MACHE Speaker: Kris Cox
“How to find balance in an unbalanced world”

We live in a very fast-paced society that pulls us in many different directions. As parents, there’s
always someone who needs us, something that needs to be cleaned or fixed, or someone who
needs to be fed. For homeschoolers, we also have the many facets of teaching our children not
only the basics of life but also their ABC’s and more. How do we find balance in the midst of
these demands on our time? How do we find rest? This workshop will cover setting priorities,
learning to abide in Christ, discerning His leading on how we use our time, homeschool
scheduling tips, and how to find moments of rest on those stressful and busy days.
