If you’re wondering if your child is behind, or are asking, “Does this count as school?” or “Are we doing enough?”, you may be fighting a public-school mindset. It’s quite normal to ask these questions, but rest assured, you are on a completely different path! This workshop will help you to navigate your child’s educational goals and break free of government limitations. Instead, you’ll focus on the whole person and learn to see the big picture!

If we homeschool simply to achieve high academic marks, we are squandering the opportunity to influence our children for Christ. Character healthy leaders are those children who have learned to elevate virtues above feelings. If we spend our homeschooling hours simply on academics and activities, we may win the praise of man, but we risk losing the hearts of our children. In our few short years with our children, we must focus on the first things first, and character is always the first thing! In this session, Megan will challenge you to use every opportunity to teach your children to serve God by loving others and to love others by faithfully serving God.

Mrs. Deckert will cover the North Dakota requirements for home schooling. She will also give many practical hints including suggestions for lesson planning and record keeping. This is the place to start if you are just beginning the home education journey or are just “checking it out.”

Jobs in the building trades are projected to increase faster than jobs in every other sector in America over the next decade. Over the same period, many white-collar jobs requiring 4-year college degrees will cease to exist. Why is this?

This session will explore the latest and greatest of what is going on within the creation/evolution debate. This presentation turns evolution on end since the primary evidence of evolution (natural selection) has been explained today by genetics and points to a Creator rather than chance processes. In fact, these so-called evolutionary changes take place in hours to days, not eons of time. It is the most recent and powerful evidence serving a death-blow to evolution and a must know for every student and parent to defend the faith.

By uncovering the definition of Joy, the eternal Source of Joy, and our part in snatching and holding on to that Joy, you'll discover a wellspring of Joy to refresh you in even the "stinkiest" of times! When we overflow with Biblical Joy, we can become joy-bearers who bring encouragement and hope into the lives of everyone in our sphere of influence.
