And look at the "giant": an ordinary parent like you.
Likely an ordinary parent with tired shoulders and an aching back.
Wherever your children are learning, your "shoulders" play a tremendous role in their education. This conference is a great time to recharge those shoulders with some fresh ideas and options: from getting along with your kids, to excellent books and materials every family would love, to charting a uniquely amazing course for your family's education.
June 28, right here in the Uintah Basin (at Western Park: 300 E 200 S in Vernal), you have an opportunity to rest your shoulders a bit and step onto some truly great shoulders for a glimpse at the possibilities for your child's education... and your family's journey.
It's only a small conference, in a small town far off the beaten path...
You could attend other conferences in big cities that would take your breath away...
You probably have a lot to do on a typical Saturday...
But consider three reasons to attend THIS conference, THIS year:
1- Education Resource Fair: free of charge and everyone is invited! So much more than curriculum and all across the spectrum of available options, with an opportunity to hold materials in your own hands, ask questions, purchase without shipping costs and, in many cases, to meet the very person who wrote the book/program! We have some of the very best educational resources coming to this conference, but even if you walk away knowing what you are definitely NOT interested in, you will have saved yourself the headache and expense of long-distance shopping or searching online.
2- Workshops: 2 options each hour featuring something for every parent! Everything from getting started (or starting again) in home-based-education... to rescuing your parenting efforts... to running a home-based business or a homeschool co-op... to understanding teenagers... to fitting it all into a day (or maybe an hour!) and so much more! Tickets are required for this portion of the conference, so Check out our Speakers Page for the full schedule and don't forget to get your ticket early.
3- Nicholeen Peck is coming!
We are so excited to have Nicholeen as our 10:00 am keynote speaker (ticket required) for this Conference; to meet her in person and learn from her experience how to understand teens, communicate effectively in our families and teach our children a love for obedience and true freedom! She will be teaching two additional workshops. You can learn more about Nicholeen on our speakers page and at her website: parentingselfgovernment.com or see the "Strictest Parents in the World" video here.
