EPIC: The Fight for Faith and Family in a New Age
When you became a parent, you enlisted in a spiritual army. You engaged in an epic battle between good and evil. Join Heidi for an hour that will change the way you see your role in it and equip you for the battles yet to come.
Today's mothers are living in challenging times. We're facing things that our mothers could never have imagined. Our lives are vastly different than the generation before us. Many moms are struggling with fear of the future and worry about raising children in today's culture, but God says loud and clear, "Do not be afraid! Be strong and courageous!" Mom, you have a mission: to raise the next generation of teachers, doctors, judges, police officers, grocery store clerks, attorneys, nurses, and parents. Yes! You are raising the next generation of parents. It doesn't take very long for one generation to hand the baton to the next, and, as mothers, we've got to be ready to prepare our children for whatever they may face as followers of Jesus Christ. Heidi will challenge as she talks about what it will take to "Become MomStrong", drawing on truths from God's Word to answer the tough questions this generation of kids is asking and prepare moms to meet the challenges head-on.

The First Three Years: A Workshop for Homeschool Rookies
If homeschooling up until now feels more like drudgery than delight or if the thought of homeschooling makes your knees shake and your palms sweat, this is the workshop for you! Perhaps you've been hearing from "experts" that view homeschooling as just another form of education, like any other. Public schools think that way, but homeschooling is nothing like the school system. It's just the opposite. Learning at home is an adventure, a journey, a new lifestyle. Although you're nervous now, it'll all be okay. Homeschooling is worth it. So sit back and relax. You'll soon discover that homeschooling is a journey like no other.
Help and Hope for the Overwhelmed Mom
Parenting. It's exhausting and exhilarating, frustrating and fascinating. Like all things that are God-breathed, it's a Kingdom-building exercise. It's a masterful strategy, this idea of using all night feedings, miscarriage and labor, teenagers (see how teens and labor go hand in hand?), and even homeschooling to teach us to trust the heart the Father. But that's exactly what God wants you to learn to do. Join Heidi St. John for an hour of encouragement and inspiration that will lift you up and remind you of the WHY of homeschooling.
Homeschooling Held Hostage
In the past fifteen years, we've seen a lot of changes in the homeschool community. There is much more pressure being put on homeschoolers to excel academically. We've gone from a few brave moms who, without access to mainstream curriculum, managed to give their children an excellent education, but we've forgotten what made it excellent. It was excellent because these moms had a vision for homeschooling. They weren't trying to re-create school at home, they were simply being obedient to the One who had called them to be different. They knew that if He had called them, He would equip them. And they were right. If you're struggling to find joy in your calling as a homeschooling parent, if you're looking for more LIFE in your homeschool, this is one workshop you won't want to miss.
Join Heidi St. John for an evening just for moms. In addition to some fun and a wonderful time of worship together, Heidi will be sharing her heart for moms-- and we'll be hearing from those of you in the audience as well. This is an evening you will not want to miss.
Culture Shock: How to Prepare Your Kids for a Post-Christian Era (Without Scaring Them!)
Many parents are struggling to talk to their kids about the rapidly changing cultural landscape, and we often forget that God’s unchanging Word offers relevant answers to even our most challenging questions. It’s more important than ever to teach our children what God says about their worth, their sexuality and their future. God has good things planned for those who love Him! Join Heidi for an hour that will challenge and encourage you as she speaks directly to the issues of the day and reminds you of your role in the midst of it all: to teach your children to walk in the Truth.
Off the Bench: Overcoming Fear and Finding Your Voice
Fear. It’s a driving force in the culture today—and yet—God’s Word teaches us that fear is a spirit. “God did not give us a spirit of fear,” so why are we so afraid? For most of her life, Heidi St. John struggled with fear and anxiety on a daily basis. In this hour-long session, she’ll share her story of finding her God-given voice and explain how our weaknesses can be used for God’s glory. From fears about homeschooling to fears about the culture, God says, “I am on the throne! Do not fear!”
Homeschooling Isn’t the Answer (But it’s a great start!)
Have you ever found yourself drawn to “formulaic” parenting? Have you started thinking that if you will commit to homeschooling your kids, they will not be drawn into sin or rebellion? It’s easy to do, and dangerous too. Satan loves a soft target—and parents who believe homeschooling is “the” way to keep their kids on the straight and narrow often fall victim to the very thing they are trying to avoid. If your homeschool has lost it’s JOY, or if you are struggling to find time to disciple your children, this session is for you. Listen in as Heidi shares three pitfalls of modern homeschooling and offer ways to guard against them and flourish—from diapers to diplomas!
