A Time of Encouragement —The "God Is Faithful" Message!
As a motivational speaker, “Coach Rick” Andreassen has been encouraging homeschool parents nationwide for the past 13 years. His prayer and goal is that the Lord would inspire, encourage and revitalize every parent, wherever they are on their homeschool journey. Whether you are a first-time homeschooler or a seasoned veteran, you are welcome to come and be encouraged!

He will encourage, equip, and inspire parents.

About the Heart of a Child.” His passion and enthusiasm to encourage homeschool parents will make this one workshop you don’t want to miss! Come and be refreshed, revitalized and encouraged!

Ministering to the Heart of a Leader
Some trust in chariots and some trust in horses...but Godly Leaders trust in the name of the Lord our God! Coach Rick’s passion to encourage leaders has been forged through the 26 years of experience (and many mistakes) as a leader that has influenced thousands throughout our Country! This workshop is broken down into the top three areas of leadership: Your Calling, Your Ministry, and Your Personal Life...and the struggle we all face to keep them in balance! Whether you are a Support Group Leader, Pastor, CEO, or Parent...we have all been called to lead.

Time-Tested Techniques of Positive Discipline and Self-Esteem Building
Do you struggle with discipline? You are not alone! Do you sometimes struggle with balancing loving encouragement, yet correction and boundaries? You are not alone! This workshop is designed to inspire, encourage, and equip parents with some time-tested techniques on finding the balance between loving yet firm in parenting. Available at this workshop will be Coach Rick’s helpful booklet “Tools for Your Homeschooling Toolbelt.”

God Is Faithful: Finish Strong
God has called you — and He will equip you! It is not our ability, but our availability to God. Kids are 25 percent of our population, but 100 percent of our future. You are molding and shaping their destiny. Trust God — He will do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all you could ever hope or imagine. Coach Rick’s ultimate prayer is to encourage, encourage and encourage some more.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Rick Andreassen and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
