“Train up a child in the way he should go…” You have probably heard this biblical instruction before, but what does it mean? How do you “train” your child and where should they “go”? This class answers those questions through Peggy’s new book, Getting To The Heart of Your Child . The class will discuss the value of relationship, discipline and instruction and the how-to’s of good parenting.
Peggy will present the material in a weekly class or a single format to groups wanting to improve their skills and knowledge of parenting. A national book tour is in the making so contact her to see if she will be coming to your area. For more information about the book, check it out on this website, Amazon or Barns and Noble.
We all deal with relationships and different personalities. This class goes into depth on personalities, communication and conflict resolution. The class offers practical and biblical ways to handle our relationships whether it is in a marriage, family, dating, co-workers and friends.
When the Bible tells us to “do whatever it takes to live at peace,” what does that mean? This class will talk about “peace fakers,” peace breakers”, and “peace makers” and address conflict and how to achieve reconciliation and peace. This information has been presented to churches and other organizations to help them reconcile over issues as well as helping to avoid potential conflicts through this instruction. A follow-up mediation is also available through Genesis.
