Conference 2020



I think there is every reason to gather in face-to-face fellowship this year, don’t you? Well, here is your chance.

The year is 2020, and the subject is discipline.

Oftentimes, when talking to mothers (especially Christian mothers), if the subject of discipline comes up in conversation, we tend to be talking about the discipline of children. We discuss temper tantrums, attitudes, sin, parenting methods. We commiserate, we listen, we advise, we share stories of “terrible twos.” But something my friend Mystie Winckler likes to say is that we all have an inner two year old (and we all said, amen).
So let it be no surprise to you, when you attend Disciplined this year, to find out that there will be zero sessions on the discipline of your children.
The discipline we will discuss is self-discipline.
This conference is for YOU, mamas!

Please join us on Saturday, November 7th, 2020 as we exhort and encourage one another in beautiful practices of self-discipline by faith in Christ. We will hear from Cindy Rollins, Mystie Winckler, Sara Wallace, and Bekah Merkle about the discipline of identity, the discipline of organization, the discipline of emotions, the discipline of femininity, the discipline of attention and remembrance and fortitude… so much to learn!

Location: His Place Church in Post Falls, ID (3079 E 16th AVE POST FALLS, ID 83854).

We sold out all the seats we were allotted by the location in just two weeks! There will not be an option to pay at the door this year – we have closed registration. Please read our Policies here, including our Covid-19 contingencies. If you have registered for Disciplined, you will receive the link to download the recordings (including video this year!) for personal use afterward, whether you showed up to the event or not. So you can have lifetime access to this encouragement as long as you are registered. Early Birds (which ended up being everybody!), you are invited to a private webinar with Cindy Rollins as a particular perk and special gift prior to our live event to whet your appetite! This will be a brand new, very timely session called Educating the Freeborn: The 10 Commandments for Living and Learning as Free People. This event will happen live on Zoom at 9am PST on Saturday, October 24th; and, of course, you can watch the replay if you cannot stream live.

Amongst other new things, we have a new caterer this year… and you get to choose between two menus: one happens to be free of meat, one happens to be free of gluten ~ and both sound full of deliciousness!

We have a hotel block at the Best Western in Liberty Lake, WA (just a 10-12 minute drive to the conference) for your use if you plan to stay overnight before or after the conference. You can have a 2-queen room for $89+tax if you call (509) 755-1111 and tell them you are “with the Paideia conference.”
If you prefer to do your own legwork, there are lots of other options (hotels and AirBnbs) in Spokane, WA and Coeur d’Alene, ID.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions at

If you need fodder for contemplation in the meantime, let me suggest you pick up these books:
Mere Motherhood by Cindy Rollins
Created to Care by Sara Wallace
Eve in Exile by Bekah Merkle

and check out to find Mystie Winckler doling out constant rallies to bring us to Christ, to the Word, and to a reorienting of our attitudes in light of the Holy Spirit at work within us.
