Bible Based Homeschooling: Building a Firm Foundation
I have often said that I don't care if my children know all the math and science in the world. If they don't know God, then I haven't done my job. What good is it to acquire knowledge without first having godly wisdom? What does it matter to be successful in the world's eyes, but not God's?

What Gifted Kids Really Need
We may hope our kids will be really smart, but what do you do when they are? It can be intimidating to think about meeting the needs of a kid who’s blowing the curve, racing ahead, and seems to need more. Can you really meet his needs or would he be better off with professionals? How can you help him fit in socially? What about the future – should he graduate early or on time?

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.

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.

Reset for Parents
Raising a prodigal is every Christian parent’s worst nightmare. Horrifyingly, George Barna contends that over 60 percent of Christian kids will run off to university and "lose their faith." But there is great news! Your child doesn't have to become a statistic. Your child can become an adult who loves the Lord the same way you do - but this will likely require a radical parenting reset on your part.

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.

A Plan for Healthy Parenting (and it’s not about food, oils, or anything organic
I don’t even have a write up for this…but the idea is parenting the fine line between over controlling and non-protecting. We’ve swing back and forth from trying to control every aspect of their growing up…wanting to protect them from all the crud we experienced….to allowing influences into their lives that lead them down some ugly paths. I hate the word, ‘balance’ but there is a “healthy” approach to parenting that allows God to work and keeps Satan at bay. That’s what we’re going to talk about

Mommy, How Do We Know the Bible Is True?
If we want our children to be lifelong disciples of Jesus, they need to understand that Christianity is not a blind faith. We have solid reasons for believing the Bible truly is the Word of God, but how can we help our children understand this in the elementary years? In this session, we will examine the reliability of Scripture and discuss developmentally appropriate ways in which to present this information to our children.

If We Intend for Them to Comprehend – Primary Grades
Reading is only calling words until children comprehend yet reading programs only provide questions at the end of a reading selection. These questions don’t teach comprehension they only test comprehension for that text. Through this workshop, parents will encounter a guide to explicit instruction needed to promote learning the thought processes needed to approach comprehend throughout a lifetime. The Comprehension Kids are supplemental components that are usable within any reading curriculum

Guilt is a gift from God and is designed to direct us toward Him. Unfortunately, many Christians do not respond biblically to guilt and end up repeating the same sinful habits over and over. Many times, unresolved guilt snowballs into other sins like worry, anxiety, depression, or sinful anger. In this workshop, you will learn how to respond biblically to guilt and shame and how to disciple others with the same truths.

Children need to hear the beating of our hearts not the beating of our voices. Rules can change behavior, but they can’t change the heart. Discipline is needed for disobedience, but not without mercy. As each day begins with compassion, children will feel safe to admit their faults and seek help from those they love. It is love, not fear, and grace, not law, which redeems. Join Mark as he shares a true story and unforgettable lesson that you don’t become a shepherd just because you own sheep.

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.
