Finish Well is a blog for parents interested in home educating through the high school years. It is produced by Virginia Knowles with help from Cheryl Bastian and earlier articles by Meredith Curtis. We are all veteran home school moms with students in college or beyond, as well as younger ones. We don't post on this blog often, but there's already plenty here to read! Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment!

Meredith, Cheryl and I felt so privileged to present the Finish Well workshops yesterday! We didn't know how many people would show up, so we were so blessed when about 40 ladies arrived. Each of us treasures the opporunity to mentor other mothers through the journey of home educating their children. We will try to post our workshop notes, PowerPoints, and/or videos soon, as well as other resources that will help you along the way. Check back!
Less than a week away! I'm so excited to meet new people and see old friends again! Working on my powerpoint yesterday, I was reminded about how blessed we truly are to educate our children at home. My third daughter will be a senior this year and that means there will only be two left at home the following year. My heart is sad...I have loved these glorious years homeschooling for the Glory of God! I treasure every minute now as the "babies" are growing up! Looking forward to refreshing and encouraging you at "Finish Well"--see you there!
High school classes can be designed to meet both academic requirements and the needs of your children. Meredith Curtis shares how she weaves academic structure with delight-directed learning, using the EZ folder method to keep lesson plans and record keeping simple. Meredith has designed four years of high school classes using living books, customizing classes to her children and to other teenagers. She shares her experiences, offering practical tips to attendees who want to design classes for their high school teens.
This workshop will be offered during session 1 at 10 AM.
Are your teens ready to enter the workplace or college and not be seduced by undermining "vain philosophies"? Meredith will present a way to pass the baton of faith in Jesus to the next generation by establishing the necessary evidence for our faith. She will give vital keys to teaching our teens the relevance of God's Word in politics, economics, science, philosophy, government, religion, and history, shaping their worldview to confront unbiblical views (humanism, socialism, post-modernism, and New Age) which presently face our world today. Our children can be world-changers!
This workshop will be presented during Session 2 at 11:15 AM.
