I want you to QUIT homeschooling.

 

Yes, I’m serious.

I’m Danielle Papageorgiou, a lifeschoolingTM veteran of 17 years, since I count birth as day 1 of our children’s education. I have three amazing kids who love God, love their family, and love lifeschoolingTM!

I didn’t always have the lifeschoolingTM mindset, though. While I’ve never fully embraced the “school-at-home” approach, like most homeschoolers, I’ve had to let go of many of my preconceived ideas of education over the years.

 

You see, when I first started, I did what most of us do.

 

I went to see an “expert” – a school teacher turned sales lady who told me I needed to purchase kindergarten curriculum.

And not just the “three Rs” of Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic, mind you. Oh no, we had to have everything, right down to kindergarten music curriculum.

Homeschool kindergarten music class, people. <insert eye roll>

I don’t think I need to tell you that it flopped. Big time. The first day, I took my little one through about five hours of work and even he, studious as he was, was fried by the end of the day.

But this is what the curriculum said to do.

I was following the Scope and Sequence. In fact, we even skipped over a few activities and lessons!

 

Fortunately, I knew enough to give up early and that was the end of our little school-at-home experiment (debacle).

 

I listened to my motherly intuition, wised up, and moved on.

And today that story makes me laugh. But it also makes me cry because I know there are so many other homeschooling moms out there that continue to press on with what they think is “the right way” to homeschool. (Perhaps you are one of them?)

You see, I’ve learned the secret to a peaceful, joyful, successful homeschool… and it’s not more curriculum or longer days.

 

I’ve learned that homeschooling doesn’t have to be hard.

I’ve learned that lifeschoolingTM is the key.

 

“Lifeschooling?” you say? “What’s that?”

Lifeschooling is the individualized process of discovering your child’s God-given gifts and talents, primarily through real life experiences that happen within the context of your family’s unique situations and missions.

If you want to read a full description of the definition, you can read the blog post “What is lifeschoolingTM?” here. It’s not unschooling (though I like some of those “unschooly” elements)!

My older two children are teens now, and I continue to be amazed at what the Lord has done through our lifeschoolingTM journey.

If you’ll permit me a little “mom-brag moment,” let me share just a few of their accomplishments (after all, they are the “product”)…

 

  • Konur (17) is at or beyond the level of an IT professional (his dad is one, so he knows!)
  • He has a wide understanding of historical facts, particularly WW2 (that I did not teach him)
  • He just starred in a professional grade movie his 14-year-old lifeschoolingTM friend produced.
  • He is currently working on a book project with another friend.
  • He sometimes spends hours in Bible reading and prayer and has a relationship with the Lord that convicts me!
  • Elleina (15) is an amazing artist (my dad and I are artists, so we know!)
  • She started writing a book, No Return, at age 8 and published it at 13
  • She played a role in the award-winning movie Like Arrows, produced by the Kendrick brothers and Family Life.
  • Korban (7) constructs some pretty amazing Lego creations
  • He has learned many basic math concepts through play, without using curriculum

 

Truly, I don’t believe we would have this homeschooling story if it weren’t for lifeschoolingTM.

 

And I want to share all my secrets with you! This conference is for you if you’ve ever…

  • Felt like there weren’t enough hours in the day
  • Wondered how these “superwomen” seem to do it all
  • Felt like it’s simply impossible to get everything you’re “supposed to” done
  • Wondered why homeschooling just doesn’t seem to work for your family
  • Struggled with kids who hate homeschooling
  • Felt guilty for not doing enough

 

When you join us, you are going to learn…

  • What the homeschool pioneers did to make their children so successful
  • How character training can make the days go smoother
  • Why allowing your children to pursue their passions is key to their success
  • How your methods of homeschooling may be damaging your relationships
  • Why you should continue lifeschoolingTM through high school
  • And more!

 

And what’s even better?

It’s FREE!!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

All of the info you’re sharing, the podcasts, videos, speaker links, etc. have been so encouraging. I see God clearly leading down the path more and more with lifeschooling. To know others are successfully following that path and understanding how is a huge blessing. I’ve been on the path for many years but didn’t really have a name for how God was impressing me, just trusting Him to lead with great wisdom and understanding. He has abundantly.

Thank you for the conference! Thank you for organizing such a phenomenal group of speakers. Thank you for the freedom from curriculum and the reminder and permission that it’s all about God and relationships. Thank you for helping me redefine our mission and vision from being homeschoolers to being life-schoolers. Thank you for reminding me of the joy I feel when I’m just spending time with my children. Thank you for reminding me that I’m a mother first and foremost. Your conference was my last ditch effort before i pulled the plug on our homescool “experiment”. This year I’ll be doing 11th grade, 8th grade, 3rd grade and kinder. Curriculum for all these grades is more then I can bear and has caused me sleepless nights and stressed out days. There is freedom in Christ and your conference helped me to remember that – THANK YOU!

Thank you, Danielle, for putting on an excellent LifeschoolingTM Conference! Our family drove from Savannah, GA to attend and it was well worth the drive. My husband and I were so encouraged by the speakers and our whole family made new friends who we’ve kept in contact with. It was so refreshing and reassuring to know that not only are we not alone in this journey of “lifeschooling” but that it works. God has created each of our children with unique gifts and abilities and we are confident that teaching our kids to love learning and focus on what they are passionate about will prove successful in the end.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is this conference really free?

Yes! If you purchase a Free Ticket, you have access to all sessions for a limited time at no cost! However, the Free Ticket does not include the Swag Bag, LifeschoolingTM Planner, $25 gift card, or 2016 and 2017 conference recordings, and viewing is limited to the weekend of the event. For your convenience, you may pay to upgrade to an All-Access Ticket or a Premium Access Ticket and enjoy more perks, plus lifetime viewing.

What makes this conference so special?

The LifeschoolingTM Conference is the only conference dedicated to helping those who call themselves “lifeschoolers.” We don’t allow just anyone to speak, but carefully consider and pray over who we present to you as one of our speakers. Not only do we bring you a high caliber of speakers, but you have the opportunity for Q&A time after, and we give you all this content for free!

Of course, we hope you see the incredible value and decide to purchase an upgraded ticket so you will always have access to this information. It also helps us to continue offering these events. But either way, we hope it’s a blessing!

Where can I view the sessions?

Each day, we will be releasing the videos at the scheduled times on a page on our website. We will e-mail daily so you don’t forget to watch! You can also join our 2019 Lifeschooling Conference Facebook group to watch the Facebook Live Q&A after each session.

Is this a good substitute for attending my local homeschool convention?

No! For two years, we hosted this conference as a live, in-person event because we believe so strongly in the power of personal connections and face-to-face interactions. However, since Danielle (the director of the event) is still lifeschooling her own children, she decided an online event would be easier and allow more people unable to travel to attend.

Our hope is that you will still attend a local convention and make those valuable connections. And we hope to return to a live event in Charlotte, NC someday in the future!

What payment types do you accept?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover cards only. Contact us if you wish to pay by check.

Can I get a refund on my tickets?

All tickets are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by us, in which case we will always provide a full refund.

I run a business. How can I promote to homeschoolers?

We love to help promote businesses that are homeschool-related. For all the details, please see the sponsor page. You may also wish to sign up as an affiliate.

As a sponsor, may I get a refund if I am unable to participate?

All tickets are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by us, in which case we will always provide a full refund.
