Teaching Your Children With Your Grandchildren in Mind
I am surprised at how many homeschool kids aren’t sure whether or not they are going to educate their own children at home. I’m more surprised that some are sure they won’t. Usually, further examination reveals a complete lack of any theological/philosophical reflection on the topic. Their parents simply did what was best for them at the moment; not what was best, period. In this session, we will examine key theological and philosophical motivations for home education, and how to pass these on to our children. We will also look at the way our approach to educating our children figures into the scenario and the kinds of things we need to encourage our children to invest in now so they can invest in their children in the future.
Culture Wars: How They Affect the Homeschool Family and How We Respond
There is a mighty clash of worldviews going on all around us, and there is no way to escape. Educating our children at home will only postpone the inevitable. Our children will engage the culture. The only question is, will they do so as lambs going off to slaughter, or will they be sheep among wolves who are “wise as serpents and innocent as doves”? (Matthew 10:16)
EPIC: The Fight for Faith and Family in a New Age
When you became a parent, you enlisted in a spiritual army. You engaged in an epic battle between good and evil. Join Heidi for an hour that will change the way you see your role in it and equip you for the battles yet to come.
Strong Roots – Strong Faith
Our family is only as strong as our marriage. And our marriage is only as strong as our faith. Every aspect of modern life conspires to destroy faith, tear apart marriages and scatter families. But it all begins with faith. Faith is more than reading the latest Christian bestseller. It’s more than attending the fastest growing church in town. It’s a simple, ancient practice born out of simple truths and eternal wisdom. Heidi St John will help you put down the deep faith roots and build the strong faith foundations needed to anchor your family in this rapidly changing world. With refreshingly honest insights and a rich sense of humor, Heidi will point you back to Jesus, the One and Only as you laugh and cry together. As Heidi draws you back toward the “things of first importance” you’ll find your faith taking root once more as you dig in and anchor the marriage, family and children that you cherish.
