Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Couponing to the Max

No one wants to waste money, after all it belongs to God. And of course no one wants to slave over clipping coupons, your time is His as well. Kim presents a crash course on couponing; from organization, to playing the drugstore game, along with maximizing your dollar at the grocery store. You’ll find out how to save on everything from health foods to crafts to household supplies. You might even pick up some couponing lingo along the way.


Frugal Living for Housewives

Turning a quarter into a dollar seems more like a necessity than a magic trick in this economy.  Come hear this housewife share not only nifty and thrifty ideas, but her heart on homekeeping for the frugal housewife.


Crossing Hurdles to One Income Living

From the outside looking in you may think the only hurdle to becoming a one income family is losing that extra money. From the other side of this fence Kim will share the other hurdles you’ll face and how their family has approached them and come out victorious.


When Your Homeschooled Child Misses the Mark

You give birth to an beautiful babe, bring them home to raise them in the most loving of environments, Yet life ultimately throws in unseen variables to mess up your perfect plan. Are you able to offer grace to your child through the worst of circumstances? In this workshop Kim approaches how can you have high expectations and yet be prepared for when your child stumbles, all without being a hypocrite. She’ll share the importance of encouraging other moms by sharing the struggles you go through.

Garroutte's Bio

“What, homeschool? You’ve got to be kidding God.” That was how the calling to home education started for Kim a decade ago.  Through the struggles of leaving a career and adding extra mouths to feed, God Almighty has taught Kim and her family to fully rely on Him.

The beloved wife of Shane and mother of four active teens (3 homeschool grads and 1 more to go) this family keeps a busy schedule.  Actively involved in their church and volunteering in their community are only two of their many passions.  An avid couponer and frugalista Kim has a heart for showing others how it is possible to survive on one income.

Kim is the Administrator for the Mendocino County homeschool support group-Shepherd’s Gate and God uses her often to encourage other homeschoolers in the possibilities of what lies ahead, if only they will trust in the Lord.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Kim Garroutte 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.
