Come hear from and be mentored by our featured speakers, homeschool moms and leaders, Susan Chrisman ( and Crystal Wagner ( Other veteran educators will also be sharing in various workshops, immersions, and a panel Q&A.

Susan is a wife, grandmama, twenty-five year homeschool veteran, mentor, speaker, and ardent pursuer of God. She and Jerry have five children and seven grandchildren. Susan guides families to understand and address the issues of child behavior—development, habits, and the will. She mentors home educating parents to lead their families away from conflict and confusion and direct them instead to transformed behavior through deeper, more meaningful relationships. You can learn more about Susan at

Crystal writes and speaks about the challenges and joys of living intentionally and creating a place of refuge for her family. Her mission is to help busy homeschool moms conquer overwhelm so they can live intentional, purpose-filled days. Crystal and her husband, Jason, live in Oklahoma and homeschool their two daughters. You can connect with her online at

We have scheduled in downtime to mingle and fellowship, with all snacks, refreshments, Friday pizza night, and Saturday lunch included–and no dishes to wash! Come make a girls’ weekend of it, drink a cuppa, laugh, learn, and be inspired!
