This session is for anyone who is homeschooling a child who just doesn’t seem to be into it. Books aren’t really his thing and the idea of writing is deplorable. Rebecca will introduce you to her spunky 12-year-old son, Malakai, who doesn’t fit the mold of a book learner. You’ll be laughing through the stories of these amazing kids who stretch us beyond what we thought was possible and walk away with some practical tips of how to understand the child you have and tweak your expectations to line up with the gift that God gave you.

Rebecca Spooner is a second generation homeschool mom of 5, author of More than Words Bible curriculum and Gather ‘Round Homeschool, international speaker and popular blogger at She is married to an RCMP (Canadian police) officer and lives in a frozen tundra (okay, it only snows half the year) in Northern BC, Canada. She is passionate about sharing real life and the message that this homeschooling life is messy and wonderful and challenging and most importantly—possible. Come join her in the midst of her chaos. She doesn’t promise to have it all together; she promises to give you hope, laughter and permission to make mistakes and know you are not alone, and this is worth the cost.
