that's really nice but for the working world of people, its scheduled at a terrible time. Bummer. I would drive down there from the central valley to those if they were on a weekend.

Wish we could attend these workshops online. We live in Perham, MN and have a small group here that is active in the Daniel Plan. We are walking weekly together. Our oldest member is 85 and the youngest 55 yrs ( and he is the pastor of our United Methodist Church.)

Are all the workshops in the mornings? It would be great to have some in the evenings so those who work can participate.

The women's workshops look great. Unfortunatly, I work during the hours that the work shops are offered
Posted by Faye 7/1/2011 9:49:00 AM
I'm thankful these workshops are during the day as driving to Saddleback at night is difficult for me.
Posted by Tanya 7/1/2011 12:42:00 PM
These workshops are exactly what I'm looking for, but it would be nice if we could watch it live via webinar/webex since it's during working hours.

Could these sessions be posted as a videocast? I have been leading a Daniel Plan group for the women at my church in Maryland and we would love to "attend"!
Posted by Stan 7/5/2011 12:36:00 PM
I wish this was available online as well. I live in NJ!
Posted by Barb 7/5/2011 12:56:00 PM
Could they record the sessions on DVD for those of us who cannot be there?
Posted by HD 7/5/2011 1:00:00 PM
Any chance of posting them online?
Posted by Brandy 7/5/2011 1:13:00 PM
These look great but unfortunately they are offered an an awful time since most people work 8 or 9am to 5 or 6pm. Could these be made available online or offered in the evenings as well?
Posted by Karen 7/5/2011 1:24:00 PM
It would be wonderful in these could be made available online. I live in NorthCarolina but am participating through thewebsite.

Would you let me know if you put these online to view? I work weekdays. I would love to hear them!! Thanks so much...
Posted by David Jahr 7/7/2011 10:37:00 AM
Hello! We will be video-taping the workshops and making them available here on the web site for those of you who cannot attend. Due to the workload currently on our video team's plate, it make a week or two. Stay tuned! Thank you for your interest!
Posted by Mary Corbin 7/9/2011 12:33:00 PM
Is there any way to post the series on line through videos? I live in the North Georgia mountains and one of your members, Kathy Gleason, shared with a few of us and we are motivated!

It's too bad it's not during the evening,I would love to attend
Posted by Lauren 7/14/2011 3:10:00 PM
I have noticed more than a few comments on having the workshops online..I feel the same. If at all possible, please make them available. I can't make it to any of them because I live in WA. Thanks.
