A Personal Invitation This Whole Heart event is offered in partnership with Agape Family Schools, Loveland, CO (agapefamilyschools.org), serving Northern CO homeschoolers. W e hope you will join us for this special home education workshop. Since 1994, we have had the privi- lege to come alongside fami- lies like yours to encourage and equip them as Christian A Christian Home Education Workshop parents. This new version of a trusted workshop intro- With wholehearted authors and speakers duces a new generation of homeschool families to the WholeHearted Learning model that Clay & Sally Clarkson we have used and taught in our 20+ years of homeschooling. It is fully explained and explored in the new Third Edition of our book, Educating the WholeHearted Child, coming this fall. Early in our own homeschooling journey, it became clear to us that our children naturally loved reading and being read to, talking about their insights and ideas, learning through real life, and having time to explore and learn on their own. In contrast, textbooks and formal curricula were often artificial, lifeless, and tedious. WholeHearted Learning is about liberating the learning journey in your home, and setting your children free to learn the way God designed them to learn. Once you understand the model’s easily-remembered five focused areas of study, you will be able to implement them in your homeschooling to liberate learning in your own home. Home education will never be the same! Our prayer is that you will leave this workshop equipped and encouraged to return to your home with a new vision and direction as a homeschooling parent, but even more as a Chris- Discover the joy and freedom tian parent.
