Responding Biblically to Fear, Worry, and Anxiety
Are you often worried or “concerned,” “troubled,” or “bothered?” Regardless of the term used, worry saps our energy, drains our joy, and even aggravates many physical ailments. The Bible teaches that worry is sinful and a sign of unbelief, and that fear is wrong when it is allowed to motivate thinking and behavior that is unbiblical. In this workshop, you will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple your children with the same truths.

Most of us know that worry is wrong, so we disguise it with different terms like, “concerned,” “troubled,” or “bothered.” Regardless of the term used, worry saps our energy, drains our joy, destroys evangelism, and even aggravates many physical ailments. The Bible is clear that worry is sinful, idolatrous, and a sign of unbelief, and that fear is wrong when it is allowed to motivate thinking and behavior that is unbiblical. In this workshop, you will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple your children with the same truths.

This is one of the most breathtaking and perplexing sites in the world. Standard geological explanations for its formation are wrong, and most creationists have overlooked some major pieces of the puzzle. Amazingly, what carved the canyon also explains most of the fascinating geological features in the entire area (e.g. Monument Valley, The Petrified Forest, Canyonlands & Arches, Canyon de Chelley, etc.). Furthermore, they all formed very quickly! What happened?!

For many families, the idea of gardening is overwhelming. Poor weather, nutrient poor soil, insects, and busy lifestyles can quickly derail the best of intentions. The good news is that we have found a way (and taught thousands of others!) to grow an abundance of nutrient dense, beyond organic produce in even the smallest of urban lots. Join us as we discuss gardening aeroponically (a form of hydroponics) and in containers in this popular and informative talk.

One of the most remarkable stories in American history pertains to the arrival in 1619 of the first Africans to the English colony at Jamestown. Down through the centuries, the descendents of those first Africans could count among their number cattle ranchers, teachers and Confederate soldiers. History is rarely neat and tidy and often flies in the face of prevailing orthodoxies. Few stories capture the imagination and offer a countervailing story of providential triumph like that handful of Bantus of Ndongo from Angola in the earliest days of the Virginia colony.

Raising a prodigal is every Christian parent’s worst nightmare. Horrifyingly, George Barna contends that over 60 percent of Christian kids will run off to university and "lose their faith." But there is great news! Your child doesn't have to become a statistic. Your child can become an adult who loves the Lord the same way you do - but this will likely require a radical parenting reset on your part.

The book of Genesis comes under more attack than any other book in the Bible. Specifically, the accounts of creation, original sin, and the global flood are at the forefront.

However, much more troubling is the question of why so many Christians dilute the Bible here!

An A to Z Guide For Character-Healthy Homeschooling
If we homeschool simply to achieve high academic marks, we are squandering the opportunity to influence our children for Christ. Character healthy leaders are those children who have learned to elevate virtues above feelings. If we spend our homeschooling hours simply on academics and activities, we may win the praise of man, but we risk losing the hearts of our children. In our few short years with our children we must focus on the first things first and character is always the first thing!

Speaker: Dr. Andrew Fletcher and Kendra Fletcher
Time: 3:00 pm
Room: Meeting Room 113/114

Money. Sex. Popularity. Cars. Perfect bodies. Homeschooling. Wait. Homeschooling? When we look to something like money or sex to provide us with a sense of worth or value, if we're hoping that our popularity will make us feel more loved, if we're striving for sex appeal, and yes, even if we're placing our hope in homeschooling, we have created idols for ourselves that enslave us and keep us from walking in freedom. Nobody believes that homeschooling is really going to save our kids, but hidden in our thoughts is the idea that our kids will become good and godly adults if we only do it right. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion of what it means to shift our hope from Jesus to anything else. We might easily point fingers at others who seem to be worshipping the obvious idols the world offers, but what about when the idols are good gifts from God, gifts such as homeschooling? And ultimately we'll ask the question, are you a hope shifter?

Most parents place a high value on the education they can give to their children. It prepares them for life and gives them hope for a happy future. In the old days, the three R’s of schooling included reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithematic. Is homeschooling succeeding because it is reclaiming the tried and true educational philosophy or is something else going on? In this workshop, Davis presents a compelling case for you to believe in the power of homeschooling and six new R’s to back it up.

The brain controls everything that you do, so no matter what your IQ, it is essential to have a well-organized and high processing brain to take advantage of all that intelligence. It could mean the difference in having a great computer that was connected to high speed internet instead of dial-up. The function is incredibly different even though the intelligence of the computer didn't change at all.

Why We Need a Parental Rights Amendment
Homeschooling freedom stands on two essential pillars of freedom: the right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children, and the free exercise of religion. Yet only one of these freedoms—religious liberty—is explicitly guaranteed in the United States Constitution, and both freedoms are under attack.
