Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Getting Started with Home Schooling
Where do I get curriculum? Do I have to make bulletin boards? How do I teach several grades at once? Do I need to have lesson plans and give grades? Lyndsay Lambert, 16-year home school veteran, answers these questions and more as she gives advice to beginning home schoolers.

Home Schooling: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Lyndsay Lambert gives an honest and realistic presentation of home schooling from the perspective of a 16-year veteran and mother of four. Besides discussing the ways that home schooling has blessed their family, she covers some of the problems encountered by home schoolers in this day and age and gives some tips on how to deal with them For the new home schooler, a preview of what to expect For the experienced home educator, a word of encouragement for the tough times.

The Terrible Twos Teens: Preparing for Adolescence
Must the teen years be full of rebellion and turmoil? How you deal with your young child will have a definite impact on the kind of teenager you will have in a few years. There is hope when we follow Biblical principles. Note: Actually, I think these talks are better when separated into two as follows. (If spitting into 2 talks, I would like to do both talks in this order, as they are dependent upon each other.)

The Terrible Twos: Preparing Toddlers for Adolescence
Must the teen years be full of rebellion and turmoil? How you deal with your young child will have a definite impact on the kind of teenager with which you will have to deal. There is hope when we follow Biblical principles.

The Terrible Teens: Dealing with Adolescents
Will home schooling make your teen different? Isnt that the point? Many problems with teens are associated with peer influences. As we home school and strive to raise our children to serve the Lord, we have the opportunity to overcome some of the normal problems of adolescence.

Home School Stress Syndrome
The word burnout evokes images of a final flickering flame, of a charred and empty shelf, of dying embers and cold gray ashes. Ever feel like that? What are the causes of burnout? How can you avoid them? What can you do if you are experiencing symptoms already? Join Lyndsay for a frank discussion of problems home schoolers experience that often make them want to quit.

Courtship, a Viable Alternative
Parents are looking for ways to raise godly children in an ungodly world. Lyndsay Lambert explains how she believes that courtship is one of the different approaches a family can take to reach that goal.

Confessions of an Organizationally Challenged Home School Mom
Not a natural organizer, Lyndsay shares ideas and tips she has learned over the years which have helped keep her home and school from going down the tube because of the mess. After all, with the large families that home schoolers often have, when things go bad, they go bad fast.

Keeping the Peace at Home
How do you deal with conflicts in the home? How can I teach my children how to get along? Lyndsay Lambert discusses scriptural principles as outlined by Peacemaker Ministries that can help you and your children learn how to overlook offences, ask for forgiveness, forgive each other and more--skills that important in the home and all other places for the rest of their lives.

Learning to Love Learning
If you taught a child to read, to write, to work with numbers, trained him in character, and gave him a love of learning, he could then educate himself. Reading, writing, and working with numbers are the tools of learning. Character is important because a lazy child will not put out the effort to educate himself; a proud child will not see the need to seek further learning. The love of learning is necessary for the young person to be motivated. But how does a home school mom communicate that love of learning?

No Money Back; No Guarantee, But the Rewards of Obedience Priceless!
All parents want their children to turn out well, but home schooling parents go the extra mile, they pour their lives into their children, and they sacrifice so much. Home schooling parents deserve to be successful, right? There are many benefits to home educating our children, but there are no guarantees on the future. Lyndsay shares how letting go is hard especially for most home school parents, and she encourages parents to recognize that their children are individuals and that they will have to make their own choices at some time. As homeschooling parents, we must do all that we can do and leave the results in the Lord's hands, remembering that "God has not called us to be successful, but He has called us to be faithful."

Who's on First?
We women are wives, mothers, babysitters, taxi drivers, chief cooks and bottle washers, domestic engineers, etc. now add teacher to that list. How in the world do you get it all done? Join Lyndsay as she takes an honest and realistic look at priorities for the home schooling mom.

What Was I Thinking?
As a home schooling mom, have you ever asked yourself, What was I thinking? Home educators often feel that they do not measure up or worry that they are ruining their children. Lyndsay Lambert, mother of four home school graduates (who are now productive members of society, to the surprise of some!), will share from her heart and experience about what our focus should be during the years that the Lord has given us with our precious children.

Help! I Have Preschoolers!
What? Your child is not reading by the time he is three years old? Your preschooler is unhappy and a distraction when you are busy teaching your older children? Then this workshop is for you! Come to a guilt-free session at which Lyndsay will give you a strong dose of reality, along with some helpful hints about how to help your young children not only survive being a part of a home school family, but thrive!

Lambert's Bio

Lyndsay is married to Tim Lambert. The couple often speak together.
Lyndsay Lambert, a graduate of Texas Tech University, home schooled her four now-grown children for sixteen years. She has assisted Tim, her husband of more than forty years, in serving the home school community, first in helping to start and lead their local support group and then, from 1990 to 2013, in running the Texas Home School Coalition, the statewide organization committed to serving and protecting Texas home schoolers. She retired this year to have more time to be a grandmother to her five grandchildren and to be the “older woman” that she believes God has called her to be.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Lyndsay Lambert 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.
