7:30 AM


What we need today are Christian “men” who are willing to stand on the Word of God. In this powerful, straight-forward, biblically grounded talk Carl challenges men to stand up and be the spiritual leaders Christ has called them to be. No more abdicating that responsibility to the world, the church or anybody else. Dads, you are called to educate and train your children! Carl will identify the tools being used to destroy families and then show how to overcome those attacks. The Lord’s pattern is that the man be the head of the home and be the provider, protector and priest of the family…and, raise children in the fear and admonition of the Lord!

2:00 PM

Room A: Carl Kerby, Reasons for Hope
“What About…Races”

“What you believe about where you come from will impact the way that you live your life today!” This is one of the most important talks that Carl gives today. If we truly want to solve the problem of racism there is only one way, and that is by starting with the Word of God. For too long Christians have said “Jesus” with their lips but lived their lives with a anti-biblical mindset. There is no clearer example than how many “Christians”, have in the past and are currently dealing with this issue. Here Carl will shed light from God’s Word and from real science on the truth about so-called “races”. What does ‘science’ really say about this issue? More importantly, what does God’s Word say? This is a study that is transforming lives by giving exciting answers from Genesis! Until we, Christians, can get this issue right we can never expect non-christians to deal with it appropriately.

Room B: Jamie Erickson

“The Busy Mom’s Guide to Daylight”

Tick Tock. Have you ever experienced a series of days, weeks or even months when you felt like you just could NOT get on top of all that you had to do? Have you just decided that it’s either school or dinner? Or maybe you just gave up making dinner and now everyone has matching socks again! Most moms struggle with finding a balance when it comes to staying on top of the all we need to get done.
Have you ever read 2 Corinthians 12:9? You probably have… it says, “My strength is made perfect in weakness”. Mothering reveals weakness … it’s true!

Busy mom, if you’re struggling with trying to do it all, you will enjoy hearing some of Heidi’s favorite tips for managing all that pulls us…and still finding time to fit in “other things” (like alone time with your husband!)
This is an opportunity GET SET FREE from the expectations of others, laugh out loud learn how two words: BE INTENTIONAL can make a huge difference in your ability to manage your home well. Bring a friend and leave your preconceived ideas at the door because real moms sometimes serve Cheerios for dinner!
