Latter-day Saint Home Educators (LDSHE) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3)non-profit organization. Our volunteers are active home educators themselves, striving to provide support, information, and resources that will assist other LDS families in their homeschools.
We’ve been around since 2004, holding annual conferences in the east. In 2016 LDSHE began hosting two annual conferences – one in the east and one in the west. The conferences have five events: a Home Education Conference, a Youth Education Conference, a Beginners’ Seminar, and two specialized pre-conference seminars, all of which vary in focus from year to year.
These conferences and seminars provide an opportunity for LDS homeschool families to gather for instruction and fellowship. A vendor Marketplace provides opportunities for families to view and purchase educational materials. The presentations are recorded and are available for purchase from a recording company at the end of the conference. Additionally these recordings are put up on the LDSHE Audio Library to be accessed from anywhere in the world that internet is availabe.
Each year our conference hosts speakers and attendees who are not of our faith. We welcome their participation and attendance. LDSHE is not officially affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; however, we strive to ensure that all LDSHE educational presentations, activities, and website resources are in harmony with the official doctrine and standards of the Church.
