The School of Abraham presents the
Saints and Scholars 2001
Family Education Conference:
“Be not afraid, only believe.”
Welcome to our conference information page! We are glad you’re here. Please consider yourself our invited guest. The Saints and Scholars conference is open to everyone in the community, of any denomination.
As organizers of the conference, we extend a warm invitation to parents of all faiths, and hope that the commonality of our beliefs in strong families,moral values, and Christian principles will unite us in furthering our goal of a better education for our children.
And whatever the reason for your visit to our website, whether you are anon-homeschooling parent, and want to help your children succeed in school and in life, or if you are a veteran homeschooler looking for a fresh start, if you want to share what you’ve learned, or if you are a newhomeschooler searching for help and ways to implement your ideas, we’re here to help YOU, the parent–one of the most important folks in the entire universe–to succeed!
Together, we can do it!
Tomorrow is not too late, no matter what the world will tell you. So join with us today, because your children’s future is TOMORROW. You will want that tomorrow to be a good one.
Our conference fills a special slot that no other family education conference offers. The School of Abraham seeks to foster spiritual and moral development in an environment of academic rigor, with a commitment to the lifelong education of the parents as well as their children. Because of this special focus, we are selective about the vendors and speakers we invite to be represented at our conference. We hope you will consider seriously our invitation to participate with us this year.
“In the future, infrequent family scripture study may be inadequate to arm our children with the virtue necessary to withstand the moral decay of the environment in which they will live. Where in the world will the children learn chastity, integrity, honesty, and basic human decency if not at home?
“These values will, of course, be reinforced at church, but parental teaching is more constant. In my opinion, the teaching, rearing, and training of children requires more intelligence, intuitive understanding, humility, strength, wisdom, spirituality, perseverance, and hard work than any other challenge we might have in life. This is especially so when moral foundations of honor and decency are eroding around us. To have successful homes, values must be taught, and there must be rules, there must be standards, and there must be absolutes….”

Dear Dad and Mom,
Please consider attending this conference. Sometimes I feel so alone; I just want to know that there are others that feel and think the same way that I do. I know this conference will bring you in contact with some wonderful people who share the same values and priorities as we do. Maybe I’ll find a new friend or two. You’ve always told me how important it is to choose good friends, that our friends become part of our destiny.
Mom and Dad, when I looked at the classes I saw a lot that you would like, it’s all the kind of stuff you are always trying to help me understand. You ought to go.
I’ll be good, and I’ll even help watch my little sisters while you are away. I’ll miss you, but I know you’ll come back stronger and more able to teach me right from wrong. And that’s what it’s really all about, isn’t it?
Love, your son, Charles
