Before You Begin: Learning Styles and Love Languages
Focused and driven or scattered and apathetic? Tidy or a train wreck? Expressive? Solitary? Persnickety? One of the benefits of home education is seeing the ‘student’ as an individual of special value and gifts, but how do we make sense of our kids when often we don’t even understand ourselves? Explore two of the keys essential to unlocking your child’s bent. Utilizing the principles of Cynthia Tobias and Gary Chapman, learn how to take stock of yourself and your child so you can more effectively love them and teach them.

Before You Begin: Teaching Approaches and Curriculum Options
The experts are many and the bookshelves are stacked! Let’s make some sense of the many options home schooling families have. Before you plunk down your cash, it’s wise to investigate the most common teaching approaches and curricula options so you can have a enhanced picture of what best fits your child, your lifestyle, and your vision.

Love Every Minute, Educate Every Day, Learn for a Lifetime
Home Education is so much more than curriculum, test scores, or lessons. Before you get started let’s discover why homeschooling is the perfect fit for developing Christcentered, people-serving, life-long learners. We’ll cover the basics of fostering a lifelong-learner attitude in your child and discuss practical tips to help you focus on the important (not the urgent) so your children will be successful and you can avoid burnout.

PLAN Successfully
Before we begin any endeavor, we are admonished to seek the Lord and count the cost. Sometimes that’s easier said than done so we’ll explore how to PLAN. Pray to the Lord for purpose, guidance, and direction. Learn as much as you can about homeschooling (sources of info, books/people/history). Analyze your family dynamics/needs/traits and your child’s strengths/weaknesses/etc. Nurture relationship with God/with family members. ‘Successfully PLAN’ before you make any ‘school plan’.

Rules of the Road for Relationships (with Joy Nuesken)
Life really can be compared to a highway. When children are young, parents are in charge and make all of the decisions; it’s like taking a scenic drive on a sunny autumn day with just a few hills to surmount. The high school years usually seems like the German autobahn! Life starts changing ‘fast and furious’ and it’s up to parents to learn how to downshift and change gears. High school is all about becoming a mentor to your students and putting them in the driver’s seat of their own education. Come hear how these moms have been led by God to grow into adult relationships with their kids.

Patterns for Planning and Paperwork
From start to finish, custom-fitting high school to your student can seem daunting, but is central to successfully educating your teen. Foundational is a typical course of study tailored to your child’s unique, God-given shape. Learn how important it is to fit high school to the interests and strengths of your teen. Uncover how to turn everyday activities into “credits.” Investigate how to best utilize the resources in your community. Explore how to end up with a transcript that truly reflects your student’s one-of-a-kind style. Discover the pattern for homeschooling your high schooler.

Why I Do What We Do
Home Education is so much more than curriculum, test scores, and lessons. Let’s discover why homeschooling is the perfect fit for developing Christ-centered people. We’ll cover the basics of fostering a lifelong-learner attitude in your child and discuss practical tips to help you focus on the important (not the urgent), so your children will be successful and you will avoid burnout. Whether you’re just getting started or have several years of homeschooling behind you, Jeannie wants to share with you her struggles and successes, heartaches and highfives, so you can be encouraged to complete the work God has begun in you.
