For those of you homeschooling in Wisconsin (plus those in other states who like to drive!), here’s some information about an upcoming homeschool conference:
Greetings, Fellow Wisconsin Homeschoolers!
My name is Tina Hollenbeck. I currently serve on the board of the Green Bay Area Christian Homeschoolers (GBACH), and I am writing to invite you and your group members to a special one-day homeschool conference that we are sponsoring on Saturday, April 25, 2009.
On that day, we are hosting a phenomenal, internationally-known speaker (and author of two books published by Moody), Dr. Kathy Koch, the founder and president of Celebrate Kids, Inc. (www.celebratekids.com).
Dr. Kathy is a former university professor of education who was called to start her ministry over 15 years ago. Through Celebrate Kids, she seeks to help “parents, educators, and children of all ages meet their core needs of security, identity, belonging, purpose, and competence in healthy ways. Through a problem-solving framework of these integrated needs, the ministry’s programs…provide solution-focused strategies that improve people’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual health.”
Dr. Kathy is known for sharing key, relevant, and practical truths with passion. Her clarity, illustrations, down-to-earth manner, and humorous style will make it easy for you to listen and learn. The time will fly by and you’ll apply new ideas and see them work within days! And, though she speaks in many venues, April 25 will be homeschool-specific.
During our conference, Dr. Kathy will address two key topics that are extremely relevant to homeschoolers:
Got Hope? Optimistic Living During Challenging Times
How Am I Smart? A Practical Guide to Multiple Intelligences
You can find details about these seminars by going to our website, www.gbach.org.
We would love for many in your group to take a “field trip” and be our guests that day. :^) And any who register by January 18, 2009, will receive an amazing 33% discount off the full conference price. What’s more, one registration fee (of only $30 by January 18) covers either an individual (if only one from a family can attend) or the cost of a husband and wife and any children in grade six or above!
I would greatly appreciate if you could pass on this information to every Wisconsin homeschooler you know (and, actually, virtual schoolers are welcome as well) as soon as possible, especially so that those interested might be eligible for the steepest discount.
Any interested individual or family can simply print out the registration form and return it with the proper fee to the address listed on the form. Of course, if you or anyone in your group has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be more than happy to provide any additional information or clarifications.
We look forward to hearing from you and your group members – and to meeting many of you on Saturday, April 25, 2009.
Tina K. Hollenbeck
