One thing I always enjoy each year is attending a homeschooling conference. Not only do I get to learn from inspirational speakers, I also get to catch up with old friends and browse new curricula. If I come to a conference feeling worn out from the school year, I usually leave energized and encouraged.
Of course, this summer many homeschooling conferences have been canceled. So I was glad to hear about the Catholic Homeschool Conference, which is online and FREE.
And whether you’ll be homeschooling in the fall or not, this conference will have talks relevant to all Catholic families.
Starting this Thursday June 25 until Saturday June 27, you will be able to listen to over 30 speakers — experts on marriage, family life, parenting, and, of course, homeschooling. And you can browse books and curricula in the virtual exhibitor hall.
Come this fall, even if you aren’t homeschooling, your kids might still be distance learning. This conference will help you learn how to manage all that with grace and joy.
Some of the speakers I really look forward to listening to are: Kimberly Hahn, Laura Berquist, Mike Aquilina, Fr. Calloway, Sarah Mackenzie, Edward Sri, Andrew Pudewa, and many others.
You can get a Free Pass and spend these three days listening to superb speakers and learning from the experts. (Mental note: stock up on frozen pizza and bribe kids to take care of toddler so I can watch as much as I can!)
Or, the VIP Pass will give you lifetime on-demand access to 50+ speaker videos. It’s a great way to get inspiration and teacher enrichment all year long. The Early Bird price is $47. Once the conference begins, the price goes up to $97.
So if you’re wondering: How do I even begin to homeschool? How can I create a joyful atmosphere at home? How can I improve my marriage? or How can I be a better parent? Like I said, stock up on frozen pizza and carve out some time to attend the conference. Or snag that Early Bird VIP Pass and enjoy the conference talks at your leisure.
