You Can't Parent Away Your Child's Weaknesses

Sometimes as parents we think that it is our job to fix our children. Their weaknesses and struggles are very apparent to us. We may even see the weaknesses and struggles of our children as our own personal failure as parents. Even though we mean well, when we approach parenting and homeschooling as a problem to be solved, we create a whole bunch of problems for ourselves! Our children have not been sent by loving Heavenly Parents into our care so that we can fix them. They are humans, just like us, that will always have weaknesses and imperfections to carry along their whole journey through life. Our job is to love them, learn alongside them, and help them figure themselves out. We will use this class to tune into our children’s strengths, tune into our own strengths, and see how we can leverage those to bring joy to our relationships and homeschool journey.

Lead Out Against Prejudice

In the October 2020 General Conference, President Nelson issued the call “to lead out in abandoning attitudes and actions of prejudice” and pleaded with us “to promote respect for all of God's children.” Come and learn ways that we can apply these words to our own personal lives, as well as within our homes and communities. What does leading out and promoting entail? How can we identify prejudiced attitudes in ourselves? In what ways can we promote respect and help others feel welcome at church and in our communities? These conversations are not always comfortable, but they are important. I hope you will join us as we strive to become more Christlike and show greater love to those around us.

Finding True Wealth in Our Relationships, Health, Personal Well-Being, and Finances

Many young people dream of being rich and wealthy when they grow up. In a society of instant gratification and indulgence, our young people are falling prey to the corruptive power of money and greed. Get-rich schemes are growing exponentially. In this class we will dive into the underlying principles of happiness and success and discuss how we can instill those principles into the hearts of our children to help them resist the pull of the world. Additionally, we will discuss in detail the real intent of money and wealth and how we can teach our kids to pursue these tools in the right way so they can live a life of purpose and service.

Preparation, Purpose and Peace: A Homeschooling Guide to Success in College and Life

Being successful is not an easy thing to accomplish, but there is good news! A big part of being successful includes preparation for what’s coming by establishing simple habits now. Knowing what habits to establish depends largely on what we have learned about where we are going and what skills we will need. Defining our personal purpose for why we are going that direction gives us greater motivation to accomplish our goals. This pattern of habits and purpose will influence our decisions and will leave us feeling like we accomplished something incredible, giving us a profound sense of peace and satisfaction with life (and our college experience)!

Every Family is Busy - But are We Busy Building Character?

Most parents want their children to be well-rounded, well-educated individuals. We focus on traditional education subjects and make sure our kids are involved in extra-curricular activities to develop their talents. These are all positive things, but sometimes developing character gets left behind when life gets too busy. We will discuss how to build strong character in our kids and why it is critically important.

The Passport Club

The Passport Club is a celebration of cultures around the world. In the student’s journey to study people from all walks of life, they will see diverse cultural backgrounds as well as universal similarities. Students that know about their world and its people are more open and accepting and able to work together through their cultural differences. Geography and cultural studies are important now, more than ever. This unit study is adaptable for upper-elementary, middle school, and high school levels with great success.
