All too often the lessons are finished, the books read, and the frogs dissected, but what priority does the principal have? When does he have time with his favorite teacher? When is the last time there was a principal-teacher meeting (AKA date)? Standing by our husbands through this challenging lifestyle choice is often neglected.

Our work as homeschooling mothers has tremendous eternal significance- we are truly building God’s Kingdom one family at a time. By developing strong families and rich relationships, helping our children discover their gifts and callings in life, and providing stimulating academics with a Biblical worldview, we are raising children, who, by God’s grace, can change the world for His glory.
Grandparents and parents– this workshop will present an amazing array of practical, creative, hands-on ideas to help grandparents deepen their relationships with their grandchildren (and give parents some much needed help!) by actively engaging the grandparents in the family’s home education adventure- whether they live locally or long-distance.
Every so often we need to stop and consider, eliminate the clutter, and focus on what’s most important in life.

You will walk away from this workshop with wonderful ideas to implement into your family schedule.

Jeannie homeschooled her oldest child from start to finish, helping her garner early acceptance to the University of Georgia on scholarship, where she is now on the Dean’s List. As Jeannie navigated the open seas of college admissions, she learned what colleges want and how to make a homeschooler an appealing college applicant.
