Proverbs says, "Train up a child in the way he should go..." But how do we know the best way? Even well-intentioned parents can miss their kids’ hearts when correcting or disciplining. It happens all the time. Instead of building the wisdom and respect they hope for, parents inadvertently build discouragement and resentment, which drives their kids to misbehave more. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Join us for a weekend “Connected Families” workshop at Christ Church. Learn a loving approach toward discipline that creates an atmosphere of safety, connection, coaching, and correction that breeds personal responsibility in your entire family.
A Connected Families Workshop Weekend March 3 and March 4
Join us for 2 different workshops with Connected Families founders Jim and Lynn Jackson WHEN: Friday, March 3 from 6:00 - 8:00pm and Saturday, March 4 from 9:30am - 12:30pm
Friday, March 3 is specifically designed for those who are familiar with the Connected Families framework although all are welcome. Jim and Lynn will be hosting a " 'Up close and Personal' with Connected Families founders Jim and Lynne Jackson” where Jim and Lynne will take us on a journey of their marriage and family lives through the lens of the Connected Families framework. They will help us see how the framework not only guides our parenting but our other relationships as well, our marriages in particular. No matter if you have been working hard on implementing the framework in your home or if all of it has been pushed to the side in the chaos of life, this will be an encouraging and refreshing night. Register HERE for Friday.
Saturday, March 4 will be a 3-hour Connected Families workshop that gives an overview of the Connected Families framework and puts as much of the Discipline that Connects 8-week course into 3 hours as possible. This is a great "refresher" for you as you continue the life-long journey of parenting. It is a wonderful opportunity to invite friends, especially those who might find taking an 8-week course really challenging. *Bring a friend and your attendance fee will be waived. Sign up HERE for Saturday.

In their 30 years together Jim and Lynne have learned to bring God's grace and truth to the messes of real life. Their three closely-aged kids all had straight A's before they started school: ADHD, Asthma, Allergies, and Acid reflux. Translation: A WIRED FAMILY! And both of them chose careers working with other people's kids. This unique combination of experience at home and at work led them to start Connected Families in 2002. Since then their resources have equipped thousands of parents across the globe be more peaceful, purposeful, and confident! Jim and Lynne have been featured on Focus on the Family, Desiring God, KTIS radio, Don’t Mom Alone, and numerous other radio programs and podcasts, including their own Connected Families podcast which was downloaded more than 45K times in the first 3 months. Through their travels, podcasting, books, online courses, and leadership trainings, the Connected Families team has had a profound global impact on parents across the world.
