Examples of Available Topics:

How Communication Reflects our Character:  Skills that Build Relationships — One of the top problem areas in relationships is poor communication.  In this life-changing series, Dave and Rebecca not only train people in practical communication skills, they also show how those skills grow out of character qualities such as respect, compassion and authenticity.

Helping Families Thrive — In this series, Dave helps parents apply Colossians 3:12-17 to their home, teaching them how to build qualities such as peace, unity and forbearance into their family life.

Boundaries with Teens — In this material adapted from John Townsend’s book by the same name, the Frieses give basic principles on setting boundaries for parents of teens, and then apply them in practical ways to issues such as dating, media, and dealing with disrespect.

How to Preserve your Marriage through the Holidays: A practical guide to reduce stress and maximize joy throughout the year — The holiday season brings unique pressures that can be tough on marriages!  With a blend of humor and practical tips, Dave and Rebecca teach topics such as Managing Expectations; Dealing with In-Laws, Outlaws and Ex-es; and How to End Negative Cycles in your Marriage.

Generation to Generation: Leaving a Spiritual Legacy — Dave and Rebecca walk parents through Biblical content and practical tips for passing your faith along to your children.  Parents will leave having created a personal family mission statement and plan.  (Some of this material is adapted from a seminar developed by HomeWord.)

Understanding Your Teen — The Frieses help parents to understand teen development and the unique challenges teens face.  This material is suited for a keynote talk or can be expanded for a series of talks.

Knowing What You Believe and Teaching It to Your Teen — This series addresses big questions such as Does God exist? Is the Bible reliable? and Why does God allow evil in the world?  Not only are parents helped to clarify their own beliefs on these issues, they are also given practical tips for discussing these topics with their teens.

For Women’s Events:

Thrive: A Study of the Book of Philippians — In this series of talks appropriate for a retreat or weekend event, Rebecca teaches on the book of Philippians, drawing out lessons for flourishing as a Christian.  She takes each of the four chapters one at a time, and talks about Confidence, Community, Commitment, and Contentment.

Good from Evil: A Glimpse of How God Redeems — In this simple but powerful talk, Rebecca addresses the age-old question of how a good God could allow evil in the world.  She shares her personal testimony of healing from childhood sexual abuse as an example of how God can redeem and use even painful events for good in our lives.

Finding Joy: Overcoming Anxiety and Depression — Rebecca brings the perspective of a Christian therapist to two of the most common mental health issues, anxiety and depression, helping women to find hope and move toward a more joyful life.

Praying the Psalms: Deepening Your Walk with God — A beautiful route to more intimacy with God is to learn to pray the Psalms.  Rebecca gives insight into helpful ways to implement this practice in your own walk with God.

God Redeems: A Look at the Life of Joseph — Hated by his brothers, sold into slavery, thrown into prison, and rising to prominence, Joseph is an amazing example of how God can bring good even out of pain and evil.  Walk with Rebecca through the story of Joseph and gain valuable insights into faith, healing and forgiveness.
