Top Ten List: The Advantages of a Virtual Event

I’m so excited about my virtual speaking event tomorrow with Mommy Jammies Night. You’ll find complete instructions HERE for how to join us and listen in. I’ll be presenting a talk on middle schoolers with some great tips for parents, and you can listen in and even ask questions all from the privacy of your home, or Starbucks, or wherever you want to go with your laptop! This is a no-fuss event, friends, unlike all the packing and preparing that I normally do when I go to speak at a homeschool convention. In fact, I was able to think of so many advantages, I came up with a top ten list!

Things I don’t have to worry about for Tuesday night:

10. Getting directions to the event, paying for gas and parking my humongous van (BIG savings!). You don’t either! This event is totally FREE!

9. Setting up my booth. If you want to purchase any of my resource, just click on the items you see here on my website, or head over to Amazon.

8. Getting my roots done (I really should have last week…)

7. What to wear. The dress code for Mommy Jammies Night is pajamas! So come in whatever you want to lounge in. And don’t feel like you have to go out and get new ones. 😉

6. The person in front of me going over the time limit for their session. This happens sometimes at homeschooling conventions because everyone has very important information to share…but we should start right on time for Mommy Jammies!

5. Forgetting my flash drive and having to race back to the convention hall to get it. Nope, I’ve got everything I need right here at my desk.

4. Having enough seats for everyone.

3. People in the audience looking at me funny. (If you do, it’s okay–I’ll never know!)

2. My feet hurting at the end of my talk.

1. And definitely, I won’t have to worry about my van exploding on the way down.

Guest Post Today on Faithful Provisions: A Bible Verse for Christmas

I’m so excited today to be guest posting on my friend Kelly Hancock’s blog, Faithful Provisions. I’m sharing my favorite Christmas Bible verse for this year, and it’s not a traditional Scripture that you might immediately think about when it comes to a verse for your annual Christmas card–but I think you’ll see why I’m favoring this verse this year. Head over to Faithful Provisions and take a look HERE…

Pure In Heart is Coming to Cincinnati!

There is a tremendous need for laying a biblical foundation of purity in the hearts of our young girls. They need to hear it from us, as parents and church leaders, before they hear what the world has to say about purity.

That’s why the Pure In Heart Conference is geared for moms/grandmoms/mentors and girls ages 7 to 12. We talk to the girls about specific cultural lies that will sneak up and grab them by the throat–and for the older girls, especially, they’ve heard those lies already, and they’ve bought into them. We go in like Nehemiah and begin re-building the wall of God-centered thinking, re-claiming those tender hearts for the Lover of their souls, Christ Jesus!

We have a lot of fun with the girls, just talking about the fact that love, real love, comes from a pure heart (a heart that is undivided, sold out to Jesus), a clear conscience (living as unto Him, with a focused effort on positive, healthy relationships with friends and siblings), and a sincere faith (a faith that really looks like love in action!)

While the girls are in their break-out sessions, mothers and mentors are getting some girl talk of their own, with powerful speakers who don’t mince words when it comes to getting over a broken past in order to present your daughter with an intact future. They talk about the hard stuff:

forgiving yourself
being determined to stand up against a raging, sin-sick culture, and
receiving the true worth and value that Christ offers.

And that’s why, everywhere the conference has been held, it has sold out–with literally hundreds left on a waiting list. We’re coming to First Baptist Church of Glen Este, in Batavia, Ohio (by Cincinnati) in April.
What would it take to get you and your daughter there?
What mountains must be moved for you to attend?
Consider yourself most cordially invited! I would love to see you there!
