Build an Educational Foundation for Your Child
That Will Last a Lifetime with the
GHC E3 Bundle!
Educate. Encourage. Equip.
As a homeschooling parent, you have clearly resolved that the training and education of your children is a top priority. Sure, you know that homeschooling isn’t easy…but you also know it is so worth it!
And when you discover a new homeschooling idea or parenting strategy that really works for your family…it’s truly priceless!
Here at GHC we host annual regional conventions that equip, educate and encourage…and that are a lot of fun for the entire family! However, we’re very aware that many factors may make it impractical for many homeschool families to come to one of our conventions, and other families may not realize what a blessing they are missing.
In fact, many of our first-time convention attendees have told us that, had they known how incredible the convention was going to be, they would have attended years earlier!
Bring the Excitement & Educational Power of a GHC Regional Convention to Your Home with the E3 Bundle!
We don’t want you and your children to miss out on the exciting education, equipping, and encouragement that our conventions provide.
That’s why we’re doing something that we’ve never done before: we’re taking 30 of our best workshop sessions, packaging them up (together with three very special bonus gifts), and bringing them directly to you with our E3 Bundle.
This bundle is:
These workshops provide actionable ideas and strategies that you can immediately put in to practice, both as a homeschooler and parent.
These workshops are led by experienced homeschoolers and experts who truly care about your success and are eager to share their insights and experience with you.
These workshops will help you enhance your homeschooling and parenting efforts without having to compromise your budget.
These sessions are all available right now via online streaming access on this site.
Here’s a complete list of the audio workshops you’ll get when you purchase the E3 Bundle:
30 Years Later: What I Would Do Differently
Homeschooling nine children over the past 30 years has been a joy-filled experience, but not an experience void of frustration, confusion, and regret. Learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of a few of my friends, and be encouraged to make changes in your homeschooling journey so that you can complete the course without major regrets.
Attention: Why It Comes First and How to Cultivate It
Our culture and the environment we have created relentlessly assaults our children's senses and their minds. The result is nothing less than a cultural attention deficit. This workshop claims that what we pay attention to and how we pay attention to it are the most formative (and therefore important) thing about us. Why so important? How can we cultivate attentiveness in our children and ourselves? Listen and think!
Blood and Morality
What early-twentieth century writer made a bet with a friend that he could write a book more famous than Treasure Island (and won)? Martin Cothran tells this story and many others about the writers who produced many of the great adventure books for boys, books that invoked a vision of masculinity that at once taught readers how to deal with the challenges of life and what moral code they should live by. In the process, you will learn why these stories speak to boys in a way that other books do not—and why that is not only okay, but good.
Build an Amazing Homeschool Transcript
There is only one secret ingredient to giving credibility to a homeschool transcript. If you don’t know it, author Jean Burk will share the answer in this incredible lecture. Discover the insider criteria that Harvard uses to judge applicants and why summer break needs to be more than just a vacation.

Find out about the 3-tier credit plan, so you can correctly build a portfolio that will impress any admissions counselor. If your kids are planning to go to college, you cannot afford to miss this engagement.
Could It Be a Learning Disability?
When a homeschooled child seems to flounder for no easily-identified reason, parents often exhaust themselves in their search for answers. At some point, a parent may wonder if there might be a learning disability at the root of their child’s struggle. Kristen and her husband have designed this workshop to help parents sort out the difference between routine struggles and those that could well be a learning disability.
Dyslexia, AD(H)D, Processing Disorders: Overcoming the Obstacles and Embracing the Gifts

This presentation will give you new insight, understanding, and techniques to help your children find their potential and overcome their obstacles. It is time for a paradigm shift in understanding these amazing kids. It all starts here!
Fitting Mom Back Into Motherhood
You take care of all those little people, and that big guy too, but sometimes mom gets lost. We call these seasons, "The Dark Ages." But you know from your children's history lessons that the literal Dark Ages always preceded a Renaissance! This session walks you through simple self-care to deep soul care, that we might journey out of the dark and into the light again.
P.S.—we will even cover how to communicate our often-elusive needs to our husbands.
Five Keys for Creating a Strong Family in a Selfish World

Homeschooling and the Dangers of Federalized Education
How did we get here? Recent educational overreaches—from Common Core to the radical expansion of meaningless high-stakes testing—have finally awakened parents across the county to the ongoing transformation of education that has occurred right under our noses. We have rapidly moved from an educational system emphasizing knowledge-based mastery of subject matter to an ideological and politicized approach that diminishes achievement and excellence in favor of social justice indoctrination and utilitarian mediocrity. This talk traces the evolution of this transformation: from the atheist and socialist ambitions of such “founders” of American public education as Horace Mann and John Dewey, through the rise of progressive utopians like Rockefeller, to the advent of the NEA and the leftist take-over of our classrooms championed by anarchists like Bill Ayers. One cannot fully understand the shocking recent developments in education without understanding the hundred-year progression of events and figures that brought us to this pass.
How to Cultivate Habits of Lifelong Learning
If education is an “atmosphere, a discipline, and a life” as Charlotte Mason suggested, it is much more than just a few hours of school each day. What are the qualities of a lifelong learner, and how can you help your student become one? We’ll look at ways to create a learning-friendly atmosphere and life, including how to establish good habits and affordably build a quality home library.
How to Make Language Arts Fun, Whatever Your Curriculum
You want your children to be good readers and writers, but they don’t seem to share your goal. In this session, you’ll learn the secrets to motivating reluctant readers and writers. Forget grammar groans and the “eww”s that English gets you now. Your kids will learn to love language arts!
My Child Can Read, So Why Can’t He Spell?
Did you know that 47% of high-frequency words in English are NOT phonetic? And did you know that no matter how well you read, research says you still have to “go through” spelling stages to get those tough words into long term memory? We will explain the five spelling stages and then discuss the most efficient way to get your child quickly to the next level…without tears or tests!
Nerf Guns and Shaving Cream: Teaching Reading and Spelling to Kids Who Can’t Sit Still
Engage your active learners through movement, and let the fun begin! In this workshop, Christy Jones will reveal the natural kinesthetic components to reading and spelling and teach parents how to tap into them to enhance learning for all students. As she shares stories of teaching her active crew, you will discover the God-given gifs of kinesthetic learners and how to work with them rather than against them. Although this workshop will focus on reading and spelling, the concepts are easily applied to other subjects.
Seven Lessons We Learned from the First Four Years
Michael and Jessica Somerville are entering their fifth year of homeschooling their three daughters. In this session, Michael reflects on some of the lessons that they learned along the way. As second-generation homeschoolers, Michael and Jessica thought that their learning curve would not be all that steep. Wrong! Listen in as Michael shares what we hope will inform and encourage others.
Seven Traits of an Imperfectly Effective Parent
This session will cover seven traits identified through clinical experience, literature, and research of effective, connected, and thriving parents. The reality is that each parent also brings imperfections from their history, experiences, perceptions, and overall humanity. Parenting can be difficult, fun, stressful, amazing, and humbling all at the same time. Learn how to grow as an imperfect parent with the seven traits and God’s grace, guidance, and strength.
Teaching Elementary Science Using History as a Guide
There are two main ways that science is taught today. The first method, called the spiral approach, teaches a wide range of topics every year, and students spend a little time on each topic. However, every few years, the topics are revisited, and students learn them in more depth. This method produces a high level of recall but is generally boring for students, as they feel that they are repeating a bunch of material unnecessarily. The second method, called the immersion approach, has students spend all semester (or even all year) on a single topic. Students learn that topic in depth and then move on, never revisiting the topic again. This is less repetitive, but it produces lower recall, and students tend to learn the later topics better than the earlier topics, because they mature as time goes on.
In this seminar, Dr. Jay L. Wile discusses a different method for teaching science in the elementary years: covering science topics chronologically. Science was learned in a definite, chronological sequence as early scientists developed ideas that were tested and improved by later scientists. If science is taught this way, students cover a wide range of topics each year and then revisit many of them as they were improved by later scientists. This has a lot of similarities to the spiral approach, but when students revisit a topic, it is not just repetition with a little more depth thrown in. The student learns the topic in the context of a new scientist and his improvements on the idea. This produces the high levels of recall that the spiral approach produces, but it is more interesting to the students. It also gives students a more realistic view of how science is done in the real world.
Teaching the Classics from Seuss to Socrates: Literary Analysis for Everyone
Does the subject of literature seem like a mystery? Are you a loss about how to understand it yourself, much less teach it to your kids? This inspiring lecture demonstrates that everything you need to know about understanding and teaching literature is present in your second grader’s bedtime story. Adam reads a classics children’s story out loud and then leads the audience into a discussion of eternal literary themes. Along the way, he shows how you can do the same at home by following five simple steps. Your literature curriculum—to say nothing of family story time—will come alive automatically. You’ll never put the kids to bed the same way again!
Teens Overcoming Learning Challenges
Teens who struggle with reading, writing, focusing, or organizing can make great progress when homeschooled. Veteran homeschooler Kathy Kuhl gives strategies for teaching teens who don’t get on with textbooks, or struggle with time management, attention, handwriting, and other issues. She discusses life skills and social skills, as well as helping your teen get accommodations for college boards, in college, and at work.
The Minds of Boys: Teaching Boys Effectively
The male brain is a wonderful and challenging learning tool that benefits from our deep understanding of how it works. From that understanding come boy-specific strategies and techniques than help boys successfully learn the whole curriculum. Dr. Gurian’s book, Boys and Girls Learn Differently
, was the first major international resource to call for gender-specific teaching and learning for school age children. His The Minds of Boys
further specified science-based techniques that had been proven effective with more than 20,000 boys. His latest book, Saving Our Sons
, goes even more deeply into what boys need, especially in a technological world. In this session Michael reveals strategies and techniques to help the male mind learn and grow most effectively.

Using the Socratic Method: Teaching Your Kids to Think
I use the Socratic method (a carryover from law school) extensively in my homeschool. The Socratic method teaches kids how to think, how to analyze and synthesize information, how to organize their thoughts, and how to clearly articulate them. You can do this with young kids as well. In this presentation, I’ll discuss what it is, why it’s a great method to incorporate, and how to effectively use it.
What Your Kids Will Hear About Christianity: Understanding the Five Big Challenges Posed by a Secular World
- There is no God.
- All religions are basically the same.
- Miracles are impossible.
- The Bible is hopelessly ancient and unreliable.
- Science disproves God.
These messages (and many more) are constantly being promoted by a secular world and are likely to challenge your kids’ faith eventually…especially if you haven’t prepared them first. This session will address what parents most need to understand about each of the “big five” challenges to faith today and how to effectively talk about them with your kids.

Who Gets to Decide What’s Normal? Finding Success for All Kinds of Learners

Here’s an entertaining and informative look at how individual learning styles in the homeschool setting can provide amazing opportunities for all kinds of students to love learning for the rest of their lives.
Why Children Must Play to Learn
We can all plainly see that children love to play. If you are honest with yourself, don’t you like to play too? In previous centuries, parents were content to let their children romp and play for hours every day, and no doubt some of the most deeply-retained lessons of life were derived from play, adventure, conflict, and drama—all learned in the world of play. It was Plato who first suggested that education should begin in play: “Don’t use force in training the children in the studies, but rather play. In that way you can better discern what each is naturally directed towards” (Republic, Book VII). If education begins in play, why do we so often cut it short? If play is integral to a child’s education, why isn’t our teaching more playful? In what ways can we playfully teach and integrate play into our curriculum without lapsing into a fluffy, “educational” amusement? In this seminar we will trace the origin and insights of “playful” education while discussing the ways it can be blended to serve a robust curriculum.
