In Janet's talk, The Red Cord, she shares the story of Rahab and her simple, yet incredible faith.

WHAT YOU SAY IS WHAT YOU'LL GET
Words we speak, write, think, and pray often become our destiny. Are your words based on facts, or fears from "what ifs"? Do your thoughts reflect the truths from God's Word, or does doubt shout so loud you embrace it as reality? Words are powerful. It just took three of them to change the course of Simon Peter's life. Moses' life took a u-turn when he spoke three words, "Here I am." Six words, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas," set Barabbas free as Jesus died in his place.

RISING ABOVE THE ODDS
What is your greatest excuse? What do you say to avoid doing what you need to do? Moses gave excuses to God because he felt inadequate. Peter gave excuses when he was afraid. The paralyzed man, who laid by the Sheep Gate Pool and gave excuses for thirty eight years, finally gave up. Yet, against all odds, Abraham believed, dreamed, and expected God to be faithful. And so can we. As you hear these stories and Janet's personal story, interwine with the scriptures that she clung to, you will be encouraged not to give up. You, too, can rise above the odds that face you. (45 min-3 hrs)
TAKING A STAND

Through Janet's talk you will discover what her life was like walking among two hundred preschoolers. You'll also be given tips, taking the guesswork out of choosing a preschool for your child. (30-60 min)
WORDS, WORDS, AND MORE WORDS
Deuteronomy 6:7-9 instructs parents to talk to their children. The first words our children hear upon rising and the last words they hear at the end of the day can make a tremendous impact on their lives. In Hands-on Faith: Words, Words, and More Words, parents learn how words can shape and develop their children to become all that God intended them to be.
