Conquering the Obstacle Course of Fostering and Adoption: Being a mom is tough. Being a foster or adoptive mom can feel like climbing a vertical wall with three kids in tow.

Bring Back Kumbaya: You’ve found the one whom your soul loves, and you’re ready to start a life together. But that “one” comes along with two more. God has called you to love and raise these children that you didn’t bear, but the child did not choose you and may not love you. It can be one-sided and heart-breaking for many years. Hear from a “Bonus Mom” about the different types of blended families, different reactions &tactics based on different age groups, how to keep the marriage alive and – most important – continuing to love like Jesus did throughout it all.
Archers, Take Your Mark! "It starts at home." We've all heard the phrase, but when it actually comes time to take action, we're paralyzed.

And how do we go about teaching a child with a 10 minute attention span what these lessons mean for their lives? This session will share some hands on techniques for discipling your young children, and how to have some fun along the way.
