Presentation Titles & Descriptions

A Message of Hope for Adoptive Families
How can you use your power as an adoptive parent? As adoptive parents, you can struggle with your relationships with your adopted children. As you take on the challenges of being an adoptive parent you can begin to build a wall around your hearts and begin exhibiting signs of what I call “reverse RAD”. This talk discusses how you can protect your marriage and your hearts and learn what it means to show the same mercy that Christ shows each of us as His adopted children. It’s about never giving up hope.

Responding in Faith to the Call of Adoption
Adoption is an amazing calling for families and an eye-opening journey for those who go in with rosecolored glasses. This is an educational talk on preparing your marriage and your family for the beautiful and challenging world of adoption. This talk will help to answer questions about what to expect, what not to expect, how vital homeschooling is in bonding, and how to set up a support system around you that will help you through the hard times. It will also teach you about going into adoptions with eyes wide open and to prepare your hearts, so that you can be ready to be the best parents you can be for your forever child!

Sonya's Achievements
  • Mother of fifteen children
Schweighardt's Bio

"You Matter" is what you will walk away with after listening to Sonya share from the depths of her heart the life lessons that God has led her to and through. Her day to day real life experiences as Mother of 15 children will inspire you to continue your journey with the Lord walking in obedience. It will compel those in need of a savior to humbly submit to His Lordship and begin their own journey. It will guide you to wholeness in areas that the Lord has yet to reach. Living life to the fullest with joy, laughter, compassion, and a strength that comes directly from a love relationship with the Lord is evident in her engaging speaking style and writing. You will have a tear in your eye, a smile on your face, and inspiration to go to fulfill what God has called you to do. Her unique personality will draw you in and make you feel right at home.

Sonya has been married to her college sweetheart, Russell, for 21 years. She is the mother of 15 amazing children ages 5 to 17, three birthed from the womb and twelve birthed from her heart. They have been on the home schooling journey for thirteen years. Russell and Sonya's hearts are to educated families on both Pre and post adoption issues. Sonya is currently working on her first book about their family's call to respond in faith to God's calling in their life. Sonya's blog can be read at

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Sonya Schweighardt 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.
