Run with Perseverance

After graduating her first student this year, Amanda shares with wit and humor how you can run the race of homeschooling well—and live to tell about it! This workshop is geared to provide inspiration and motivation to stay the course. Drawing from over a dozen years of experience, Amanda will share practical steps you can take to soar over the hurdles that commonly trip up even the best runners.

Truth and Harmony: The Goals of a Christian Education

Our Lord Jesus calls Himself “the Truth,” and Paul the apostle asserted that “He might gather together all things in Christ.” John added that Christ is "The Word.” Yet, we still tend to teach a fragmented curriculum oriented not toward Truth but toward worldly success. Is that our best option? This workshop strives for a higher objective, rethinking the whole learning sequence in light of the person of Christ and the Holy Trinity.

Minimize, Simplify and Prioritize

This workshop encourages parents to evaluate exactly what is important. Susan will address things that seem to weigh us down physically—disorder of house, school and schedules, as well as mentally and spiritually—attitudes of discouragement, defeat, wrong focus, comparing ourselves with the Jones’s, or setting goals too high. She will stress the importance of family time, devotion time, and creating a schedule that works—with both a tad of flexibility and discipline. She will discuss choosing things that are most useful and necessary for your children with the time and eternity in mind.
