I talk about a lot of things. Here’s a list of a few speaking topics:
Transcending the Laundry and other Homeschooling Realities.
What has laundry got to do with a rich homeschooling life? Order changes everything. In the laundry room, kitchen, activity choices and in our hearts…order helps our mood and our productivity. How do we “get order” when we are so busy raising children? It is valuable, freeing AND possible!
Shortcuts to Joy: homeschooling the way you thought it would be.
We all learn best in an environment of joy. Joy is a means to reach our full potential. Joy allows for learning at home to be sustainable. How do we find joy and keep joy? Employing these two tools: simplicity and surrender.
How to Read a Book so it Becomes the Curriculum – what homeschooling can look like every day
This talk will provide parents with some context of what a beautiful education is…why joy matters and tangible ways to get there. This talk will interest those just considering home education, and those at any stage and all age levels.
Literature can be the foundation for so many subjects. History, geography, culture, sciences, art, music…and other subjects, can be studied through literature. When we read aloud well to our children, that beautiful family study that we all imagined homeschooling to be comes to life. This talk discusses ideas for family study through literature and vital resources and how to read with a passel of children of different ages.
