3-4pm: Navigating Your Student’s Future: 3 Keys to Life Preparation by Woody Robertson
Most parents have a secret fear of watching their children grow up to make poor, purposeless choices. You are not alone. And when speaking with young adults, we find that many of them feel overwhelmed by the amount of choices they face. However, parents can walk with their children through these decisions, not by knowing the future, but through exploring their child’s unique life purpose, asking the right questions and pursuing real-life experiences.

Woody Robertson is a first generation home school graduate, Woody is passionate about reaching the next generation of culture shapers.

An entrepreneur and visionary, Woody has been a principle player in several start-up companies. In 2004, he co-founded CollegePlus (now Lumerit Unbound) and earned his accredited BSBA in General Management in 18 months for under $10k!

Characterized by a high level of energy and enthusiasm, Woody blends each session with motivating and practical information which attendees can put immediately into practice.
Gina Robertson is a normal gal with an intense desire to support and encourage those in the trenches of everyday life. Home educated from the ground up and first born “guinea pig” of seven, she kept her parents on their toes (and knees) with her passionate 110% approach to life! Fun, spunky, enlightening, and exhortational, Gina loves “let’s get real” heart-chats with young women and believes that life is too short to act like we’ve got it all together. She is actively involved in Life Purpose Planning, an organization which supports Christian students as they discover their God-given purpose. Previously, she directed a discipleship-training program for young women, has spoken internationally and facilitated conference and event coordination. Now her story continues in San Antonio with her “Gate Man,” Woody (see Prov. 31:23) and daughter Callie!
