PA-2018 Walking by Faith and not by Sight

Presented by: Christian Homeschool Association of Pennsylvania

As a pilot for American Airlines, Steve was very close to the events of 9/11. Steve was originally scheduled to be the co-pilot on AA Flight 11, the first flight to be hijacked on Sept. 11th, 2001. Through a extraordinary set of divine circumstances Steve was bumped from that flight the night before by a more senior pilot. Now, he tells his deeply moving story of God's providence on that terrible day in our history. Come discover why God gave Steve a second chance and now uses him to teach parents all around the world to parent with purpose and urgency as he introduces you to The Nine Practices of The Proactive Parent. Intensely practical and Bible based, the Nine Practices of The Proactive Parent is designed to give parents both the tools they need and the hope necessary to build a Christ-centered, character-driven home environment. The Nine Practices are a great way to revitalize parents in the all important task of parenting. This session will take highlights from the 10- week Parenting Matters small group study. Steve will unwrap the Three Pillars of Parenting, The Motivation Model, The Growth Continuum, The Proactive vs. Reactive Parent, and more. You won’t want to miss this keynote event to jump-start your weekend at the CHAP Convention.

Does your son or daughter seem to be faltering in their efforts to learn to read? Is it the curriculum? Is it you? Based on current research, this workshop is designed to help parents better understand the most essential elements of the reading process, along with those critical ingredients that must be emphasized to produce a successful, capable reader.

Have you ever said something like this to you child: "Johnny, stop fooling around with that and get to your school work!" or "That would be nice for a hobby, dear, but let's get back to focusing more on this subject that will help you be employable." If so, come listen to Forrest, homeschool graduate and entrepreneur (who prefers the portmanteau "evangetainer"), as he recounts his own story about stepping out into faith and answering the call that God put on his life while using his God-given talents and interests. Maybe it's us as parents that need to sometimes "get out of the boat" and step out in faith?!

Being a mom is about so much more than feeding, dressing, and driving our kids to play dates. With only a few short years to impart important spiritual truths to our children, everyday becomes an eternal opportunity for teaching, training, and modeling Christ-likeness. The Disciple Making Mom session will give mothers the tools they need to disciple their children in the most important areas: prayer, service, Bible study, scripture memorization, and true fellowship. Moms will walk away encouraged and strengthened, knowing that although discipling their children seems like a huge task, God is on their side!

According to Proverbs 19:19, people who live with an angry person are continually having to "deliver him" from the consequences of his or her anger. In fact, they wind up doing it again and again. Angry people do foolish and mean things that often destroy their testimonies. But the greatest cost of anger is the destruction of relationships with the people the angry person loves. This message gives five key steps to conquer anger.

Language is an amazing grace from God and a gift to steward and revel in. Skill and confidence in crafting words into stories and arguments will open doors for your children and lead them into their futures. Here’s how to cast a vision, encourage and support the journey, capture each child’s unique writer’s voice, and delight in the prose and poetry your kids produce. You may find yourself inspired to write as well.

Afraid that you can't homeschool through high school? Think your young adult would do better inside the four walls of a school building? Come learn why staying the course through the teen years can be the most fruitful and important years of homeschooling for your child as well as the most rewarding for Mom and Dad.

Don’t be surprised when folks question your right or ability to homeschool. They did the same to Christ. “And say unto him, 'By what authority doest thou these things? And who gave thee this authority to do these things?'” (Mark 11:28) Our authority is not of the government or in an accreditation agency; our authority is from Christ. Are you competent to homeschool? If you are in Christ, you are!

Do you want life-long learners who initiate studies on their own? Then let go of the wheel and start giving your children responsibility for their education. Here are practical, inexpensive steps that will encourage your children to pursue their own learning and prevent parent burn-out as well.

Second mile leaders are those counter-intuitive servants of God who earn the right to be heard by developing a consistent love of virtue, a disciplined approach to gratification, and a submissive love for the authority of God’s Word. Male leadership is essential to the success of marriages, families, the church, and society. This session will teach men to earn the right to be heard, prefer pProactivity, reject reactivity, learn to elevate virtues above feelings, build moral muscle, seek forgiveness, and develop a finisher’s attitude.

This simple, but powerful and life-changing, workshop will help you rise above the day-to-day existence of homeschooling and help you see the BIG PICTURE of why you've chosen to homeschool.

We are called to disciple our children. But what a beautiful thing it is to get to the place where our children are wishing to be discipled by us, coming to us to ask for prayer and counsel over sin struggles in their hearts. Do you know God’s vision for your family? Do your children know it? Are you headed there together? Are you connected to your child’s heart? If your child is a toddler, now is the time to begin paving the way to family unity. If he is already a teenager, don’t miss this workshop. If God’s love can conquer unity challenges in the Razvi’s family of 13 children (8 adopted and 5 birth children), He can conquer those challenges in any family. Come hear our story and take away practical tools for developing family unity.

Women, do you need to get real about homeschool and the joy and pain of life? Join Linda Lacour Hobar, author of The Mystery of History, for this down-to-earth session on the up and down seasons of a real homeschool family. With 17 years of homeschool experience, she will share “the good, the bad, and the ugly” with stories of what she did right, what she did wrong, and how she survived difficult times by God’s grace. (Sorry, but this session is not for husbands or students.)
