"It's More Than Fun"

One might wonder why a Seminary grad would don a purple-haired wig, sing songs and tell stories to children, but when speaking to Robyn Carnes (MA '06) one quickly learns that God is behind it all. Carnes is the person behind the character Sweet Tart, the personality of More Than Fun® in Denver, Colo.

Sweet Tart was born out of the need to make money while Carnes worked toward her Seminary degree. She never dreamed it would turn into a full time ministry, but as Carnes says, “You can’t put God in a box.”

When asked about her passion for children, Carnes states, “I once heard someone say that children are the message we will send to a generation we will not see. That is a huge part of the foundation of what we do at More Than Fun, because I think we need to be so much more intentional about not only what we’re teaching children, but how we’re teaching them. In this country, we put so much emphasis on the physical development of the child and the emotional and psychological development, but the spiritual development of the child is foundational. That is what everything else is built upon. Kids learn all the time, so why not teach them?”

More Than Fun’s ministry is about more than just entertaining children. Carnes and her husband spend time planning and praying through lessons that will engage children, meeting them where they are without “dumbing” down the Bible, its stories or its truths. And the impact extends well beyond the children. Carnes relays that many parents confide in her about how they learned from Sweet Tart’s stories and lessons.

So while a purple-haired, puppet-toting character may not fit your idea of a Seminary grad, don’t let appearances fool you. “Don’t ever put God in a box,” Carnes says. “When you put God in a box, you put yourself in a box. As long as you are in His will, there are no boundaries to what He will have you do as well.”
