Ministering to Middle Schoolers - Waffles, Spaghetti or both?

Breakout by Heather Flies | It’s been said that guys are like waffles and girls are like spaghetti—two foods that sound terrible together.

How do you talk about feelings without the guys resorting to armpit noises? How do you honor both genders when they’re so different? Drawing from 20 years of experience with middle schoolers, Heather Flies will offer practical ideas on middle school programming, teaching, activities and relationships.
