Feedback

(Additional feedback and references available upon request.)

“I realized I had a neutral view of math. I suppose I never really considered it could be taught from a biblical perspective…I love that all the glory is given to God.”
– Shannon Kleckner, homeschool mom

“This speech was extremely encouraging for me! Just what I needed to hear at this point in my life. It especially spoke to me since the words came from a homeschool graduate herself, and not a homeschool mom!”
Kim Wood, homeschool mom

“I loved her honesty and transparency. Very encouraging to hear a child’s perspective!”

“I loved the encouragement to seek our amazing God in every area of life. What a wonderful reminder—and good practical advice on implementation in the area of mathematics.”

“Katherine’s information is transforming my view of math!”

Workshop Descriptions

Math from a Biblical Worldview?
We see God’s hand in science and history, but what about in math? While most of us have come to look upon math as “neutral,” it’s not! Worldviews do matter in math—and there’s much more to looking at math from a biblical worldview than adding a scripture or Bible word problem to the lesson. Come discover biblical principles that make math come alive and give math meaning, helping children really understand what they’re learning. Find out how “neutral” presentations are really not neutral. Leave equipped to begin looking at and teaching math from a new perspective!

Revealing Arithmetic
How can counting, addition, multiplication, fractions, exponents, and other concepts in arithmetic be taught in such a way that children learn to see and use them as a God-given tool—and worship the Lord in math? In this workshop, Katherine will explore several arithmetic concepts, offering ideas and inspiration to help you transform your math class.

Revealing Geometry
What worldview is coming across in your student’s geometry class? In this workshop, Katherine looks past the proofs and constructions we typically see as geometry, offering ideas on how to teach it as a real-life, God-given tool that points us to the Creator. We’ll touch on various concepts, from basic shape identification up to proofs and theorems.

Revealing Algebra
Overwhelmed by variables and exponents? In this workshop, Katherine cuts through the confusion, revealing algebra for what it is: a method of recording the consistencies God created and sustained. Leave with a new outlook on algebra and ideas on how to teach it from a biblical perspective.

Homeschooling: God Is Sufficient
Unsure of your ability to homeschool your children? Feel like giving up on a rebellious child? Carrying concerns about some aspect of homeschooling? Join Katherine, a homeschool graduate, as she reflects back on her homeschooling years, including periods of rebellion and isolation. Interwoven with personal examples, Katherine shares the scripture verses and lessons that God gave her family during her homeschooling years. Be encouraged that God is sufficient for whatever you might be facing.

Getting Real: Child Training That Counts (Cris Loop)*
You want your children to have good character. You want to raise them appropriately. But how? Join Cris Loop as she shares the struggles she had trying to figure out character issues—-and the freedom she experienced when she finally caught sight of the truth. You’ll be challenged to get real-—and to the heart of child training.

Why to Homeschool Through High School*
Thinking about putting your children in public/Christian school for high school? Come listen as a father and daughter (who is now a homeschool graduate) share how tempted they were to give up on homeschooling at times, and how grateful they are now that they kept going through high school. This workshop squarely addresses the reasons why many people give up on homeschooling through high school, offering both personal examples and scriptural encouragement to keep going.

Socialization: Understanding the Issue and Sorting Out the Options*
Could the socialization activities in which you’re participating actually be harming your child? Cris Loop, a homeschool mother, and Katherine Loop, a homeschool graduate, address the often misunderstood issue of socialization from both a parent’s and a child’s perspective. Get your socialization questions answered and discover ways to give your child the skills they need to socialize without putting them in peer groups all the time. This workshop answers questions such as: Do parents need to worry about getting their children around other children? How should Christians go about sorting through the myriad of activities available? And many others!

Delighting in This Season: Encouragement for Young Ladies
Here at last is a session geared specifically for young ladies! Join Katherine, a homeschool graduate, as she addresses common struggles young ladies face both as they approach graduation and after they graduate, and offers a vision for truly delighting in this season of life. If you’re a young lady or a parent of a young lady, you won’t want to miss this encouraging session!

*Bios and photos are available upon request for Katherine’s mom and dad (Cris and Bob Loop). One of them usually accompanies Katherine to conventions to help with the booth anyway, and they are both happy to speak if at the convention.
