Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Homeschooling at the Speed of Life
Life moves fast, and we all struggle to find balance and order in our homes and homeschooling. Ten "time minders" that help us get organized, with lots of encouragement and emphasis on the ability of ANY Mom to achieve balance in getting it all done. A new way of looking at organization with Marilyn's definition of organization from a biblical foundation.

Clutter, Clutter Everywhere and Not a Spot to Think
Clutter in our homes and lives is one of the biggest deterrents to our homeschools. We must deal with it before we can be most effective in our homes. Clutter strangles our lives in numerous ways physically, aesthetically, emotionally, and spiritually. Practical workshop how to rid your home of clutter and simplify your life. Come prepared to clean a closet mentally so you can take that information home and use it.

Teaching Children Life Skills
How can we teach our children to clean their rooms and other impossible tasks? Teaching "life skills" and the skill of organization. Helping children set goals, finish projects, remember important things, and take responsibility for their own activities. Why it is important for their futures and how to do it. Applies to all age children but with an emphasis on starting them out when they are young.

Paper by the Pile
Help! I'm drowning in paper in this supposedly "paperless" computer world! I'm on everyone's mailing list! What paper do I keep, and what do I toss? Learn to make wise decisions about paper and what records to keep. Learn how to use Marilyn's unique and simple F SHARP system to control paper coming into your home, and set up her unique Archive for paper. Freebie forms available for attendees to workshop.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Marilyn Rockett 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.
