Join Heidi St. John as she teaches 5 ways you can get off the sidelines and onto the frontlines as you walk out your faith. Learn to engage and encourage others to do the same.

Yes, You Can Homeschool! (Tulsa, 2:00pm Saturday Oct 2)
Let's face it. Homeschooling is challenging. Sometimes it can feel like a major accomplishment just to take a shower and get the breakfast dishes cleaned up before dinner! Most homeschool moms feel the pressure of providing their children with a solid academic foundation ~ but there's so much more to homeschooling than academics, isn't there? The truth is that the greatest accomplishment of your homeschooling is to nurture your children in the ways of the One who made them.
REAL LIFE Homeschooling is about getting real when it comes to the issues that are unique to homeschooling families ~ but more important than that, it's about being reminded why we are homeschooling in the first place. It's about keeping our eyes on the goal of discipling our children. If you have been or are on the edge of homeschool burnout, if you are wondering why God has called you on this homeschooling journey, or if you just need some honest, real encouragement, this is the one homeschool workshop you can't afford to miss out on!
Have you noticed that our culture is struggling today? Political unrest. A global pandemic. Lockdowns. Mandates. Fear. Frustration.
Closed churches—wait. Closed churches?
The bold voice of the God’s redeemed is needed more today than ever before in modern history, but incredibly, that voice has been all but silenced in many areas of our nation. God has much to say about this in the Bible—because He has tasked Christians with the weighty responsibility of declaring God’s truth to the world, no matter the circumstances.
Is that happening as it should be? Is our faith speaking?
Look around you. Where are the answers to the difficult questions we are facing? Where are God's people? Here and around the world, the need for healing is great—but in the midst of one of the most spiritually challenging times in human history, God's people seem to have forgotten who they are. In a world that desperately needs Christians who will speak about their faith, we have become timid.
Jesus knew this would happen. Right after Paul exhorts us to put on the full armor of God he says this: “To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.”
History teaches us that when the Church loses its voice, culture loses its way. At Faith that Speaks, keynote speaker Heidi St. John will bring the Word of God to vibrant life as she teaches on current events and points attendees back to the only One with answers for the difficult days we are in. This “One,” of course, is Jesus.
In Psalm 107:2, the psalmist says, "Let the redeemed of the Lord... say so." At Faith That Speaks, that's exactly what we'll do: learn to "say so."
Bring your Bible, a notebook and a heart ready to be encouraged, because at Faith the Speaks, you will learn what it looks like to boldly declare who we are in Christ through time in God's Word, worship and conversation. Five sessions and a live Q & A will give you an opportunity to engage directly with Heidi and her special guests as we tackle the tough questions this generation is asking with truth and grace.
The hope we have in Jesus is the hope of the whole world: an uncomplicated reconciling gospel that proclaims one thing: the healing work of the cross is still healing today.
