Simply Living for Him
Bible Based Homeschooling: Building a Firm Foundation
I have often said that I don't care if my children know all the math and science in the world. If they don't know God, then I haven't done my job. What good is it to acquire knowledge without first having godly wisdom? What does it matter to be successful in the world's eyes, but not God's?

Lisa Schmidt
ACBC Certified Biblical Counselor
Responding Biblically to Anger
Anger is a God given emotion that we all experience from time to time. The problem is that our human natures have the tendency to be angry in a sinful way. Anger may characterize how we respond to certain triggers, but anger itself doesn’t control us, the evil desires within us do. We were created in the image of God with the capacity to be angry in a righteous way. You will discover how to respond biblically to anger and also learn how to disciple others with the same truths.

A person with these labels does not need coping or compensating skills. These are all symptoms of neurological disorganization. Don't live with them....eliminate them!

How to Foster Sibling Relationships (Even If Your Family Isn’t Perfect)

It’s impossible to put two people in the same place without at least occasional friction, but that doesn’t mean you must give in to the world’s combative view on siblings. God has a beautiful plan for this treasured relationship, and fostering it isn’t quite as difficult as you might think.

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.

Raise Them Up, Don’t Crush Them Down (formerly The Strong-Willed Parent)
Children need to hear the beating of our hearts not the beating of our voices. Rules can change behavior, but they can’t change the heart. Discipline is needed for disobedience, but not without mercy. As each day begins with compassion, children will feel safe to admit their faults and seek help from those they love. It is love, not fear, and grace, not law, which redeems. Join Mark as he shares a true story and unforgettable lesson that you don’t become a shepherd just because you own sheep.

Teaching the Child You Have (not the child you want them to be)
We all walk into homeschooling with some sort of preconceived notions, and for most of us... we are in for a rude awakening. Our first year we buy books based on what we like and we plan our days based on our schedules, without taking into account the complete curveball that is our child. How do they learn ?What is their rhythm and routine? What are their interests? These kinds of questions can have a huge impact and adding more kids into the mix can make it difficult to find what will work.

Stop Trying to Do Too Much! Simplify What & How You're Teaching!
Homeschool families tend to bite off more than they can chew when it comes to curriculum choices. We fall in love with all the "shiny and fun" curriculum without coming up with a game plan for how to implement it all. Often times, we need to simplify what we are doing and even (gasp) ditch a little curriculum here and there. This practical workshop is filled with creative ideas on how to supplement what you are already doing and easily plan out a simpler homeschool year.

The arts are exceptionally influential on your child's worldview and learning how they work, integrate, influence, and infiltrate the mind and heart of your child is critical to equipping them to be in the world but not of the world. Non-involvement in the arts is not an option, but discernment is necessary.

There is one sin that most Christians could hardly identify—let alone define, and it is the catalyst for all these sins...and it’s not unbelief.

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.

Responding Biblically to Fear, Worry, and Anxiety
Most of us disguise worry with different terms like, “concerned,” “troubled,” or “bothered.” 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. You will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple others with the same truths.

You Are Not a Cosmic Accident
The logical conclusion of evolution's message is that each of us is nothing more than a cosmic accident. The truth is: God created the universe (Genesis 1:1) and He created this world to be inhabited (Isaiah 45:18). He populated this world with people who are "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14); and more than that, we are His workmanship, His craftmanship, created for a purpose.
