Hunger Games, Detroit, and Parenting

This week has been a blur, and already tomorrow (Friday) I’m leaving bright and early on a plane to Detroit to teach my Connect Workshop to a network of area youth workers, to watch The Hunger Games and blog about the film, to preach on parenting Sunday AM, then teach my Parenting the Texting Generation workshop Sunday afternoon, all HERE.

If you’re wondering why I scheduled The Hunger Games into my calendar for this weekend… it’s because almost every teenager in America is talking about this film. Many young people are going to be flocking to theaters at midnight tonight (Thurs) to be the first to see the beloved fictional teenage heroine Katniss on the big screen! We’ll have three of our writers there too (David, Todd and Jay), so take a peek at our movie review page at about 10:30 AM (Pacific time) Friday for a Hunger Games review! If you’ve missed all the hype about this film so far, just take a peek at my blog about it from earlier this week helping parents decide how to help their kids decide. (Yeah… I meant to say it that way). I’ll also be chiming in with my two cents about the film in my blog shortly after I see the film in Detroit on Saturday.

As for my speaking and training this weekend, if you’re in the greater Detroit area, I encourage you to come meet me at one of the venues:

CONNECT Workshop for youth workers, Saturday, 9-2

– Preaching about parenting, Sunday morning at First Baptist Church Wyandotte

Parenting the Texting Generation workshop, Sunday, 2:30 to 4:30PM, same church

Hope to see some of you this weekend!
