I’m Worn-Out, Going Crazy and Making My Kids Stupid, Would Somebody Please Help?

Have you ever felt this way? If so, please join us for this workshop for both husbands and wives. This seminar focuses on real vs. false expectations, barriers to overcome and the most important areas to focus on. If you are finding yourself lacking motivation in your homeschooling and wonder if you can make it to the end, come for encouragement and ideas to help you along the way!

Saying “Yes” to God until You Can Say “Yes” to Your Man

Every young woman longs for the day when she can say “yes” to the man she loves, though waiting for the right one and the right time can be hard. What can a woman (of any age!) do to experience hope and joyful patience while waiting for that day? Not only currently the mom of five teenage and adult daughters, Tracy was also a widow for three years, waiting on God again for a godly husband. (Note: There will be encouragement for wives as well, on saying “yes” to God even after we’re married.)

Emotion in Christian Anthropology

Modern Christians are often skeptical of focusing on emotions and the impact they have on our lives. As a result, we are often tossed to and fro by forces in our own hearts that exercise an overwhelming influence in our lives. In this workshop, we will explore the biblical nature of emotions, how God intends them to enrich our lives and how we can channel both negative and positive emotions into constructive action.

What Every Son should Know, What Every Father should Teach (Derek)

Carter discusses the rites of the Passage Program that he has used (and is presently using) with his son and encourages churches, community groups and other dads to embrace the model to raise mighty men of God for the twentieth century church.

The Case for Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture

How can Christians bring moral clarity to issues like abortion and embryonic stem cell research? How can they use science and philosophy to present a gracious and persuasive case for the pro-life view? Scott uses humor and hard-hitting logic to argue for the truth of the pro-life view and suggests three key questions that must be answered by biblically-informed Christians on the single greatest moral issue of our day.

Firm in Your Faith

This workshop is designed to embolden teens and twenty-somethings in Christ and provide them with adequate tools that will get them engaged in transforming the world for Christ.

Teaching the Learning Disabled Child

A learning disability presents many unique challenges to any teacher as they search for the most effective way to teach their child. Based on solid research, William and Kristen have designed this workshop to present teaching strategies and adaptations that have been shown to effectively meet the needs of students who struggle with various learning disabilities.

Foreign Language in Your Homeschool: from the Traditional to the Revolutionary!

Do I have to speak a language to teach it? Which language should I teach? Which curriculum is best and what’s the difference? When should we begin—is kindergarten too early? What about high school and getting credit? Are you using a computer/CD/video program, but your child won’t say anything? Find out why! This workshop will cover foreign language study from kindergarten through high school, the benefits, what to expect from the different curricula, what to look for in a curriculum and how language study can help develop a heart for missions.

A Basic Educational Strategy

How do I know I am giving my children what they really need? For what purpose am I preparing them? How can I most effectively teach them? Are there faulty objectives and strategies I have unintentionally carried over from public education? Even those who have been teaching their children at home for years still struggle with these questions. Our answers influence our priorities and strategies. In this session, we will discuss a basic biblical philosophy of education upon which our daily teaching activities can be built.

Sanity’s in the Freezer (Melanie)

Learn how to have real meals again! Don’t worry if you have tried once-a-month cooking and didn’t like the mess. Melanie didn’t like that either! Find out how to feed your family well on less money and how to serve great dinners with minimal time in the kitchen and no stress. This workshop, popular from Ontario to California, will give beginners in the kitchen a place to start and veterans new and refreshing ideas. Great for teens, too.
