Workshops from Dennis Gundersen ( may vary by event location )
Faithful and Flawed Fathers: Abraham and You, Dad
There are no perfect Biblical fathers. All had flaws, but some were still regarded as faithful. Abraham is called the father of all who believe, even though he's far from a model of perfection. Just like Abraham, you can be a faithful father to your children, despite the flaws. A man needs to know his calling from God, be willing to sacrifice for it, and have patient faith through trials.
Homeschooling with a Broken Spirit
We all get discouraged, burned out, even go through times of depression. What's a mom to do when such a season of life comes upon her? You're still committed to homeschooling the children - that resolve hasn't changed. But you've changed. You can live in a way that honors God even while you're depressed. And there are well-trodden pathways out of that wilderness. You just need help seeing them again. Come for the encouragement.
Courtship and Dating: So What's the Difference?
Families hear much about courtship these days, but often lack clear ideas as to the differences between a dating approach and the courtship concept. We want to spare our children the pitfalls of the modern dating tradition, but often don't know how to explain to them how courtship works! This seminar gives six easily-understood differences between the two approaches, to help any family apply the old approach in a modern era, but without arbitrary, Pharisaical rules. Dennis gives parents principles they can apply in varied households.
A Hebrew Boy's Education in the Time of Christ
Most Westerners don't understand how Hebrew families viewed the essentials of education and what a dose of freshness it might add to your day to consider the schooling the boy Jesus would have received in His times. Take a journey back to Nazareth's school and see the unique perspectives and goals which would have been included. We can learn a lot from an ancient Hebrew schoolhouse!
