Mary and Martha Decide to Homeschool - A Workshop for Mary’s Only!
Let’s pretend that Mary and Martha decide to homeschool. Following their character, Martha would probably have all her plans in place (and be frustrated), and Mary would probably be at the feet of Jesus (and way behind schedule.) We all have a little of Mary and Martha is us, but this workshop is designed to encourage Mary’s who love the Lord and their children, but need help and structure to successfully homeschool. The presenter of this workshop is a self-proclaimed Mary (Linda Lacour Hobar, author of The Mystery of History) who managed to homeschool for 17 years, and still likes to talk about it.

Come discover the richness that simplicity can bring to your schedule, your home, and your children’s education.

You will leave encouraged and inspired to take on motherhood with fierce authenticity!
