Southern California in December ~ Not as Tough as It Sounds
Each year more than 4,000 people migrate to the city of Pasadena, California, to become part of the Petal Pushers. This group of dedicated volunteers is integral to the formidable effort of piecing together stem by stem and bud by bud the The Lutheran Hour float. All totaled, this year's Petal Pushers will contribute their meticulous services toward the construction of eight floats (including the Lutheran Hour Ministries entry) in the Tournament of Roses Parade, which is held each year on New Year's Day.

Kids Dig It when You Spend Time with Them
It's no secret that kids need our attention -- and our time. This world is awash in influences that shape junior minds before they're old enough to even begin thinking for themselves. The goal of the Men's NetWork "Do Stuff With Your Kids" program is to give men and men's groups some helpful resources for integrating into the lives of kids. Loaded with great ideas, it offers details on organizing events and activities; provides examples of the types of activities you might want to consider; suggests local partners who can offer their expertise and experience; gives stats and research to show what some of the experts are saying; and features a downloadable PDF manual to give you as a guide to use.

In other years the tide may have turned. That's when financial struggles, unemployment, underemployment, health issues, broken relationships, or the loss of a loved one may be the norm. To be sure these difficulties can make holidays tough. And of all the holidays, it may well be that Thanksgiving is worst of all, especially when it feels like there's nothing to be thankful for.

Men's NetWork Bible Studyl:: Mormons: Who They Are, What They Believe
