhancements and how they can make every female in every magazine become the unattainable perfect woman our young girls think they need to be.

Dad's.....PLEASE tell your girls how naturally beautiful they are - every day.

This is the link to the song/video: 

Short Poem for Pre-K?

please send me some short poem for my 3 years old kids in my class

--from SSTN: Children memorize quickly. By using the Psalms, you are giving them poetry and Scripture at the same time. "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want..." What is more poetic than Psalm 23? Children 3-4 years of age will memorize it over several weeks just by reading it to them and having them repeat it in small bites over and over.

7) Poem for the discouraged

Thank you for submitting this. It was on my heart to do something for a few ladies at church since our church as been going through a season of "apathy" and then I opened up to sstn and found this poem. I forwarded it to the ladies group, Sunday school teachers and pastor for some "food for thought." I too sometimes felt like quitting, thanks for the inspiration! Thanks to a wonderful God who reveals himself to us in so many ways...

God's joy,

--from SSTN: thank you for sharing how SSTN has blessed you! I hope you invite your coworkers and pastors to join us at:

We Seek...We Find...Then What?

How many “Christians” only find Christ when they seek Him--to fill the void that only He can fill--only to be frustrated or duped into thinking that this is where our search ends? When in fact it’s just the beginning!
