Reaching the Heart of Your Child
Based on Ginger’s best-selling book, Don’t Make Me Count to Three! There is far more to parenting than getting children to “act” right. We have to get them to “think” right and to be motivated out of a love of virtue rather than a fear of punishment. Ginger equips parents to reach past the outward behavior of their children and address the issues of the heart. Move beyond the frustrations of not knowing how to handle issues of disobedience and into a confident approach to raising your children.

Choosing to homeschool does not exempt us from spiritual warfare; instead it puts our families on the front line. With over 80% of evangelical Christian young people leaving their faith when they leave home, never to return, something is wrong in our tactics in fighting the enemy. Ignore an enemy and he will defeat you. Underestimate an enemy and he will defeat you. The good news is that we can live in victory! God gives us all the weapons and strategy we need to prepare our children for the spiritual battles to come. Trained as a military warrior, Chuck offers insight, training, and strategies for not only surviving the battle, but also advancing the kingdom through spiritual warfare.

In our world of entertainment-minded youth, are we doing enough to prepare them for the possibility of challenging days ahead? Chuck encourages parents and teens to"Know What You Believe", "Know What's Coming", and "Know What You Will Do" so that if the day should come, we will stand and not bow!

Secrets of Family Business
When Drew Perry was 18, he became a real estate investor and brought his college-educated dad home from corporate America in just three years. He also created a system for selling houses on eBay in just 7 days, which he sold to investors. His dad eventually joined him in the real estate business. Even though bringing dad home from his corporate job is tough, starting or building a family business presents challenges of its own which most families never expect.

How to Parent without Provoking Children to Anger
Does your child have a comeback for everything you tell him to do or always try and get the last word, even if it’s mumbled under his breath? Does he become mad and lose control when you discipline him rather than repenting? Or does he seem indifferent, giving the impression that discipline doesn’t faze him in the least? Through biblical insights and powerful drama, learn how to avoid the snares of parent-provoked anger and raise emotionally healthy children.

Cultivating a Faith That Speaks
In a time when voices of faith are being silenced, Christians have a wonderful opportunity. Psalm 107:2 says, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.” It’s God’s desire that as His children, we would engage every corner of the culture—stepping out in faith, away from the comfort of our churches and bringing the hope of Jesus to a generation in moral, emotional and spiritual crisis. Listen as Heidi St. John shares three things that you can do right now to give feet and a voice to your faith! You’ll leave encouraged and inspired!
