Irresistable Parenting by Todd Wilson
A pandemic has struck homeschooling families across the country with full force. Homeschooled children of well-meaning, God-fearing parents have graduated and now hate homeschooling, their parents, and anything to do with God. Some fatalists say, “Well, that’s the ‘chance’ you take with children. You do your best and then spin the wheel.” Others say, “Obviously, there must be a flaw in our teaching model.” Still others shrug their shoulders, cross their fingers, and press on. There’s a better way. Come be encouraged as Todd explains the reasons for the pandemic and gives you hope through one sure-fire way to get your children to love homeschooling, you, and everything you hold dear.
What To Do When Your Plan Doesn't Go According To Plan by Todd Wilson
We like things nice and neat, orderly, and with a predictable outcome. And while it plays out nicely on television, the honest truth is that most of the time our plans don’t ‘come together.’ Instead, our plans too often fall apart, disintegrate right before our eyes. I’ve talked to plenty of homeschooling parents who were sold a plan. They followed the plan and then later stood before me with tears in their eyes because the plan didn’t work. “We did everything they said to do,” they say. “We didn’t have TV…we homeschooled…we ate organic…we only wore dresses…we sheltered and protected…our kids played the violin…we emphasized the classics…we never missed family devotions…we emphasized purity…we birthed our children at home…we had a home business” and the list goes on and on. They feel betrayed, angry, and lost. I have to admit that I inwardly wondered what they had done wrong. Now I have learned that sometimes our plans don’t come together because God has a DIFFERENT PLAN.
Choose the Hard Things by Todd Wilson
Homeschooling is hard, parenting is hard, and marriage…well, that’s way hard. And that’s OK and even normal. Trouble is we don’t like hard. We want easy, fast, and cheap, and at the same time we want successful results. But the truth is that good things are hard and hard things are good, and they go hand in hand. Sadly, most people don’t ever experience the good because they can’t handle the hard. They put the hard thing off, hoping it will get easier, or they avoid it all together, and all they end up with is a pile of regrets. Here’s the good news: you can handle the hard. In fact, if you’re faced with two choices, pick ‘HARD.’ During this hour, you’ll laugh with Todd as he shares how to embrace the hardness while keeping your eye on the joy and how to experience God’s best for you.
Raising Dangerous Sons in a Safe and Mediocre World by Todd Wilson
Let’s face it! Most men today are yellow-bellied, lily-livered weenies. They may wear tall Stetsons, drive fast cars, bungee jump from bridges, collect souped-up power tools, and carry big black Bibles, but they’re weenies. They flex their biceps and proclaim their faith, but when the economy collapses, the newest pandemic hits the scene, a family crisis arises, or the going gets tough, they play it safe. Truth is: God wants your sons to leave the heavily-populated, safe waters and live dangerously. He wants your sons to trust dangerously, work dangerously, and love dangerously. But that doesn’t come naturally. Everyone around them, from the talking heads in the media to pastors in the pulpit, keeps repeating, “Play it safe.” Here’s a secret: Dangerous living leads to joy, family happiness, and real success while safe living results in worry, family failure, and heartache. So join Todd as he encourages you and your sons to GET DANGEROUS.
