- BDAG, TDNT, New American Commentary, Reformation Study Bible. Those are usually my starting points.
- I have different layouts set up for each of my three different sermons for the week, using KJV, commentaries by Fruchtenbaum and Cyril Barber, Believer's Bible Commentary, Guzik, Wuest, Life Application, NIVAC, Wiersbe and Opentext Clauses.
- ESV + NIV Bible, BDAG, LOUWNIDA, WBC are some solids.

- Graham crackers - we have kids with milk allergies and those work great.
- Mums Mums for the 0-1's. They ask for them by name!Baby Mum-Mum - All Natural Rice Biscuits for KidsMum-Mums are the original rice teething biscuit brand in North America, parent trusted for 25 years. Free of the top 10 common allergens, with no added salt or sugar, Baby Mum-Mums are the only teething biscuit that is fruit-juice sweetened.mummums.com
- I appreciated the list in the magazine, my wife and I have picked up the kids a little frustrated if the candy has been piled on high from the kid's classes! In our youth minsitry we used to give away energy drinks until one day I asked myself: "What the heck am I doing?!" Needless to say, it's been a long time since we've gone that route.
