Some very dear friends of ours are having a conference on July 10/11 in Columbus, Ohio: Christian Families at the Crossroads, and we have the privilege of helping one family attend for free! Scroll down for details on the giveaway.
The Botkins say:
Come visit our family! Our home has always been a place of fun, fellowship, discipleship and teaching, and is usually bursting at the seams. For July 10th and 11th, we’ve rented a bigger living room — the ballroom of the Hilton Columbus at Easton hotel — and we would like to invite you in and get to know you there.This intimate two-day event is designed to welcome you into our “home” and our family’s life. You will hear from all of us, and have opportunities to ask the hard questions of everyone in the family, on issues ranging from discipleship, to relationships, to the economy, to church life, to dating, to college and more.A few of the topics we’ll be covering:
- How Christian families can be triumphant in any 21st Century culture
- What does a father-led family look like?
- What children wish their parents would teach them.
- How to tell if your church might ruin your family.
- Why do churches have a hard time defining spiritual maturity?
- What weak churches need that strong churches have.
- The most dangerous sin traps for young adults.
- What is the best way for children to recognize their gifts and become all they can be?
- What to do when your children lead a double life.
- Does the Bible say anything about dating?
- What is courtship supposed to look like?
- What does a lost son, or daughter, look like?
- How to tell when your children are headed for spiritual shipwreck.
- What does a well-educated young adult look like?
- What does the Bible mean by “godly seed”?
- What is going to happen to the American economy and life in the city?
- Why Christians can have hope in the midst of economic depression and judgment.
- What the average dad can do about a weak church or a confused church.
- What does it look like when brothers and sisters love and serve one another?
- Why is it hard for girls to find the balance between flirting and shunning?
- What responsibilities do young women have toward young men? Is it possible for teenagers of the opposite sex to be “just friends”?
- Is college necessary in the 21st century?
- What should be the definition of success for the 21st Century?
- Will today’s home schoolers be more spiritually mature than their parents, or less? And does it matter?
- Why all children must make the honoring of their parents a life priority, and how it looks to honor one’s parents.
