TEACHER, AUTHOR, EDUblogger "I want to (read and) write books that unblock the traffic jam in everyone's mind." ~J. Updike
A truly unique YA book that is long over-do and ready for its audience.
Parent a Pastor or Minister? Equip yourself with the basic tools that will help you survive ministry and the church without falling apart.
The Survival Guide for Pastor’s Kids, is a book written by a Pastor’s Kid for Pastor’s kids. Being a Minister is hard work and being the child of a minister is at times impossible. With the new responsibility of sharing your parents with an entire congregation and a pressure for perfection, the weight of your parents’ new position may cause you to question many things including your faith. This guide helps walk you through tips and secrets to what to expect and how to escape losing the family you once knew for the new calling in your life. While recommended for youth, this guide serves as an enlightening insight for Pastor’s and Ministers who want to relate better to their children and build stronger family ties.
This is a must read for all children of ministers, missionaries, and pastors! As a Christian whose field is child psychology, this would be required reading for my students, many of whom grew up as children of ministers, if I were still teaching! Actually, I think the guide is good for any child whose parents are leaders in their church. I recognize how it is directed to specific young people whose parents are ministers church: “unfortunately it also means people will place highexpectations on you that are unfair and unreasonable.” But the steps you outline and the Scripture you quote would answer a lot of the questions that many children in a Christian home ask.
This book is brilliant and it is written beautifully. I’ve no suggestions for improving your writing as I find no flaws.
The length of your sentences, paragraphs, and chapters should appeal to young people and the steps you suggest are well within their reach. You write in a clear, compelling way with obvious empathy that young folks will appreciate and to which they’ll be attracted. I do hope you go on to add more chapters – perhaps of a more general nature and directed to any child from parents who are leaders (deacons, elders, etc.) in their church.
This is a professional, inspired, informative book that should be in all of our churches and Christian homes! Excellent work! and prayers for its publication.~Patricia A. Johnson-Laster, Break Free!

I am an Educator, Award Winning Christian Author, Freelance Writer & Blogger,Youth mentor, Bible Teacher, and TREK AWANA director. Teaching provides an opportunity for me to engage in continual learning and growth on many levels. I work for my students not only to master the course material but to give them the indispensable advantage of having a growth mindset. This mindset has been stripped from many of our students; yet this is the undisputed secret ingredient for their success in the world outside of my classroom. I strive to be a globally connected educator. With my #LatinoEd #Edublog I seek (as J. Updike says) "to unblock the traffic jam" in the minds of my students and peers. In this way, long after they have left my classroom and they encounter a world that will try (and many times succeed) in knocking them down and telling them they "can't," they will bounce right back up, and with an intrinsic confidence say, "Watch me. Watch me make a difference!" It is then I will feel that I too have made a difference.
