I wanted to share more about some of the speakers at the recent Homeschool convention. I have enjoyed reading over the books I've purchased from there. Ginger Plowman spoke on parenting and using scripture to train your children. I purchased a chart called Wise words for moms which is great. I encourage you to take a look at it on her site. I have used it a few times already with great success. It lists the behavior problem, heart questions to ask the child, what behavior to put off with a scripture verse and then what behavior to put on with a scripture verse along with extra scriptures that match it.
We also enjoyed listening to Phil Downer speak. He was so encouraging, especially to dads. If you ever have a chance to hear him the definitely take the time. He has a great book called A Father's Reward. It would be a great Father's day present.
I did not get to listen to Teri Maxwell speak but I bought two books of hers that have really encouraged me lately. One is Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet spirit. I have loved this book. I can't wait to go back through slowly with the study guide answering the questions and reading the scriptures. I also bought Managers of their Homes. If you are looking to implement a schedule for you and your children then it's a great book. I think it's time for us to become much more scheduled. I do not plan on having every moment scheduled but at least a morning and afternoon would help us. I'm still working on designing one. She takes you through this process slowly. So your schedule is well thought out and prayed over.
