Between the two of them, David Thomas and Sissy Goff have over forty years of experience counseling kids and families. They’ve written twelve books, 1 DVD curriculum, and their newest release called, “Are My Kids on Track?” Mostly, they love getting to share what they’re learning on a daily basis from their work with kids of all ages with us.   Below you can find out more about what they will be speaking on during the Parenting Summit.

Intentional Parenting

"I just don't know any more options to try in terms of discipline." "I am afraid I lost it with my son last night." "Most parenting books I read just leave me feeling really overwhelmed." Being a free parent. Parent out of love and not out of fear. Spending real time-- connected, engaged time with your son or daughter with no iphones, ipads, or ianything in between. These are a few of the ideas we talk about in this seminar. It is one born out of countless conversations we have had with parents over the years...conversations where they're wanting to talk about how to be more consistent, patient, connected, balanced, a word more intentional with their children of all ages. This seminar is our response. In it, we give specific ideas on:

  • being a consistent parent
  • being a patient parent
  • being a connected parent
  • being a balanced parent
  • and, finally, what it looks like to be free.

Regardless of their age, your children look to you to help them discover who they are. This time will help you do just that. You are growing right alongside them. Our hope is that you will leave this seminar refreshed with humor, truth and grace and more confident to parent with all of the love, mercy and intentionality with which God continues to parent you. Understanding you. Understanding your child.

Taming The Technology Monster

Technology is one of the most daunting parts of being a parent today. When do I let my child have a phone? When can they get on social media?   How much screen time is too much? What do I need to do to protect them? And what effect is all of this technology having on them, anyway? In this class, we’ll talk about these topics and more. Taming the Technology Monster will equip you with ways to stay ahead of the technological trends our children are faced with every day, as well as ways to protect, nurture and connect with your child’s heart. We’ll discover together ways you can turn technology into opportunities for good in the life of your child and family.
