YOU ARE INVITED
TO COME & GAIN TOOLS FOR A

"CELESTIAL EDUCATION"


What is the true purpose of education?


What does God most want us to learn in this life, and what are the most important lessons for our children?


Is the education we are receiving preparing us to be the Zion people the Lord needs us to be?


Are the models we are pursuing for ourselves and our families borderline telestial, brilliantly terrestrial, or are they truly Celestial?

What is the difference?


These are some of the questions "Celestial Education" will help us to answer.

GOD CARES DEEPLY ABOUT EDUCATION & HE HAS MUCH TO SAY ON THE MATTER.

AS WE SEEK OUT & DISCOVER GOD'S TEACHINGS ON EDUCATION,
WE CAN LEARN TO OVERCOME THE DIMNESS OF THE TRADITIONS OF OUR FATHERS (THE LIGHT OF A STAR),
GO BEYOND THE GREAT LEARNING OF MAN (THE LIGHT OF THE MOON),
& BEGIN THE MIRACULOUS PROCESS OF LEARNING BY THE LIGHT OF THE SUN.

Come & be inspired to help ourselves & our children discover the brilliance
of who God knows we are & what he knows we can become.

Picture

Celestial Education speaker Michelle Brady Stone is the happy wife of Shane and the devoted mother of their seven children. Michelle was born and raised in Salt Lake City, UT as the ninth and youngest child of Ted and Janeen Brady. After many years of public education, she feels that her true education has come since immersing herself in learning, family life, the scriptures, and the spirit of the Lord. Michelle determined early on to teach her children at home in order to help them receive a fullness of truth. She is an ardent student of the scriptures and finds great joy in learning and sharing the precious gems of truth which they contain. Shane and Michelle currently reside in Highland, UT.

"My association with Michelle has been a plunge into my mission I believe.  Meaning that before I met her I had a lot of questions and probably answers to things but not anything really confirmed.  But it's been as if the heavens opened and I more fully recognize the hand of the Lord in my life.  Michelle has introduced to me, by her being and her example, what it is like to "live by the spirit".  It's a very new and refreshing approach to life.  I realize that for a very long time, I have been in the dark, struggling on my own.  Now it's as if the lights have been turned on and angels are guiding me along the way."  Shauna Kaiserman

Another homeschool Mom stated about Michelle's "Celestial Education" presentation: "This is the icing on the cake!"

Come and feast upon that which truly satisfies the soul!
Please join us, and invite your friends- members or not -single or married,
whether their children are in homeschool, or public school.
This is about how each of us can progress towards what God has in mind for us personally.

Looking forward to sharing the afternoon with you!
