Homeschool Informational Seminar

School LogoDuring the coming month of March, our church, homeschool group, and family have the unique opportunity of reaching out to the surrounding area and assisting them in a newfound adventure called homeschooling. That’s right, we’re hosting CHEA of California’s Homeschool Informational Seminar, and we’re please as punch!

What is a homeschool informational seminar? Pretty much how it sounds. A gathering of homeschool veterans along with homeschool newbies and homeschool wish to be’s. Together, we’ll discuss the adventure and calling of homeschooling, encouraging one another to seek the heart of Christ in our parenting and children’s educations.

How can you help? I’m so glad you asked!

Pray – Please, please, please pray for this event. (And all events like this one hosted around the world!) Pray the Lord would bring families who need to hear and be encouraged. Pray we meet them where they are and are edified before our Father. Pray new families would be blessed and have questions answered. Please pray for those who will be speaking at this event, both the guest speaker and panelists (us included), that the Lord would give us His words to speak and His heart to reach these families.

Encourage – If you know someone who might benefit from this event, and lives in Southern California, please encourage them to attend. Our desire is to help families overcome questions and doubts they may be facing regarding homeschooling. The entire event is free, including a continental breakfast and special treats. We’re praying the Lord would bring all who have need.

If you’re living in Southern California, or just here on a visit, stop in and say hello! We’d love to give you a hug, welcome you to the adventure of homeschooling, and buy you a cup of coffee. Most importantly, we want to pray with you and help you understand you’re not in this alone. In Christ, we walk this path together.

“For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.”
~ Ecclesiastes 4:10

Homeschool Netcast Network

I think it important to constantly be learning. Even as an adult there is much wisdom yet to be gained. To this end, I have been spending a great deal of time squeezing in some extra reading and listening to short lectures which are helping to expand my realm of knowledge.

While I genuinely enjoy TED-Ed, they only speak to education in general and not to the specific needs or concerns of homeschoolers. I also find that the lectures are never from a Christian perspective, which I also find important.

I recently had the pleasure of coming across Homeschool Netcast Network and it has been an amazing blessing. There you will find an array of resources for the Christian homeschooling community.

homeschool-netcast-networkMr. McKoy has thoughtfully laid out the Homeschool Netcast website in such a way as to make everything easily accessible and a breeze to navigate.

  • Blog – An insightful collection of posts from Mr. McKoy on all things education.
  • Newbie – For those new to homeschooling, you might wish to spend a little time here.
  • Watch Live – Every Thursday evening, you can watch Mr. McKoy live as he discusses important topics and interviews prominent figures in the homeschooling community.
  • Free Stuff & More!

Under the “Newbie” section, make a point of listening to previous homeschool conventions and helpful interviews.

While listening to Homeschool Netcast, I have been able to learn a great deal about high school courses, prepping for the SAT/ACT tests, how to get my kid into college for free, and so much more!

If you have a few moments, head on over and take a look for yourself. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!
