Check out this year's speakers...
Deedee Eldridge and her husband, Don, have been teaching at home, obeying the mandate from the Lord set forth in Deuteronomy 6, since their first child was born over 23 years ago. She has a passion for learning that has grown out of doing so right along with her children, and she seizes every opportunity to encourage others in the exciting journey of home education. Mrs. Eldridge has been a teacher of the Word for over twenty five years and has a zeal for the Lord and a love for His people, especially those in the home-educating community. She shares out of a desire to help every parent discover how to make learning fun and stress-free, emphasizing the balance between spiritual discipleship and academic training.
Mrs. Eldridge is in the process of writing 3 books - one tentatively titled “Hebrew Versus Greek Education; a Study in Thought and Contrast” which looks at the striking difference between the Biblical training of the heart and the secular teaching the mind - and adapting and writing her own original scripts. Deedee was a leader in SCOPE (scopehome.org
) for 12 years, and is now focusing more on expanding her local theatre company, which began nearly 11 years ago, teaching privately home-educated students the craft of theatre from a Biblical world view.
Deedee and Don, have four blessings and have just graduated #3 – all taught at home their entire lives. They reside in Folsom California, where they also pastor a local congregation.
