Canva is an incredible program and though I've used it for years, I continuously discover new things about it. In this short video, I'll share how to change not only big blocks of color (which is obvious and easy) but how to change even small parts of images in the program. Lots of great options for your designs—check it out!
This is the greatest tool ever to help in creating church communications! If you have ever tried to remove background around an image, you know how difficult it can be.
With Canva it is almost magically easy and then you can export the image to use in any program you want.
I had heard about the tool, but I didn't get around to using it until one Sunday morning my pastor (now sort of retired, but still preaching at times) HAD to have a flyer for a service he was doing later that afternoon. The video below shows how Canva came to the rescue to help me create what I needed.
One of the most important things you can do for your congregation is to encourage them to read through the Bible in a year in chronological order. I've created a printed schedule, booklets, and motivational articles to help you do that. Now is a great time to be planning ahead to do this.
All of it FREE to everyone. Please pass on and share with others.

It’s terribly frustrating to feel like no one understands you isn’t it? To feel like you don’t fit in?

As always in this approximately 5-minute podcast I want to help you focus on God’s Word, the incredible calling you have to share God’s message of salvation, and to strengthen and encourage you.
Devotion #12: You are an ambassador in enemy-occupied territory, prepare to be misunderstood
We are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. (2 Cor 5:20, KJV)
I often feel sorry for the government spokespeople on the evening news. They are attempting to explain government policies and actions to a frequently hostile audience.
