Here we have archived the speakers, vendors, and schedule for 2011.
Speaker bios, Vendor list, and Schedule have been added!
We are also having a used book fair some of the local families are putting together.
This is our first year in Dayton, but there has been an annual conference in Dayton for several years and we are happy to have the support and help of the former conference organizers so that we can hopefully build on their success instead of starting and entirely new conference.
One of the immediate changes we are able to implement is to make the conference free for attendees.
We also have some great speakers lined up for this year including Prof. Joseph Pearce, Fr. Joseph Mary Brown, and Mrs. Virginia Seuffert.
Although we love children, attendance is restricted to adults, teens accompanied by an adult, and nursing babies.

The Simple Solution to Homeschool Success
Ready to take the plunge into homeschooling, but not sure where to start? You can simplify the process by breaking it down into just a few simple steps. Dealing with doubting relatives, setting up school space, finding support, and choosing curriculum are not as daunting as they seem.
|3:00pm||Fr. Joseph Mary Brown||
Fraternal Charity in the Home and in the World
Jesus Christ has commanded us to love one another as He loves us. How do I incarnate this commandment of love in my family life, workplace, and everyday activities? What does it mean to love as Jesus loves? These and other questions on fraternal charity in the home and the world will be addressed.

|6:00pm||Mrs. Amy Kalscheur||Confessions of a Homeschooling Mom
Is it just me? Am I alone in this? In “Confessions of a Homeschooling Mom,” I open up and tell you about the real reason why I homeschool, the mistakes I’ve made, and the thing that irritates me the most. Through my personal witness, I hope that you can learn the lessons I’ve learned, and rest assured that you’re not alone out there.
|7:00pm||Prof. Joseph Pearce||A Matter of life and Death: The Battle for a True Education
Education is quite simply a matter of life and death. The poisoning of education by the architects of secular fundamentalism, and the culture of death it promotes, can only be countered by a restoration of tradition-oriented learning. Joseph Pearce will discuss the deadliness of the poison and will present the ingredients of the life-giving antidote.

Discover the evidence that proves beyond any reasonable doubt that Shakespeare was a Catholic.

Surviving with God in a Communist POW Camp
Capt. Gruters was a fighter pilot during the Vietnam War and flew over 400 combat missions. He was shot down in 1967 and spent the next 5 years in POW camps, including the notorious “Hanoi Hilton.” In this talk, he relates the incredible experiences of his capture and shares a unique message of how his faith and hope sustained him.
|3:00pm||Mr. Michael Kalscheur||Principal Dad: Dad’s Role in the Homeschool Family
In most homeschooling families, Mom sets the calendar, picks the curriculum, and is the primary teacher, while Dad occasionally helps with some homework. However, Dad needs to take an active role with the homeschooling. This talk will focus on the very important supportive and complementary role that Dad needs to play.
