There are so many homeschool conferences available now then there were years ago.
It’s a blessing to be able to find encouragement, inspiration and practical help at these conferences. We are also able to shop for our favorite homeschool curriculums and resources as well as discover new ones at discounted prices from many of our favorite homeschool companies and brands.
We learn a lot from these conferences but many times feel overwhelmed with all the information we have gathered from all the speakers we have listened to and when we get home after the conference we may feel like we don’t know where to begin or how to process it all.
I’ve been homeschooling for 8 years now and haven’t seen yet a homeschool conference that focuses on planning. You see planning is an essential part of preparing for your homeschool year.
It doesn’t matter which homeschool method you use, if you are a routine or scheduled type person, or if you are organized or not….planning is crucial.
It helps us stay focus on our homeschool goals, mission and vision as we live life together.
The Intentional Homeschool Planning Conference
Knowing how important and beneficial it is to plan and seeing that there isn’t many homeschool planning conferences that assist you through the process of planning your year I decided to host the Intentional Homeschool Planning Conference which I designed just for you!
This unique homeschool conference is entirely focused on “planning” your ideal homeschool year in a way that works for YOUR family.
While you’re at the conference, you can take action and plan your homeschool year with purpose and peace.
Conference attendees will also hear from Dr. Melanie Wilson, Dachelle McVey and Terrie McKee who are seasoned homeschoolers that share simple, yet powerful, ideas that you can apply right away.
You’ll leave the conference feeling confident and equipped with your family’s customized plan that you can adapt for each year of your entire homeschool journey.

What Makes Us So Unique…
The Intentional Homeschool Planning Conference is different from other homeschool conferences because we focus on planning.
In addition to taking notes, you will be able to actually apply what you learn in real time.
We will have hands-on workshops where you can have your questions answered by the speakers in an intimate setting.
You will be able to connect with other homeschool families as you all learn together and leave with a plan in hand.
