The following are suggested topics within my scope of experience, but I am confident that God can inspire a message tailored to your audience.
For educated women finding themselves at home, be encouraged by this testimony of how God uses our experiences and wastes nothing to make us the best mom for our kids. Explore a woman’s incredible role in raising up the next generation. (Topics: Identity, Purpose, Perfectionism)
Church Kid Saved by Grace
Growing up in church doesn’t make you a Christian just as much as hanging around the beach makes you a surfer. This is my testimony of growing up a church kid, built on a firm foundation that was tested by many opportunities to turn away from God. I’ll share my strengths as well as my failure to represent Jesus in a world desperate for meaning, what preserved my faith, and how marriage is refining that faith. (Topics: Perfectionism, Grace, Christian Living, Marriage)
Exploring the issue of gratefulness and letting go of unnecessary things, obligations, relationships, & ideas that keep us from focusing on what really matters. (Topics: Decluttering, Intentionality, Distraction, Technology)
Education In & Out of the System
Public vs. private vs. homeschooling. As an educator trained in the American public system, initiator of a non-profit private start-up, and now homeschooling mama of two, I have been able to see many options for educating a child in today’s culture. This research-based topic will focus on understanding these systems to give you food for thought as you choose the best path for your family. (Topics: Education, Family Life, Parenting)
Building a Home on a Firm Foundation
How do you prepare a foundation before a structure is built? Reviewing the process of literally prepping soil, and how that correlates to the metaphorical soil of our hearts. We tend to want move-in ready lives without preparing the soil (parable of the four soils from Matt, Mark, Luke). How Christ calls the body of Christ to live as a family, emulated in these traditional, Biblical, God-ordained roles. (Topics: Marriage, Family, Spiritual Disciplines)
In an age where moving past platitudes and band-aid solutions to our most pressing family needs, Jenn speaks to both who we are today and who we want to be tomorrow. Biblically grounded theology presented in a logical method make her presentations an entertaining, educational, and exceptional resource. Her words help guide listening hearts and minds towards embracing living fully in our Fathers world.
I was truly blessed by the Titus 2 workshop. No matter how old the kids are, I can’t expect anything to be cleaned or as clean as I would like them to be. I have learned to break it down smaller into “quadrants” and that my son is a confident young man that can put his clothes away in the drawer. Every day is a learning experience for everyone. It was a true blessing to have another mothers perspective on how to get the children more involved.
