Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Homeschooling a Large Family Made Easy
With 20 plus years of experience in homeschooling a large family and lots of lessons learned the hard way. David and Linda will share many tricks of the trade and practical insights which they've learned that helped their family survive homeschooling. (With Linda Watkins)

How to Impress God with Your Dipolma
What happed to cause some homeschooled students to reject the Christian worldview that was important to their parents? Jesus encountered four dangerous mindsets and their negative results when He walked among His people. Homeschoolers can easily fall into one or more of these traps and in so doing can bring serious harm to their families. This session will explain how giving focused attention to one command of Christ will help home educators recognize and avoid those four damaging viewpoints, while at the same time helping them experience satisfaction and eternal significance in their efforts.

Ten Things Not to Tell Your Pastor
Many home educators feel tension between themselves and their churches, but do not know what to do. We can all think of many "helpful" suggestions or comments we could offer to our pastors, especially concerning home education. But are those suggestions really helpful? Listen to David Watkins-pastor, state homeschool leader, homeschooling father of eight and grandfather of fifteen-share some things not to say to your pastor! Learn what homeschoolers are really like through the eyes of their pastors. 

The Practical Aspects of Discipling
While there is no sure fire formula to guarantee that any child will turn out to be a "success" there are timeless and proven principles that, when implemented, will lay a powerful foundation upon which they can experience significant accomplishments. This workshop brings to light real help in properly training our children.

But I Didn't Volunteer for THIS Job!
But I didn't volunteer for THIS job..or perhaps you did volunteer but you wish you hadn't! If 20% of the people do 80% of the work, and you are in the 20%, how do you keep from getting over worked and becoming resentful? Hear insights which every volunteer leader needs to apply. Your sanity may depend on it!

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with David Watkins 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.
