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.

40 Ways to Be Present in Your Child's Day
In the midst of a busy day it's easy for mamas to think of our children as “tasks” rather than as “hearts” we need to connect with. We struggle with putting our kids before our to-do lists and school schedules. After all, we can mark things off our to-do lists. Kids are never "done."It hurts my heart to realize what my kids see and experience on some days: a busy, distracted mom. Tricia Goyer shares how to be present in your child's day.

Paradise Regained amid a Rapidly Degenerating Culture
God originally created the universe as a perfect paradise for mankind—but that’s not the world we see today. Instead, identity crisis, wrecked homes, racism, rapidly rising suicide rates, hate-filled Jihadists, financial uncertainty, distrust, sex trafficking, and more injustices surround us. In Romans 1, Paul wrote about these unthinkable depravities found in a rapidly declining culture. So what happened to Paradise? What changed? Discover what have we LOST, and how it can be FOUND!

Analogies for All of Us
Analogies do not exist for the sake of standardized tests or IQ exams. Analogies nurture all three language arts of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Learning to read and to complete analogies moves the student towards thinking more clearly, recognizing relationships, and organizing her thoughts regarding the world around her.

Everyone has dreams - you, your spouse, and your children, but for every dreamer a dream killer lurks in the shadows. They're the ones who constantly remind you why you shouldn't homeschool, have more children, be a stay-at-home mom, start a new business, or take that step of faith God’s telling you to take. Dream killers grew up with you. They live in your house and sometimes they even...are you.

The say "what you don't know won't hurt you", but what you know that just isn't so can really get you in trouble.In this session we'll not only take a brief look at the nation's general lack of Constitutional knowledge, but at three things almost every American knows to be true that just aren't. Join me for an eye opening, as possibly funny, look at what you may know that just isn't so.

Reset for Parents
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.

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.

What Do You Tell Your Children When They Question the Reality of God?!
This stirring message by Eric Hovind takes you on a unique journey into the reality of God and what He expects. After being raised in a Christian home, attending Christian school and Bible college — it happened. God did not answer prayer like Eric thought He would. Eric began questioning everything and discovered that he really didn’t even know God. That realization radically changed his life as he began to know the true God of the Bible. Be inspired wherever you are on your God Quest!A powerful journey into the reality of God and what He expects from Eric’s own testimony.

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.

Today's mothers are living in challenging times. We're facing things that our mothers could never have imagined. From Internet predators to the rise of domestic terrorism to the discovery GMO's, BPA's, and STD's, our lives are vastly different than the generation before us. Many moms are struggling with fear of the future, worrying about raising children in today's culture, but God says loud and clear, "Do not be afraid! Be strong and courageous!"

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.

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.
