Are you stumped about how to inspire your teen? Are you searching for what to do with his or her education? If so, come spend an hour with master mentor, Angela Baker. Having mentored hundreds of youth over the last seven years, Angela has learned that teens are inspired by big “mountains.” They love to be challenged. They thrive in doing hard things. Parents can create an environment that has their youth begging for the “mountain” like Caleb of old (Joshua 14:12).
But youth aren’t the only ones who thrive with challenge. So do their parents. Could it be that figuring out what to do with your teen is your current “mountain”? Angela is an expert guide and has unique experience in coaching parents to mentor their teens. Come to this workshop and walk away with four tools to confidently tackle your mountain and create an inspiring environment for your teen.
When asked what she does, Angela Baker responds enthusiastically, “I do people!” She sees genius and beauty in every person and passionately believes that education should be about discovering and growing that genius. This life-long passion led her to seek alternative education for her children. She is an authentic, down-to-earth home educator of twenty-one years who knows the ups and downs of her “business.” Angela is the mother of seven children. She and her family live on a one-acre farm in rural Erda, Utah, where the main crop is children. Angela is a well-loved speaker whose talent for weaving stories with principles creates a memorable experience for her audiences. She is also an experienced parent coach and youth mentor.
In order to inspire youth to dig deep and engage in a rigorous scholar experience, Angela founded Erda Youth Leadership Academy. She is a mentor for Elevation—Williamsburg Academy’s outdoor high school leadership program—where she invites youth to challenge themselves by climbing rock walls and rappelling over cliffs. She is a certified relationship coach through Townsend Relationship Center. Her formal education includes a bachelor’s in family science and a master’s in education. A cherished highlight of her homeschool journey and years of motherhood is the happy hours of reading to her children. She enjoys quiet study, fiery sunsets, family dancing in the kitchen, climbing mountains and rock walls, and refreshing moments of just sitting.
