6. Coming up on HSLDA @home e-vents

If you're like most homeschooling parents, a new school year can bring
anticipation, excitement, and--let's be honest--anxiety. As we
consider the magnitude of the task of homeschooling, it is easy to
feel overwhelmed.

On Tuesday, September 15 at 9:00 p.m. (ET), author, speaker, and
homeschooling mother Zan Tyler reminds us that God's Word provides
hope, encouragement, motivation, and comfort, and shows us how to draw
these things out of Scripture. There is Good News for all of us!

In this webinar, Zan first points us to God's promises, then, in light
of those promises, addresses common concerns and questions
homeschooling mothers face with each new school year. Be encouraged
and inspired by truth from God's Word!

Then, later that week, find out whether college is the best next step
for your bright, well-educated, well-socialized homeschooled student.
If college is not part of the plan, where do you find resources and
apprenticeships to help guide your student through the process of
vocational preparation and calling?

Get practical tips and insightful apprenticeship advice in this
webinar by HSLDA attorney and homeschooling father Michael Donnelly.
Join us on Wednesday, September 16 at 9:00 p.m. (ET) for help and
information in planning for your students' unique future.

Tune in to this week's @home e-vents to find encouragement and
inspiration for helping your children grow and learn at home!

Space is limited for these e-vents, so register today! For more
information, or to register, go to http://www.hslda.org/athome.
