“Cultivate.” The Gathering.

On the third Tuesday of each month I teach women in my home at an event called Cultivate. (It was formerly known as LNO – Ladies’ Night Out.) I’ve been doing this for years. We provide a meal, eat together, and then I share on a topic, followed by a few minutes of Q and A.

This month I spoke on setting priorities and goals for your family for this school year. I just completed a blog series on this topic, but you’ll want to watch this video to hear new things not shared in the blog posts. You’ll also hear my passion on this topic of intentional parenting. I pray God uses this video (and all things I’m involved in) to impact your heart as the parent and in turn, that you invest with great diligence into the hearts of your family members in ways that impact your home. You can see photos from this month’s Cultivate at the bottom of this blog post.

My prayer is that you become intentional to live according to priorities and seek Him for your custom-made plan for your family.

“Cultivate.” The Video.

Each Cultivate is videotaped. (Thanks Grant). Click here to watch this month’s Cultivate:Prioritizing Your School Year.  This is for everyone, not just for parents, and not just for those with school-aged kids. And…don’t let the title fool you – the content in this video is applicable all year long.

You can watch this alone, together with your spouse, or gather together a group of neighbors or friends. Some are watching these Cultivate videos in small women’s groups. May God’s name be glorified. You can watch this video below. This video and others are posted on my  Videos Page.

Here are some photos from this month’s Cultivate. What a sweet group of women.









If you’re in the local area and want to come, we’d love to have you join us.

I really hope you’ll watch it, be encouraged and challenged by it, and pass it on to your group of friends of Facebook, at your church, in your neighborhood, the parents of your kids’ friends from ball, ballet, school, and anyone you think would enjoy it.

If you haven’t yet joined us on my Facebook page, click on over. I’d love for you to share your thoughts.

Share your thoughts with us. What changes have you made due to prioritizing?
