  • Intentional Parenting
    First Baptist Church
    7-8:30 pm

    Parents are faced with many choices as we navigate life with our children. While there are many paths to parenting, have you chosen foundational principles to guide your decisions and strategies? Sanford and Kristi look forward to sharing their intentional parenting decisions and what they have learned from their experiences.

    Joe and Jenni BiggsSpeakers: Sanford and Kristi Gladding have been Davis parents for 23 years and involved in FBC’s Children’s Ministry since 2004. They enjoy mentoring college students and young adults in addition to cheering on the Giants, eating at great restaurants, and planning adventures with their three children.

  • The Illusion of Control
    First Baptist Church
    7-8:30 pm

    Do you ever feel like this parenting thing is not going the way it’s supposed to? Or like you are losing control of your kids? It was a freeing day for Kim and Scott when they realized that controlling their teenage daughters was a hopeless and unhelpful approach. Come and hear the lessons they learned through the hard knocks of parenting.

    Erica WrightSpeaker: Scott and Kim Wieking partnered in youth ministry for 18 years before transitioning to pastoral ministry with adults and families. They have worked with young people inside and outside the church – coaching, mentoring, and cheering them on into adulthood. They have three grown daughters, and a son-in-law, who they are all wild about.

  • The Art & Science of Empathy
    First Baptist Church
    7-8:30 pm

    Empathy is an essential skill for relationship and one of your most powerful parenting tools, helping you connect more deeply and authentically with your child. Join us to learn more about this innate ability we have and practice how we can strengthen and develop it – to the benefit of our children and our parenting partners!

    Julie JorgensonSpeaker: Julie Jorgenson is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who helps individuals, couples, and families with a wide range of concerns, including parenting and anxiety.
