Anne Elliott is an author and speaker who loves to teach women, teenagers and children and to dig into the Word of God. Her experience ranges from teaching individual and small-group Bible studies in the local church to speaking at ladies’ retreats and conferences. She has counseled unwed mothers, discipled new believers, mentored newlyweds and challenged retirees. Of course, none of these things happen on a normal day -- which is more likely to include laundry, dishes, changing diapers, walking the dog, talking on the phone, homeschooling, and surfing the 'Net.
Anne attended Baptist Bible College of Pennsylvania and Liberty University, majoring in Bible and Women’s Ministries. She has extensive training in theology, Biblical counseling, educational psychology and music. Currently living in southern Iowa, she is the wife of a public school counselor and has six children. She enjoys homeschooling and also loves being actively involved in her local church. Her hobbies include playing the piano and reading (her family and friends tease her about the stacks of books she lugs around). She loves to experiment in the kitchen and garden, but she freely admits to her share of burned recipes and dead plants.
Anne Elliott has talked to women across the country, in person and via the Internet, and she has her finger on the heartbeat of Christian women. Her goal is to convince women that they can all be “experts” simply by applying the Word of God to their lives.
Her session will be: Using the Bible As Your Primary Textbook
We know that God's Word says we are to impress His commands on our children by talking about them when we sit, walk, lie down and get up (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). That's all the time! What better tool can we have than homeschooling -- but how often our good intentions are sidetracked by "necessities" like school, chores, and schedules. Wouldn't it be nice if we could use the Bible as our primary textbook so that all our conversations and actions centered around God's Word? In this session, we'll try to make this practical. We'll talk about how to use the Bible for all subjects, including reading, grammar, math, history, science, and everything in between. We'll also talk about how to apply the Bible with our children in every hour of the day.
Finally, a Bible curriculum designed for real homeschooling families...
We believe that knowledge of the Bible, God's Word, is essential for our children (in fact, for all people).
But real homeschooling moms want to study the Bible with the whole family together. They also want a study with some meat to it, that really digs into God's Word.
That's why, several years ago, we developed a Bible curriculum specifically for homeschoolers. We invite you to take a look!
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Study the Bible chronologically, beginning with the Old Testament. A firm foundation for biblical understanding will be laid.
Teach your children how to study the Bible for themselves, using inductive and deductive methods.
Through daily use, teach your children how to handle their Bibles, understand what it means, and apply it to their lives.
Commit large sections of Scripture to memory, hiding it in your hearts so your family will not sin against God.
Children who begin studying the Bible in first grade will have thoroughly discussed God's Word four times before they graduate from high school.
A variety of activities for multiple ages means that families will read together, study together, and grow together... making life easier for Mom and simplifying your homeschooling day.
"This is the first time we've been consistent with our Bible study time since we started homeschooling. Thank you!" - a mother in Missouri
"I've been searching for a curriculum that started in Genesis and read straight through the Bible. That our whole family can do it together? Well, that's even better!" - a mother in Arizona
JUGGLING LIFE'S RESPONSIBILITIES
"Reading this book is like sitting across the kitchen table from Anne."
"I have almost finished my reading of the book. I am so impressed with your ability to communicate and your constant reference to the Word of God as the authority!"
About the Book:
Are you eager to learn how to have a closer relationship with God and your family? Do you need to know how to manage a home while juggling other duties? Do you want to learn how to effectively minister in your church and neighborhood?
And how should a woman know what to do first? In a hectic day, should a busy mom place a priority on her home? Her kids? A job to pay the bills? What about serving in her church? Helping a sick friend? Where will she ever find the time to develop a close relationship with God among all her other responsibilities?
In Juggling Life's Responsibilities: Biblical Help for the Married Woman, Anne Elliott clearly teaches God’s design for women as given in the Bible. She is concerned women are not learning God’s perspective on the roles and relationships He created for them. Therefore, she wrote this book to be an introduction to what the Bible teaches about five major relationships of a woman:
Through her warm style, readers can relate to Anne’s stories of personal failure – and success!
In a style that works equally well individually or in a group, Anne methodically leads women through God’s design for them and helps them apply what they’ve learned with special features in each chapter, such as:
What makes this book different?
Anne Elliott is just an ordinary woman learning these principles with the help of godly Christians unafraid to step into her life and teach her what the Bible says. As a wife and mother of six children, she daily has to choose to either apply God’s Word to her life or choose her own way –- and live with the consequences.
She has learned that when she allows the Holy Spirit to control her life, she experiences true peace and contentment.
Anne seeks to share these same principles with other women and give hope to every woman that she can become a fabulous testimony to the glory of God.
Readers will be able to relate to Anne’s warm tone and will be reassured as they discover God has big plans for women of all ages. In a culture of stress and tough decisions, Anne’s prayer is that the Word of God presented in Juggling Life's Responsibilities will help women set wise priorities and will change hearts in an unprecedented way!
