Teaching Your Children to Start Their Own Business How to Start Your Own Business for Families & Teens

God has set us free, not to serve ourselves, but to serve Him. Part of that freedom is having a choice in what we do for a living. Even though your children may eventually work for someone else, having the skills to start their own business ensures that they can choose from a position of strength – not having to take a career that an unbelieving culture hands them. Drawing from her 20 years of self-employment with her husband, Stephen Beck, Kerry share hard-won knowledge on how to start and maintain a family-run business. She will discuss the pros and cons of having your own business, the economics and the headaches. Above all, she will encourage you to seek to please our God in whatever situation He has called you and your children.

I’ve know Kerry Beck for a few years now through the Chamber and BNI. She is truly an inspirational entrepreneur and woman. There are only a few other people I believe “get it” when it comes to doing business with others and Kerry is one of those. She treats her clients with respect and kindness the same way she treats her children or strangers. Her Lunch and Learn about Appreciation Marketing reminds us that appreciating our clients should be a top priority just as hiring a CPA or developing a marketing plan. We learned in her talk to kindness is power. Thanks Kerry for the reminder! Warmly, Glenda DripDropCreative.com

Workshops Stephen Can Offer You A Father’s Stew: Biblical Integration of Family, Work, Ministry A Father's Stew Biblical Integration of Family, Work, Ministry

In an age where fathers are separated from their families for most of the day, how can we fulfill the biblical mandate to train our children when “you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up” (Deuteronomy 6)? Given our current culture, is it possible to integrate family, work and ministry in a biblical manner? What is God’s provision for raising godly children and what are our responsibilities? Come hear God’s vision for fathers as we are challenged from the Scripture to balance the areas of family, work and ministry and to blend these three ingredients to form a godly stew, a sweet smelling aroma to God.

Are you teaching them about finances and debt before they find themselves neck-deep in student loans, a mortgage and a $15,000 credit card debt? Come hear the biblical view of finances and debt – and how we can effectively teach this to our children.

Importance of Teaching Life Skills To Your Children

In the Apostle Paul’s day, every Rabbi was required to learn a skill in addition to his rigorous religious training. Unfortunately, our culture has forgotten the value of possessing life skills. Many in the homeschool community are waking up to the fact that we are sending our sons and daughters into the world with very few “hands-on” skills.

  • Do your children know how to start a business?
  • Are you teaching them entrepreneurial skills?
  • In today’s uncertain economic times, it is important to recession-proof your children.
  • Do they possess skills that meet everyday needs – skills they could fall back on when hard times hit?
  • Skills they could use to get out of the 9-5 rat race?

Come hear Steve Beck, director of Life Skills Camps and owner of Curriculum Connection, encourage homeschool parents from the Scriptures to disciple their children through the agency of work and give their children the tools to serve God in whatever situation He decides to place them.

Winning The War For Our Culture

Psalm 112 describes a man whose descendents will be mighty on the earth.

How do we teach our children to one day, rule and reign for their God and King, Jesus Christ? How do we train them to boldly impact the society around them instead of the other way around?

Pointed, yet humorous, Stephen Beck discusses issues such as Dad’s leadership, family devotions, the importance of homeschooling, finances and avoiding debt. Learn the essentials your children must know and the entanglements they must avoid to carry out their God-given commission – the toppling of ungodly cultures and the discipleship of the nations! Making Biblical Decisions Ranger Press

Making Biblical Decisions In Your Homeschool: Identifying and Implementing God’s Priorities

You can tell the maturity of a believer by the decisions he makes.

Why do Christians make such poor decisions? Can we ensure that our decisions are pleasing to God and not merely based on our feelings, circumstances or other’s opinions? How can we know God’s will for our lives?

Come hear a challenging message on how we should make everyday decisions – ones we are sure will please our Lord and Master!

Un-Revisionist History

Can you really believe what the history books tell you about the Civil War? How does the truth still affect us today. Come hear how the war to end slavery ended up costing all Americans, black and white, their freedom. We all want to rule and reign for Christ, but after 140 years of slavery, will we know how to lead when we win the war for our culture?

Dads And The Big Picture Of Education

Throughout all of Scripture, there is a recurring theme – God’s people are to carve godly communities out of the howling wilderness.

  • How do we build godly communities that impact and eventually overturn the culture?
  • Are we educating our kids towards this end?
  • What will it take, education wise, to accomplish this goal?
  • What is the responsibility of dad in all of this?

These and many other questions will be answered as we look at the big picture behind our children’s education. Come here Stephen Beck discuss the obstacles to avoid and the vision necessary to win the culture for Christ!
