Private Christian Homeschooling is a very important step towards discipling the next generation of Christ followers. It provides the most pure form of transfer through preparation
of our children with the tools to succeed in the world with the character and foundation of following Christ. Yet as important and rewarding as it is, homeschooling presents parents
with challenges that they are sometimes skittish about accepting. Many parents feel ill equipped even as they encourage themselves with the hope of children who will ultimately enter
the world ready to serve Christ in a fallen world.
When you're new to homeschooling, it is sometimes good to know someone who went ahead of you is looking to invest in you. So this month, we want you!
We want homeschooling parents (and those eligible to become homeschooling parents) to come report for this month's exciting talk, Home School Boot Camp! This event will empower and
encourage you, as you have enlisted in the service of God and answered the calling to train up your children in the ways
of the Lord. You will learn some of the most important basics about private Christian homeschooling with bridges to more advanced and/or specialized needs.
Michaela Roekle will be our keynote speaker for the evening. She will be sharing practical homeschooling truths and Christ-centered encouragement based
on a “Boot Camp” theme. Her down to earth style, sprinkled with plenty of real-life stories and experiences to share, from growing up in a homeschooling family to
homeschooling her own littles, tweens and teens, will provide the framework and foundation you need to begin and/or continue homeschooling your own children!.
Bring your homeschooling questions for the open Q&A time and gain new understanding and fresh insight, on topics such as:
- Basic Training: Gear, Equipment and Mindset,
- Prepare for Battle: The Armor of God,
- A Troop for the Journey: Better and Stronger Together, and
- Strategizing with The General: A Home Centered Learning Plan
Don't miss this month's meeting! Invite a friend to come (with their spouse) - they'll be glad you did!
Michaela Roekle was homeschooled from first grade through graduation. She

satellite school in Corona California (http://www.graceandgloryacademy.org).
The Roekle’s also serve as Regional Advisory Board Members for CHEA (Christian
