Each homeschool is free to make a choice- what method will we use? Many people, books, and publishers vie for your attention, and it’s hard to know what’s the best choice for your family. See how each of the different approaches handles preschool, planning, family scheduling, teaching different ages together, learning struggles and high school. How and when did they choose not to take the traditional approach? How would your family culture change if you were to adopt one of these methods? Represented are: classical, Charlotte Mason, unit studies and unschooling.
This discussion will help parents initiate and continue to lead their children in a true understanding of sexuality and intimacy. A follow-up to last year’s panel, this year’s session will go deeper as we all learn how to keep the conversation going with our children about topics that don’t often come up at the family dinner table. Join us as we touch on how lusts come about in our children and how to respond to them, how our relationship with our spouse can be a template for how we teach our children, and how do we sensitively teach about homosexuality? This discussion is intended for parents/adults who are interested in thinking more about these topics, but given its sensitive nature, will remain closed to children/teens.

This session is for teenagers who are trying to discern God’s will for their life. Can God really be trusted to lead you in the major issues of life — like finding a mate? You may be surprised to learn that God’s plans for you will surpass your grandest dreams! Israel will share from his heart in this relevant message to young people.
Have you ever wondered what you are supposed to do for a career when you grow up? Have you ever asked God for guidance but been unsure if he answered your prayer? We are going to look into scripture passages on God’s will. We will also explore some principles to help guide Christian young adults in discerning God’s will for their lives.
Changes! Life is full of them, especially during our adolescent years. How can we thrive spiritually in the midst of difficulties, transitions, and stress. Even more, how can we embrace the lessons God has for us to learn through those times?
You hear about battles for freedom and parental rights. What is it all about? What freedoms are under attack and why do they matter to teens in Manitoba. Is there really a threat in this free country we live in? There is no question that young people can make a difference, we will spend time talking about what all this means for youth and what they can do today.
When you are trying to inspire and motivate children, there are two forces that are often exerted: Positive and Negative Reinforcement. In this session, Israel explains the importance of Affirmation as a way to inspire and motivate your reluctant child. Drawing from practical and Biblical examples, this session will help you to keep those important relational connections as you are attempting to impart knowledge.
If you have a hyperactive or easily distractible child, you won’t want to miss this informative and sometimes humorous message that shares the perspective of a homeschooling father who was once a hyperactive homeschooled child.

The sharks are circling, and your kids are their prey. Your homeschooling “boat” has sprung a few leaks and you’re not sure how long you can hang on. Overwhelmed with more kids in the “boat” and older ones needing more academic help, you’re tempted to give up the fight and send out your kids before you think they’re ready. What to do? Join us for a thought-provoking session where we discuss (1) why it’s worth the effort, and (2) what we must do to prepare our kids for the inevitable moment when they will leave our “boat” to live in a culture that’s hostile to Christ and His people.
