Conference and retreat Topics

Critical Conversations – Helping our Kids Navigate a Hyper-Sexualized Culture (From 1.5 to 3 hours)

This workshop covers many of the issues addressed in The Talk(s) and covers both “what to know” and “what to do” to help our kids make wise choices. Parents leave with the tools they need to have ongoing conversations about physical changes, dating, porn, social media and God’s awesome design for sex. It is great for parents of teenagers but ideal for parents of 1st through 7th graders. Click HERE to find out more.

Guy's Night Out (1-2 hours)

Drawing from The Young Man's Guide to Awesomeness, this special event is designed to get fathers and sons talking about the essential issues of manhood. Using creative communication, videos, and examples from today's headlines, we help fathers and sons talk openly about porn, girls, and living lives of purpose.

Purposeful Parenting (3 to 6 hours)

If you're going to be successful at anything, you have to know what your goals are. This workshop helps parents align their aim with God’s big plans for their kids and to learn practical ways to bring purpose to the everyday activities of parenting.   

The Married Girl’s Guide to Great Sex (Typically 4 hours - Jenifer only)

Many of God's girls have a view of sex that has been tarnished and distorted by our world. This event provides a safe place where married women can re-capture a healthy picture of sex and discover how intimacy can bring strength and joy to their marriages. 

Basic Training for Men (Typically 4 hours - Barrett only)

Every man feels the burden of being the “spiritual leader in the home” but few have any idea what that means. We summarize God’s calling to authentic manhood and discuss how to overcome the many challenges that get in the way. Then we eat bacon. 

“Couples Night Out” Topics

Barrett and Jenifer would love to speak at your next marriage event or parenting night. They have a number of issues they can effectively address in a 60 to 90 minute time window.

Nobody stumbles into a great marriage. Recognizing these laws and putting them into practice can take any marriage from average to awesome. This is a fun and relevant talk that is encouraging to couples of all ages.

Fan the Flames
