- Learning History Through Fiction
An oxymoron joins two contradictory things together for dramatic effect, such as: “Jumbo Shrimp” or “Proud to be Humble.” Some people believe that to combine history (especially Biblical history) and fiction is an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms. Kathleen Evenhouse provides a look into the process of writing history as stories and encourages listeners to add reading history this way to their educational toolboxes. Weaving characters and stories into actual events deepens understanding and application of lessons from those who have gone before.
- Disable the Label: The Power of Respect
All of us live with labels that we believe are the truth about ourselves: shy, less than, unattractive, loser, awkward, born bad, clueless, misunderstood, dummy, or “one fry short of a happy meal.” It doesn’t matter where the label comes from: your childhood nickname, your social or economic status, your education or lack of it, your past mistakes, your race, your membership status, or your own self-label. If you believe the label to be true, it affects your thoughts, words, and actions. This in turn affects all those around you. Disable the worldly labels and accept the truth of God’s label for you.
- Doodling the Bible: Breathing in God’s Words—Breathing Out His Message
This participatory session aids and encourages bringing God’s words into ourselves and pouring them out again through doodling. This is not an art lesson, but a process we can use to gain understanding and identify what God has for each one of us today.)
- God Chooses (Im)Perfect People
A day of inspiration as writer and speaker Kathleen Evenhouse encourages women with this truth: just as God chose others in the Bible who were far from perfect, he chooses us—yes, you and me!—for his purposes and for his work. Our imperfections allow him to shine and his transforming work will be realized in our lives. Kathleen’s engaging and creative style will inspire your soul!
