Summary of the Conference:
This conference is designed for parents with children of all ages who want to learn how to draw out and then speak to the heart of their children with biblical truth that is focused on the gospel and transformation for the whole family. Friday night begins by examining Parental Potholes: common missteps parents make with their children. Saturday continues with practical wisdom from the Scriptures that includes: keeping the gospel central in your parenting and biblical methods of discipline. We conclude our time with a lengthy open question and answer time. So please come with your questions, a Bible, a pen, and open hearts ready to receive from the Lord.
