We have completed most of the recordings and I personally have learned so much. Here is a sampling:
Welcome to Called to Learn
Allow me show you how we have renovated the LDS Homeschool Conference:
The Called to Learn Conference is designed for all those that want to increase their spirituality, strengthen their family relationships and want more gospel centered resources for their personal and home education.
Come hear stories, tips and ideas from October 24 through November 4th, except Sundays, each day at 1pm. If you miss the first "live" session you can catch the recording for the next 48 hours or you can upgrade to get all the recordings for $7/month.

A few weeks ago a question came up on our Facebook group, “How do you incorporate the gospel into your schooling?” The answers greatly varied. I complied a list of their suggestions:
How do YOU incorporate the gospel into your schooling?
We interviewed our KEYNOTE speaker today - Victor Ludlow! He told us about his study he personally designed so we took all of our equipment to his house and interviewed him in his amazing office/study. It was beautiful. We actually had a miss communication and showed up 45 minutes late. He graciously welcomed us in and allowed us to take over his room. His new wife, Cheryl, came in just as we were starting and watched his presentation.
WOW what an experience! He had us laughing, engaged and crying. He taught us about how to follow the spirit and what is the first things we should learn. He talk about our call to learn - to learn what? the key principles of truth and then he explained what they were with scriptures and stories. He concluded with how to do it. It will be our first presentation on October 24th at 1pm and will be available to watch for two full weeks. I believe you are going to love this presentation.
Why did you change the name from LDS Homeschool Conference to Called to Learn?
The Conference name is being changed to Called to Learn conference because the LDS church has asked a few of our friends to change their name or to take out the "LDS" in their titles and a friend that works for the church educational system has told us that they strongly discourage using LDS in the title. Therefore, before we “get the call” we want to changed it to avoid logo and renaming in the future. The LDSHomeschoolConference.com website will still remain active and will direct people to this new web page.
We chose Called to Learn because it describes what we are about - we feel learning is a calling not just an option. Learning helps us better ourselves, our family and all our other brothers and sisters too. :)
This change has been good for two reasons, now we can open up to more LDS families, not just homeschoolers and two, we can bring in a variety of presenters.
Our focus is three fold:
