The workshop will also present some initial material on developing specific lesson plans about Christ, Culture and Vocation.

Fear can paralyze; it can grip hearts, torment minds, and hinder some from parenting in God’s joy and purpose. Philippians 4:6 says, “Be anxious for nothing.” Do you fear your own inadequacies (or wonder if your homeschooling is going to mess up your kids for life)? Do you fear teenage rebellion, hormones, high school, or the future? Do you fear not pleasing others, not having finances, or not fulfilling God’s purpose? In this workshop, you’ll be encouraged by God’s faithfulness and love for you, concluding with a time of prayer

Orphans. Impurity. Poverty. There are many needs in the world and so many people who need Jesus. Becoming a beautiful, godly woman is more than being a pure and pampered princess.

As Amy Carmichael prayed, “Give me the love that leads the way, the passion that burns like fire.”
