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.

It comes as a surprise - it surprised us! - but your child's years from 9 to 12 can be some of the most challenging in your life as a parent. Long before you see peach fuzz on the chin or changes in body shape, you have to cope with their distractedness, tears, outbursts of anger and the "nobody loves me" blues. Somebody's got to be the adult around here, so learn how to survive these years -- and make the teen years something to look forward to, not dread!

You're still committed to homeschooling the children - that resolve hasn't changed. But you've changed. You can live in a way that honors God even while you're depressed. And there are well-trodden pathways out of that wilderness. You just need help seeing them again. Come for the encouragement.

Speaker: Sherri Seligson
Time: 3:00 pm
Room: Salon GH

Our world is filled with words. Whether we are reading them, writing them, or instructing with them, they are our tools to build stories, create emotions, and make connections. Yet we need to be aware that words have the power to build or to destroy, especially when we speak them to our children, causing them to stumble or to soar! Our words need to be crafted carefully and gently but firmly shared. This is how we can engage others and train up our children. Let's contemplate not only the power of our words, but how we can boldly use them.

Why the 20's Generation Will Change the Church and Culture
Speaker: Ken Ham
Time: 4:30 pm
Room: Pinnacle Ballroom

Statistical research shows that approximately two-thirds of young people in America are leaving the church by the time they reach college age-with very few returning. In this keynote session, Ken Ham looks at data published in the book, Already Gone. Millennials who currently attend church are going to be the voice of the Church in the future, and we need to do something before we lose another generation. By taking a strong stand on biblical authority, rooting out compromise, and teaching apologetics, we can reclaim lost and coming generations for Christ.

News Content in the Homeschooling Environment
Speaker: Jonathan Woods
Time: 6:30 pm
Room: Salon GH

Does consistent exposure to news content improve the homeschooling environment? Do homeschoolers need regular media access? Today’s world inundates us with information on a daily basis. Social media, television, radio, and podcasts bombard the mind with as many as a thousand unique messages per day. How do we filter these messages, analyze their content, and evaluate their significance? At each developmental stage, a student’s brain processes information in new ways, creating contexts that guide current and future decision-making. These critical cognitive abilities are vital to your homeschooler’s personal and professional success. This session demonstrates the value of strategic media access at each age level of the homeschooling experience. Jonathan will offer tools for the integration of news content into the daily homeschooling experience that will increase the student’s critical and communicative abilities and facilitate opportunities for influence.

When you say, "homeschooling," someone will inevitably ask, "What about socialization?" Why have we come to believe that children need large quantities of time with peers their age to be able to function in life? Where did the theory of social education orginate? This presentation traces the history of the founders of government education and explains why schools promote the idea of "socialization" as a necessary means of creating "good citizens." Learn more in this fascinating workshop.

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.

Defending the Christian Faith in Today's World
Speaker: Ken Ham
Time: 1:00 pm

Many people have the idea the battle between Christianity and humanism (or creation and evolution) is a battle over who has more "facts." However, the real battle is actually over the interpretation of the same facts. Until Christians understand that everyone has the same facts, but different interpretations of those facts (based upon different presuppositions or biases), they will not be successful in learning how to defend the Christian faith and think in a true Biblical manner. It's very possible you will never think the same way about this world after attending this keynote!

Spiders!
Speaker: Mr. Mike Snavely
Time: 3:00 pm

While most people's negative reaction to spiders is understandable, those willing to suspend their disgust long enough for a closer look will discover a hidden world of incredible design! Not only do spiders benefit us by consuming massive quantities of insect pests, they do so using ingenious tactics. Some hunt and pounce, others build traps and wait. Many are cleverly disguised or camouflaged. They can spin up to six different kinds of silk for various purposes, each a marvel of engineering!

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.

Most evangelistic programs today—and most missionaries and evangelists—do not see Genesis as a key part in reaching people with the Gospel. In these times, however, an understanding of the history in Genesis (e.g. the origin of sin) is foundational to a full understanding of the Gospel message. Realizing how our culture now thinks (and has changed in its thinking) in relation to earth history is a key to know how people should be approached in presenting the Gospel!

Most parents place a high value on the education they can give to their children. It prepares them for life and gives them hope for a happy future. In the old days, the three R’s of schooling included reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithematic. Is homeschooling succeeding because it is reclaiming the tried and true educational philosophy or is something else going on? In this workshop, Davis presents a compelling case for you to believe in the power of homeschooling and six new R’s to back it up.

The brain controls everything that you do, so no matter what your IQ, it is essential to have a well-organized and high processing brain to take advantage of all that intelligence. It could mean the difference in having a great computer that was connected to high speed internet instead of dial-up. The function is incredibly different even though the intelligence of the computer didn't change at all.

Speaker: Dennis Gundersen

There are no perfect Biblical fathers. All had flaws, but some were still regarded as faithful. Abraham is called the father of all who believe, even though he's far from a model of perfection. Just like Abraham, you can be a faithful father to your children, despite the flaws. A man needs to know his calling from God, be willing to sacrifice for it, and have patient faith through trials.
