|Usborne Books & More
Usborne Books are designed graphically to draw children in, to make them want to learn the material, and to help them retain that knowledge. The magic of Usborne Books is that they make both reading and learning fun. The books are so well organized that children absorb and recell much of the vast amount of information presented.
Panama City, FL
FRIDAY, March 15
|2:30pm||Fr. Edward Murphy||
Many Catholic homes are being assaulted by the anti-Catholic and immoral values of our culture. This talk will present the challenges Catholic families are facing and how to address them. In particular, it will address the problems of social media and peer pressure among our youth by pointing to the need for a greater spiritual and moral vigilance in the home.
|3:30pm||Mrs. Terry Arnold||
Looking for the secrets to homeschooling? Although she can’t promise all of the answers, Mrs. Arnold, as a homeschooling mother of 5 children, will share tips and overviews learned in 20 years of homeschooling. Some topics covered will be “short- term or long-term homeschooling?” “why homeschool for high school?” and “mom versus mom-teacher tips.”
|4:00 – 6:00pm||Vendor Sales/Dinner|
|6:00pm||Lt. Col. Antony Kolenc||
Many people believe we are living in a time of growing darkness. Drawing from Scripture and the experience of the Church in some of her darkest moments, this talk will highlight the many graces God brought to those who persevered through the difficult times. Golden opportunities are here for us too if we look at world events through the eyes of Faith.
|7:00pm||Mrs. Terry Arnold||
Mrs. Arnold has homeschooled for 20 years. Some of those years involved extreme hardships, and the lessons her children learned were as important to the formation of their souls as their textbooks were to their academic development. We hope you will find comfort and encouragement in this story of one family.
