Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Gaining Your Children's Hearts: Influencing Through Relationship
According to Proverbs 29:17, properly disciplined children are a joy and delight to their parents. Sadly, many homeschool parents discover that the authority that controlled their children when young is insufficient to influence them as teenagers. These parents lack a relationship with their children's hearts (Proverbs 23:26). Reb will help parents discover how they lose the hearts of their children and reveal to them what the Bible says they can do to gain them back.

Establishing Parental Control in the Home
Few parents today realize how peaceful parenting can be. Their homes are stressful, and many are hampered in home education because their children do not respond respectfully to their authority. Children can be trained to obey quickly and with a good attitude. This workshop will expose parents to many of their blind spots and help them establish the proper parental control necessary for successful child training and home education.

Escaping the Seduction of American Culture
In the last 50 years America has taken a moral nosedive. Since 1960 the rate of violent crimes has more than tripled, theft is up 250 percent, and illegal drug use is up 400 percent. Marriages are disintegrating, families are breaking down, and promiscuity has become so rampant that 40 percent of children are born out of wedlock and 1 of every 4 teenage girls has an STD. These trends reveal that modern Americans have a narcissistic worldview and lack self-restraint. In this session Reb exposes the parenting philosophies that caused America’s decline, to help Christian parents identify and abandon the polluted well from which they may have been drinking.

Youth Ministries and Your Child's Maturity
In all of world history, up until a century ago, teenagers were considered adults—there was no such thing as the childhood phase we call "adolescence." This workshop will examine modern culture and its influence on the slow maturing of today's young people, to help parents identify those things they do to keep their children irresponsible and self-absorbed, consequently, unprepared for adulthood. Also, drawing from history, Reb presents a plan for unlocking children's full potential for early maturity.

The Delightful Family
Most parents yearn for a peaceful home inhabited by joyful, obedient children. They want their families to relate with kindness and love, yet many find whining, complaining and conflict. However, it doesn't have to be that way. Learn to overcome the self-centered worldview that causes unhappiness and breeds quarreling. This life-changing message will challenge and inspire parents, helping them raise children ready to respond with joy and patience to life's troubles.

Balancing Love, Discipline and Rewards
Without proper biblical discipline, children can be sources of great stress, growing up lacking qualities and character traits necessary for maturity. However, many discipline-minded parents exasperate their children because they seek to motivate by punishment in situations when they should inspire by rewards. Parents who learn God's balance between warnings of negative consequences and promises of blessings will find their children to be far more capable than they ever dreamed.

Parenting Teens With the Wisdom of Solomon
Many parents apply biblical parenting principles and find it easy to rear their young children, but make the mistake of trying to use that same approach when their children reach adolescence. Such parents often rely upon sheltering and strict control, while other parents back off entirely. In this session, Reb examines Solomon's approach and shows how to make the transition from parenting children to young adults.

Solving the Crisis in Homeschooling
Multitudes of homeschool parents around the country, including leaders, have graduated their first batch of kids, only to watch their graduates go wayward. Many were model homeschoolers while growing up, but sometime after their 18th birthday, they began to reveal that they didn't hold to their parents' values. In this session, Reb exposes seven blind spots in parenting that contribute to the breakdown of relationship between parents and children.

Dealing with Anger
Every parent desires a peaceful home inhabited by pleasant, joyful children. Unfortunately, both parents and children can contribute to family turmoil with their anger. There are various causes for bitterness, rage, and anger, and fortunately the Bible offers solid help to resolve every root cause. In this session Reb examines the various core causes of anger and helps session attendees discover God's means for healing and simple paths of repentance.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Reb Bradley and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
