|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!
Three things you
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 30-40 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 daughter, Ashley Ortega. Ashley is a homeschool graduate 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
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.
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 yourhome. 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?
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.
I just wish that I had access to this information when I first started homeschooling back in 1998. Today, you don’t have to big bucks for it. And you don’t have to fly to seminar to get it. You just need to click above. It’s really that simple.
To your homeschooling success,
Christian Parenting Association, Founder
PS. 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,
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! Thank you so much for putting together these interviews for us. They have truly been a blessing and I have passed them on to other moms I know.
I took copious amounts of notes during the interviews, which is a habit I have for any type of seminar I take! I then have those to refer back to. I think it is great that you made them available. They help people, especially those new to this.
Thank you for putting on this mini-conference. I have really loved hearing Lee Binz, Jim Weiss & Andrew Pudewa. Lee’s talk has given me a lot to ruminate on.
Thank you for being concerned and taking time to email me to clear things up. I enjoyed the homeschool superheroes and I appreciate what you’ve done to provide this for us homeschool moms!!
Have a great night!
