Box-Free Living by Diana Waring
Rather than raising children to follow formulas, let us teach them using the principles of discipleship, and then have them "follow me as I follow Christ." And, rather than trying to force your home schooling to look like someone else's, let's learn to hear from the Lord just what is best for your own family. Instead of falling victim to preconceived judgments, from ourselves or from others, let's learn to find God's way for us in this home schooling journey.
The Key To Education is Relationship by Diana Waring
Experts in learning tell us that one of the best predictors of educational success is having a positive relationship between student and teacher. Translated for homeschooling parents: If we build healthy, happy relationships with our children, they will be able to thrive educationally. It goes far beyond desks and multiplication tables, however. For us, it encompasses every aspect of life—since our students are learning with us 24/7! Often we teach, react and parent out of fear which produces feelings of failure and guilt. These negative feelings can impact and even damage those relationships, which in turn affects our children's learning. Discover how to grow these significant relationships as well as say goodbye to those feelings of fear, guilt and failure. Join Diana for an insightful and practical workshop that will give you tools for building and improving these critical connections with our kids.

Not Just Your Average Genius by Diana Waring
In this fast-paced, easy-to-understand workshop, you will distinguish three different grids that impact the unique way each one in your family learns: learning modalities (visual, auditory, kinesthetic); learning styles (feeler, thinker, sensor, intuitor); learning intelligences (interpersonal, intrapersonal, linguistic, spatial, math-logical, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, naturalist). Discover how to honor (not go crazy because of!) that wiggler in your midst; how to create a rich atmosphere for learning that will attract every learner; how to use your children's strengths to learn subjects that are hard for them; most importantly, learn that God delights in the incredibly individualized mechanisms for learning inside each of us! With this insight, including new research on intelligences, you will be able to adapt your teaching strategies and choose your curriculum wisely.

Actively Engage Learning and Actually Enjoy Learning by Diana Waring
One of the biggest questions people ask is, "How do I get my kids to finish their school work?" The deeper question is actually, "How do I get my kids to be self-motivated?" We will examine the answers to these critical questions, and look at specific ways to encourage and assist our children in developing ownership of their education. We must learn the critical difference between controlling and directing; between pushing and releasing; between coercing and facilitating. It is the essence of a master teacher who says, "I can not teach you how to do it, but I can help you learn to do it." This is an interactive and practical workshop that you can put to use immediately!
