If This Is Homeschooling, Why Am I Always in the Van? DVD
Tina Farewell
(I have this on DVD for you.)
OR View Part 1 now!
(This workshop is Tina’s most requested one. It helps mothers realize that they can homeschool their children without relying so heavily on others, if they’ll allow the home to do its work—by staying there!)
Field trips and activities can be terrific learning tools, but they sometimes get in the way of what God calls us to do. We must discern between adult peer pressure to “do everything” and God’s plan for our families. The best learning takes place in a calm, peaceful environment. Tina’s practical workshop helps you identify busy-ness versus effectiveness and teaches you how to de-clutter your life both inside and outside the home.

Bob Farewell
(This workshop is perfect for a follow-up to How to Have the Best Homeschool Ever!)
Get out of the educational box! Far too often we think of homeschooling as merely a way to teach our children academic subjects; however, it is so much more than that!

Creating Lifetime Memories through Sharing Living Books: Favorite Read Aloud Books
Bob Farewell
Out of thousands of books available, what makes a certain few stand out? What do families love about them? What makes them great for all, both children and adults? As Robertson Davies wrote, “A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity, and once more in old age.” Each family’s culture is unique-based upon the books and experiences they have shared. Relive some of the Farewell family’s favorites in this workshop.

Mentoring with Classics and Conversation
Tina Farewell
Reading and discussing Living Books and Classics with our children can make the difference between raising thinking adults and adults who must be told what and when to think.

Simplicity: A Recipe for Homeschooling Success

Multiply 7 or 8 subjects a day by 5 days a week by the number of your children, and you’ve got a recipe for burnout! But educating your children at home doesn’t have to be complicated.

What the Bible Says About Writing: Copywork for Kings
Tina Farewell
Can God’s Word be the core of our language lessons? What is copywork, and why should we use it? How can the Bible and other books spur reluctant writers to creativity?

Travel: Adventures in Motor Home Schooling
Bob Farewell
Half of the Farewells’ home schooling didn’t even happen at home! For six months of every year, Bob and Tina and their five children traveled around the country in a motor home, speaking and exhibiting at homeschool conventions and visiting friends and interesting places. Traveling the highways and byways provides a unique opportunity to learn America’s history, natural science, and geography firsthand. Each day has its own special experiences, enabling them to learn about risk, trust, success, failure, and the wonder of divine appointments. Whether your time on the road is local or for long trips, your family can also delight in this method of education.

PRESENTATIONS ABOUT FAMILY

Bringing Dads Home!
Bob Farewell
Now, more than ever before, evidence is growing that dads are turning their hearts to their children. This can be both a thrilling and confusing time for the family. In this workshop Bob Farewell, founder of Bringing Dads Home, answers your questions about how to handle the stress when Dad assumes leadership, how he can maintain a vibrant relationship with his wife, how dads can be at home when they are home, how dads can bring the whole family together, and how to determine if a home-based business is best for the family. Bob also discusses the dad’s role in home education, being the best provider, protector, and priest for his family, and how to build a strong Christian community.

Understanding the Heart of Your Homeschool Honey: Especially for Husbands
Bob Farewell
There are times in every marriage when, no matter what you do, it just turns out wrong. Communication is a learned skill that few of us have mastered. Because the relationship between husbands and wives is so foundational for the family, church, and society, becoming better equipped should be one of our highest priorities. Bob Farewell tells what has worked—and what hasn’t—in learning to communicate with his wife.

The High Calling of Fatherhood: Especially for Dads
Bob Farewell
Dads are designed by God to be leaders of their homes, but often they haven’t had a role model or the training to do so. Bob Farewell shares useful steps to help men take their responsibilities seriously and practically, from the cradle to the grave.

Discovering God’s Design for Manhood: For Fathers and Sons
Bob Farewell
The attack on manhood is at an all-time high. For decades the feminist culture has endeavored to neutralize the masculinity of men in general and Christian men in particular. Bob Farewell tells how the Creator hardwired you in His image to fulfill His perfect plan for you as the protector, provider, and priest of your family.

Intimacy of the Body, Mind, and Spirit: For Wives Only
Tina Farewell
(This is Tina’s most dynamic and life-changing workshop!)
The intimate issues of our bodies, minds, and spirits affect the whole family and even the world in many ways. Because of life’s responsibilities, wives often forget that God’s Perfect Wedding Gift is a blessing for them as well as for their husbands. This workshop will empower a wife’s desire to love and respect her husband and it will help her realize that doing so is a gift, not a duty. Tina Farewell shares how God rekindled the fire in her marriage and gives an introduction to hormone balance. This workshop is for married women only.

Orchestrating Your Family’s Life: Especially for Moms
Tina Farewell
Though the essence of motherhood is self-sacrifice and the job description changes from moment to moment, we can find balance through obedience to God’s call in each season of our lives. Tina Farewell, mother of five, shares how we can manage it all as we honor our husbands and love our children. She includes an introduction to marital intimacy.

Mentoring: It’s for Women of All Ages
Tina Farewell
Women are often confused and overwhelmed by the challenges of managing their homes and families; in fact, many of them are silently screaming for help. More experienced women have the God-given wisdom to mentor them, in accordance with the responsibilities of older women outlined in Titus 2. Tina Farewell encourages you to be a friend who is willing to share her wisdom, knowledge, and understanding!

A Relationship of God’s Design: A Daughter’s Courtship, Engagement, and Marriage: A Family Affair
Bob & Tina Farewell
When Elizabeth, the Farewells’ oldest daughter, and her future husband were courting, it was truly a family affair. And when Joe asked her to marry him in the front yard at 2:00 A.M., they were being watched from the living room with binoculars! Yes, this is a serious process, but we found ways to have fun as a family. Take a look at at this family-centered way to prepare for marriage. Two of the Farewells’ sons have also married and their stories will be shared as well.
