Workshops from Lisa Schmidt ( may vary by event location )
Responding Biblically to Fear, Worry, and Anxiety
Most of us know that worry is wrong, so we disguise it with different terms like, “concerned,” “troubled,” or “bothered.” Regardless of the term used, 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. In this workshop, you will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple others with the same truths.
Responding Biblically to Temptation
We all know that the Bible instructs us to flee evil desires, but how is that possible when the bait is so tempting? In this workshop, we will discuss the doctrine of sanctification, specifically as it relates to the work of the Holy Spirit coupled with our obedience to God’s commands in Scripture. We will learn how to respond biblically to temptation through the put off/put on process and also learn what it means to radically amputate sin from our lives.
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.
Responding Biblically to Guilt and Shame
Guilt is a gift from God and is designed to direct us toward Him. Unfortunately, many Christians do not respond biblically to guilt and end up repeating the same sinful habits over and over. Many times, unresolved guilt snowballs into other sins like worry, anxiety, depression, or sinful anger. In this workshop, you will learn how to respond biblically to guilt and shame and how to disciple others with the same truths.
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. Not surprisingly, we do the same thing. We blame our spouse, our children, our parents, our past, and our circumstances. Some of us even blame God. The truth is that conflict is always rooted in a spiritual problem. In this workshop, you will discover how to respond biblically to conflict and how to disciple others with the same truths.
The Titus 2 Woman: Is She Relevant for Today?
In the book of Titus, Paul instructs Titus about what to teach the older men of the church. He goes on to tell us that the older men are to then teach the younger men and the older women of the church. Then, based on what they learned from the older men, the older women are commanded to teach the younger women. So, what is it that women are supposed to teach and learn from one another? To love their husbands, love their children, and take care of their homes. Is that even relevant in our society today? Please join us for this intriguing workshop as we discover the timeless truths from God’s Word about our biblical role as women. Learn how to practically apply these truths in your own life and begin restoring biblical balance and unity in the home.
The Proverbs 31 Woman: Is She Relevant for Today?
In the book of Proverbs, we are clearly instructed in the ways of wisdom and warned about the consequences of foolishness. The book culminates with a teaching about the wise and worthy Proverbs 31 woman. Some have argued that she is too idealistic, unrealistic, or just plain annoying to read about. Is this model of biblical womanhood even relevant for today? Please join us for this intriguing workshop as we discover the timeless truths from God’s Word about our biblical responsibilities as women. Learn how to practically apply these truths in your own life and begin restoring biblical womanhood and unity in the home.
