So mark your calendars because you aren't going to want to miss out on this. Here's a little about him...

{TWO FREE events}
I know it seems to good to be true, but Dan's agreed to hold two FREE events on Saturday, March 14th. One for the youth ages 12-18 that afternoon about Living in the Sweet Spot, and one for the adult that evening from 5:30-9:00 all about the book The Fourth Turning.

For the Youth:
12-18 years old
12:30-2:00 (light refreshment included)
Description:
Living Life in the Sweet Spot! It seems that some of the unavoidable feelings of life include: awkward, clumsy, frumpy, plain, unstylish, overwhelmed, out of place, and bored. In "Living Life in the Sweet Spot", I hope to shed some light on how you can bump into your sweet spot, your groove, your niche, your mojo.
*Dan's going to be giving this same lecture to the youth that attend the Salt Lake TJed Forum, so it will be AWESOME to have him come give it to our youth too!!!

For the Adults:
5:30-9:00
5:30-6:30 Potluck Dinner (Great time to mingle and get to know other homeschooling families in the area better!)
6:30-8:30 Fourth Turning Lecture by Dan
8:30-9:30 Wrap up...possibly Q&A
Description:
The Fourth Turning! Dan will be shedding some light on and helping us understand more about the concepts and themes presented in the book The Fourth Turning. With the way things are going right now this seems like the perfect time to learn more about these fascinating cycles that seem to consistently happen over and over throughout time. Where are we in the cycle and what can we expect for the future? Come join us for an incredible nigh
t!

{Where}
All the events will be held at our home in Queen Creek (Ironwood/Ocotillo) I'll email directions out later!

Dan Ralphs is an incredible speaker. I was priviledged to hear him speak at a Youth for America and was blown away by his ability to connect with his audience, especially youth. He truly has a gift! I know you'll enjoy his visit. :)

Is it an LDS only thing...like will he be speaking from an LDS perspective or is it more of a TJED thing? Could you let me know, I'm thinking of coming and have a friend interested. Thanks.

Jessica, Sorry I didn't reply. It isn't an LDS thing at all. In fact I know of at least two others who aren't members of the LDS church that will be coming. We'd love to have your friends too.
