Finding Hidden Design (DE007)

The redemptive gifts are sooooooooo 1990s. They are one significant grid for understanding some aspects of your children’s design, but there is so much more than that.

This class assumes you already have a solid grasp of the redemptive gifts of your children and are ready to build on that.

In the teaching times I will explore new ways to look at your children’s ordinary, daily behavior, so you can mine those activities for clues to their design.

Then in the class times and through emails, we will discuss the behavior, put language to it, explore the potential of the full-blown expression of that facet of their design, and build strategies you can use for parenting.

It is an extremely interactive class, involving discussion on the calls and emails in between. It is not a class to be audited. Failure to turn in your homework, barring significant external circumstances, will lead to your being dropped from the class.

The price is per household. Single parents are welcome, as are parents whose spouse is not supportive.

Course Instructor
Arthur Burk

Imagine someone owning a mansion but living in the garage, cooking on a hot plate.

I hate that picture. Wasted treasures.

I live in a world where a lot of people are trying to fix their brokenness, and I respect that. But the far bigger tragedy is people who are reasonably healed, but are living small because they don’t see who they really are.

I am passionate about God’s design. Every single thing God placed in us from the previous generations MATTERS. Whether working with adults or children, winners or losers, high profile or invisible, I crave discovering, legitimizing and unpacking the treasures God has put in people.

Course Prerequisites
The prerequisites for this course are listed below.

Listen (or relisten) to all of the Redemptive Gifts of Individuals within the last 60 days.

Before registering for the class, write me with the names and ages of your children and what you think their redemptive gifts are. We will dialog via email to determine whether you are a good fit for the class. As needed, we might have a phone call as well.

Add to that, anything you already know above and beyond gender and gift, so we can start a dialog. In other words, do you have a musician, a climber, a foodie or a free spirit/wild child?

Access to a strong enough Internet connection and a computer for a Zoom call. Taking the class on your phone is not acceptable.

Please note: If you purchase this course and have NOT fulfilled the prerequisites by the beginning of the first class, you will be removed from the course and charged a 20% penalty.
