Before we ever meet you, we pray for you and your family by name. We go out of our way to make your feel welcome once you get to Finish Well. Main sessions and workshops are prayerfully chosen to assist parents in homeschooling and parenting. This includes dealing with rebellion, mentoring your teen, making transcripts, creating classes, and going to college debt-free. Some sessions are just for teens. These sessions address issues of importance such as getting along with parents, purity, college success, friendship, and growing in your relationship with Christ.
When You Arrive
When you arrive, you get a welcome packet, name tag, and itinerary. Keep your name tag on. If you have ordered meals, you will get a ticket that you can trade for a delicious lunch on Saturday.
On Friday afternoon, we kick off with airsoft for dads and teens, while the moms meet for a Heart to Heart session. For many moms, this time of encouragement is the highlight of the conference. During the Heart to Heart session, vintage homeschooling moms share honestly their struggles and successes, passing on their wisdom to you. You have the opportunity to ask them questions. At the end of the session, we divide up into prayer groups to pray for one another.
For Teens (and Dads!)
The teens love the airsoft session and many dads join in, too. Not only is this just plain fun, but it’s an opportunity to get to know other teens and parents at the conference.
Dinner Friday night is on your own, but the vendor hall is open. You can run through a drive-thru and bring your food bag to eat at one of the tables set up in the vendor hall.
Friday night begins with worship, followed by a session for the entire family. This year we will be playing Family Feud after our evening session, so be sure to sign up if you want to play.
Saturday morning starts bright and early with our short welcome session, followed by the main session. The rest of the day is spent on the Breakout Sessions of your choice. There are two time slots in the morning and two in the afternoon.
Lunch is served in the vendor hall. You can purchase lunch online before the conference. You are welcome to go out for lunch or bring lunch to eat in the vendor hall.
Our vendor hall is open from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday night and all day Saturday. Please browse and meet our wonderful vendors. They love to chat!
