As we watch darkness spread throughout the world, it is easy to become discouraged and fear for our children’s future. This does not need to be the case.

Foundation Seminar - Teaching Discipline using Self-Governing Principles (Bill Peavoy)

The best day in a parent’s life is the day their child accepts responsibility for their own education. However, this doesn’t just happen by accident, it is the natural consequence of following a clear, pre-established education journey, anchored to the individual child’s passions and interests. No parent wants to nag or micromanage, and no child wants that either. Let’s get Mom, Dad, and child on the same page and customize a plan everyone can be inspired by.

Bill Peavoy Bill Peavoy
1:30 pm - 2:20 pm

Survival Skills Seminar - Surviving Relationships (Liz Simmons)

Sometimes it seems like life is just one lesson after another in survival. Yet God didn’t say men are that they might survive! Men are that they might have joy and life more abundantly! I have learned that all the stories we tell ourselves about how relationships should work (as we keep trying the same things that aren’t working) are based on the pattern we have for relationships, our primary relationship: the one between us and God. What if we could take a look at who we think God is and how he sees us and clear out the stuff that isn’t true? Learn with Liz four key principles for growing closer to God to not just survive but to flourish in Him and to bless all your relationships.

Liz Simmons Liz Simmons
2:30 pm - 3:20 pm

Foundation Seminar - Time Management (Dana Wood)

The first question a mom asks when she decides to homeschool is about curriculum. The second is how do I do everything? It can be overwhelming, but it's possible. Time management is a mindset. This class will help you find your mindset and give you practical ways to keep up with your home and everything else you have to do. You can do this! And still have time for you!

The Heart of God: How Knowing God’s True Character Changes Everything (Liz Simmons)

Joseph Smith said, “If men do not comprehend the character of God, they do not comprehend themselves.” What if one of the main causes of your emotional distress is a misunderstanding of who God really is and how he really sees and feels about you? We know the truth has the power to set us free so if we feel stuck, maybe it’s because we picked up a belief that is out of alignment with the truth? The more we correctly comprehend the Father and his heart for us, the more encouraged and joyous we will feel. Knowing whose you are, children of the most joyful and compassionate being, whose perfect spiritual blueprint lives within you, whose hope is to reach, love and guide you to peace and joy can change how you see Him, yourself, the purpose of life and it can unlock your heart to have that same, outrageous love for others.

Vendor Workshop - Living History

There was a time when history ruled the world. Sages, scientists, generals, artists, kings and merchants used history as the central textbook, and made decisions based on the lessons of the past. Investors looked to the past for guidance, as did statesmen and artisans. Stories are the foundation of history, the foundation upon which all societies base their view of the world and with which they face and choose the future, and God is the central figure. No honest reader of history can doubt that the great men and women of history were influenced by their religions, beliefs and relationships with God. The purpose Living History is to provide parents a history text in story form (the method used by the Savior in His teachings) from which to teach their children, blending the secular and religious together, and putting God back into history. Students come to better understand their world and their place in it when history is taught in this format.

Acting It Out (Becky Macias)

In this class, we will talk about some of the basic principles of Drama (acting) and how to use them in a homeschool environment. Bring a story to life as a narrator or acting out all the characters! Drama allows kids to use their already abundant imagination. When parenting if your answer has to be no, you can make it a yes by imagining and acting it out (i.e. Can we go to Disneyland? Can we go to space?) Use these ideas to help your kids get comfortable making a presentation. Acting helps build confidence, get out of their comfort zone, and think on their feet. In this workshop I will give you some easy ideas to “act out” a story, bring history to life with “costumed performances” (it is way easier than it sounds), or imagine different careers. I'll give you some easy ideas and activities that will help get you started. We'll explore some of the benefits of drama and help you get comfortable sharing it with your kids. My goal by the end is to show you how fun and easy it is to introduce drama (not that kind, the good kind) to your family.

Vendor Workshop - Balancing the Benefits and Dangers of Technology for Kids - Troomi Wireless

Every child has unlimited potential to learn, do and become anything. What a tragedy if that potential gets robbed by dangers lurking under our noses and at our children’s fingertips. We can't leave our children’s mental and emotional health to social media app developers. While children are learning to use technology responsibly—which for me means with intentionality and discipline—they should have content protections and monitoring mechanisms in place to make sure they don’t stumble into trouble.

The Question of the Good: Wisdom of the Past and Your Child’s Future - Vendor Workshop - Fathom the Good

Children are our future, yet the world deprives them of much needed wisdom from the past. To help children see clearly amid the world’s confusion, young hearts and minds must be opened to the question of the Good. This is a philosophical question first contemplated by Plato and Aristotle that considers higher human purposes and, so, is a friend to your child’s faith. Grounded in the Western philosophical tradition, including the American Founding, the question of the Good is central to all Fathom does. Learn how our one-of-a-kind approach integrates philosophy, history, civic responsibility, advanced writing, advanced reading, and debating into a classical, user-friendly curriculum. We use original text and critical thinking skills not only to educate children, and families, but to inoculate them against critical race theory and other radical ideologies of the modern world. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover how Fathom the Good can prepare your child to live in the world without becoming a product of it.

If your child is middle school or higher, now is the time to think about the high school transcript, not at the end. What is a transcript and how do you make one?

The Surprising Practicality of Dreaming (Dan Ralphs)

For years I worked as a Dream Manager at a major software startup, my job was to help our employees identify, articulate and accomplish their personal dreams. From riding elephants in Thailand, to riding bikes through northern Europe, to launching new small businesses or starting a non-profit, I have helped reawaken dormant dreams and watched them become reality. In every case, the dreamer grew more confident, creative, engaged, and productive. They changed in ways that traditional development programs could never touch. They were fundamentally different because they were able to tap into a powerful internal motivation that lay dormant. As a father of five and a former high school teacher, I have seen these same principles transform my students and even my teenagers. In this session, we will discover how you can leverage the power of dreaming to inspire both yourself and your families.
