Everything I Learned About Dating and Relationships I Learned From…

Wait!  Prince Charming wasn’t perfect?  Between the fairy tales girls grow up believing and the overly sexualized and dramatized television shows and movies of today, no wonder their idea of dating is messed up.  This workshop will help expel the myths associated with believing in the “fairy tale”, and the danger of idolatrous dating.  We’ll identify the patterns of disrespect and destruction played out in so many of the relationships on the screen.  Young women need to see themselves for who they truly are in God’s eyes and understand why they are worthy of respect.

Audience:  Teen, Tween, and Young Adult Women

In this workshop attendees will learn:

  1. What fairy tales and overly dramatized relationships teach us about dating.
  2. The dangers of idolatrous dating.
  3. The importance of giving and receiving respect.
  4. Who I am in God’s eyes.

 

But Your Temper’s Just as Bad as Mine is

This workshop is aimed at today’s young men that are flooded with images of violence.  In today’s culture, aggression is often rewarded and respected while humiliating others is tolerated. Young men in sports are further encouraged to “win at all costs”, teaching them that compassion and empathy are a weakness.  With great power comes great responsibility, and this responsibility begins with truly understanding God’s design.  From there, they can learn how to accept responsibility and hold each other accountable for their actions.

Audience:  Teen, Tween, and Young Adult Men

In this workshop attendees will learn:

  1. What constitutes abuse?
  2. Violence ≠ Strength
  3. The importance of giving and receiving respect.
  4. What can I do about it?
