Speaker Sessions

The Four-Hour School Day

(Homeschool How-To’s)

Often parents who are considering homeschooling are hesitant because they think that home-educating their children will take seven or more hours a day, but that simply isn’t the case. In this workshop, Durenda Wilson shares the reasons why home education doesn’t have to be an all-day event! This session is loaded with encouragement for parents and will help them begin to see how they and their kids can thrive in the homeschool life!

Homeschooling Boys: What Do They Really Need?

(Homeschool How-To’s)

Out of our eight kids, five are boys. We have graduated four of them so far. As homeschooling moms, we can find that teaching our boys is extra challenging because… well… they can be VERY different from us. However, God knew what He was doing when He knit them together AND when He chose to make us their moms. Find out some of the most effective tools to engage your boys in their education and enjoy these years with them to the fullest!

Chores: Why They are Essential in Homeschooling

(Homeschool How-To’s)

Most of us agree that chores are important, but often moms and kids are frustrated, angry, and resentful when it comes to how and when to implement them. Having eight kids in 13 years has the potential to bring a mom to her knees and her home into disarray, but God taught Durenda Wilson and her family SO much through working together. The benefits of having our kids do chores are countless! Investing in this area not only lightens our loads as moms but is an essential part of our kids’ education!

Building Resilience in Your Kids

(Family Discipleship)

The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties lends itself to overcoming the countless obstacles that life can bring. As adults, we have all experienced things we never thought we would face, and we know that our children will have their own share of difficulties. Though there is no way to know what those will be, we can prepare our children by helping them build resilience throughout their childhood. Join Durenda Wilson for this impactful and inspirational workshop.
