The 21 Rules of This House cover just about every situation common to young children and teens in the home. The goal in using these “House Rules” is to clarify for everyone what is pleasing and displeasing to Mom and Dad, regardless of their moods, and to administer appropriate discipline, without anger, in response to any willful defiance. It’s amazing how quickly children and teens can come around, once parents become consistent.
What is a “Wisdom Workshop?”
Through wisdom a house is built,
And by understanding it is established;
By knowledge the rooms are filled
With all precious and pleasant riches.
Noble Institute brings the light of biblical wisdom to every path of life.
Our first goal in every event is Christian evangelism. “He who wins souls is wise.” But we accomplish our evangelistic goals most effectively by developing and presenting “wisdom workshops” on topics that believers and yet-to-be believers can benefit from — marriage, family, child training, education, time management, home/family business and decision making, to name just a few. The practical material opens hearts and minds to receive God’s answer to the deeper and more important need for forgiveness and salvation.
Each topic makes it easy for Christians to bring along friends and family members. Business owners can bring their entire staff. The membership of entire local churches and Christian schools can benefit together in one fun and effective weekend.
This is because in every workshop we present the goodness and wisdom of God’s will for our lives in such a way as to “adorn the gospel” and make it compelling for everyone to trust in the goodness of God enough to actually obey Jesus Christ as Lord.
Our workshops provide more than just useful information. Each session also brings inspiration and motivation to change. Marriages can be healed. Discouragement can be broken. Hope can be restored. We “cast vision” for what life will be like under Christ’s far more competent “management.”
Our Flagship Workshop
Our flagship workshop for 2014 is called Raising Kids to Do Hard Things. It is all about being wise in the way we raise our children. It encourages parents to aim their kids high at targets that matter.
The beginning of wisdom is to fear the Lord. At the very least that means to stop ignoring His purpose for entrusting your children and grandchildren to your care.
Wisdom is the ability to see how one thing relates to another in God’s purposes. He accomplishes a thousand things in everything He does, and in the Christian family God is accomplishing a lot.
First, He brings one man and one woman together in holy matrimony. He provides for the financial needs of the family and of His entire kingdom through the financial interests of generous householders. He brings new children into the world, and then He is saves the souls of those children for all eternity. Through these household responsibilities God raises up qualified leadership for His church, and He sends out every member of the godly family to shine as lights in this world. This is how God uses households to lead their neighbors to Christ. This is what it means to walk in the wisdom of God.
Join the Rebelution!
My son’s, Alex & Brett, have done a good job of raising awareness of millions about what teens are capable of. TheRebelution.com has helped to launch a youth movement around the world to do hard things for the glory of God and the good of others.
Now, through my parenting workshop, Raising Kids to Do Hard Things, God is raising up parents and grandparents to do hard things as well.
Each family, as a team, is far more effective than any one individual could ever be. But a local church, functioning as a neighborhood-team of like-minded family-households serving in voluntary association with one another, can do even more.
By coordinating their efforts and contributing their resources to the cause, neighborhood groups can be even more effective than any one family-household could ever be by itself. And so it goes. Entire communities can be transformed by the power of the gospel.
Noble Institute offers the training workshops that raise up a new generation of “Founding Fathers.” We cast the vision for ordinary householders to live as ambassadors for Christ by making their home an embassy of the kingdom of God. Through our efforts God is bringing another Great Awakening to our nation. Thousands are coming to Christ.
