Session 1: Friday Night
How to Establish Peace and Order in Your Home
It's almost impossible to learn or teach anything in the midst of chaos! How do you get your children to do those math problems or get their chores done? In order to successfully educate your children at home, there has to be some peace and order. But how do we rightly and effectively discipline our children? How do we establish a well ordered home? In this session, we will discuss some biblical, practical strategies for creating peace and order in your home.
Session 2: Saturday Morning [for parents]
10 Essentials for Discipling Your Children
Most believers I have talked to say they have not been discipled. In other words, no one took the time to systematically teach them how to love God and what it means to follow Jesus. Our ultimate goal as home educators and parents is to raise passionate followers of Jesus Christ. In this session, we will discuss ten essential principles and skills for helping our children follow Jesus!
Session 3: Saturday Night
Raising Lifelong Learners
You will not be able to impart all the facts and teach all the skills your children will need for life before they leave your home! But you can give them the skills needed to be a lifelong learner. Do your children know how to find, understand, evaluate and synthesize information? We will discuss How to Read a Book by Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren. This session will help you release your children into life with confidence that they can learn anything and everything necessary for success!
Session 4: Sunday Morning
Finding the Super-Power You Need to Raise a Godly Family
Have you run out of gas? Blown a fuse? Have you been tempted to quit? Have you tried and tried to do things right and can’t seem to get a grip? Home education and raising a godly family are hard. Actually, they are impossible to accomplish in our own power. This session will help you discover (or rediscover) how to tap into the power we have in Christ to do all he has called us to do!
