Order in the Heart, Order in the Home

In order to homeschool effectively, there must be order in the home. With a household of eleven, Jessica has had the opportunity to learn by necessity how to keep (relatively) clean clothes on the children, get three healthy meals each day, have school time and still stay sane (again, relatively speaking). From the age of two, her children are assigned a weekly chore. Whether training one child or a houseful, you will find helpful ideas in this workshop on how to organize your home, life and homeschool. The heart of this workshop is how to reach the hearts of your children.

From 12 to 20: Mentoring Your Son from a Boy into a Man

What do you want your son to be like at twenty years old? When he is heading off to college or getting married is probably too late to decide. This session will teach you how to start with the end in mind and provide some practical coaching on how you can maximize the years from twelve to twenty to grab the heart of your son and pour into him those qualities you want to be a part of his character as he moves away from boyhood and into manhood.

More Than Just Screen Time

Do you think of computers and technology as unproductive screen time or as useful tools? We'll consider that question through stories and real-life examples then discuss practical ways of using technology in your homeschool to prepare your children for life and careers.
