Our kids are growing up in a different world. Like the time…
…When you were trying to decide which can of tomatoes to grab at the grocery store, you looked up and caught your 7 year old with his eyes wide staring at a gay couple across the aisle holding hands.
…Your 13-year-old walked in while you were watching the news. OF COURSE, it was when the story came on about the transgender girl who won the local track competition. You can tell by the look on your daughter’s face, she’s got questions…and you’re not quite sure how to explain this one.
…You wince a little when your 10-year-old announces one of the characters on her favorite tween show says they’re gay. “What does ‘gay’ mean, Mom?”
…Your son was reading through Genesis and got to the story about Sodom and Gomorrah. Groan…how are you going to explain this one?
Sure, you could put your head in the sand…
You could shuffle your kids out of the room as quickly as possible when the news comes on.
You could ONLY let them read Jane Austen and The Chronicles of Narnia (on repeat), and forbid anything written after 1980.
You could block emojis, cover their eyes in the checkout isle, and try to keep them inside their fragile Christian-world bubble until they’re 18…
Or you can use uncomfortable situations to have meaningful conversations with your kids.
We believe you can give your kids solid answers in a fluid world.
But here’s the deal: if we want our kids to be in the world but not of the world, we can’t be afraid to tackle tough topics with them.
We need to teach our kids how to love their LGBT neighbors well—while still honoring what God says about sexuality.
In this training you’ll learn…
- 5-step process for breaking the ice with your kids (that won’t leave you feeling awkward or embarassed).
- Why the wait-until-they-ask-about-it approach isn’t always best, and the vital truths your kids need to hear while they’re still young.
- The 3 common misconceptions kids (and parents) have about same-sex attraction and what the Bible really says.
- A practical guide for what to say and when—plus a detailed cheat sheet with all your talking points.
Join us for this live training event and learn how to talk to your kids about LGBTQ issues!
“Preparing Christian Kids for an LGBT World” training will be held on Monday, March 19th at 9 PM EST
When you sign up for this event you’ll be able to…
• Attend the training live (bring your spouse!) and get all your questions answered on this tough topic.
• Access the the recording any time to view at your convenience and watch again later.
• Download the Listening Guide to use the day of the event and an Action Guide that will give you ready-to-go talking points you can use with your kids based on their age and maturity.
When you have a plan for tackling “tough topics” (like LGBTQ) before they arise, you don’t have to worry when your kids step outside their “safe” Christian bubble.
They’ll already be armed with the Truth of God’s word and the character of Christ.
I was afraid there might not be the practical ideas I was looking for…
The training was packed full of practical AND biblical advice! It was well worth the cost for the great instruction, ideas, and encouragement. Nothing but thoughtful and biblical instruction comes from Luke and Trisha.Caryn G.
What happens when I register?
After you click the button to register you’ll be directed to a page where you set up your user account and enter payment information.
After that, you’ll be redirected to a page that will have a link to the live event (don’t worry if you lose the link; you’ll also get an email reminder). This is the same page you’ll be able to come back to later to access the recording along with your downloadable resources.
What if I can't make the live event?
If you’re not able to attend live, you’ll be able to watch the recording on your own schedule. But we encourage you to try to attend live so you can ask questions and get answers.
When is the last day to register?
Monday, March 19th at 9pm EST is when the event begins, so that’s when the doors will close. But don’t procrastinate because you want to be sure to get the opportunity to print out your Listening Guide before we begin!
Is this for parents of kids who are asking questions already or for parents who want to bring up the subject?
Both. Of course, if your kids are asking questions, it’s good to give them solid answers. But even if kids aren’t asking questions yet, it’’s good for parents to take a proactive approach—bringing up subjects in an age-appropriate manner. That’s part of what we’ll cover in the training: we want you to have confidence about what to say, when.
The training was fantastic!
The best part was it was very practical, with concrete ideas and hands-on resources provided as part of the session. You guys were great and I am so appreciative of being able to participate. Thank you!Debbie H.
