Homeschool Mom Survives the Crazy

It’s Free, Thanks To Our Generous Sponsors

Does homeschooling + parenting keep you pretty much permanently exhausted?

We’re right there with you — parenting is a monumental task in itself. Add in home education and “craziness” becomes an understatement.

The good news is that you can never,

– not in a million years –

raise successful kids on your own.

Meet Your Hosts

A Homeschool Summit is a bit different than most events. Why? Well, one big reason is Daniel & Megan. Get to know them a little here for a taste of what’s to come.

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. (Daniel operates an accounting firm and is the founder of LifeLaunch; Megan runs the home, participates in the family business, and loves being mom!)

Because of how our parents invested in us so faithfully, even on the hardest days, we have a great desire to raise our own children to know and love Christ wholeheartedly, and we love every opportunity to share that passion with others.

Which brings us here! As hosts for Homeschool Summits, we meet with each speaker from our living room (with a little one sleeping nearby!) to hear their wisdom and ask them personalized questions.

Both of us have been a part of the ministries of CHEC and Generations for years, so joining Homeschool Summits came next. As a part of the team, it’s our privilege to help bring Christian families the resources and encouragement they need to homeschool with confidence and pass on the faith to their children.

We’re honored to be your hosts and we can’t wait to begin!

You’ve Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers.

Step 1: Sign up for free access to selected sessions now.
Step 2: Check your email for a link to the sessions and stay tuned for other updates from Homeschool Summits.
Step 3: If you like, follow instructions to upgrade and watch all 25 videos from the event!

Super simple — just open your confirmation email, click the link, play the video, and stream it onto your device. Each video is about 45 minutes long, and you can watch from your computer, smart TV, or mobile device.

Yep, for sure! The vendor hall, discounts, and selected videos listed for free on this page are all just that – no cost to you and no strings attached. (You can opt to register for an All-Access Pass to get even more exclusive video content, but that’s up to you.)

Nope! No social media account is required to view the video sessions. The live keynote and each morning devotion will be broadcast on Facebook, but we’ll also share them on our website, and all other video sessions are right 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.

They are the ministries behind Homeschool Summits. Based in Colorado, both organizations exist to help parents raise their children to love and serve God. CHEC is a state organization that fights for homeschool liberty and helps parents get started homeschooling and stay the journey. (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.

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 a vendor 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.
