Solving Your Science Struggles

Let’s face it—most people don’t like science. Why is that? It’s likely because of how science was taught to them as children. In this talk, based on years of research, data and experience, Jeannie Fulbright shares her understanding of how science should be taught to elementary students. You will learn the keys to successfully building a solid foundation of science education, with tips, ideas and examples for making science come to life for both parents and students.

The Greatest Deterrent to Homeschooling—Fear and Inadequacy

This presentation is based upon scriptural principles gleaned from King Jehoshaphat of Judah and the teachings of Jesus Christ.

However, there will be specific application principles that will be given in a 1-2-3 etc. format to help those who like to take away specific points to overcome fear of failure, one of the greatest enemies of homeschooling moms.

This workshop is based on Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me; and the life that I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave His life for me.” This is a deeply challenging call to Christian men of all ages to follow in the footsteps of Christ; to be the kind of man that the Lord can use, that his wife can count on and that his children can look up to.
