Ginger Hubbard
Real Life. Real Faith.
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.

Stop Window Shopping for a Better Life - Letting Go of Mental Clutter
Our lives are saturated with information these days. Often we find ourselves scrolling through the Internet endlessly and we forget what we are even searching for. It's like we are always looking for a better life out there, and forgetting to live the one in front of us. Our minds are becoming as cluttered as our homes. It's time to focus and weed out the stuff that is hindering our day, our homeschools, and our minds. Phil. 4:8 is a great place to start filtering what we allow into our minds.

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.

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.

Beginning With the End in Mind
Confusion, discouragement and depression seem to be a way of life for many mothers. Life seems overwhelming and complicated. It is a maze of decisions and opportunities. Often discouragement comes from feeling lost along the journey of life. By beginning with what God considers to be the two most important priorities and planning our lives by beginning with that end in mind, life becomes less complicated and our paths become more clear. Learn how to simplify your decisions and your lives by God's guiding priorities.

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.

The use of primary sources allows students to see history through the eyes of their ancestors and, in turn, make their own judgments.

How to Simplify Your Homeschooling
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.

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.

You cannot compete with all of the many kinds of fun that are available today. You can do what entertainment cannot do, which is to give the student the satisfaction of learning and accomplishment.
