Young Men and Low Expectations
Young men have gone from storming the beaches of Normandy to storming the fridge for leftovers. The expectations our culture has placed on young men have decreased with every generation. The result has been a generation of young men who have traded purpose for play. How did we get here? Can we and should expect more from our young men? Do young men want to be challenged? This workshop will answer those three questions and share vital principles for demanding more from the next generation.

Ginger Hubbard
Parenting on Purpose
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.

Studies of kids from Christian homes indicate that those who leave the faith later, very frequently traced their doubts and conflicts to their middle school years. The pre-teen ages are critical not only for faith in God but for all kinds of relationships - and we parents often don't realize how important these years are! Get a handle on the challenges of the pre- and early adolescent years, and lay a foundation to make the teen years GREAT.

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.

Six years later he lived out those words, murdered in the jungle of Ecuador by the group of Auca Indians he was trying to reach with the Gospel. His life inspired a generation of young people to spend their lives on something worthwhile. What lessons does Jim's life teach us? How does his life still speak today?

Embracing the Caterpillar: Integrating as a Homeschooled Adult
Being homeschooled “all the way through” in today’s world makes you distinct. While every Christian has to learn how to “be in the world but not of”, sometimes as a homeschool alumni, it’s hard to know which world it is that you inhabit. “Homeschool lifer” Danielle shares which unique bumps in the road she's faced, what has helped make her transition to “adulthood” easier for her & her family, and how her homeschooled identity helps her navigate in life.

Mom, Don't Make Me Think - Just Tell Me The Answer
As a teacher, it's so easy to give the answer, isn't it? Oh, that's right... you don't do that. How long do you allow a child to think before you start helping them? Sometimes we need to be quiet and let them wrestle with the problem to discover the answer. Do you know that children will learn better and remember things longer when they discover the solution? The goal is to provide a way for them to learn how to solve problems. How might you go about doing this?

You’re hearing more and more about a “classical Christian education” and you’re really interested. But you say to yourself, “How am I supposed to teach my children this curriculum? I wasn’t classically trained!” But that's the beauty of it. With the right curriculum you have the opportunity to give your students what you didn't receive - a truly classical education.

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.

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.
