- Get A Shorter Evernote Email Address: If you are interested in emailing items into your Evernote, you may want to consider requesting a shorter Evernote email address by logging into Evernote.com, clicking the arrow on the far right by your name, and “chatting with Evernote”. My email address went from some long, random address with 12 characters to 6 letters (of my choosing) then @m.evernote.com
- Send Emails to Evernote Already Tagged in a Specific Notebook: What if you want to have an email end up in a specific notebook? Or maybe add a tag or two? No problem. Here’s how you do it. In the subject of the email, add the name of the notebook where you’d like this item to land prepended with the @ symbol. For tags, prepend those with the # sign. For example, if I have an email regarding an upcoming teaching series that I want to store in my Teaching notebook with the tags “Baptism” and “eKidz,” the email subject line should include the following before sending it to Evernote: @Teachings #Baptism #eKidz
- Merge: Merge your notes. I have shifted to just a handful of notebooks finding that it’s often easier to simply compile all of my notes together around a certain topic, person, or event rather than building a separate notebook for everything or always having to search. You can do this on a Mac by simply clicking on a note then holding down “shift” to select multiple notes or “command” to select specific notes.
Recently we made an introduction. “eGroups meet eKidz. eKidz meet eGroups.” They shook hands but that was just the beginning. It didn’t take long for them to become best friends. They realized that they had so much in common. They both love the color orange. They both care for people and are passionate about engagement.
Today, we are excited to announce that eGroups is now a part of eKidz:
At first glance it may seem like a pretty insignificant change, but you will discover like the ‘Transformers’ there’s more than meets the eye. This change points toward our increased emphasis on strengthening the relationships and engagement between kids and their leaders. In the coming weeks and months, we will be providing more training and resources to support the incredible eGroup leaders in eKidz.
To help us get off to a great start, you can help us start using the right language. We no longer have small groups in eKidz. We have eGroups! If you catch one of your team members saying ‘small group’, you have our permission to have them do a burpee or or say ‘eGroup’ ten times fast. Make sure you welcome eGroups in eKidz this weekend!

At first glance, the following question could be considered one of the dumbest questions in the world. It is the single most frequently asked question by guests at Magic Kingdom in Disney World (literally hundreds of times every day).
The question: What time does the three o’clock parade start? (Yes, you read that right.)
A cast member (Disney staff) may be tempted to insult the guest or make fun of them for asking such a ridiculous question. But not Disney cast members. They have been trained to answer the question that the guest is meaning to ask.
If you’ve ever been to Disney, you may know that the parade is actually very long and while it does start somewhere at three, it may be thirty minutes before it makes it to your spot on the parade route. What the guest really wants to know is when will the parade arrive and where can I best see it.
As a family ministry we must work hard to not only answer the questions that parents and kids are asking but give them the extra information they need to have a great experience. Take the time to answer the questions that families are going to have but haven’t asked yet. After all, part of a welcoming experience is feeling like you are in good hands and that you’re not completely lost.
What questions can we answer before they are even asked?
