Sheila's Session Will Be: Living Up to the Potential of Homeschooling
We homeschoolers believe that real learning takes place best in the home. But is your home catering to real learning? Or are you getting bogged down by curriculum choices that don’t work, housework, and everyday life? Learn how to live up to the potential of homeschooling, as we raise children that can think critically, communicate effectively, and act responsibly! A practical seminar on choosing curriculum, planning, and visioning.

How Big Is Your Umbrella?
Weathering the Storms of Life
While we may dream of the fairy-tale "happily ever after" life, deep inside we know that storms are just around the corner. How will we handle loss when we feel like our lives, and what we hold dear, has been ripped away from us? How Big Is Your Umbrella walks us through this journey, beginning with the accusations we often hurl at God, finally finding shelter as we listen to His still, small voice, even in the midst of the wind and the rain.
To Love, Honor and Vacuum:
When you feel more like a maid than a wife and a mother...
Do you feel harried? Taken for granted? Like you never have enough time in the day to get everything done that needs to get done, let alone anything that you actually want to do?
To Love, Honor and Vacuum: When you feel more like a maid than a wife and a mother helps women find peace in the midst of their hectic lives. I give it to you straight: do you do everything around your house, but never have time for the important things? Are you inadvertently teaching your family members to treat you with disrespect? Or are you simply overwhelmed by keeping a house while you've also got toddlers underfoot? I'll teach you how to put first things first, and foster relationships where you'll feel more appreciated, less harried, and more fulfilled.
