Join me and let’s REFRESH – planning!

Conference season really kicks into swing this summer, but many of us could use a little shot in the arm and friendly encouragement right about….now! In February. For home educators, February is historically a season fraught with second-guessing, perhaps a slump in motivation, or even an impulsive desire to change every single book and curriculum that was on the schedule for the first part of the year. Our reflections can leave us in a dizzying state and set us up for discouragement. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Let’s reclaim February – as the season to REFRESH!

Mary Ellen Barrett is hostessing a live (FREE) webinar conference on Friday, February 23, with a lineup of speakers all geared to help YOU consider (or re-consider), refresh, and find inspiration in the beauty within your ordinary! And I happen to be amongst the lineup of speakers!

Edited to add: Friends, the Homeschool Connections website is experiencing technical difficulties due to an issue completely out of their control. They are actively working on the problem in order to re-open the website and registration for the Refresh Conference. Thank you so much for your patience, and check back soon! All of the links here will work as soon as the website issues are resolved!

Refresh! Midwinter Virtual Conference

The conference is hosted by Homeschool Connections, and what is so fabulous about this conference is that you can join in from home! Yep!! Grab a cup of coffee, clear the room, grab your laptop, tablet, home computer – and enjoy the conference without setting foot outside your door! Mary Ellen and the fabulous folks at Homeschool Connections are bringing this refreshing conference right to you…right when you need it most!

The lineup of speakers for this conference is quite fantastic, and I’m humbled to be a part of the talented group! Click on over for ALL the details about speakers, topics, and times.

Here are the details of my speaking time:

  • TOPIC: Homeschool Planning: Let’s Get Into the Details
    • Ok! Y’all know how excited I am to chat planning, right!! I’m grabbing my Erin Condren Teacher Lesson Planner and all my planning tools – the works! We’ll chat about planning specifics and ideas to recharge your homeschool planning as well as share some insight (earned from the good ‘ol school of hard knocks!) that help me in creating organized plans that streamline the day and give all my students clear expectations! And we might even tackle that million dollar question: what to do when God’s plans trump our plans!
  • TIME: I’m speaking at 1:30 PM ET/12:30 PM CT, but check the Homeschool Connections website in case of any last minute logistical changes!!
  • GO REGISTER!! You have to register to hold your place for this free event and there ARE limited seats!

Time is a gift to steward. We aren’t in control of time, nor do we need to micromanage it, but we do have to exercise some diligence in working wholeheartedly in home education! Planning is a tool that helps us steward the gift of time.

Maybe you’re feeling a little discouraged reflecting on the first half of this year and you’d like to grab some new planning ideas, or maybe you’re overwhelmed by circumstances and seasons and your thoughtful plans could use a little more flex. Or maybe you’d just like to chat planning-in-general and grab some ideas to translate into your own planning style to help you organize your time! Pull up a chair and come sit with me at my desk! Let’s encourage and find refreshment as we share about the gift of time and planning as a form of stewardship!

Hope to see you Friday!

  1. Please allow a replay for those who can’t attend live.

    My son’s last basketball game for the season is at the exact time. Thanks so much for considering this.

    I learn so much about organization from you. Most of all, thank you for your humility as you show what you do.

    1. Hi Van!
      I have no control over the format or replay, but Homeschool Connections is graciously making this available as a recording for those that can’t attend live, but you still need to go sign up! Go to the link in my post, sign up to register, and then there should be an option for you to select that says something like, “I can’t watch the webinar live, but I’d like to receive it as a recording.” And Homeschool Connections will take care of the rest!

      Thank you so much for your kind words! Praying you have a wonderful day! 🙂
