It was when Kay Smith, Pastor Chuck’s wife, taught a Bible study in their home that Jean fell in love with ministering to women. The Lord has given her the privileged opportunity of heading up women’s ministries in the churches Don has pastored as well as the opportunity to share at women’s retreats and couple’s retreats with Don. The Lord blessed them with three boys, thirteen grandchildren and four great-grandchildren that have given her countless illustrations.

Workshop: Finishing Well

Workshop: Raising Children
As a culture, moms are parenting according to Satan’s lies instead of the promises of God! This workshop will reveal the lies that moms are believing and implementing when it comes to raising their children! We will then re-discover what God’s word promises regarding raising our children. When we parent according to God’s promises, our parenting will look very different from the culture!
