  1. Danielle, I enjoy your posts so much. I just completed my first year as Director of Children’s Ministry in July. I have learned so much this year, but one area I need to grow in is equipping volunteers. I know this book would be so helpful to me. Thank you for all of your insight and ideas. May God continue to bless you and your ministry.
