This workshop will identify the lessons learned from successes and failures of leadership. To become a leader in today’s society is a constant challenge. Many people desire to become leaders but are not prepared for the work required to be a leader. Many current leaders experience burnout because of the high expectations of leadership. Dr. Saundra Wall Williams will give critical lessons learned from her successes and failures as an executive in higher education. She will also give strategies on how to overcome the failures and how to move forward during the successes.

If you are feeling discouraged, come and be renewed in five crucial areas of your homeschooling adventure.

Relational wisdom is your ability to discern emotions and interests in yourself and in others, to interpret them in the light of God’s Word and to use this insight to manage your responses and relationships constructively. In this life-changing message, Ken Sande will describe the biblical basis for relational wisdom and show how these skills can enable you to experience closer relationships and less conflict at home, at church and in the workplace, as well as improved team-building, better job performance and a more credible witness for Christ.

Practically Speaking: Principles for Living a Biblical Christian Worldview

This workshop is designed for those who believe having a Christian worldview is important but may be wondering how to actually walk out that worldview in everyday life. By delving into the nuts and bolts of the personal aspects of living daily in contemporary America and by examining how biblical principles are actually applied to life experiences, parents will be equipped and children can be trained in the concepts and principles that are foundational to successfully walking out a biblical Christian world and life view.
