Most of how we live for Christ is “as you go." However, we need to build in regular rhythms of pausing that allow us to draw closer to God and fuel us in the “as you go” - things like gathering to worship, meeting in LifeGroups, and time alone with God at the Table for Two. In addition, there are certain times when we want to pause to be further equipped in certain areas of the “as you go." These are areas that meet a very tangible need for many people and give us an opportunity to show how the gospel addresses these everyday issues.
Our hope at 121 is to offer opportunities that meet very tangible needs as well as show how the gospel addresses everyday issues. To accomplish this, each semester we will rotate opportunities to pause and be equipped in the following areas:

Parenting with Love and Logic
Parenting is hard.
We often get frustrated at the behavior and choices of our kids. How can we teach our kids to make good decisions and take responsibility, while building relationships and avoiding power struggles?
How do we deal with fits, from toddler-sized to teenage-sized?
This workshop is for parents with kids from birth to teenagers. We will look at how to use limits and logical consequences that enable kids to learn from their mistakes, taking us as parents out of the boxing ring.
We will cover a variety of topics:
Session 1 // Arguing and power struggles
Session 2 // Taking responsibility for decisions
Session 3 // Loving limits
Session 4 // Teaching kids to solve their own problems
Session 5 // Teaching accountability
Session 6 // Dealing with anger
Come join us as we navigate the parenting waters with Love and Logic.
