LDS-HEA 2001 Conference

June 8, 2001

Sandy, Utah

Theme: One Kingdom Rising, One Kingdom Falling

Keynote by Dr. Reed Benson: The Lord’s Library

Dr. Reed A. Benson | Rachel DeMille | Lorraine & Chelsea Goodrich | Tina & Ben Crowder | LuJean Livingston | Joyce Kinmont | Dr. John (Jack) Monnett | Joel Skousen | Info on the 2000 Conference

From the website: Principles to be taught at the conference:

The Lord’s library is foundational; it gives us a standard by which to measure all learning.

Parents must become great mentors; children and parents must take responsibility for lifetime learning.

The Lord’s yoke is easy, his burden light; if we’re overwhelmed we may be on the wrong path.

Each student has his own path.

We study from the best books, but we don’t have to read them all! It’s the process that feeds the soul.

We are teaching real children, not robots; we teach best when we emulate the Savior’s methods.

Satan seeks the destruction of the family; we have much to fear, but knowledge and faith conquer fear.

All Americans have citizenship duties; homeschoolers have a particular mission and opportunity to save the Constitution as it hangs by a thread, the future is bright and exciting.
