Biblical Principles of Communication for the Family (Steve Demme)

Loving God and each other are relationships. Relationships are built on edifying communication. No one can build up, or tear down, more than those that we love the most. In this workshop we will examine how to hear and understand each other in a safe place.

Fostering Lifelong Learners (Steve Demme)

Sandi and I wanted to give our sons a good foundation in language arts and math along with a love for learning. Our vision worked, for each of our sons is a lifelong student who are continually learning and growing. We catch a fire from someone who has a fire. This workshop will share strategies for encouraging a passion for learning through books, family excursions, and exposing your family to fellow lifelong learners.

Seeing Fractions is Understanding Fractions (Steve Demme)

Four out of five people don’t understand fractions! With one clear hands-on model, Steve demonstrates how to perform the basic operations as well as understanding equivalent fractions, reducing fractions, and mixed numbers. The grand finale is how to convert a fraction to a decimal to a percent.

Creating A Homeschool As Unique As Your Family (Stephanie Jackson)

Everyone has an opinion and an experience, but how do they relate to what works in your homeschool?  Are you a traditional schooler?  An unschooler?  Do you sleep in?  Work from home – or out of the home?  Are there babies & toddlers?  Join Stephanie for this “there’s no right answer” conversation about finding your homeschooling path.


Provincial Update (Stephanie Jackson) 

Stephanie will share with you the ongoing negotiations with the Department of Education to create the best home educating opportunities possible for your family.  What is the Education Act?  What are your legal responsibilities?  What are the benefits of registering?  How do you fill out the forms?  Come with any other questions you may have and Stephanie will work with you to find the best answers.
