Mardi Gras is a way of life for many, but it creates in the soul an appetite of insatiable longing; it wreaks havoc through disruption to lives and destruction of financial stability. While both partners in a marriage are responsible for their decisions, I discovered that my husband’s happiness (and his success in his business) could be profoundly influenced by my willing ability to eradicate Mardi Gras from my heart.

I recognize that most teachers try hard and take their callings seriously. But certainly Sunday School doesn’t have to be the mind-numbing chore that it seems to be for many members. In this post, I offer ten simple tips that could radically improve Sunday School lessons. (Yes, I will be that bold.)
