Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Real Life + Real Books = Real Education
Can it be so simple? Time and again homeschooling families have given their children a great education through real life experiences and a love of reading. Find out what works and how you, too, can enjoy this journey. This is a great workshop for both beginning and veteran homeschoolers!

Building Character and Strong Work Ethics in your Children
Do you ever wonder how homeschooling exhibitors get their kids to work so hard? What are they doing that could give you similar results? Be encouraged with Biblical principles and practical tips to give you a successful outcome with winning attitudes for the Lord’s sake.

Academics for the Glory of God
In recent years, some methods of education glorify academics and its classical roots. These methods have gained popularity because the results are children who reach high academic standards. But do we have to sacrifice a Christian Worldview to have those results? What does God have to say about academics? You will be amazed at the findings!

Becoming a Help Meet
Come hear this wife’s struggle to honor and reverence her husband. Her stories and experiences will help you understand and identify with your own journey. Be encouraged to endure this race so your “children arise and call you blessed; your husband also, and he praises you.”

Common Sense Business For Your Kids
Do you have a child that would sell your cat if you let him? Or one that is always coming up with unique ideas? Find out what the Solis family has done to help their children develop their business skills and natural abilities. Learn from their successes and failures to help ease the path to entrepreneurship.

Common Sense Business for Teens
Setting up your own business when young can not only give you much needed cash, but also teach you many practical life skills. In this workshop, Shirley will share her stories of entrepreneurship, giving you ideas you can implement right away. Find out how her 13-year-old is making $25 an hour! Get ready to have fun and learn too.

Preparing Sons For Life: The Mom’s Part
Historically, men of God comment that their greatest influence for loving God came from their mothers.  What are we doing to make our sons better husbands, fathers, and men of God?  If you are blessed with a son and want to vibrantly raise him up for the Lord, you must come to this workshop; he (and HE) is counting on you!

Learning Naturally: An Insight into Charlotte Mason Education
Inspire your children to learn naturally by introducing them to great classic literature, a love of nature, and an appreciation for music and art. A “how to” workshop based on the teachings of homeschooling pioneer, teacher, and philosopher, Charlotte Mason.

Simplicity as a Way of Life
With more churches than ever, higher median incomes, more books to choose from, and abounding ways of doing things faster, why do we still feel we are missing so much of what
matters? In this practical but convicting talk, be prepared to find ways to simplify home, church, relationships, finances, and even homeschooling. Full of ideas, you’ll be encouraged to de]clutter your life and set new goals to help you have a more meaningful life.

What Does a Relaxed Day Look Like? Finally Answered!
Do you follow a relaxed approach to education or wish you could? Perhaps you are unsure if you are doing it right or even how to do it. Are you doing enough? People want to know, “Really, how do I do it?” Shirley answers this question as she shares what relaxed homeschooling looks like for her family.

Loving Your Neighbor: Appreciating Other Cultures
Appreciating and understanding other cultures is one of the many ways to show Christ to the world. By developing an affinity to the way others live, we build a bridge that unites hearts. Shirley will immerse you into other cultures, their food, lifestyle, and ways we can expose our children to the beauty of cultural diversity, even at home.
Raising Children to Impact the World
Fulfilling our call to disciple the nations cannot be achieved unless we are raising young diplomats. We must understand the differences between cultures among the people of the world. Shirley challenges us to break outside of stereotypes and then teaches us practical steps to empower our children to impact the world.

When Being Superwoman Comes at the Expense of the Superkids
In our desire to accomplish the most out of life, we often make decisions which inadvertently affect our children in negative ways. These decisions could mean starting a co-op, volunteering at church, starting a business or a ministry. How do we keep a healthy balance and understand the seasons of life in order to build up the Superfamily? Come and find out!

Thinking Like a CEO Mom
American corporations employ CEOs who are some of the most passionate and world- changing people in the world. How do these CEOs prepare to execute their job? How do they invest their time? How do they use systems to make things duplicatable and functional? In a fun and practical workshop, Shirley will share principles CEOs use to make corporations successful. You will learn how to apply some of these same principles to your home, not only to make things run smooth from upper management to the rest of the team, but to make a lasting impact in our children and the Kingdom of God.

Raising Young Entrepreneurs
Do you have a child that would sell your cat if you let him? Or one that is always coming up with unique ideas? Find out what the Solis family has done to help their children develop business skills. Learn from their successes and failures to help ease the path to entrepreneurship. Beware…attending this session might mean your children will make $800 a month or more at 14!!

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Shirley Solis 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.
