Parenting in 2018 is anything but simple. Schedules and commitments and possessions fill our lives to overflowing, but that isn't God's plan for families. As parents, we are called to be present with our children, help them become all that they have been created to be, and to make sure that they have a childhood. Join Marilyn Sharpe, parent, parent educator, and Mount Olivet member, to explore Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids. Intrigued about what this could mean for the children you love ... and for you? Plan to explore what it would mean to streamline your home environment, establish rituals and routines that build connection and diminish stress, schedule breaks in the torrent of doing just to be together, and scale back media, while replacing it with parental involvement. You and your child will be glad you did.

So we can plan appropriately, please register! Come enjoy hearing from a different Mount Olivet Pastor each week as together they lead us into the book of James, which encourages us as Christians to "be doers of the word, and not merely hearers" (1:22). Feeling James put too much emphasis on "good works," Martin Luther once called James a "book of straw," but later came to appreciate it. Come and learn more—and bring friends. All are welcome!
