"Tests are not a plot and conspiracy against you.  A test is to determine what you know, to see if you're ready for the next level (ie - a math test).  Don't moan over tests — count them all joy, and pass them!" — Karen Jensen

Host a Parenting With a Purpose Seminar


Karen Jensen has conducted Parenting With a Purpose Seminars throughout the U.S. and overseas. Her seminars cover both spiritual and practical aspects of parenting for both married and single parents.



Seminar topics include:

  • God's plan for your family
  • Surrounding your children with faith and love
  • Obedience and correction
  • Roles and stages of parenting (teenagers)

How it works:

  • Many churches host the seminar on a Saturday, from 10 am to 2 pm with a break for lunch.  Or start on a Sunday morning service, then continue Sunday night and Monday night with the seminar. Other options can be arranged. We ask that you guarantee at least 25 attendees through advance sign ups.
  • There is no fee for hosting a seminar, but travel and lodging costs are covered by the host, and a free-will love offering is requested.  Many churches have Karen minister in their regular Sunday morning services as well, on a variety of subjects. It's up to you whether you charge attendees for the seminar (which sometimes adds value).
  • We ask that you allow Karen to sell her products and materials, and that you not make recordings of the seminar available but rather direct attendees to purchase her products.
  • The host must provide childcare during the seminar.
  • For more tips on how to make a Parenting seminar even more successful in your community, email and ask for a copy of the pre-seminar idea sheet.

What Parent's Are Saying

“My four year old son was out of control, to the point where I had to take him out of pre-school and stay home with him. But after just a few days of applying these parenting principles, he has changed dramatically!  Now he listens and obeys, and our home is peaceful – it’s almost miraculous! I am putting him back in school and able to continue with my own schooling.  Thank you so much!”  — F.L.

“My wife and I began putting these principles into practice right away and began to see excellent results. Our children respond very well to our godly way of discipline.  So much better for us. Thank you!”    — M.L.

“I attended one of Karen's seminars and it was far above everything I expected. It has equipped me with information that I needed to properly launch my children into their destinies.” — R.T.

“I have a 2 year old daughter and I didn’t believe in spanking until I watched Parenting With a Purpose and was made to understand the biblical purpose of spanking. Now I get it!  Now my daughter will benefit every day of her life – she’ll be able to fulfill God’s purpose for her life.  My home is now peaceful and calm with a loving and obedient daughter who will grow up obeying God’s Word quickly.”   — T.O.

“I learned SO much from Parenting With a Purpose about God’s view of parenting. I especially learned about correction and why & how to do it.  I can’t imagine waiting until my child is older before taking this course.” — K.H.

“After applying these principles of correction then praying with my son afterwards, he gave me a big hug and looked straight into my eyes and said, ‘I love you, Mom!’ I just melted.  He is 3 and has never expressed this kind of emotion before. I have taken many parenting classes and finally one that works! I now have the skills to help my child obey me so he will obey God." — M.J.

"Our 6-year-old grandson got his first report card at school this Friday.  The teacher had only positive things to say about him.  She said he is affectionate and helpful, both to her and his fellow sutdents.  He is obedient, attentive and a good worker. His big ‘turn around’ from being a rather disobedient and whiny troublemaker began when you came to our city and taught us how to raise children God’s way. My husband and I bought your Parenting With a Purpose CDs and gave them to our daughter.  Since then our grandson has never been the same.  I am so happy.  Thank you so much for coming!"  — L.K.
