Pre-conference Special - "Taming the Techno Beast" featuring Todd Wilson!

In this recorded session, Todd will begin to help you smile again! Pre-register below by February 12 to receive this special bonus gift!


X-Boxes, Game-Cubes, the INTERNET, Facebook, and iPhones have changed the way we live, have fun, and interact. Children quietly glued to game monitors for hours have replaced laughter and creativity. They beg to play, whine when they can’t, and even lie about the time they’ve spent on “the gadget”. Teens and pre-teens spend most of their waking hours texting, chatting on Facebook, or ‘tweeting’ on Twitter. Today’s latest-breaking technology becomes tomorrow’s obsession, demanding more time, attention, and sacrifices. 


Technology has become a powerful tool and ‘everyone is doing it’…but maybe you feel like you’ve lost control in your own home. Does the chill down your spine tell you that something is terribly wrong? Do you feel like a beast has invaded your home, but you don’t know how to handle it? If so, then join me as we talk together about the timely topic of taming the TECHNO-BEAST!


Conference Sessions with Todd Wilson

As a conference partner you will have access to audio recordings of all of Todd's workshop sessions. If you did not register as a conference partner and would like to listen to all of Todd's sessions, register here for $35 and a link and password to the recordings will be sent to you.


Here's a comment from one attendee: 


"I really enjoyed all of Todd's sessions. I picked up a few of his books as well and have been implementing his suggestions. I see them making a difference in my marriage and kids already. Thank you!" 

-- Brandi
