Sanity’s in the Freezer (Melanie)

Learn how to have real meals again! Don’t worry if you have tried once-a-month cooking and didn’t like the mess. Melanie didn’t like that either! Find out how to feed your family well on less money and how to serve great dinners with minimal time in the kitchen and no stress. This workshop, popular from Ontario to California, will give beginners in the kitchen a place to start and veterans new and refreshing ideas. Great for teens, too.

Communication and Social Media in the 21st Century--Helping Our Teens Live for Christ

Our children engage the world through technology like no other generation has ever before. Computers and communication tools like email, Facebook, instant messengers, cell phones and texting can be used for good but can also be a means to draw our hearts away from the Lord. Tracy shares the pros and cons, practical tips and experience to help parents navigate this ever-growing world of social networking with their teens for God’s glory.

It’s Never Too Early

This workshop will provide practical strategies for teaching the foundational principles of relational wisdom to young children, giving them a head start on developing skills that will aid homeschooling and speed their path to maturity.

The Power of Praise with Our Children

Life and death is in the power of tongue. Deep scars can occur as a result of negative, condemning words and withholding of praise and affirmation. The goal of this talk is to ensure that our children do not grow up feeling rejection from us as parents because of bad communication. This talk uses James 3:1-10 as a model for how we use words to edify and build up rather than to tear down. The talk will explore some ways that we use our tongue to injure our children and how we can use our tongue as an instrument of blessing.
