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!

1-2 PM

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.

 

8-10 PM

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.

 

3:30-4:30 PM

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!

Thursday May 15 @ 6:30  –  Stop Wrestling and Start Resting
Friday May 16 @ 1:00  –  Overcoming Doubt, Hope Revives
Saturday May 17 @ 1:00  –  Attention: Obsessive-Compulsive, Perfectionist, Control-Freaks: CHILL OUT!
Saturday, May 17 @ 5:00  –  How to have a HEART for Your Kids
Three of these presentations I have given at the other two Teach Them Diligently conferences this year. The new one on the docket for DC is “Overcoming Doubt, Hope Revives”. This presentation is interactive as we discuss several various characters from the Bible and their moments of doubt, how they handled them and how God showed Himself mighty through them. I will suggest 5 warning signs for doubt and 5 strategies for reviving hope! Come and join us as we seek to defy doubt and embrace hope.
We are already here in DC as we just came from the graduation of our oldest son from the King’s College in NYC. We have the other six with us and are enjoying the sites in DC. I will be in and out of the booth at Apologia during the conference since all the kids are with me, but I will make it a point to be at the booth 2-3 Thursday, Friday and Saturday handing out M&Ms in exchange for a Bible verse. We may run into each other in the vendor hall as I look for some treasures for our year. Either way, I hope we will get a chance to talk with you-I’d love to meet you!
Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Join Me in Spartanburg, SC

This next weekend, April 3-5, 2014, I’ll be at the Teach Them Diligently conference. It is an honor to minister alongside David and Leslie Nunnery as they serve homeschooling families.

Here is my speaking schedule for Spartanburg:

Join Me at Teach Them Diligently in Spartanburg, SC April 3-5, 2014!

·         Thursday, April 3 @ 5:00 – Stop Wrestling and Start Resting
·         Friday, April 4 @ 1:00 – Attention: Obsessive-Compulsive, Perfectionistic, Control-Freaks, C.H.I.L.L. O.U.T.
·         Saturday, April 5 @10:30 – Stand by Your Man
·         Saturday, April 5 @ 3:00 – Soaring Beyond Survival
·         Saturday, April 5 @ 5:00 – How to have a H.E.A.R.T. for Your Kids
My first session is brand-new for this conference season. I presented it for the first time in Nashville a couple of weeks ago. Come at 5:00 and learn how to walk into the conference weekend more restfully and without as much wrestling.
Friday afternoon at 1:00, you can come and CHILL OUT. This session is for all of the type-A homeschool moms — the ones who need to just relax, enjoy their kids, and let God do what only He can do.
Saturday is going to be packed! We will start out at 10:30 discussing how to prioritize our marriages in the midst of the madness. I promise not to croon the ol’ country song by the same title, but come and remember the importance of keeping your marriage strong.
At 3:00 we are going to look at Numbers 14. Why did the Israelites settle for manna in the desert when God had the Promise Land waiting for them?
Finally at 5:00 we are going to get to the heart of the matter. How to have a HEART discusses the central issues in our motherhood journey.
In addition to these presentations, I will be hanging out at the Apologia booth. I would love to meet you! I am bringing one of my favorite treats to share with you. The Bible says in Psalms 34:8, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” In Psalms 119:103, we read “How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” In exchange for a Bible verse I will give you a mini bag of M&M’s. You can read more about my M&M’s challenge here at M&M – Meditate & Memorize {Vlog}. Further, you can read about my M&M’s all-year-long challenge here.
May God bless you this conference season.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” — Proverbs 3:5-6
I hope you are planning on attending a conference this year. If you’ve never been to a homeschool convention, I encourage you to find one – Teach Them Diligently is a great place to start! There is nothing like seeing all of the other families who have stepped out in faith to disciple their children for God’s glory. That is what this is all about — glorifying the Father.

Nashville Here I Come!

Nashville Here I Come

The Teach Them Diligently conference will be in Nashville, TN this weekend March 20-22, 2014 at the Opryland Gaylord Hotel. I am honored to be just one of a host of speakers who will be there to encourage each audience member on their homeschool journey.
I will be speaking four times:
1)   Thursday 3/20 @ 5:00pm  – How to have a HEART
2)   Thursday 3/20 @ 8:00pm – Soaring Beyond Survival
3)   Friday 3/21 @ 9:00am  – Attention Obsessive-Compulsive, Perfectionistic, Controll-Freaks: CHILL OUT!
4)   Saturday 3/22 @ 5:00pm  – Stop Wrestling and Start Resting
You can see the whole schedule including the room assignments at this link from Teach Them Diligently
The simple outlines for these presentations are available on my Presentation Outline page. You can print them out and bring them with you to the sessions. I would love to meet you. Please come to one of my workshops or to the Apologia and say hello!
I am already preparing and praying through these presentations. Each of them represents a significant lesson God has taught me as we have homeschooled our own children.
HEART” is all about how God showed me that I had allowed my heart to become hardened by the cultural norms.
In “Soaring” I discuss the fact that the wilderness is not God’s plan; the Promise Land is. We need not settle for mere survival when we were made to soar.
The “CHILL OUT” presentation came about as a result of watching numerous moms throw in the towel and give up because they were unwilling to relax.
My last presentation this weekend is entitled “Stop Wrestling and Start Resting.” It is always a thrill to develop a new talk and this one is intensely personal. I believe too many of us waste far too much valuable time resisting and rejecting God’s will and way. I hope you will join me as we explore ways we can embrace the peace that transcends all understanding.
Here’s the deal: I am still learning! I don’t have this whole thing figured out. The way I see it we are on this journey together. God is a patient teacher. He loves us (and our children) more than we can imagine. As we persevere, He walks each step with us. This homeschool choice is so much more than an educational choice. While we are distracted by the academics, He is working on a much deeper level—our hearts.
Far too many homeschooling parents try to do it alone and don’t attend a conference. I pray that God will grant you an opportunity to attend an event in your area. God desires to meet you exactly where you are. That is what happened to us. The first conference Davis and I ever went to changed our lives. Take the time to go. Going as a couple and or family is especially powerful. Together you will encounter other families and speakers and ministries who desire to help you disciple your children for God’s glory.
This weekend I will be at the Apologia booth Friday and Saturday morning from 10:30 – 12:00. I will probably be there other times as well, and I hope to see you. Please stop by and say hello. I’ll have chocolate to share! I would love to hear all about what God is teaching you and how He is showing Himself faithful. We all have a story to tell and I’d love to hear yours. Come by the booth and share it with me, or stop me if you see me browsing in the vendor hall. I would love to meet you!
Check out my complete conference schedule here (link ?). I will be at all four of the Teach Them Diligently conferences in TN, SC, DC, and TX. I will also be speaking at four state conferences: CAPE-NM; CHEC-OK, NCHE-NC, and THSC-TX.
I would appreciate your prayers as I seek to help the weary and encourage the faint-hearted to stand firm, persevere, and continue on.
