Schedule of Events

9am – 11am A Day in My Life

This morning session is all about home management and Jenise is going to walk you through every detail of her day, starting the night before, and explain what she does and why she does it. This talk is going to give incredibly practical ideas on how to take care of yourself, while caring for your husband and family at all stages of life.

11:30am – 12:30pm Why I Didn’t Rebel

Katie and her sister’s are going to create a panel discussing, from their perspectives, why they didn’t rebel, and how their parents helped them embrace their family values. This session is going to focus heavily on the middle school through teenage/adult years, and ways to keep your child’s heart and develop strong relationship with them. It is also going to touch on sibling friendship, and other family related themes.

12:30pm -1:30pm Lunch


1:30pm – 2:30pm Get to Know Each other

We want to get to know each other as like-minded women and create encouraging friendships to bring back to our homes! During this time we will take a stroll around the Johnson’s private farming community and visit.

2:30pm – 3:30pm Child Training

Jenise and Katie are going to focus on practical and tactical ways to train and help children develop from birth to 6 years old.

5:30pm – 6:30pm Dinner


6:30pm – 7pm Closing Session


7pm – 10:30pm  Relaxation

As mothers we rarely get the time to have a full conversation without being interrupted or sit back and relax. This evening is going to be a time for both. Enjoy dessert, and visit while soaking in the Jacuzzi, having a foot bath, or giving yourself a facial until you’re ready to leave. This evening will be open-ended for a few hours of carefree timelessness.
