All too often the lessons are finished, the books read, and the frogs dissected, but what priority does the principal have? When does he have time with his favorite teacher? When was the principal-teacher meeting — a/k/a a date? Standing by our husbands through this challenging lifestyle choice is often neglected. Come and remember the blessing of a properly prioritized home.
Many moms feel like they don't have enough patience to home educate their children.

This workshop discusses how the key to raising children who love God is in the heart-to-heart relationship between parent and child, where children are not just trained, but discipled. Take the time to give your children the security of knowing they have your heart. In so doing, you are making it easier for them to freely give their hearts back to their Creator and that is our mission. Catch a vision of how you can reach and hold the heart of your child and build fulfilling family relationships that will be passed on through generations.
Have you ever heard someone say, "All children are gifts from God", only to roll your eyes and think, "Ha! You don't know what goes on at my house!" If you don't look really hard, you may be missing one of God's best gifts to you. Learn how to see your child through God's spectacles and how to stay focused on God's vision of your child - not the world's. Come laugh and be encouraged to see just what God had in mind when He designed your child.
This workshop will help you to determine your child's learning modality, learning styles and their love languages. Although most children can learn in a variety of ways, we all have preferences that can be capitalized on. Knowing these preferences about your child can help you choose curriculum and teach them more effectively. Added bonus is that you'll be able to figure out your own learning/teaching style!

Our children live in the midst of a secular culture and face a host of frightening problems that we never had to deal with at their age. Because they are not prepared to counter our culture, startling percentages of children raised in evangelical homes do not continue in their faith and beliefs into adulthood. For this reason, training our children to develop a strong biblical worldview is one of the most vital things we can do. Teaching them to think biblically about all areas of life equips them to become powerful thinkers, leaders, and communicators. Most importantly, it also gives staying power to their faith as they face opposition. Our goal as Christian homeschoolers must be bigger and broader than turning out kids with exceptional talent and high SAT scores. By incorporating worldview training, we can better equip them to use their gifts to impact the world for Christ, help others by solving real problems, and bring glory to God in the process.
