Embrace Your Journey

Let’s face it, no matter how picture perfect someone’s Facebook post appears, everyone has difficulties. These trials, no matter how troublesome, are part of your homeschool journey. It’s where God has you and your family at this moment. Whether your problem is public or private, health related, financial, familial or marital, everyone has something to overcome. It’s easy to let the issue of the day, or year, become such an emotional energy drain that we end up feeling deflated and defeated, unable to experience joy. God’s Word promises that if we will look at our unique trials through His eyes, embrace this obstacle as part of our journey, and allow Him access to our heart, mind and spirit, we will find that our painful problem is really God’s gateway to peace.

Encouraging Success in Your Children

We all want our children to lead happy, productive lives. As homeschooling parents, we feel a great burden of responsibility for their future. Ultimately, that future is in God’s hands, and our number one goal should be to steer them into a genuine, vital relationship with the Living God. Yet as the special people to whom God has entrusted these children’s lives, education, and future, we must learn to discern their unique gifting, probable vocation, ministry, and purpose in life. In so doing, we will be equipped to nurture and encourage our children to follow their own path to success—spiritually, emotionally, academically, and vocationally. In this talk, Jeannie Fulbright shares how to create an atmosphere that draws our children’s hearts to God; how to recognize their unique bents, talents, and gifts; and how to pass on a vision for their future and empower them to take responsibility for their walk with God, their education, and their future. She also covers issues of common concern, such as the unmotivated child, the struggling learner, and other issues we may face in our journey to encourage success in our children.

Solving Your Science Struggles

Let’s face it—most people don’t like science. Why is that? It’s likely because of how science was taught to them as children. In this talk, based on years of research, data, and experience, Jeannie Fulbright shares her understanding of how science should be taught to elementary students. You will learn the keys to successfully building a solid foundation of science education, with tips, ideas, and examples for making science come to life for both parents and students.

Notebooking—Creativity with a Purpose

Using student created notebooks in your homeschool encourages an atmosphere and creativity as children essentially produce their own work to display their learning. This workshop explains why and how to use this easy and effective educational approach that replaces workbooks, enhances learning and retention of the subject, and develops a true love for learning. Jeannie Fulbright shares tips and actual demonstrations for replacing workbook assignments with creative ideas for science, history, geography, literature, and more. Examples and visual aids make the information easy to understand and implement in your homeschool.

College Crash Course

Rumors abound. Some purport that colleges love homeschoolers; others warn that you need to accredit. The truth is, there is a lot of misinformation in the homeschool community. Indeed, going from homeschool to college does involve jumping through hoops. Jeannie Fulbright is here to share what those hoops are. Jeannie homeschooled her oldest child from start to finish, helping her garner early acceptance into the University of Georgia on scholarship, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, earning her degree in Photo Journalism. She has since helped her two sons through the admissions process. As Jeannie navigated the opens seas of college admissions, she learned what colleges want and how to make a homeschooler an appealing college applicant. From transcripts and portfolios to the application process and everything in between, the earlier you have this information, the easier it will be sail through the hoops that’ll get your child into their college of choice.
