Hi there! ....
I cannot believe I forgot to make this announcement with my newsletter yesterday. So I do apologise for the second mail out this weekend.
An invitation to ...
a Christian Homeschool Conference
My friend, Caroline Garstone is hosting a Christian Homeschool Conference and I will be speaking on discipleship homeschooling – relational learning.
Date: 19-20th March 2011
Place: Boyanup, WA
We will be discussing topics such as
- Knowing your goals as you set out to homeschool your children
- What is discipleship and what does it look like in family life
- Teaching with a discipleship mindset
- Capturing our children’s hearts, not just educating their minds
- Character Training
- Finding support in our journey
- And much more...
I am so excited about this opportunity and I hope those who are able to join us will be inspired to take every opportunity to teach and train the whole child - body, soul, spirit. That they will be refreshed ready to take on a new year of learning and growing with their family.

A lecture won’t change our children’s hearts,
but loving guidance towards Jesus will.
