Homeschool: No Filter
Homeschooling life isn’t always an aesthetically pleasing photo spread. Sometimes it’s messy. Sometimes we struggle. Often we struggle in silence, afraid to admit our sin, our mishaps, our battles. It’s time for us to stop living behind a filter and start walking as true sisters in Christ. Because when we share our true struggles, we bring the darkness into Light and the best filter is a life lived in the Light of Jesus! Learn how to walk alongside each other on this homeschooling journey!

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.

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.

Lamplighter Ministries International
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.

American’s Greatest Sin—It’s Not What You Think
What is our nation’s greatest sin? Is it the horror of abortion, adultery, homosexuality, pornography, fornication, or blasphemy? You may be surprised that it’s none of these things. 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.

Faith is for Weak People—The Top Ten Reasons not to Believe in God
What do you say if your son or daughter, your nephew, or the neighbor that you’ve been taking to church suddenly says to you that there’s no evidence for God, that Christianity is just blind faith, has caused more wars than anything in history, and that endless suffering proves that God doesn’t exist?

How to Foster Sibling Relationships (Even If Your Family Isn’t Perfect)
Do you feel like your kids are always fighting? I know it seems like you’re the only one, but every single parent goes through this. 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.

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.

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.

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.

After Your Epic-Fail in Parenting
Falling short as a parent is not uncommon. "We all stumble in many points," especially in words (Jam. 3:2). Most of us fail spectacularly in some parenting particular. It's been said that the definition of a godly man is one who keeps re-starting family devotions! But after the super-hero image is tarnished, what's a God-fearing parent to do? This workshop features biblical survival essentials more than success stories, precious truths to cling to rather than formulas for instant success.

Responding Biblically to Conflict
Conflict began with Adam and Eve in the Garden. Neither of them was willing to take responsibility for their own personal sin and instead blamed someone else for it.
