The Redeeming and Corrupting Power of Technology
~ Presented By Mrs. Dana Davis
Details: Our lives are thoroughly saturated with technology. Technology wakes us up, brews our first cup of coffee within seconds, notifies us of our daily appointments, and provides driving instructions right at our fingertips. Texting, tweeting, facebooking and googling are the verbs that fill our days. These devices and technologies are as normal to us as the air we breathe and the water we drink. Why do we need to pay attention to the influence of technology? How can we harness the redeeming power of technology to further the spread of the Gospel and to encourage the saints? How can we prevent the corrupting power of technology from destroying our lives and dividing our families? Join us as we learn to discern the redeeming and corrupting power of technology and identify some practical technologies that you can use to encourage those you serve.

Being Busy & Staying Balanced
~ Presented By Dr. Julie Howard

I help homeschool our oldest son and even find time to participate in church activities and find time for some my hobbies and interests. I believe God has called me to be in all of those roles. There are many verses in the Bible that point to balance, and how to appropriately prioritize our lives and service to Him. We will discuss how to prioritize and how to manage our busy lives, all while in service to God.

Parenting for Young Mothers
~ Presented By Mrs. Joy Mielke
Details: Mothers today face an incredible challenge to raise godly children in a godless culture. How can we teach our children to know and love God? It is not enough to just have our children profess Christ. How can we instill in them a passion for the things of God? This workshop is designed to give hope and practical ideas for mothers who are serious about raising godly children.
About the Speaker: Joy was raised in a Christian family where the Word of God was read daily. Strong protection measures were implemented by her parents to keep the world out of the home and to place God in the home. Joy asked the Lord to save her as a young child, but she struggled with assurance of salvation. On May 18, 1971, at the age of 12, her mother dealt with her from Revelation 3:20, and Joy received assurance of her salvation that night. Joy sensed a strong call from God to be a preacher's wife, and she spent her teen years preparing her own heart for that calling. Joy went to Pillsbury Baptist Bible College where she met her husband Marlon Mielke. Together they have served in the ministry for 33 years. The last 15 years of their ministry has been in her home church of Milltown, WI, where her husband is the pastor. Marlon and Joy have five grown sons, three wonderful daughters-in-love, and four grandsons. Parenting her children to know and love God was what mattered most to Joy when they were in the home! She continues to parent them now on her knees.
