Parenting Pre-Teens
Studies of kids from Christian homes indicate that those who leave the faith later, very frequently traced their doubts and conflicts to their middle school years. The pre-teen ages are critical not only for faith in God but for all kinds of relationships - and we parents often don't realize how important these years are! Get a handle on the challenges of the pre- and early adolescent years, and lay a foundation to make the teen years GREAT.

For generations fathers have done the best they could with what they had. What many men didn't have was vision for what to do with their sons. This session may have a generational effect as fathers learn how to help their sons transition from boyhood to manhood. This message also explains why many in this generation struggle in marriage and parenting.

Mom, Don't Make Me Think - Just Tell Me The Answer
As a teacher, it's so easy to give the answer, isn't it? Oh, that's right... you don't do that. How long do you allow a child to think before you start helping them? Sometimes we need to be quiet and let them wrestle with the problem to discover the answer. Do you know that children will learn better and remember things longer when they discover the solution? The goal is to provide a way for them to learn how to solve problems. How might you go about doing this?

Spiritual Warfare: Fighting for Your Family
Choosing to homeschool does not exempt us from spiritual warfare; instead it puts our families on the front line. With over 80% of evangelical Christian young people leaving their faith when they leave home, never to return, something is wrong in our tactics in fighting the enemy. Ignore an enemy and he will defeat you. Underestimate an enemy and he will defeat you. The good news is that we can live in victory! God gives us all the weapons and strategy we need to prepare our children for the spiritual battles to come. Trained as a military warrior, Chuck offers insight, training, and strategies for not only surviving the battle, but also advancing the kingdom through spiritual warfare.

Responding Biblically to Fear, Worry, and Anxiety
Are you often worried or concerned, troubled, or bothered? Regardless of the term used, worry saps our energy, drains our joy, and even aggravates many physical ailments. The Bible teaches that worry is sinful and a sign of unbelief, and that fear is wrong when it is allowed to motivate thinking and behavior that is unbiblical. In this workshop, you will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple your children with the same truths.

How to Simplify Your Homeschooling
Homeschool families tend to bite off more than they can chew when it comes to curriculum choices. We fall in love with all the "shiny and fun" curriculum without coming up with a game plan for how to implement it all. Often times, we need to simplify what we are doing and even (gasp) ditch a little curriculum here and there. This practical workshop is filled with creative ideas on how to supplement what you are already doing and easily plan out a simpler homeschool year.

Parenting. It's exhausting and exhilarating, frustrating and fascinating. Like all things that are God-breathed, it's a Kingdom-building exercise. It's a masterful strategy, this idea of using all night feedings, miscarriage and labor, teenagers (see how teens and labor go hand in hand?), and even homeschooling to teach us to trust the heart the Father. But that's exactly what God wants you to learn to do.

Parenting. It's exhausting and exhilarating, frustrating and fascinating. Like all things that are God-breathed, it's a Kingdom-building exercise. It's a masterful strategy, this idea of using all night feedings, miscarriage and labor, teenagers (see how teens and labor go hand in hand?), and even homeschooling to teach us to trust the heart the Father. But that's exactly what God wants you to learn to do.

Teach the Child, Not the Curriculum
Sometimes we get so focused on the checkboxes that we lose sight of the child. It’s time for a fresh look at your goal and some practical help (and permission) to make the curriculum your servant, not your master. Discover what you can change in your learning environment, materials, and approach in order to teach your child more effectively. Sonya includes details and examples of how she has adjusted Charlotte Mason teaching methods for her daughter with autism.
