Keynote Speakers – Saturday May 5, 10:00am

Rick and Lisa Weaver -10:00am

Topic: Essentials to Success in Home Education.

The decision to educate your children at home is a commitment to their future. Are you ready?

Your homeschool day, what curriculum you use and even where you homeschool -maybe a designated room, maybe the couch, or even the car- will all look different. But what is the same across each family is the commitment to your kids. At the end of it all we want our kids to be ready for the future, and ready to take on the world. Every family can be successful in homeschooling we will tell you how.

Featured Speakers

Emily Dyke -11:00pm
Topic: Homeschool Essentialism: The Power Of Doing Less But Better

Essentialism isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. We’ve taken Greg McKeown’s teachings in his book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit Of Less, and applied them to every aspect of homeschooling our 3 kids. Essentialism is more than a time-management strategy or a productivity technique. It’s a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential in our lives and in our homeschooling and then eliminating everything that is not, so that we can make the highest possible contribution toward the things that really matter. This process and journey has been amazing and we want to share with you the principles of Essentialism as well as discuss the benefits and challenges of our experience and how you can make it work for your unique life and homeschool vision and goals.

Caroline Fuerte -1:00pm

Topic: Building a Solid Math Foundation

Who is going to build a house by starting with the walls? Without a solid foundation, those walls may hold up for a bit but eventually will come crashing down. Math is a lot like building a house. We need to start with a strong foundation and build up from there. It doesn’t have to be hard! Come and see how easy it is to teach math.

 Tracy Hilts – 3:00

Topic: Learning to See the Wonder

We live in a world filled with many challenges and assaults on our emotional and relational well being. One way to combat those experiences is to teach ourselves and our children to see the deeper wonder of life. We can intentionally step into awe and appreciation of what life has to offer. In doing so we learn to share the deeper places of our hearts and help our children build a foundation of healthy emotional expression.

 

 

Workshops

 Jenna Tait -2:00

Topic:Family History and the Importance of Primary Source Documents {workshop}

Family history research can feel overwhelming. I will help you make discovering and documenting your family story easy and enjoyable so that you can spend more time living life and making memories. The past is more than pictures in a book or a documentary on Netflix, it’s real and connecting. The best way to bring history alive is to live it with YOUR ancestors.
