David Thomas to present "Wild Things"
“Why can’t he focus? Why is he always moving?”
“He won’t talk. I can tell he’s struggling, but he won’t open up. Help!”
“How can I help my son experience more success in school?”
“He was so tender when he was young, and now he seems so angry.”
“Is this normal for a boy his age?”
These are questions, declarations and some of the most common cries for help I hear every day in my counseling office. They represent the playful, puzzling, passion-filled, sometimes exhausting, fascinating and mysterious journey of raising boys.
Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys helps parents, grandparents, and educators understand and explore the hearts, minds and ways of boys and the vital role we play along his journey to manhood. We will look at the different stages of his development and define what he needs from us in each of those stages.
This class is packed full of practical suggestions for how to parent, teach and discipline more in tandem with the way he is designed rather than in opposition to it. Come enjoy some fresh insight and much-needed encouragement on the road to raising boys, from birth through adolescence.
NOTHING LESS THAN A WHOLE BIBLE CAN MAKE A WHOLE CHRISTIAN.

Melissa Trevathan, David Thomas, and Sissy Goff present "Are My Kids on Track?"
From birth to adulthood, our children's physical and intellectual development is carefully tracked and charted. But what about their hearts? After all, how our children develop emotionally, socially, and spiritually will determine who they become as husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, friends and co-workers.
Are My Kids on Track? helps you identify and measure emotional, social, and spiritual milestones in your children's lives. Moreover, you will discover practical ways to guide your kids through any stumbling blocks they might encounter and help them reach the appropriate landmarks. Along the way, David, Sissy and Melissa pinpoint the different ways boys and girls develop, so you can help your child flourish in his or her own way.
Filled with decades of experience from three practicing counselors, this seminar will provide you with valuable, practical and relatable information to make sure your child is growing not just in body, but in heart. Join us for a time to be equipped in truth, encouraged in love...and to laugh at least a little along the way.
