Creating an Intentional Family Culture
Are you ready to break free from the hurry and see your household transformed as the frustration and common behavior issues lessen? It's remarkable what happens when we confidently cut out the excess in our lives so that space can be made for what matters most. Brandi will share how she and Dan have come to make decisions in their family, and about the rhythms they've put in place so that what is most important naturally takes place.

Building A Good Conscience in Your Child
What the Bible calls “a good conscience” is vital for our children to form in their youth. Parents can strengthen the conscience, so a child grows into an adult of strong convictions and is compelled from within away from sinful living and towards righteous choices, even when parents are not present. Let’s make one of the goals of our instruction “a good conscience” (as 1 Timothy 1:5 mentions). A practical plan for achieving this is the subject of this workshop.

Parenting on Purpose
Reaching the Heart of Your Child
Based on Ginger’s best-selling book, Don’t Make Me Count to Three! There is far more to parenting than getting children to “act” right. We have to get them to “think” right and to be motivated out of a love of virtue rather than a fear of punishment. Ginger equips parents to reach past the outward behavior of their children and address the issues of the heart. Move beyond the frustrations of not knowing how to handle issues of disobedience and into a confident approach to raising your children.

We can often forget about the value of a training ground outside of the home.

But How Will I Teach Them to Read?
Reading is the foundation of every subject we teach. Before moving on to history, science, or literature, a child must first be able read. We all understand this truth, but it’s intimidating to many homeschool parents. The rules of phonics, mastering letter sounds, understanding the plethora of exceptions in the English language ... all these things make many of us throw up our hands in frustration. Guiding Reading is an effective, research-based alternative to traditional phonics-based programs, that has been widely adopted in both public and private education. Are you worried about teaching your child to read? Maybe you’ve even considered sending your kids to school until they've learned to read? If so, come learn about this highly effective approach, and an exciting scripture-based program that utilizes the Guided Reading method.

50 Core American Documents: A Primary Document Education in History and Government
Too many children in modern-day America are not properly educated about our nation's rich history and legacy of freedom. We invite students to consider the American experiment in self-government as a triumph that warrants celebration, but also demands serious study. The use of primary sources allows students to see history through the eyes of their ancestors and, in turn, make their own judgments. At this workshop, we will present a teaching demo and discuss our free history curriculum.

Cultivating a Faith That Speaks
In a time when voices of faith are being silenced, Christians have a wonderful opportunity. Psalm 107:2 says, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.” It’s God’s desire that as His children, we would engage every corner of the culture—stepping out in faith, away from the comfort of our churches and bringing the hope of Jesus to a generation in moral, emotional and spiritual crisis.

Dennis has led over a dozen short- term missions trips into Mexico and other nations, showing how to minister cross-culturally and even communicate in significant ways with people whose language you do not and cannot speak. Should your children or your family go on such a trip? How can you prepare them? Not everyone is meant to be a missionary, but we can all form a heart for the peoples of the world and use our gifts to serve them.
