Presentation Titles & Descriptions

From In Dependence to Independence: Teaching Our Children to Teach Themselves
The responsibility load on homeschooling parents, especially in the early years, can be overwhelming. Mary Ann, a homeschooling mom of 19 years, shares some of the ways their children have experienced independent learning in the homeschool setting, thereby giving all family members some measure of independence. She will explore, with some doses of humor, educational options that have helped them in this realm, record keeping issues, and some of the pitfalls they encountered while dealing with this issue.

College at Home (With her husband Bruce)
Can your children really get a four-year degree for six thousand dollars? Dr. and Mrs. Eagleson present an informative talk on the advantages and pitfalls of home college. Is your child a candidate for a distance learning degree?

Surprises at the End of Homeschooling
Are you just beginning the homeschooling journey? This session is for you, so you can learn in part what is
ahead. Are you halfway through the homeschooling journey? This session is for you, for you may find some help
to press on. Are you done or nearly done? This session is for you, because you are on the verge of some
surprises and maybe you have some to share as well. Come explore some of the delightful and daunting
surprises at the end of homeshooling with Mary Ann as the Eaglesons have now graduated their fourth and
youngest child.

Homeschooling: One of God's Greatest Tools to Shape Us into His Image
When the laundry backs up, and the children's books are missing, and there is conflict in the Co-op, the call to
prayer seems so much more urgent. Mary Ann will candidly and sometimes humorously, share some of the
ways these normal homeschooling moments and homeschooling at large has helped mold the character of
Christ in the Eagleson family.

Around the Year - Creating Christian Family Traditions
"Mom, of all my childhood memories, doing Advent is among my most favorite. You need to share this with other
parents." The Eagleson’s 25 year old son, Nate, reported this to his mother several years ago. He and his three
sisters still love doing Advent. One never knows what a child will bring into their adult world as a special memory,
but the Eaglesons are rejoicing that a memory focused on Jesus is in Nate's top choices, and their daughters
have said the same. In this session, Mary Ann shares how the Eagleson family celebrates Advent and
Christmas, as well as other special events throughout the year. The church calendar, some of the activities and
resources used by the Eaglesons, as well as several thoughts as to how these activities can help us give our
children a rich and enjoyable family legacy centered in the Lord are explored.

“Don’t home college me!”
So pleaded one Eagleson child, but Bruce and Mary Ann did. All four of the Eagleson children have had some
experience in this realm and two have graduated from a fully accredited "home college." The Eaglesons will
share how to save hundreds of thousands of dollars, a model for doing it, and some of the challenges and
blessings of traveling this road. An "Eaglet" or two may be on hand to give you a "bird's eye view"of this
experience. Come hear "The rest of the story!"

Ten (out of countless) Mistakes I've made as a Homeschooling Mom
In this contemplative, yet lighthearted session, Mary Ann shares with candor some of the mistakes she and
Bruce have made over the years of their family’s homeschooling journey, and what lessons God has taught
them. This session is designed for over motivated homeschooling parents who feel like a failure at times and
brings some “good news” despite our capacity to make mistakes.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Mary Ann Eagleson 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.
