Create a Framework of Values for Lasting Family Connections

Best selling author Terri Brady  (Letters to Lindsey ) cleverly manages to transfer the extraordinary life lessons God has taught her straight into listeners’ hearts, where inspiration and transformation take place. 

Come join us for a fun and informative event.

Her workshops:
The Potential in Your Family
“Plant, cultivate, reap.” Or “Dream, struggle, victory.” Over and over in stories of lives we see a pattern to success, but have we ever applied it to parenthood?! As opposed to thinking our children are clay we can mold, my husband and I envision that we have been given an amazing gift of seeds (our children) and we hope to create the garden with proper soil and watering that they may grow to their highest potential.  That “potential” is determined by what we define as valuable. “Show me your laws, and I’ll show you your God,” says Erwin Lutzer. I would add, “Show me your calendar and I will show you your values.” Let’s define what is “valuable” in your family and plant the right seeds, in the right environment.

Decrease… to Increase
Kindergarchy, as termed by Kevin DeYoung, could probably be best defined as over-parenting, and I dance with it daily. I want what’s best for my kids. I don’t take lightly the responsibility of raising them, but sometimes my attempts at “better” have only left me flustered and frustrated - not the kind of mom I want to be for my children.  Can what we do for our children take us further from our children? How can we live out the values we want to see our children living? What’s the best cure for the disease of “Kindergarchy” so our family values are actually, well… valuable? Join me as we get right things in the right places and take the antidote for kindergarchy for good. Decrease Kindergarchy (and more) to increase family’s value.
Her book was recently released (July 2018) as an audio book.
