A Word about Our Mission

Danny craig speakingIn recent years, it has become painfully clear that our current systems of higher education are failing us. While most people recognize the problems of skyrocketing costs, debilitating debt and diminishing financial return, the truth is that there is an even greater problem to be addressed – the next generation is losing the vision for the Kingdom of God.

The Bible is clear that the only way to influence, equip and inspire the next generation is through relationship-based, character-focused, and life-integrated mentorship and discipleship. Though colleges may fail us, we can have hope of successfully launching the next generation if parents and students alike are trained to follow this powerful biblical model for life preparation.

No one is more passionate about sharing this message than Daniel Craig and the team at LifeLaunch. Daniel is enthusiastic about empowering leaders through education. He communicates in a way that casts a clear vision for others to grasp and carry with them. His sessions are loaded with practical how-to’s and tips attendees can put immediately into action.

Expect great feedback on Daniel’s dynamic style and inspiring content. If you want your attendees to leave your event with a vision and passion for the next generation and practical tools equipping them for that end, then contact us to today to schedule Daniel at your event.

Adult Sessions

 

1. The Power of Mentorship: Secrets to a Truly Higher Education

This session is a “must hear” for parents and students alike. Everyone recognizes that there are problems with traditional higher education. Yet for all the press, commentary and money spent to fix the problem, far too few people recognize the amazing benefits of one-on-one mentor-driven education. Even as homeschoolers, we often fail to realize that the need for biblical discipleship in education also applies to the college years. Get ready to adopt a new paradigm for “higher education” as Daniel explains how your student can launch into life NOW, with clear vision, through powerful mentoring relationships and real-life application.

2. Raising Kids to Understand and Pursue Their Calling

No matter where we turn, we’re facing an epidemic of visionless, clueless, fantasy-driven young people. Stuck in an education system which fosters this disconnect from reality, few Millennials, even Christians, are able to successfully bridge the gap into real life. From the perspective of a millennial, Daniel shares practical keys to helping your students understand their calling and engage life for the glory of God – today!

3. Miley Cyrus, Jesus and Me

When Miley Cyrus can garner over 19 million YouTube views in 24 hours by shamefully crashing into buildings on a giant wrecking ball, it’s impossible to deny that something is desperately wrong with our culture. While it might be nice to imagine that none of those defrauding views were by Christian homeschoolers, we cannot plead immunity to the lust and pride which saturates our toxic culture. The satanic rebellion of our generation is having its effect on us. So how should we respond? Should we resign ourselves to the status quo? Should we hide away in polar huts with lead lining?  Or, should we just pretend things are not as bad as they seem?

Upholding the biblical alternative to these extremes, this session will equip parents to help their children define a godly relationship to culture by asking five critical questions: “Who is God?” “Who am I?” “What has God done?” “What does He require?” and “Why?” Or to put it another way, “What’s the difference between Miley Cyrus, Jesus and Me?”

4. Teens Don’t Have to Rebel: Building Enduring Relationships with Your Children

Many parents begin the Homeschool Journey motivated by a strong desire to nurture deep and enduring relationships with their children. Over time, they realize that winning and keeping their children’s hearts requires something more than simply schooling them at home…especially during the teenage years.

But how do you keep your child’s heart without controlling it? How do you pass on your deepest convictions while at the same time avoiding the traps of legalism on the one hand, and permissiveness on the other? How do you foster healthy communication with your older children, maintaining the proper balance of love and respect?

With stories that will make you laugh (and maybe cry), Daniel shares how God, in His great mercy, used two wonderful, but imperfect parents to humbly, lovingly and yet courageously train him up in the way he should go, and not depart from it.

5. Why I’m Glad I Was Homeschooled (and Why Your Kids Will Be Too)

Parents considering homeschooling often worry about whether or not their children will turn out “normal”. They wonder if their children will emerge from homeschool truly prepared for success in life, or if they’ll emerge socially inept and uneducated.

In this session, Daniel Craig, a homeschool graduate, will share why he is glad he was homeschooled, and why your children will be too. Based on both his personal experience, and the unchanging truths of God’s word, Daniel will help you understand what homeschool “success” really is, where it comes from, and the real reason it matters.

5. Boy Meets Girl. What Now?!

So you kind of like this girl. Or you think he’s cute. NOW WHAT? Marriage is a wonderful blessing from God, but the path to the altar often seems covered with broken glass – at least that’s what the bloody feet of many couples would indicate! Getting back to God’s foundational principles, and offering balance to recent homeschool applications, Daniel shares insights and admonitions with his peers from personal experience based on his recent marriage and having grown up in the homeschool/courtship movement.

6. The Forgotten Secret to a Good Long Life

Walk into any bookstore in America, go to the self-help section and see how many books claim, in some fashion, to provide “The REAL Secret to a Good, Long Life.” Quite a few, right? But just how many do you think will tell you that the secret is to “Honor your father and mother that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth”? Probably not very many.

Presented by a fella who has to work hard at honoring parents – just like anyone else, this practical session will get down and dirty with what it really means to honor your parents and why it’s so important. (Hint: it’s the first commandment with a promise…)

You won’t hear this talk at your typical motivational seminar.

7. “You’re a Christian? That’s so weird!” 

Life in a post-modern world can be tough for Christians – especially young Christians.

With pressure-relieving simplicity, this session will equip young Christians to stand up, step out, and defend the Christian faith– all without losing their own.
