“She’s so ENCOURAGING!”  That’s what moms say about Marilyn Boyer, homeschooling author and mother of 14. Marilyn’s heartfelt speaking style is both challenging and comforting, her content based on over thirty years of experience in homeschooling her children. Her many years in the trenches have convinced her that the most important part of an education is building godly character. That’s why she created Character Concepts, a Bible-based curriculum for kids from preschool through high school. Learn more of her resources for teaching character to kids at


My Kids Hate School – Setting Them FREE with Passion-Driven Learning 
Do you ever feel like you are trying to explain a concept to your children, and their minds are somewhere far away? Do you feel discouraged when they act like school is a drudge? To help them fulfill their life calling, we must develop a specific plan for training each one. Come and learn how to work “with” your child’s uniqueness. Escape the bondage of expectations and set your child free to pursue his passions and be the whole person God wants him to be. (Warning, kids have been seen giving Mom the elbow when listening to this session.)

Homeschooling and Preschoolers Too? 
What in the world do I do with my preschoolers? Marilyn Boyer has taught all fourteen of her children at home, so she has plenty of experience with any age group you can name. But her favorite age to teach is those eager, curious, exciting, challenging munchkins we call preschoolers. This, Marilyn says, is the time when we lay the foundation for greatness by pouring love and acceptance all over them—instead of treating them like a nuisance. Preschoolers aren’t just little interruptions to be kept “occupied” while older siblings study. This season in a child’s life is the time to tap into his huge potential by maximizing his natural love for learning and helping him to see that God is preparing him for a lifetime of important service. Come and learn from Marilyn how to make your little ones a valuable part of the team!

You Mean, I Can Teach History Like That?
Were you ever bored in history class? So was Marilyn Boyer! History is more than just a boring list of names and dates. It is the breathtaking panorama of human experience! Real people, real lives, real adventures. For nearly forty years, Marilyn has been learning history with her children in a way that is not only fascinating but life-changing. So come and learn how to do history as a family.

Getting it All Done
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the demands of parenting? Life is certainly a challenge for parents, especially those who accept the added responsibility of home education. But there are ways to make life easier and more productive, and this workshop discusses some of those. Marilyn Boyer, mother of fourteen children and a veteran home educator with more than forty years of experience, shares her techniques for accomplishing a mammoth amount of housework while giving her children a superior education at the same time.

Remind Me—Why Am I Doing This, Anyway? 
Life can get so crazy! Sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of why you’re spending so much of your time homeschooling. Wouldn’t it be easier to send them off to school like most people do? In this session, Marilyn Boyer will help you renew your vision (or develop it), sharing why she’s so glad she spent 37 years of her life doing just that.
