Homeschool as a Single Mom

Finding herself a widow homeschooling five children, Charlotte shares some of the perspectives and insights of single parent homeschooling. Some lessons learned: adjusting to our current circumstances is not unique to single parents, how to positively embrace and maximize our circumstances, how to deal with reality that is vastly different from our expectations and knowing laughter and tears can intermingle in a healthy 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.)

The Paradigm of Wonder

Life-long learners, heroes advancing the Kingdom, dreamers who see the possibilities, adults who still have a twinkle in their eye and smile playing about their lips, passionate people pursuing a vision—these don’t come from a box, a workbook, a curriculum or a four-step plan, but they are the very heart of who we want our homeschooled children to become. Explore the essentials of a well-lived childhood that create space for the adventures of a lifetime. You don’t consider the floor properly vacuumed just because someone passed a machine over it.

Unwary Victims: Finding Freedom from Mindsets that Enslave

You’ve tried all the techniques, bought all the math manipulatives and covered all your curriculum with the correct faith-building veneer. Still, something seems to sabotage your plans. Whether you are a single or married parent, your mindset matters. This workshop will be a hard look at what can undermine both your parenting and your homeschool, but doesn’t have to. There is hope, encouragement and insight that will help!
