Presentation Titles & Descriptions

The "Bottom" Line
I've heard it said, You can spank the fool out of your child, but you cant spank wisdom into him. God has ordained two primary methods for parents to use for training their children in wisdom. They are the rod and the reproof. Ginger discusses the biblical use of the rod and examines the differences in worldly spanking versus biblical chastisement that, so often, even Christians miss. "The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child who gets his own way brings shame to his mother." - Proverbs 29:15

What Lies Beneath: Getting to the heart of anger in children
Anger is a dangerous, deadly poison that has the power to kill a relationship and it is often the common denominator for a number of behavior problems in children. Through insightful teaching and powerful drama, Ginger identifies seven ways parents may unintentionally provoke their children to anger and how they can avoid those snares to raise emotionally healthy children. "Do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord." - Ephesians 6:4

From Rags to Riches
Ginger shares her personal testimony of trading rags of regret for riches in Jesus. Through laughter and tears you'll be inspired and challenged as Ginger uncovers the treasures that await a life surrendered to Christ. From teenage rebellion to devastating poor choices to the comforting arms of a forgiving God, this evangelical message touches the hearts of Christians and non-Christians alike.

Heaven At Home
Just as Jesus is preparing a magnificent place for us in Heaven, we can prepare our homes to be a haven where energy is restored, spirits are renewed, and the best of life is lived. Create a warm and welcoming refuge in which your family can dwell and delight by learning how to establish and enjoy a peaceful home.

Reaching the Heart of Your Child
Unfortunately, there are many parents today who focus only on the outward behavior of their children. They have developed the philosophy that if they can get their children to act right that they are raising them the right way. However, there is far more to parenting than getting our children to act right. We have to get them to think right and to be motivated out of a love of virtue rather than a fear of punishment. Ginger encourages and equips parents to reach past the outward behavior of their children and pull out what lies within their hearts.

Taming the Tongue
Do you find yourself threatening, repeating your instructions, or raising your voice in an attempt to get your children to obey? Do you feel guilty because you know you should be faithfully training and instructing your children in righteousness, but youre not sure how? Are you frustrated because it seems you just can't reach the heart of your child? Ginger guides moms in searching out God's truths for how to give a biblical reproof. This presentation richly inspires and equips mothers to let faithful instruction flow from their lips!

Twinkle, Twinkle, You're a Star!
In this humorous and heart-warming presentation, Ginger uncovers obstacles that keep us from living abundant, fulfilling lives and from shining our brightest for Christ. Touching stories, spiritual insights, and practical solutions encourage women to overcome common hindrances and to "shine like stars" as children of the King.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Ginger Plowman 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.
