Session 1

Break-out Sessions

Option 1

The History of Homeschool in Wisconsin Q &A with Jim Wright It is imperative that we not allow government to take control of our children’s education. Let’s discuss the events that God orchestrated that led to the Home School Bill in Wisconsin. I hope to encourage families to carry forward the battle, remembering that it is not our making but God’s!

Option 2

Fossils: Teaching Creation Science is Crucial to Christian Education with Russ Hanson How does the fossil record compare to the Bible? It is crucial for your students to understand how to interpret the fossil record Biblically and scientifically. Dig deeper into this topic with me!

Option 3

Homeschooling through the Generations with Dinah Overlien/Diane Schlender As grandparents, how do we support our children and grandchildren on this homeschooling adventure? Let’s talk about practical ways we can reach across the generations!

Option 4

Homeschooling Freedom and Flexibility with Patti Smith When we embrace the freedom found in homeschooling and the benefits realized by everyone in the home, you will never again be tempted to return to a public school model for educating your children.

Session 2

Break-out Sessions

Option 1

Raising Boys to be Godly Men with Micheleen Cook This session will take an in-depth look at the life of David and other men of the Bible in order to understand what godliness looks like in everyday life. One thing is for sure, godliness does not mean perfection (especially perfect behavior). King David was far from perfect, but he was known to be a man after God’s heart. What was it that made David di erent? What tools do parents have to help guide their son(s) into godliness? Join me to find out.

Option 2

The Home Educating Journey: Moving from Fear to Faith with Amy Vande Hei In this session, we will explore how God ultimately is our child’s educator. We will look at how freeing it is to step back and watch Him working in our lives. We become His facilitators and ambassadors, learning and growing alongside our children, riding on faith instead of operating out of fear.

Option 3

Homeschooling a Large Family with Penny Wilkosz With a large family, comes many unique circumstances. I will share my 30+ year journey and experiences of homeschooling nine children with many more years to come!

Option 4

What’s a dad to do? A Father’s Role in Homeschool with James Dyer So, you’ve decided to homeschool the kids or maybe you’ve decided to let your wife homeschool the kids. What does your role, expectation and participation look like anyway? Well, let’s talk about that!

Break-out Sessions

Option 1

Struggling Readers: The Missing Key that Unlocked the Door with Courtney Haggard Coming from personal experience, I will share how my 4th grader went from a primer reading level to a 2nd grade reading level in 6 months and how he continues to make improvements each day. I will give practical methods that are fun and rewarding to both the parent and child. You will leave with a list of resources, methods and tools that you can put into practice immediately. I am excited to share how I went from pulling my hair out to being given hope on a silver platter.

Option 2

Keeping Faith at the Center of Homeschooling with Laurie Hanson Deuteronomy 6:7 challenges us to teach our children about the Lord throughout the day. How do we do this while we give them an education that will prepare them for their future calling? I will share tools and methods we used to equip our quiver full of arrows to stand in faith.

Option 3

Why am I Homeschooling? with Gayle Hoege Getting through some of the tough times of teaching, friendships and socializing will be easier if you know why you are doing what you do.

Option 4

What’s the most important thing a mother will do for her children? with Ann Dyer What if I am overwhelmed and busy but missing the most important part of homeschooling? Come and be refreshed. Titus 2: “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to ”

love their children

Shakespeare = Fun for Kids with Courtney Haggard Come experience the Bard and discover who he was, words he created, how easy it is to learn lines from his plays, and what it can do to your brain and vocabulary and that of your children.
