Help define a vision for your children
Let’s see how the rookie Bob Hilmer and Team 1 present this returning topic back by popular demand.
Every father wants their child to experience things in life which make them happy. How do you as a father, help your child define their vision, in a world of a wants and wishes, which can often bring unhappiness to their life?

- Talking and Listening to God
Friday, October 01, 2010 @ 6:03 AM at Hageman Hall
- Talking to God is important. However listening to God is imperative. Do we only know how to talk to God and ask or tell Him what to do or are we trying equally as hard to listen to what God wants from us? Presented by Team 2
- Family Relationships
Friday, October 08, 2010 @ 6:03 AM at Hageman Hall
- Do you have a family member who you haven’t talked to in a long time? Perhaps a brother, sister, aunt or uncle that you just can’t seem to get along with or that long standing grudge you don’t even recall the cause of? How do we as fathers find the opportunity to reach out and show love for the people around us who make up our family? Presented by Team 3
- Goals: Are you and your spouse on the same page, do you know her dreams?
Friday, October 15, 2010 @ 6:03 AM at Hageman Hall
- Relationships are dynamic and are ever changing. Is your relationship with your wife growing closer or further apart? One way for the relationship to improve is to have common shared goals or dreams. Goals take many forms, you may call them “dreams, expectations, desire, ideals, vision, values”. Shared goals don’t happen by accident, they take work and communication. Presented by Team 4
