August 31st: Love & Respect…..Patrick Hanley

Have you ever heard of “the crazy cycle”??  Do you feel like your marriage is on it?  Patrick and I sure were up until about a year ago.  After reading Dr. Emerson Eggrichs’ book, “Love & Respect”, we were able to identify our own crazy cycle and how we were miscommunicating to each other in our marriage.  Patrick will walk us through some highlights of this book (from the guy perspective 🙂 and what we’ve learned about how to make a difference in our marriage in hopes to encourage you in your own marriage.  We truly believe God has a  plan for each marriage to be fulfilling and joyful and this perspective really made a difference for us.

Patrick and I have been married for 11 years.  We have 3 children: Madison (8), Jackson (7) and Mason (3).  Patrick has a degree is applied ministry, has been a youth pastor, church planter and now works for the family business here in Batesville at Pulskamps Flooring Plus.  He is passionate for people and seeing them connect with God’s grace and love.  We hope you’ll come out Friday to hear what he has to say about making the most out of your marriage!

August 17th: our kickoff week with Dana James!

Dana James is back ladies and we couldn’t be more excited that she is our first speaker for our 2012-2013 mom2mom year!  Dana’s heart is to connect women with God’s heart through the teaching of His Word.  Her passion is to see women know God and glorify Him through their lives.  She has spoken at conferences, retreats and events as far away as Africa and as close as her own home town.  She also teaches a women’s Sunday school class and Bible studies through her Church.

In the marketplace, Dana has provided training for businesses and industries in a variety of areas such as leadership, team building, communication, time management, customer service, and computer application software.

She has been married to her pastor for 36 years and they are the proud parents of Brandon, Nikki and Avery James (ministering in the Dominican Republic) and Ashleigh, Josh, Ella, Jackson and Anne Stegall (ministering in Indiana).  Ernie and Dana currently live in Greenwood, IN and serve Calvary Baptist Church.

We couldn’t be more excited that Dana is able to come speak to us on August 17th.  She will be speaking on “Vive la Difference!!”.  Do you ever find yourself complaining about life and/or other people?  Are you ever critical of others?  Do you ever compare yourself with other people?  She’s going to take a look at what God (The Potter) says about this, why we do it and how we can stop and live in peace!
