Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Educating the WholeHearted Child: Living and Learning at Home by God’s Design
Since 1994, Educating the WholeHearted Child has helped countless families see their home in a new light—not just as a place where homeschooling happens, but as the tool by which God designed children to live and learn. Clay will explain how the WholeHearted Learning model works, and how it can liberate learning in your home to be as natural a part of life as God intended it to be.

Path of Life Parenting: Showing Your Children the Way to Go, and to God
We have lost sight of a powerful metaphor that guided godly parents in the Old Testament—the path of life. Clay draws on Proverbs and other scriptures to help parents see themselves as walking with their children on God’s path of life, giving them direction, correction, and protection

Organic Parenting: Preparing the Soil of Your Child’s Heart for Spiritual Growth
Come take a paradigm-shifting look at the Parable of the Sower and the role of a parent in preparing the soil of a child’s heart to receive the seed of the gospel. “Organic” parenting is the God-designed, natural, way-of-life parenting patterns and practices that prepare a child’s heart for God’s truth.

Keeping Faith in the Family: Nurture, Discipleship, and Instruction at Home
Clay explains how to faithfully build a true “Christian home” through biblical nurture (shepherding your child’s spirit to long for God), discipleship (shaping your child’s heart to live for God), and instruction (strengthening your child’s mind to learn for God).

Disciplinology 101: Following God's Path of Life to the Heart of Your Child
Clay leads you into a fresh and fully biblical approach to childhood discipline based on the OT metaphor of God’s path, or way, of life. This session includes personal and practical insights about childhood discipline as the biblical process of direction, correction, and protection.

Kids Under Instruction: Never At a Loss for the Word at Home
Clay presents biblical principles for parents on instructing their children in the Lord. This session includes Scriptures and personal examples about teaching at home, practical models for Bible-centered family devotions, and insights about teaching and learning styles.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Clay Clarkson 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.
