Plans for the LDS Homeschool Conference in August are coming together better than ever. We have an efficient and creative team this year. What does this mean for you? A new experience.
Where and When
The Conference will be at the South Town Expo Center in Sandy Utah on August 21st and 22nd. Registration will be open soon.
This Center Point Conference is being sponsored by Keystone Education and LDS Education Association to provide you even more resources. Keystone Education is the home of the Theology Tree, LDS homeschool guide books and How to Discover God in Shapes symbology series. The LDSEA supports LDS education by creating a community that shares ideas and resources with all members of the LDS Church who are involved in teaching or sharing the Gospel - whether in the home, the church classroom or in the world.
This year's theme is a quotation by President Boyd K. Packer, “If You Understand the Plan of Happiness and Follow it, What Goes on in the World Will Not Determine Your Happiness.” We have asked many of our presenters to connect the Plan of Happiness to their message. The Plan of Happiness is a unique to the world and it is a key doctrine in the Church of Jesus Christ and a foundational teaching we teach in our homes.
President Packer gave an address to the Seminary Teachers a few years back called The Great Plan of Happiness. He asked teachers to link all their teachings to the Plan of Happiness and then invited them to make a Plan of Happiness book. We, as directors, invite you to do the same, here is how you can participate:
1) Read President Packer’s talk
2) Have a FHE about the Plan of Happiness inviting them to join you
3) Begin your individual books
4) Share your experiences and books with each other, friends, family, our fb group, emailing us and/or bringing them to the conference.
We are excited to be learning from some great presenters like Merrilee Boyack, a BYU Education Week favorite. She is humous and thought provoking. She will be presenting on Teaching Our Children to Tune In to the Spirit and Lead. We are finalizing the rest of the presenters this week and will be getting them up on the website by the end of the month.
