Do you worry about ...

•how to equip your kids to navigate truth claims and mixed messages coming at them daily?
• your kids becoming hyper-emotional, combative tweens and teens?
• how to tackle uncomfortable topics with your kids at all ages?
• your kids rejecting Christian faith as irrelevant, uninteresting or untrue?
•how to dialogue COMPASSIONATELY with others without COMPROMISING what you believe?

Do you dream of raising kids who …

• think independently of their peers, professors and media in pursuit of TRUTH?
• can articulate their feelings and thoughts clearly and confidently with others?
• stand up for what is right even in the face of hostility?
• are comfortable talking with you about anything?
• listen thoughtfully to others and seek to understand them?
• wrestle, thoughtfully with their faith and own it for themselves?

Me, too!

That’s why I’ve created Grounded – a 6 week crash course in reason, logic and better communication for moms.
If your childhood was anything like mine…
there was probably no real discussion about the BIG QUESTIONS of life, faith, and the meaning of things. My quest for truth was met with short answers, uneasiness and sometimes anger at home. I looked for answers instead from tv, pop music, girl’s magazines, friends and other family members.

After a period of seeking meaning in “women’s rights”, dabbling in the occult and pornography addiction, God answered my cry for true direction. I came to embrace Christianity in my teens. My new passion, however, was met with defensiveness back home. I turned to my church community for continued guidance.
When a trusted couple from church shared anti-Catholic literature with me, I never thought to question it. I wouldn’t know where to start even if I had. I never learned to think philosophically or how to test information presented to me as true. I became outspokenly anti-Catholic.

But everything was about to change.

In college I was required to take a Philosophy class. My professor showed me how to pursue truth with humility and principles of right reason. He created a safe community where we could converse toward truth about anything peacefully and playfully.
Flash forward several years, and I’d be a devout Catholic teaching the art of thinking well to high school students! As I helped them discover truth for themselves in conversation with one another, I saw their confidence soar. Most days they left my class smiling and chatting passionately about that day’s topic.

Now that I’m a mother… I strive daily to instill in my son a love for truth and critical thinking. I want him to launch into the world from this strong foundation .

Do you want to create a home culture where open inquiry is encouraged?
Do you want to model for your children how to pursue truth well?

Grounded can get you there!
The course begins Monday, February 18th.

What we’ll cover…

Week 1: Does truth exist?

Is there really only “your truth” and “my truth”? Explore how we can know that there are ultimate, guiding truths and that we’re made to find them!

Week 2: Wonder

Learn why wonder is foundational to the pursuit of truth and how to rekindle it in yourself and in your home. It’s the antidote to apathy and boredom!

Week 3: Wise Use of Media & Technology

Kick intellectual laziness and gullibility to the curb as you learn how to spot spin and half-truths in the media. We’ll discuss how to harness technology and media for good and why and how to set boundaries around them with your children.

Week 4: Logic 101

Learn the basic principles of logic and how to make valid arguments. I promise not to speak over your head and to keep it fun and memorable.

Week 5: How to Spot Bad Reasoning (aka Logical Fallacies)

Get to know the most common errors people make when trying to argue a point so you won’t be duped and won’t make them yourself!

Week 6: Civil Discourse

Delve into how to connect with others in real, day-to-day conversations, how to dialogue toward truth, diffuse hot emotions, be a better listener, and show compassion without compromising what you believe.
