What’s Your Biggest Homeschooling Challenge?

We asked thousands of homeschooling parents this question. Their top response?

“I don’t know how to fit it all in!”

Parenting. Academics. Work. Homemaking. Personal care. Discipleship. Church. Family.
If one area is succeeding, it’s only because everything else is toppling over in the background. (Or so it feels.)
Can You Relate?
I am totally overwhelmed with curriculum decisions and time management issues. Keeping a routine and a clean house seem undoable.”

“My biggest challenge is homeschooling children at various learning levels, plus fitting in the normal household duties.”

I don’t have enough time in the day. I have 6 children and one of them is a toddler. Everyone says they get done shortly after lunch with school, but I have no idea how!

Bottom Line:

Homeschooling + Life = Overwhelm…Right???

WRONG!

You CAN Conquer The Overwhelm Crisis
That’s what this is for:

Sign up today and we promise you’ll have the perfect homeschool life that all your friends will be envious of.

Just Kidding!
You won’t be strangled into perfection. But you will be empowered to rely on God’s grace and seek His wisdom. Through our online video sessions and resource discounts, you will receive God-centered help and hope for:

Deciding what matters to your family

It’s the first step – narrowing your “it” so it’s actually possible for you to fit it in.

Defining a workable homeschool plan

Next up – putting your priorities into actionable strategies so you can make them happen.

Directing your path toward the eternal

And most importantly, knowing God’s purpose for your family will help you say no to distractions – good or bad.

…and all of this in the midst of real life happening.

Because as followers of Jesus Christ, our light can shine in the midst of the craziness to bring Him glory.

You’ve got questions? We’ve got answers.
Sign up for the free event (hurry! Limited time!), and make sure you receive our confirmation email. Then, between October 11-16, 2021 we’ll send you an email each morning with a schedule & links to watch videos, so you don’t have to miss a single session. (And if you like, follow the email instructions to upgrade for lifetime access to everything!)
No problemo! Simply upgrade to the All-Access Pass (after you register for the free version). When you pay for the All-Access Pass, nothing expires – which means you can watch and rewatch that super-helpful session and soak in all the tips.
Super simple – we do the work for you and send you an email each morning of the event. You can click the link in the email to view the schedule for the day, then click the video you’d like to see. Videos are available to view for free for 24 hours from their scheduled launch time, so even if you miss the launch you still have time to catch up. (Each session is about 45 minutes long, and you can watch from your computer, smart TV, or mobile device.)

Yep, for sure! The Exhibit Hall, discounts, and all video sessions are all just that – no cost to you and no strings attached while the event is live (April 5-9, 2021). You can opt to upgrade for lifetime access so you can watch again as much as you like, but that’s up to you.

Nope! No social media account is required to view the video sessions. The keynote sessions are broadcast on Facebook, but we’ll also share them on the website, and all other video sessions are here too.

We encourage you to connect with us via Facebook to participate in some great discussion and Q&A, but it’s not required.

We’re so glad you asked! Homeschool Summits is a project brought to you by CHEC and Generations, both non-profit organizations based in Colorado that exist to help parents raise their children to love and serve God. CHEC is a Colorado-based organization that defends homeschool freedom and helps families to homeschool with confidence. (Learn more here.) Generations is a national organization that offers a daily radio program, family events, curriculum, and more. (Learn more here.) Together, they are working to bring Homeschool Summits to your home.
Back in 2017 we held the original Fitting-It-All-In Summit, and we decided to bring it back with most of the original sessions plus some new ones — so whether this is your first time to participate or you’re returning, you’ll find plenty to help and encourage.
Sure! If you’d like to market this event through your own online platform and receive 50% earnings, learn more here.

Or, if you’d like to learn more about being an exhibitor or speaker, click here.

Short answer = nope! We ARE pulling together a fantastic lineup of speakers and even shopping options, but it won’t replace attending your local homeschool conference. We highly recommend checking with your state organization (find a list here) for more information about their conferences. As awesome as this summit will be, we still believe that the in-person networking of a local conference is invaluable!
If you decide to upgrade your free event registration to an All-Access pass (learn more after registering for the free event), you will be eligible to receive continuing education credit.

Meet your hosts

Daniel & Megan
“We first started homeschooling about 25 years ago… well, our parents did! As homeschool grads, we’re enthusiastic about home education, discipleship, and the church, and we take that into our daily life. We desire to raise our family (three little ones so far!) to know and love Christ wholeheartedly, and we’re grateful for every opportunity to share that passion with others!”

A little more about the rest of us
Homeschool Summits is brought to you by a small team of homeschool parents and grads in the ministries of Generations and CHEC. Through Homeschool Summits, we share resources and encouragement that families need to homeschool with confidence and pass on the faith to their children.

Why all this? Because we’re passionate about reaching the next generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
