Six Simple Steps To Homeschool Sanity

Whether you’re new to homeschooling or a seasoned veteran, God wants you to have homeschool sanity. The overwhelm, insecurity, and confusion we feel are not from Him. In this keynote session, psychologist and 20-year homeschool veteran Dr. Melanie Wilson will share simple steps that will give you clarity, purpose, and peace of mind in your homeschooling.


Session 1

How to Plan a Simple, Sane Homeschool Week

In this hands-on workshop, Dr. Melanie Wilson will take us through the process of planning a homeschool week that is relaxed, yet productive. This method works for families whether they have a consistent or a crazy schedule. Bring your calendars! Planning sheets are included.

Relaxed Charlotte Mason Planning Workshop

In this session we’ll talk about what a Relaxed Charlotte Mason homeschool is and discuss some of the different parts of the lifestyle. We’ll learn about Enchantment planning and show you how to easily add sparks of joy to your homeschool. 

Homeschool Planning with Special Needs

Parenting children with special needs is hard — homeschooling can be even harder. In this hands-on workshop, homeschooler and veteran special needs mom Terrie McKee will encourage parents that life skills and therapies count just as much as language arts and math in homeschool. Drawing upon her 25+ years’ experience with having special needs children, Terrie will lead participants in hands-on activities such as planning a month of homeschool including therapies, life skills, academics, and other opportunities. Come with your planners and lists of therapy dates (if applicable) and medical appointments for a month of your choosing. 

Session 2

How to Plan a Simple, Sane Homeschool Day

Weekly planning is essential for a relaxed and productive homeschool. But your plan won’t help you if you aren’t also planning your days. This hands-on workshop with Dr. Melanie Wilson will guide us in planning a homeschool day that is sustainable and rewarding. Bring your Bible or Bible app.

Adventures In Literature Planning Workshop

In this session we’ll go into detail on how you can add more fun and inspiration to your homeschool with Book Clubs, Poetry Teatimes and more. We’ll walk through what you need and how to get started planning new adventures in your homeschool through literature.

Homeschooling in the Hard Times

Homeschooling isn’t all sunshine and roses. Life happens, and our planning goes out the window. In this hands-on workshop, homeschooler and speaker Terrie McKee will teach participants how to handle days in which chronic pain is through the roof, kids are sick, parents are dealing with all.the.stuff, and watching documentaries on YouTube counts as class. Terrie will encourage parents that the life skills children learn in hard seasons are just as important as spelling and math. Hands-on activities include making personalized contingency plans in addition to other resources.

"Learning is a constant process of discovery- a process without end." -Bruce Lee As a mother, teacher, and church youth leader, I value and am grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow. I'm excited to attend (this) conference. I believe it will provide me with the knowledge and fuel needed to better serve.
I am homeschooling my granddaughter and I am realizing I have a lot to learn.  It is always helpful to hear ideas from others who have been doing this a lot longer than I have. I am looking forward to learning new ideas and techniques that have been beneficial to others.

Do participants have to be there all day?

We know that your lives are busy. You certainly have permission to plan a teacher work day on conference day so you can join us for the entire day, but we realize that isn’t always possible. You are welcome to join us for one or all online conference workshops. Replays will be available for all participants to access after the conference.

Participants must register and pay for the conference through the registration links.

The conference will be held in a private group on Facebook.

If you are not on Facebook and would like to attend you have two options. You can create a “Temporary” Facebook account to use to access the private group for this then delete it. Alternatively, you could wait for the replays and access them via a learning platform.

The only items you are required to have on the day of the conference are a good internet connection and a computer, laptop, phone or tablet so you can view the workshops online. We also suggest you have a notebook or planner and your printable sheets provided by the speakers ready to go on the day of the conference.

You will be invited to a full day of conference events including keynote and six workshops designed to support and inspire you. Your day will end with a Q & A session focused on answering all of your homeschool planning questions.

You will get access to a virtual swag bag filled with coupons and other freebies and printables to work through. You will also receive lifetime access to all the conference workshops.

Will there be replays of the presentations?

Yes there will. We certainly don’t want you to miss a single moment even if you aren’t able to be there live.
