Join Me This Weekend at Hearts at Home
I head out this Thursday to my last conference of the year! My destination is Rochester, MN where will join thousands of other moms for the Hearts at Home conference. This organization has been blessing, equipping and inspiriting mothers since 1994. I am honored to be one of their speakers for this regional event.
On Friday I will be presenting two of my favorite workshops: Attention Obsessive-Compulsive, Perfectionist, Control-Freaks: CHILL OUT and a workshop, brand-new in 2015, What about ‘That Child’? Both are near and dear to my heart as they are born out of my own experience and God’s glorious, redemptive work in my life. I am grateful for His compassionate patience with me as He gently teaches me.
Attention Obsessive-Compulsive-Perfectionist-Control-Freaks: CHILL OUT!
As an obsessive-compulsive-perfectionist-control-freak herself, Rachael Carman discusses how we can often be our own worst enemy when it comes to enjoying motherhood. Are you tied to a schedule? Do you shiver at the idea of change or adjustment? Are you missing out on significant moments because you are focused on the trivial? It’s time to C.H.I.L.L. O.U.T.! Come learn how to relax and let go of the little things.
What About ‘That Child’?
No matter what description you give them, ADD, ADHD, distracted, hyper-active, kinetic, or hyper-focused, they can drive us crazy. They are experts at pushing our buttons and causing us frustration. We love them because they are our children, and we are supposed to, but sometimes we don’t like them very much. We are ashamed to admit that we don’t know what to do, but we simply don’t. So what precious face flashes into your mind when you hear the phrase ‘that child’? Come join Rachael as she shares proactive steps you can take to gain a fresh perspective.
I have shared these workshops throughout this year and the response has been over whelming. May God be glorified as we finish strong this weekend in Minnesota. You can find downloadable outlines for both of my presentations on my Resource Page. I’m looking forward to meeting you-please stop by and say hello!
Join Me at Teach Them Diligently Convention in Dallas, TX
I can’t believe it but it’s time this week for the last of the Teach Them Diligently conferences of 2015. We will be going out with a bang in Dallas, Texas at the lovely Sheraton Downtown Dallas, July 16-18, 2015.
Davis and I will be traveling this week to the great Lone Star state to minister along side David and Leslie Nunnery and the Teach Them Diligently team. I’m personally looking forward to some Tex-Mex, BBQ the way it was meant to be and some beautiful sunsets. But more than anything I’m looking forward to meeting new friends and visiting with old ones.
My speaking schedule is below. You can find downloadable outlines for all of my presentations on my Resource Page. I’m looking forward to meeting you-please stop by and say hello!
At Teach Them Diligently: Dallas, Texas this year I will be presenting on the following topics:

When Doubt Creeps in, Hope Revives
We all have moments of doubt about this homeschool journey. We wonder if we are doing the right thing or if we are messing our kids up. You are not alone in your desperate moments. The Bible is replete with accounts of men and women whose stories are real and raw. Come and let’s discuss dangers that can lead to doubt and safeguards against it. Come get your hope renewed!

How Many Times do I have to Tell You?
We’ve all said it. In fact we’ve said it over and over. “Look at me!” “Take out the trash!” “Hold my hand.” In her book by the same title, Rachael shares about the things she has found herself saying to her children. In this session she will dare you to consider what you’re saying to your kids in light of the fact that God wants to speak to your heart. The book offers the opportunity to shift the way you think about what you’re saying to your children.
A Night of Real Refreshment
This time is a gift from Teach Them Diligently and Apologia to the hard-working, homeschooling moms at the TTD conference! We want to invite you to join us for a time of fellowship and fun. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to meet friends, make new friends, laugh, consider and pray together. Come join us as we relax, reflect and refresh ourselves together!

How to Have a HEART for Your Kids
In Proverbs 4:23 Solomon wisely wrote, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” As we approach a heart relationship with our children, we need to focus our efforts on what really matters. As with so many things, the first step to having a heart is wanting to have a heart. This workshop uses the word H.E.A.R.T. as an acronym to suggest what really matters from a Biblical viewpoint.
What about ‘That’ Child?
What face comes to mind when you hear ‘that child’? Do you smile or scowl when you see that face? Do you see yourself in that face? Do you struggle to like that child? Does it seem difficult? Impossible? That child is a world changer. God has a plan for that child. All of that energy, all those questions, all that strength, all THAT, is God-given for His glory. Come learn strategies for learning to like that child, to embrace that child, to train that child. They are worth it and He is worthy!
