Multi-generational Topics

Many of the issues facing our culture today are multi-generational. Sexual abuse and exploitation can breed in disconnected families. It is important to strengthen critical multi-generational relationships so that when the storms of life hit, mothers, grandmothers, and other caring adults are equipped and ready to step in with biblical principles to help guide the next generation in practical, life-changing ways. Titus 2 clearly calls women to disciple the next generation, whether their own children or someone else’s. Mentoring with a discipleship perspective can change lives and transform hearts.

“You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine” – Titus 2:1

“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” – Daniel 12:3

“For the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth.” – Eph 5:9

“Trish has a way about her that is endearing to children as well as parents. God has blessed her with the amazing ability to communicate His truths in an inspiring and humorous way. My high-energy, nature-loving daughter actually sat for over an hour captivated by Tricia’s teachings on manners. Mind you, this is no small feat! I would highly recommend seeing her speak; you will leave feeling inspired & rejuvenated!”
