After a successful tour with Focus on the Family as a guest speaker for their Canadian tour, I will be speaking at 15 cities over the next 15 months and hopefully have a chance to meet you. The title of the events is “Turbulence Ahead….Parenting Teens Through the Bumpy Years” and will begin this month. Our plan is “5 in ‘o9 and 10 in ’10 (5 events in 2009 and 10 in 2010).
These events will vary in design but basically be an opportunity to have a two hour speaking schedule followed by a 4 hour workshop. All events will follow a Friday and/or Saturday schedule. We’re excited, and hope you’ll make plans to attend. Here’s information on our upcoming venues.

We’ll send out more information about each of the venues in following newsletters. We’re excited about coming to your city and we’ll let you know about the 2010 schedule soon!
The night prior to each of these events, we’ll be having a fund-raising and informative dinner should you like to come and find out more about all the various ways we’re reaching out to families across this country. Between radio, publishing, writing articles, running a residential program for teens. leading retreats, and speaking, I keep pretty busy. I’d like to tell you about all that we do, in hopes that you’ll become a part of our ministry to teens and families. If you’d like to attend one of these events, let us know, and we’ll make arrangements for you to attend.
Our first dinner is going to be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Thursday night, September 24th at the Tulsa Country Club. It’s just a couple of weeks away, so let me know if you’d like to join us.
And if you’re going to be in Longview, Texas on December 9th, please join us the night before our Turbulence Ahead event at a Cowboy Christmas event with Michael Martin Murphey. This event will be held at the Belcher Center at LeTourneau University.
Whew! Sounds busy doesn’t it? Well it is. But well worth all the effort if we get to help more and more families. I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events. And if you’d like to see us come to your city, let us know. We need people in each city to help make all our events happen. God Bless!
