Group Leader Teleseminar was Outstanding!

It was really wonderful.

If you didn't get to join with us on Tuesday for the teleseminar with THSC's Lyndsay Lambert, you missed out! She really shared her heart with us. Her words were exactly what was needed to encourage and strengthen leaders before, during and after conflict.

This recorded talk with Lyndsay Lambert is so important that we are looking for ways to have it available to you and all other homeschool group leaders. It is so important because she explained beautifully the steps to take that truly work to resolve conflict; the deeper roots that can lead to win/win negotiations; and the hidden paths to full forgiveness. Not every conflict will always work out, but she encouraged us to never give up praying for the others or for resolution.

Keep checking back with us, so that you can find out how to get your copy of "Conflict Resolution with Lyndsay Lambert" from

Have a peaceful day,

The Top Four Traps for Homeschool Group Leaders to Avoid!

We are excited about offering this free mini-course for leaders.

Born of our own experiences, this course is designed to warn you of certain pitfalls that homeschool group leaders can face.

For example, we remember how in the beginning we were clueless on how to handle a lot of different, strong personalities on the leadership team. As a team, we had to learn the fine art of giving up one's own rights for the rights of another.

This course will give you an alertness to those dangers that we didn't have and hopefully save you a lot of time and pain. When you heed the warning signs out there, you can steer clear of the danger and successfully lead your group.

Happy Trails!

Expanding Your Newsletter for Homeschool Families

Homeschooling is all about

  • loving to learn

  • learning for life &

  • living to serve.

You, as the homeschool group leader, can facilitate all of this and more in your group's families when you expand your newsletter to include student work.

Give volunteer assignments to the students of your homeschool group covering the topics you need written in the newsletter. Each writer will learn crucial interviewing skills, journalism techniques, and grammar applications. Let them use and become proficient in the publishing software programs. Add an optional photo to the assignment and watch them shine as they put it all together in a great article.

As they have fun learning, they will gain practical skills they can use in the "real world." Their contributions will serve the whole group. And you will be able to share your work-load. It's a win-win!

**We have some exciting news coming up--maybe as soon as our next post!
