Are any of you going to attend one of the Teach Them Diligently conferences this year? If you register your family early, you can save $10!
And if you attend one of the three conferences listed below, I might get to meet you!
In addition to helping folks at the Doorposts booth, I will also be giving four different workshops at all three events. Here’s a brief description of them:
- Raising Children Who Love God and His Word
Our goal as Christian parents is to make disciples of our sons and daughters. God’s Word is a key tool in our discipleship efforts, but we sometimes struggle with how to apply it, how to make it central in our homes, and how to make it relevant to our children. If we merely use Scripture to control, but not to disciple our children, we risk driving them away from the faith. In this workshop I will talk about several key practices that help make the Bible attractive and relevant to your children. My goal is to suggest simple, practical things you can do to raise up children who love God and His Word!
- Influential Parents who Mirror God’s Character
How we live as parents has a tremendous impact on our children, often more than we realize. We should be continually looking to our heavenly Father as the perfect example of a wise and loving parent. I’ll be talking about how my parents’ imperfect faithfulness profoundly influenced my life, and how you can have a positive impact on your children by reflecting the character of our heavenly Father.
- What I Would Do Differently as a Homeschool Mom
Now that our six children are all grown up, graduated, and getting married, I can see some of my mistakes more clearly. I hope you will be encouraged in your own parenting as you learn from a few of the lessons God has taught me after thirty years of parenting. My goal is to broaden your perspective, help you discover blind spots, and see how God works even to redeem our mistakes.
- Christian Courtship in the Real World
Calling romance “courtship” or suffocating it with rules does not guarantee a positive experience, as some are discovering. There is no one right “method” that ensures success and happiness, but God has established principles that we are wise to observe. As the thankful mother of five happily married children, I’ve been through five wildly different courtship scenarios. I would like to share some surprising and encouraging stories with you, with the prayer that they will help you prepare your children for romance and make courtship a positive experience for them.
You can register here and save $10 on a full family registration (if you’re going to Nashville, do it today to get the discount).
If you attend one of these conferences, please stop by Doorposts’ booth and say hello! I’d love to meet you!
Also, for those of you who live in the areas where the conferences are being held, I would love to know what you would consider one must-see attraction near the conference venue. We won’t have a car, and we won’t have much time, but it would be fun to see something!
What would you recommend?
