    I would have definitely had the iPhone in there. Here is a device that allows me to email, work off my desktops remotely, play games with kids, send picture post cards to families, collaborate with others, read magazines and my Bible from and so much more.

    So, that is one I feel you missed, the iPhone.

      if iPhone became available on Verizon… I’d totally put it at number 11.
      Great addition, Todd!
      (seriously, there are times when I feel like I’m the only young guy in ministry w/out an iPhone…)

    1. Smart Pages by Gospel Light (one of each depending on your area of ministry: Children’s Ministry, Nursery, Early Childrenhood, VBS, Teacher Training, Special Needs) The early version of these, Sunday School Smart Pages was literally my weekly companion in ministry in the early 90s!
