Homeschooling can seem daunting without God’s perspective, especially when looking at the teen years.

What are some of the things you need to know to homeschool through these years with success? Come hear how Dawna shares God’s perspective and wisdom to help override the challenges and obstacles that are sure to come.

The Journey Is the Destination:
The Reason We Homeschool

It’s natural to stress out about “doing it right.” We’re talking about our kid’s lives, right? However, there is much more on the line than we think. We cannot sacrifice the character and heart of our children—nor our relationship with them—for the sake of mere academics. If we want to have strong healthy families that raise strong healthy families, we need to shift our thinking to something more important than graduation.

 

 

Be a Student of your Student

When we set out to teach our children, we search the best way we can to pass information to them.

In Be a Student of Your Student we will look at the various learning styles and teaching styles and how you can navigate these dynamics to engage your children in the richest learning experience possible.

 

 

Different Seasons: Life after Graduation

Mom and Dad, what happens when your child (or children) graduates? Many parents can be left with an empty nest and empty hearts, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Even when your kids are off on their own adventure your life can be full of purpose and meaning. And to new families, just starting this grand journey, finding one of these couples is like finding a vast and hidden treasure.

Okay Dad, are you ready to lead your family?
