Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Dream BIG and Fan the Dreams in Those Around You
As long as there have been dreams, there have been dream killers. We've all encountered candle snuffers, bubble busters, and wet blankets. They're the ones who constantly remind you why you shouldn't homeschool, have more children, be a stay at home mom, or take that step of faith you believe God would have you take. The world is filled with dream killers. They grew up with you, they live in your house, and sometimes they...are you. Their intentions may be good, but if you listen to them, you will miss out on God's best for your life. Join Todd as he helps you revive old dreams, gives you weapons to battle dream killers, and urges you to throw caution to the wind and set sail for the adventure of a lifetime.

Lies Homeschoolers Believe
Your house is a disaster, your kids seem out of control, and you wonder how you'll ever make it through another day of school. Your "get up and go" has "gotten up and went". You used to think homeschooling was the best thing since sliced bread, but now you're feeling like burnt toast. Take heart - you're not alone! No one homeschools because it's easy. You do it because you believe it's best. But there are times when you need to be reminded once again why it's best. Join me as we do just that. You'll laugh and be encouraged in the toughest job you'll

How To Be A Great Wife Even Though You Homeschool (Moms only)
Are you having trouble finding the time and energy to meet the needs of your husband after a hard day of homeschooling? Maybe you've forgotten what his needs are. Would you like your husband to take a more active role in homeschooling? Maybe your husband refuses to be involved in training your children. Join me as we look at your role, not as a homeschooling mom, but as a homeschooling WIFE. Your husband will thank you for coming! The discussion will be lead by a real husband of a homeschooling mom.

Help! I'm Married to a Homeschool Mom (Dads only)
It's a fact! The only thing tougher than being a homeschooling mom is...being married to a homeschooling mom! Dad, your wife needs your help. Come join me as we discuss how to support and assist our wives in the homeschooling journey. We'll also do a lot of laughing, as I encourage men to be encouragers of their homeschooling wives.

Ten Things You Need to Teach Your Child Before Graduation
In a homeschooling world of unlimited options and choices, homeschooling can be overwhelming. Should I cover advanced algebra, ancient history, quantum mechanics, or insist on violin lessons? The truth is, you have limited time and can’t cover it all. BUT there are 10 things that you should instill in your children before they graduate to assure them future success in their adult years. Laugh along with Todd as he cuts away the tall weeds and steers you down the path to what matters most.

Team Homeschool!
In the sometimes bleak and harsh world of homeschooling, we need each other if we're to make it through in one piece--and impact the world. So, if you've homeschooled for over 10 years, are new to the game, or are about to toss in the towel, you need to come to this workshop. And in case you are a dad and think you're off the hook, you're not! You're needed most of all. I promise that you'll laugh, be encouraged, and be challenged in YOUR distinct role within the homeschool body.

Homeschooling, But Still Married! (for moms)
Are you having trouble finding the time and energy to meet the needs of your husband after a hard day of homeschooling? Maybe you've forgotten what his needs are. Would you like your husband to take a more active role in homeschooling? Maybe your husband refuses to be involved in training your children. Join me as we look at your role, not as a homeschooling mom, but as a homeschooling WIFE. Your husband will thank you for coming! The discussion will be lead by a real husband of a homeschooling mom.

Every Dad is a Homeschooling Dad
You may not crack open a book, work through a curriculum, or call it school, but it's your job to train your children. Join me as we look at the trials, triumphs, and tribulations of training our children. Now don't worry, I won't make you feel guilty or give you a forty-six point outline, but I promise to tell it straight and to encourage you in the best job there is - fathering.

Raising Dangerous Sons in a Safe and Mediocre World
Let's face it: Most men today are yellow-bellied, lily-livered weenies. They may wear tall Stetsons, drive fast cars, bungee-jump from bridges, collect souped-up power tools and carry big black Bibles, but they're weenies. They flex their biceps and proclaim their faith, but when the going gets tough, they play it safe. But God wants your sons to leave the heavily populated, safe waters and live dangerously.

Are you convinced that every homeschooling family except yours is great? Do you believe the lie that others are more organized, better prepared, have smarter kids, are wiser parents, and have a child in the national spelling bee? Well, let me set the record straight...that's not the way it is! The truth is most moms feel inadequate. Homeschooling moms fear that they're letting their kids down in their education and in example. They feel like their house is out of control, their children are beasts, and the sizzle has left their marriage. Join us as we unleash the power in being REAL. You’ll never be the same again.

If you left THEIR school because you didn’t like their school, then why are you trying to make your school like their school?
We all left the traditional school because we didn’t like the way they did school, yet there is a lot of pressure to do school the way they do school. And it’s killing us. If you’ve been thinking there has to be a better way… there is, and it’s not called boarding school. Join Todd as he re-examines the reasons behind what we do and why we do it and burns the bridge between their way and the better way.

Answers to All the Reasons You Should Quit Homeschooling
Do you have a child who doesn’t want to be homeschooled, in-laws who don’t understand your reasons for homeschooling, a spouse who isn’t sold on the idea, or a guilt complex reminding you that you have no business homeschooling your children? After all, those nagging, sometimes-silent disapprovals can crush a person under the weight of guilt and despair. Join Todd, as he goes face to face with the naysayers and shows you how to address their concerns of why you shouldn’t homeschool your children.

How To Keep On Going When You Feel Like Giving Up
Homeschooling is hard, parenting is hard, and marriage…well, that’s way hard. And that’s OK. Trouble is we don’t like hard. We want easy and at the same time we want successful results. But good things are hard and hard things are good, and they go hand in hand. Sadly, most people don’t ever experience the good because they can’t handle the hard. They put the hard thing off and all they end up with is a pile of regrets. Here’s the good news: you can handle the hard. In fact, if you’re faced with two choices, pick ‘HARD.’  During this hour, you’ll laugh with Todd as he shares how to embrace the hardness while keeping your eye on the joy and experience God’s best for you.

Sure-Fire Ways to Get Your Child to Hate Homeschooling, You, and Everything You Hold Dear
A pandemic has struck homeschooling families across the country with full force. Homeschooled children of well-meaning, God-fearing parents have graduated and now hate homeschooling, their parents, and anything to do with God. Some fatalists say, “Well, that’s the ‘chance’ you take with children. You do your best and then spin the wheel.” Others shrug their shoulders, cross their fingers, and press on. There’s a better way. Come be encouraged as Todd explains the reasons for the pandemic and gives you hope and one sure-fire way to get your children to LOVE homeschooling, you, and everything you hold dear.

Taming the Techno-Beast: Parenting in the Internet Age
XBoxes, Game Cubes, the Internet, MP3 players, and iPhones have changed the way we live, have fun, and interact. Children quietly glued to game monitors for hours have replaced laughter and creativity. They beg to play, whine when they can’t, and even lie about the time they’ve spent on “the gadget.” Teens and preteens spend most of their waking hours texting, chatting on Facebook, or “tweeting” on Twitter. Today’s latest-breaking technology becomes tomorrow’s obsession, demanding more time, attention, and sacrifice.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Todd Wilson and other workshop leaders and speakers.
