Time and Home Management: Managing Life and Home While Homeschooling - Nancy Bjorkman
   Fri. @ 4:00
Time Management does NOT mean scheduling. It includes scheduling. Time must be budgeted just like money. We must determine the difference between the fixed – what we must do, and the discretionary – what we would like to do, and set our priorities. This workshop will be filled with practical tips and encouragement for everyday living as a homeschool family. Areas covered include understanding your calling, relationships, schooling, household clutter and cleaning, and general household management. Attendees will leave with practical and applicable tips.
