Most of the boyfriend/girlfriend relationships we see today do not match the type of relationship needed to translate into a successful marriage. Dating, the way it usually takes place today, is nothing more than divorce practice for marriage. If a person really loves his/her future spouse, then certainly that person would not want to conduct any relationships prior to marriage in a way that would cause them problems after their wedding.

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.

When Joe Tyler's wife, Zan, recommended homeschooling in 1984, he thought she was crazy. Too often Joe has seen homeschoolers put their teenagers in school and have denied themselves the great payback of seeing their sons become men and their daughters become the women God calls them to be. In this session, Joe shares the highs and lows of homeschooling in high school and the many ways a dad can help launch his sons and daughters into adulthood.

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.

When Does Homeschooling Really Begin?
Homeschooling starts at birth! Jan Bedell, PhD, M ND, will share tips that maximize those everyday teachable moments with your child from birth to four-years old. All too often these pivotal years are not considered "homeschool" years, when, in fact, every hour you spend specifically working with your preschool child, will save you five hours or more in later years! Using this training, developmental milestones can be easily reached and chances of learning difficulties can be greatly reduced.

The book of Genesis comes under more attack than any other book in the Bible. Specifically, the accounts of creation, original sin, and the global flood are at the forefront. It's understandable that secularists would criticize it because it stands squarely in the path of their evolutionary views. However, much more troubling is the question of why so many Christians dilute the Bible here!

Family Unity Through Traditions and Fun!
Fun isn't always spontaneous, sometimes it needs to be planned. As homeschool families, our kids spend a lot of time with each other. This both creates deeper relationships and can also ignite some, shall we say, conflict. Intentionally planning opportunities for fun creates family bonds that help to allay tension and create lasting memories. Whether you are looking to add more unity among your family members or a few new traditions to your holidays, this workshop will not disappoint.

Time: 5:00 pm
Room: Ballroom G sponsored by WORLD

In 1984, the State Superintendent of Education told Zan Tyler that he could have her put in jail for homeschooling her son. Zan knew this was no idle threat. The shock and fear that riveted her and the imminent threat of being jailed forced her to count the costs of homeschooling and decide if it was really worth it. Zan learned some powerful lessons about fighting for freedom, family, and faith that remain pertinent today. Come to this session to be encouraged and equipped with powerful principles to share with your children and teens.
