Workshops from Brook Wayne ( may vary by event location )
Handfuls of Treasure: Embracing Busy Family Life
Spelling, Arithmetic, Reading, Dishes, Diapers, Laundry, Cooking....the list goes on and on! Homeschooling mothers wear so many hats. Busy family life can threaten to steal the realization that our hands are holding, guiding and directing eternal souls. This session focuses on recognizing treasure, laying it up in heaven, and loving the family God has given us.
Teaching Several Grades at Once
Teaching several grade levels all together can seem daunting. However, what might at first appear to be overwhelming can be turned into an asset in your homeschool. Let's look together at planning ahead, group teaching, leading older children in sharing knowledge (and boundaries for this approach), and ideas that bring the family together.
Encouragement for Young Moms
Training a child sounds a lot easier on paper than lived out in real life. Brook Wayne provides practical ways to train children, inspiring listening skills, initiating meaningful conversations, and gently guiding a child's heart when correction is needed.

Homeschooling Without Losing Your Mind
