Homeschooling can be lonely business, if we let it. That’s why it’s so important to fuel the fire and get connected with other families just like your own.
In 2019, I’m speaking at all of the Great Homeschool Conventions, and I’d love for you to join me.
- Great Homeschool Convention: Fort Worth, TX March 7-9, 2019
- Great Homeschool Convention: Greenville, SC March 21-23, 2019

I’ll be giving these four sessions at every single one of the Great Homeschool Conventions:
Teaching from Rest in the Early Years: Homeschooling Kids Under 8
Homeschooling the early years should be simple, but you know what? It doesn’t feel simple. We want to do this well, after all, and with joy.
In this session, you’ll discover the 5 most important parts of a successful homeschooling day for kids under 8, and the principles that will help you keep first things first, even in the midst of an overwhelming, ordinary day.
If you have kids under 8 and long to teach with unshakable peace, this session is for you.
Loving Your Life as a Homeschooling Mom
If homeschooling has lost its shine, you are not alone. It’s easy to get caught up in the dailiness of demanding tasks. Before long, the homeschooling lifestyle we were once excited about seems like a drag.
You don’t need to change your homeschool to love it more. Joy doesn’t come from a change in circumstances as much as from how we look at our circumstances. It’s all about reframing what we see.
In this session, we’ll think through what’s standing in the way of falling in love with our homeschooling lives, and then we’ll reframe those obstacles so we can love our homeschool even if things aren’t going according to (our) plan.
How to Talk to Your Kids About Books (Even if You Haven’t Read Them Yourself)
Discussion is a powerful parenting and teaching tool– perhaps the most important element of cultivating a strong relationship with our kids. Discussions about books are especially effective, because books contain the biggest and best ideas of all time.
But it can be hard to keep up with what our kids are reading. And what if we don’t know much about “literary analysis?”
In this session, I’ll demonstrate that you don’t need to have much literary know-how or even to have read the book to have a great conversation with your child about it. You’ll discover 5 questions you can ask your child about any book (from board books to classic novels and everything in between) to have great conversations with your kids.
Questions and answers about everything from troublesome toddlers, to stopping math tears, to how to get dinner on the table.
P.S. there’s chocolate!
By the way, if you’re a Read-Aloud Revival Premium Member, you’ll also receive an invitation to hang out with me and other RAR member at an invitation-only meetup before the conference begins. What can I say? These are just really fun.
I hope to hug YOUR neck at a conference in 2019!Register for GHC
