The Homeschool Journey: Part 1 “How Do We Decide?
Getting Started Focus
Psalm 127:3 says that “children are a heritage from the Lord...” As parents fulfill their responsibility to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, not every parent’s journey will be the same. This workshop will explore different vantage points for the vision to home educate and the blessings that can come from it. You will hear from long-time home educating families as they share how the Lord guided them on the homeschool journey.

Should We Build More Monuments to Robert E. Lee?
People across our nation are trying to pull down monuments of American history that symbolize to them ideas and practices with which they disagree. This has been going on for quite a few years in academia, textbooks, essays, and other media. Confederate General Robert E. Lee, since his death in 1870, has been considered an exemplar to be admired and emulated. He has become the number one target of the destroyers. How should we address this national iconoclasm?

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.

Responding Biblically to Fear, Worry, and Anxiety
Most of us disguise worry with different terms like, “concerned,” “troubled,” or “bothered.” Worry saps our energy, drains our joy, destroys evangelism, and even aggravates many physical ailments.The Bible is clear that worry is sinful, idolatrous, and a sign of unbelief, and that fear is wrong when it is allowed to motivate thinking and behavior that is unbiblical. You will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple others with the same truths.

The Mystery of History
Mary and Martha Decide to Homeschool (For Mary's Only!)
Let’s pretend that Mary and Martha decide to homeschool. Following their character, Martha would probably have all her plans in place (and be frustrated), and Mary would probably be at the feet of Jesus (and way behind schedule.) We all have a little of Mary and Martha is us, but this workshop is designed to encourage Mary’s who love the Lord and their children, but need help!

Live to Love With Jesus
Experience freedom and joy in satisfying relationships as you learn the difference between a counterfeit love and Jesus’ love, two hindrances to the flow of love, and God’s provision for establishing loving relationships. Everyone wants the homeschooling experience to be satisfying and enjoyable. However, parents and children can unknowingly make idols out of homeschooling and relationships which always results in control and disappointment. You’ll be encouraged as you hear how to live to love with Jesus.

Family Life - Raising Disciples, Not Just Believers
Raising up followers of Jesus is a noble calling for parents. The first twenty years of our children’s lives are the most important in terms of a parent’s investment. But all investments require a strategy, careful planning, and detailed execution. Enabling and encouraging our children to follow Jesus is our most important mission as parents. As a former home schooling father of three home school graduates, Kirk reflects on how he and his wife Marian purposed to accomplish that mission.

Satan loves a soft target—and parents who believe homeschooling is “the” way to keep their kids on the straight and narrow often fall victim to the very thing they are trying to avoid.

Off the Bench: Overcoming Fear and Finding Your Voice
Fear. It’s a driving force in the culture today—and yet—God’s Word teaches us that fear is a spirit. “God did not give us a spirit of fear,” so why are we so afraid? For most of her life, Heidi St. John struggled with fear and anxiety on a daily basis. In this hour-long session, she’ll share her story of finding her God-given voice and explain how our weaknesses can be used for God’s glory. From fears about homeschooling to fears about the culture, God says, “I am on the throne! Do not fear!”

To love their husbands, love their children, and take care of their homes. Is that even relevant today? Come and discover the timeless truths from God’s Word about our biblical role as women.

Entertainment: The Most Powerful Teaching Tool
Entertainment. We are constantly exposed to it and affected by it in ways we don’t even begin to comprehend. How does a Christ follower navigate this treacherous realm, much less use it as a platform to advance God’s Kingdom? How does one biblically prepare one’s children to enter a world where entertainment has become the most effective teaching tool to draw us away from God? Vileness is rampant; how do we prepare this generation to “put nothing evil before our eyes” as the Psalmist says?

He populated this world with people who are "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14); and more than that, we are His workmanship, His craftmanship, created for a purpose.

How to Tour a Museum like a Christian
Christians can’t check their brains at the door upon entering a museum. Historian Bill Potter of Landmark Events has developed strategies for applying a Christian worldview to analyze the messages that museum displays are designed to communicate. If your faith has no practical application for interpreting the past, you will be more easily manipulated by the evolutionary or revolutionary agenda most museums promote.

Responding Biblically to Anger
Anger is a God given emotion that we all experience from time to time. The problem is that our human natures have the tendency to be angry in a sinful way. Anger may characterize how we respond to certain triggers, but anger itself doesn’t control us, the evil desires within us do. We were created in the image of God with the capacity to be angry in a righteous way. You will discover how to respond biblically to anger and also learn how to disciple others with the same truths.

Thirteen years ago the Haller family chose a classical approach with their children (now ages 20, 18, 16,14, & 9) to apply the ways of God over the tempting trends of this world. Hear from almost all of the Haller family to glean perspectives of both parents and a broad range of students.

American’s Greatest Sin—It’s Not What You Think
What is our nation’s greatest sin? Is it the horror of abortion, adultery, homosexuality, pornography, fornication, or blasphemy? You may be surprised that it’s none of these things. There is one sin that most Christians could hardly identify—let alone define, and it is the catalyst for all these sins...and it’s not unbelief.

An A to Z Guide For Character-Healthy Homeschooling
If we homeschool simply to achieve high academic marks, we are squandering the opportunity to influence our children for Christ. Character healthy leaders are those children who have learned to elevate virtues above feelings. If we spend our homeschooling hours simply on academics and activities, we may win the praise of man, but we risk losing the hearts of our children. In our few short years with our children we must focus on the first things first and character is always the first thing!

How to Parent without Provoking Children to Anger
Does your child have a comeback for everything you tell him to do or always try and get the last word, even if it’s mumbled under his breath? Does he become mad and lose control when you discipline him rather than repenting? Or does he seem indifferent, giving the impression that discipline doesn’t faze him in the least? Through biblical insights and powerful drama, learn how to avoid the snares of parent-provoked anger and raise emotionally healthy children.
