The Disciple-Making Parent: Raising Your Children to Love and Follow Jesus Christ
The reason we started homeschooling was to disciple our children. Unfortunately, we can become so busy educating them that we forget to disciple them. In our time together, we will think about: why young people walk away from the faith, why they stay, and what we as parents should focus on. Come learn how to keep the main thing the main thing.
Gospel Truths That Homeschoolers Forget
We believe in the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. So why do so many of our homeschools not reflect that gospel? Why having started in the Spirit, are we now homeschooling in the flesh? Come be reminded of the gospel truths we forget. You will leave encouraged!
Raising Children to Be Courageous Communicators for Christ
We live in a culture growing increasingly hostile to Christianity. But God can use our words to affect minds and hearts. Come learn about the power of apologetics and worldview in the life of your family and how to raise confident, courageous communicators who will make a difference in the world.
