Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Help! My Husband’s No Help!
A sensitive treatment of a difficult topic, Lisa shares real insights from her own journey. While offering understanding and compassion, with a good dose of humor, she tackles issues that most women avoid. Learn 7 secrets to a happy marriage and successful family and homeschool life. This workshop offers frank answers to difficult issues many women face.

Relationships, Relationships, Relationships: They Are Forever
It is right and prudent to set academic, work skills, character and spiritual goals for our children when we begin homeschooling. It is right that parents should follow schedules and maintain standards and exercise consistent discipline to mold their children. But sometimes relationships with our children, spouses, and friends, those precious jewels of eternity, get scheduled right into oblivion when we homeschool. Learn how to establish and maintain those most important items – relationships.

But What About the Experts?
We’ve all been trained and ingrained to take the “word” of the “experts” in any field, so long as they have letters behind [or in front of] their name. Rarely do we question what we are told. We follow what counsel we are given, often finding out much too late that the counsel was not good. As an example, we all hear the term “medical practice” ~ but almost never consider its literal meaning. It’s a *practice* ~ and they are quite literally practicing on us and our families! Come hear another side. Learn about the disease of *expertitis* from which most of us suffer or have suffered. Most importantly, learn how to discern when to listen, and to whom. In addition to realizing the catastrophic affect had by “expertitis”, this amazing workshop offers an eye-opening revelation about the “world of experts” you will be thrilled to see!

Neither Slave Nor Bum: Teach Your Kids to be Good Workers
Academics are always important in our homeschooling. But they are not alone! Ultimately, we strive to raise and train our children to be capable, productive, self-sufficient members of society. We work to make successful adults! Learn the secrets to finding and keeping the “happy medium” between making “slaves” or “bums” of your kids ~ and what a tremendous impact this has on their lives! In order to be good workers, we must teach them the self- confidence that comes from working properly. Join us to learn what we were never taught. You will be so encouraged ~ leaving equipped to train your children properly, rather than later having to retrain adults!

Music Makes a Major Difference
Music is such fun ~ we all enjoy it! What we did not know is that it improves many other areas of learning exponentially! In this enjoyable workshop, learn why music is so important, what areas of learning it improves and why, and how it broadens our horizons in ways we never imagined. Here you will even learn how to apply music to help your special needs child. Finally, we can understand some of the many reasons we are all so drawn to music, automatically! Come learn what a major difference music really makes ~ you will be amazed!

DeCompartmentalizing Your Life
We live such fast, fragmented lives, often having one personality for home, one for work, one for church, and one for our friends. Sometimes we feel like we actually have multiple personalities, and too many lives pulled in too many directions! Compartmentalizing our lives make them so much harder to live. There is an easier way! Lisa shares how homeschool families can begin to think in a new way, bringing all their individual parts into one comprehensive whole, allowing more efficiency, integration and relaxation. When we quit compartmentalizing, we get rid of the “I’m overscheduled” syndrome and the “fake” lives. Our lives start anew in a whole different and better direction. More than a “theory” or “inspirational” workshop – Lisa shows parents how to actually decompartmentalize their lives.

Don’t Forget Your Preschoolers!
As our oldest children grow, our tendency is usually to teach everyone at a higher level. We wonder why our 3 year old won’t sit still while we’re reading a chapter book and are amazed that he is picking up math and language skills that we never purposefully taught him. Where are those Eric Carle, Bill Martin, Jr., and Frog and Toad books? In our zeal and delight while teaching our older children, let us not forget those precious preschoolers, who just want to sit in our laps and read The Very Hungry Caterpillar one more time! Cherokee County Homeschooling Mother of 4, gives you some practical and fun ways to remember your preschoolers.

Beginning Homeschooling: Most Asked Questions
Lisa Brown enthusiastically helps parents learn how to get started, where to find educational materials, other activities including sports leagues for homeschool children, how to occasionally locate someone else to teach subjects such as chemistry and the value of homeschool support groups. Learn to take the guesswork out of choosing curriculum by assessing each curriculum, determining whether or not you need a curriculum, and what will meet the specific needs of your child and family.

Beginning Right: Developing a lifestyle that promotes homeschooling togetherness and a family team for success and load sharing

Homeschooling is so much more than academic subjects like Math and Science. It’s also about raising children to be responsible, honest, hardworking and helpful people. While it’s a lovely thought – having children who happily help out at home, it actually takes some effort on the parent’s part to get this to happen. Learn how to go from chaos to a family team that shares the work.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Lisa Brown 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.
