Nick Vujicic

Nick Vujicic LIVE: No Arms, No Legs, No Worries!

Midwest Homeschool Convention

Imagine getting through your busy day without hands or legs. Picture your life without the ability to walk, care for your basic needs, or even embrace those you love. Meet Nick Vujicic, born without arms and legs, with no medical explanation or warning for his condition.

But the victory over his struggles, as well as his strength and passion for life today, can be credited to his faith in God. His family, friends, and the many people he has encountered along the journey have inspired him to carry on as well.

For more than twenty years now, Andrew Peterson has been about the business of quietly changing lives in four-minute increments.

Parenting

Culture changes fast these days, and students need trusted guides to help them navigate the tricky waters. Thank God for parents who are committed that their kids learn to love God and obey Him despite all the chaos around us.
—John Stonestreet

Real Faith for the Real World teen track

Real Faith for the Real World Teen Track

Has your teen had their faith questioned by peers, classmates, or co-workers?

As homeschool parents, our responsibility is not to insulate them from life; rather, we must be very intentional in equipping them for the inevitable challenges that they will face—it’s not a matter of if they will face challenges, but when.

Classical Education track

Classical Education

“Classical education is like a very large museum with many beautiful, wonder-filled rooms that could be studied over a lifetime. It is a long tradition of education that has emphasized the seeking after of truth, goodness, and beauty and the study of the liberal arts and the great books.”
—Dr. Christopher Perrin, Classical Academic Press

Charlotte Mason track

Charlotte Mason

Charlotte Mason (1842–1923) was a reformer and pioneer in the field of education. Her philosophy and methods of education are focused on educating the whole person, not just the mind. In her words, “Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life.”

Many homeschooling parents have had great success following Charlotte Mason’s educational methods with their children.

This special track will provide an introduction to Charlotte Mason, as well as more advanced sessions for those already using the Charlotte Mason philosophy and methods.

Special Needs and Gifted Children track

Special Needs and Gifted Children

As homeschool parents work with their children on a one-on-one basis, they are blessed to see firsthand their children’s strengths and also their weaknesses.

And sometimes these findings may take their journeys into unknown places.

Slower readers. Dyslexia. Gifted. And much more.

Thankfully, there are a huge number of homeschooling resources available to leave no family feeling empty-handed or alone.

Great Homeschool Conventions is proud to bring you some of the most well-known experts of Special Needs and Gifted Homeschooling to our conventions.
