Mom Heart--moving in new directions

SALLY: Heart-to-Heart... 

Dear Friends,

We are so very excited to be a part of what God is doing in our culture at this time in history. Families are hungry for input, training, and inspiration to know what to do in order to have healthy relationships with their children, and to discover the purpose and fulfillment that comes from living according to God's biblical design for parenting. I want to tell you about several events for mothers coming up soon, but be sure to hear a personal message from me that I just posted on YouTube.


April 29: Schoolhouse Expo WebinarIn two weeks, I will be speaking, along with Clay and Sarah, on a special edition of the Schoolhouse Expo webinar offered by Old Schoolhouse Magazine. On Thursday evening, April 29, we will have our very own "A Night with the Clarksons" time to share for three hours about motherhood, books, and homeschooling. To find out more about the Schoolhouse Expo or to register online, go to theSchoolhouse Expo website. Also be sure to visit blog where I will be giving away three tickets to this event. Each winner will also receive a special resource-filled digital "gift bag," a special promotional added extra from TOS valued at $300.00. Stop by today and sign up for the drawing!

May 1: Mom Heart Leader Basic Training

On Saturday, May 1, I will lead a one-day leader training seminar for women who want to start and lead Mom Heart groups in their homes, communities, or churches. You can register online on the Mom Heart Leader Basic Trainingpage on our website. The sessions will be filmed to provide DVD and online training videos later for women all over the world who have a heart to minister to moms. We are putting together a Mom Heart Group Leader Manual that will be filled with helpful suggestions and instruction on how to plan and lead a small group, and interact with moms. If you live near the Woodlands (north Houston), please consider joining us. We know how imporatan fellowship and accountability can be in ministry, so bring along a friend, too, so you can learn together how to minister to moms. My friend Sandra Maddox will be with me from California. She will speak on how to start a mothers ministry within a church setting. She began with a group of moms at Saddleback Church, and now has a regular group of over 200 moms who are being discipled and trained weekly in her Treasured ministry. She will share from her experience how to start and lead a mothers ministry.

August 5-8: Mom Heart Leader Intensive Training

Our vision is for Mom Heart to be an international movement of small groups for mothers. We cannot do that alone, so we are stepping ahead in faith to find other women who share our heart, values, and beliefs to be become leaders, speakers, and writers for Mom Heart Ministry. If God continues to open doors as we move ahead in faith, our plan is to host, on August 5-8 here in Monument, CO, a Mom Heart Leader Intensive Trainingevent at my home. Out of those who attend we are asking God to begin to raise up some who will help us with writing projects, creating blogs and web material, and speaking for events and Mominars (one-day church seminars for moms), all to help restore moms' hearts to God's design, not just in the states, but around the world. The conference will train them to present Mom Heart materials, as well as turn their own personal family stories into messages, both spoken and written. You can read more about this high-intensity ministry training weekend on my blog at, and on the MHLIT event page on our website. Registration will be limited to 30 women, and a detailed application will be required for all desiring to attend (requires a $10 application fee available online).&# 0160;

Whenever times are challenging for Christians, that means there are also increased opportunities for ministry to others. We sense the Holy Spirit moving in the hearts of mothers, and are trying to respond "for such a time as this" by training mothers to minister to mothers. We hope you will share our heart and join the cause! In the midst of these days of challenge and opportunity, just remember that "the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you" (1 Peter 5:10). You are in our prayers as we pray that God's grace and loving care will be evident in each of your lives.

In His Heart,





A Few Closing Thoughts...


WHOLE HEART ONLINE...IS LIVE!: The all new Whole Heart Online website ( is officially "live" and in operation. We're still a long way from getting all of the content onto the site, and we haven't really started blogging on it yet, but the new site is finally there.Come by and take a look! It will only get better in the coming weeks. 


MOM HEART ONLINE: We'll be turning soon to begin developing the new Mom Heart Online website (it will be located at when it goes live). Stay tuned!


MOMINARS AND MORE: We are looking ahead to the rest of 2010 and into 2011 for church facilities to offer Mominars (a one-day church-based motherhood seminar) and other Mom Heart events. If you live in a larger metropolitan area, and are involved in a larger church that makes its facility available for ministry, please let us know. We'd love to explore new opportunities.
