How To Homeschool My Child, Founder

“Helping parents raise children to the glory of God”

 

Dear Homeschooling Parent,

I love the start of a new school year. New school supplies, New curricula, New shoes!

Are you ready for this year?

Whether you are a new homeschooling parent or a veteran, we can all be encouraged from those who have gone before us. Those who made mistakes and corrected them. Those whose heart is for homeschoolers to be successful. And those who desire to see your children grow into young men and women of God.

Homeschool Super Heroes Will Soon Reveal Their Best Kept Secrets

We’ve brought together the Super Heroes of the Homeschooling Community; so, you can achieve the success at home you deserve. Learn from their expertise and experience on how to provide the best education for your children this year, while still cleaning, cooking and chauffeuring.

Discover some of the mistakes they made along the way so you can AVOID doing the same thing! How cool is that?

Whether your children are just beginning their school experience or almost ready to fly the coup, you CANNOT afford to miss this unique opportunity to learn from the best. Never before have so many experts been assembled at one time for just one purpose …showing you PRACTICAL TIPS that really work in today’s home.

You may look at our Super Heroes and wonder to yourself, “I haven’t heard of these guys before.” That’s because many of them are in the trenches homeschooling. They make it work on a daily basis. Or, they are helping homeschool parents raise their children to be Godly leaders of the future who will impact our society for God.

Our Homeschool Super Heroes were not chosen because of their credentials (although there are plenty of credentials in the list below). They were chosen because they will share “real life” way to make your homeschool year the BEST ever.

KELLI BECTON

When Kelli was a young girl, on vacation with her family, she walked on the beaches of a special island in southwest Florida. She always felt closest to the Lord when she was out there with the sand between her toes, singing to Him at the top of her lungs. It was then, that she began asking God to bless her with her own family and allow them to live there near the beach.  Years later, she met her husband on that beach and they discovered that they’d grown up in the very same church together several hours away. They were married on that beach.  They live and play there with their children on a regular basis. God is so good. He honored her request – even though she didn’t deserve any of it.

She wraps herself up in His grace and love each day. She strives to remember to be thankful for even the little things. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 is one of her favorite verses “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” He wants us to be thankful for the little things as well as the big things, even the things we don’t understand. This is where she finds her strength to fight chronic pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis and where her joy comes from.

Kelli’s family loves their adventures. Exploring God’s creation is their favorite family past time.  Being thankful and amazed by His creation is their passion. Having the opportunity to share that with others is a blessing.  Kelli is a writer, speaker and mostly, a homeschool mom.

~Heather, College Station
.
Thank you for all of your heart, time & energy you’ve invested to help all of us who at one time or another feel like we are “going it alone”! I thank the Lord for people like you who have gone before us and are helping us along our way!!I am a pastor’s wife and home school mom of 2….with 2 years to go ’till high school graduation. We’ve been homeschooling since kindergarten…and I still want/need encouragement & an occasional “shot in the arm” – a boost to keep the momentum going! Thank you for offering it! Bless you, dear sister!~Kelly
.

Three things you should know about these interviews:

1. They are interviews…not prepared presentations.

You get a fresh, spontaneous response from each of our Super Heroes. We ask questions that you may want to ask, but aren’t able to do so. You’ll really learn down to earth ways to homeschool that really work when you are trying to balance homeschooling, family, hubby, activities, your home, cooking (seems they always want to eat 3 meals a day, right?)

2. We know you are super-busy, so we have kept interviews to 20-40 minutes long.

You don’t have to wade through a lot of rambling. We get straight to the point and share how you can make this school year the best ever.

3. Our interviews are conducted by my daughters, Ashley Ortega & Gentry Beck. Ashley & Gentry are homeschool graduates and offers a unique perspective as she gets each of our Super Heroes to open up and share “real life” ways to improve your homeschool this year.

 

 

You’ll Discover Practical Tips That
Any & All Homeschoolers Can
Use This Year

They REALLY Work!

 

These speakers are the best of the best in the business. So, all you need to do is register below, and we’ll send you the date and times when our Homeschool Super Heroes will be speaking and then you can just hop on your computer and listen in.

We’ll be running these interviews August 20 – August 31, so you can get off on the right foot this school year. That’s right, no middle seat airline travel, no overpriced hotel rooms, no car rental and late nights away from home. That’s right, you never have to leave the comfort and privacy of your own home or office. Just sit back and relax in your favorite easy chair and absorb these homeschooling strategies.

Once you sign up, you’ll have the access to each interview on the day we play that interview. Just log in and listen as each speaker reveals their most sacred homeschooling secrets. It’s that easy.

First, let me just say that if I was to gather all these Homeschool Super Heroes into one conference center for 3 days of non-stop training, it would cost…well let’s just say a small fortune. Some of these guys charge a lot for just an hour of consulting. If we put all these speakers in a two day seminar you’d pay big bucks, but you can have the same experience without leaving your home. You won’t have to pay for hotels, flights, food, seminar fees or anything like that. It’s not going to cost you anywhere near that.

So what’s the cost?

It is FREE to listen to our daily interviews the last 2 weeks of August - Just register at the top of this page.

If you want copies of the Recordings, Mini-Books(transcripts) & Cheat Sheets, grab your copy right now and save $30.

10% of Homeschool Super Hero sales will be donated to Compassion.
We will use the money to support at least one child on a monthly basis throughout the year.
Hopefully, we can sponsor more than one child with your support.

PPS. Here’s what homeschoolers said about our Original 2010 Homeschool Super Heroes….

I had the opportunity to listen to your wrap up today and it was so enlightening and again, inspired me. I have been doing nearly everything you covered in your segment! Thank you so much for making yourself available and for sharing the wonderful information and experience you have. You have a calming way about you! I hope you will continue your mission and that is, truly helping others.

I enjoyed the superheroes so very much. Each person helped me in some way. Ashley did a great job conducting the interviews. She asked the correct questions and things just started flowing! I feel more confident, though there remains some nervousness just beginning this homeschool journey coming up on Tuesday. I left the interviews feeling that I had more knowledge necessary to educate my child.

God Bless You, I hope to hear from you again,

Deb

 

I have really enjoyed the interviews! I have been looking for someone who has been before me and could give sound, Biblical advice and encouragement. I have found it!
