Invigorated!
Life's greatest endeavors are often life's most daunting.  The arduous paths grow more difficult when motivation wanes.  But, oh, what power we enjoy when invigorated!  Allen Wolfe offers fuel for your fire and wind for your sails.

Success:  Eleven Principal Qualities of High Achievers
Billions of people want to enjoy successful lives, yet so few fly to the mountain peaks. We are better equipped for life when we learn the core elements enjoyed by successful individuals. Regardless of your goals, eleven key components are prerequisites of advanced achievements. Humanists have corrupted the ideas of setting goals and accomplishments. Learn what Scripture says about how to enjoy godly and grand attainments. 

When Dad Doesn't Lead, What's Mom to Do?
How can you help without becoming his leader? Frustration, exhaustion and pride can stir a wife's less-than-biblical reactions and worsen the situation. Can your family afford for you to do nothing? Join Allen Wolfe to discover specific answers.

Homeschooling in a Dysfunctional Home
Homeschooling is challenging and can feel impossible when your home is falling apart.  Although we all strive for the picture-perfect home, homeschooling families are also afflicted with substance abuse, divorce, extreme rebellion, sibling rivalry, depression, and more.  How can you maximize success and minimize damage when problems are from within?  Find help and hope.

Retaining Influence Amidst a Million Competing Voices
Is your desire to raise children who are anchored in the faith and full of zeal? The Bible gives guidance to parents on how to train sons and daughters to have contagious passion coupled with a robust intellectual foundation.  Please do not let your children become part of the statistics of attrition.

The Foundation of All Learning:  All Secular and Sacred Knowledge Must Begin and End in Submission to God
BOOK of books from the KING of kings. There are 1189 chapters in the Bible, most of which remain unstudied. However, Scripture contains the crown jewel of all knowledge the only truth with eternal consequences. No subject mastered among men approaches the glories of the Bible in the faintest degree. And, God has entrusted to parents the daunting responsibility of instilling these precious pearls of understanding into their children. Allen Wolfe offers parents encouragement and easy tools for giving their children a comprehensive, working knowledge of the entire Bible literally chapter by chapter. Challenging to adults, attainable to children.

Imparting Wisdom - Training Little Solomons
As Christians, we follow Christ, "[i]n whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Col. 2:3). Considering we worship "the only wise God our Saviour" (Jude 25), shouldn't we be marked by strong evidence of wisdom? Shouldn't we train children who also bear traces of the wisdom found in the "little child" Solomon, who became the wisest of all men? In this class, I will give eight (8) means by which we gain wisdom. As time permits, I will also give five (5) prerequisites needed to benefit from the means of wisdom.

Wisdom and Your Wealth
Is there a correlation between our income and wisdom? Is there a correlation between our income and wisdom? Are you lacking money due to WDD (wisdom deficit disorder)? Learn the value of wisdom as it pertains to training your sons as strong providers and your daughters as skillful stewards. My goal is to help you increase your wealth and business status by teaching seven key behaviors. If blessed of God, this class will bring an economic return that far surpasses your convention expenses.

Theonomics:  What is fair?
Prison and prohibition ... what is fair?  Capitalism v. communism ... does God care?  Are injustice and equity relative per society?  Regulating money, milk, and marriage ... is government’s expanse an ethical miscarriage?  Theonomics clarifies absolutes against political confusion.  Theonomic explores moral divisions between individualistic freedoms and civic and ecclesiastic governments.  Your fundamental convictions will be tested when answering, What is fair?

SAT Vocabulary: Diction with Conviction
The College Board (creators of the SAT) give guidance for mastering their vocabulary section.  Come learn eight cueing systems and keys to elevating your vernacular.  These specific techniques for educing meaning from literature will aid all your reading.  The vocabulary analyses are all taught in the context of Scripture.  Hence, you and your children learn diction with conviction.  Simple instruction and easy tools will expand your lexical reach.

Literature Credit for Bible Study
Do you want homeschooling credit for studying Gods Word? Inspired Scripture is the most celebrated literature of all time. Kids get credit for Shakespeare, Dickens, Twain, and Poe. Do not children deserve equal credit for the Bible? YES! Reading, writing, comprehension, etc. are all contained. Parents will learn how their children can earn literary and humanities credit while studying the Scripture. Allen Wolfe taught the Bible as a senior-level literature course at USF so that his students could learn Gods wisdom while also fulfilling the requirements of the second largest university in the state. Long ago, public school boards assigned the Book of Job. Now, liberal school boards are giving publicly educated children books that overtly promote sodomy. Those who do not fear God are using literature to advance evil. Why not use the ultimate treasure of purity and truth to shape the precious little minds of your children? Learn statutory law, historical narratives, poetry, and more while hiding eternal principles in their hearts.

Family Wealth (Part 1 and Part 2; Select one or both)
Generational poverty or wealth is customarily accompanied by specific behavior.  What does the Bible teach us about building and managing family wealth?  In this presentation, Allen Wolfe will combine his financial understanding as an accountant with specific guidelines as a Bible teacher.  Most education is for future occupational opportunities.  Let's get to the heart of long-term family wealth.

Rough and Rugged:  Quintessential Man
Set the crosshairs upon an essential quality of manhood:  being a warrior.  This presentation will address topics from martial arts to adventures, from fitness to extreme self-discipline in the face of pain.  When society raises soft, boyish men of pastel colors, godly families will train sons who are warriors built rough and rugged.  As eagles were created to fly, men were created to live strong.  Don’t miss your calling!

Wolfe's Bio

Compressed Description:  Allen Wolfe transitioned from accounting to language arts in order to teach “The Bible as Literature” at the University of South Florida.  The 12-credit, senior-level course gave birth to his authorship of Balancing the Sword (Vol. I and II), a comprehensive study guide of the entire Bible.  In conjunction with these books, Allen Wolfe developed the BTS Reading Planner software.  Mr. Wolfe was a contributing writer for IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America (DVD) by Colin Gunn and Joaquin Fernandez.  Today, Mr. Wolfe acts as proprietor of the world’s largest homeschool speaker database and speaks at churches, homeschooling conventions, and men’s conferences with the desire to cultivate in others a deep love for the Scripture.

Expanded Description:  God blessed me to be raised by loving, Christian parents. At an early age, I believed that Christ died for my sins and was baptized. However, "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life ... of the world" (1Jn. 2:16) was too alluring. At the age of 17, I turned from youthful folly to wholly follow the Lord Jesus Christ. Days before my eighteenth birthday, I failed a very basic Bible test. This failure served a wonderful benefit. In turn, I began to read through the Bible for the first time. In the subsequent years, I diligently searched the Scripture from cover to cover. At the close of 1994, my efforts were recognized and honored by a senior staff member of the University of South Florida who asked me to teach a "Bible as Literature" course. My heart was swollen with desire to see the knowledge of God spread far and wide. The foundation of Balancing the Sword (BTS) was laid during the following two years. Volume 1 (i.e., the red book) was predominately written in 1995. Volume 2 (i.e., the blue book) was written in 1996. I continued to refine and bolster the study guides for nine additional years by adding questions, cross references, quotes, and images. I also developed the BTS Reading Planner software to accompany the books so that people can easily produce structured, balanced reading plans to accomplish their noble ambitions. The BTS study package was released to the public at the close of 2005.

As a single man, I cannot gush with praise for my wife and children. Willingly, the blossoming years of my twenties were consumed with BTS which I believe was a righteous desire "my God had put in my heart to do" (Ne. 2:12). At the least, "[i]t seemed good to me ... to write" (Lk. 1:3) these robust yet simple Bible study guides. Now, my joy is to encourage families in the comprehensive and systematic discipleship of their children. I have a special interest in strengthening men in godly leadership.
