It's all Jesus! He is with us no matter what is thrown our way: tragedy, trauma, hardships. I love to share how we can be His disciples despite difficulties."
The Lord has given me a rich and varied testimony in which to bring Him glory. I have shared aspects of this testimony, based on the audience, at faith-based Christian retreats and conferences, youth events, to congregations as a guest speaker, to pastors' wives, and all over the world through my blog.
Some topics the Lord has blessed me to share, in a biblical, God-honoring and glorifying way, are the following:
> God's Presence, Power and Provision in Trauma
> Living a Life that Points People to Christ
> King Jesus: Conquering Fear, Building Faith
> Discipleship Despite Difficulties
> Losing parents to cancer
> Parenting special needs children (especially children/youth/young adults with autism)
> Domestic violence
> Second marriages
> Blended families
> Special Needs
> Teaching the Christian Faith to Children with Special Needs
> Homeschooling a Singleton
> Homeschooling a Student with Autism
> Building Schedules for Autistic Students
> Autism and Adult Children
> Homeschooling After Trauma

I would share the testimony God has given me, to bless you and to share what He has done. I speak at churches, homeschool conventions, conferences, faith-based organizations, youth groups, women's ministries, Christian retreats, or ministry staff retreats. I can create a Biblical, God-exalting, encouraging, and equipping talk just for your event.

Biblical and Practical Strategies to Handle Being Overwhelmed: Do you ever lie awake at night, worry-praying, and getting more overwhelmed with every news story, family situation, and the state of the nation? In this session, Terrie McKee, a healed overwhelmer, will give you biblical and practical strategies on how to combat feelings of being overwhelmed and what to do instead.
Preparing for the Unexpected: Terrie McKee has had her share of the unexpected: from dealing with her husband's paralysis from an attempted armed robbery, to her mother's sudden cancer diagnosis and death, to dealing with special needs adult children. In this session, she will show you how to prepare for the unexpected, from mind-mapping what you would do in various situations, to preparing your home and family in case of national or global unrest.T
Homeschooling One Child: It's a lot different to homeschool one child versus many children. In this session, Terrie McKee will give homeschoolers of one child tips and tricks, covering the joys and jungles of being the teacher, parent, and classmate to their child.
Homeschooling a Teen with Autism: Homeschooling a teen who has autism can be difficult: the meltdowns, the structure, puberty...in this session, homeschooling mom of four special needs children (including autism) Terrie McKee will unpack how she worked with her teen to teach him academics, social skills, and life skills (and navigate the changing world of puberty). She will encourage participants with tips she learned from her almost-30 years' experience of having a child with autism.
Hope for the Overwhelmed Homeschool Parent: Sometimes homeschool can be a bit much and overwhelm sets in. And this is not the kids - it's the parents! In this session, Terrie McKee will use humor and grace to encourage and inspire homeschooling parents who are teetering on the edge.
What's the Big Deal about Socialization? Ah, the "S" word. Socialization is often one of the road bumps in the homeschooling journey. In this session, participants will learn how to search for organizations, sports teams, and other activities for your child to encourage them to make friends. The importance of healthy friendships will also be discussed as well as things you can do as a parent to help your child succeed socially.
Homeschooling During Caregiving: Caregiving for a loved one who is ill or disabled can add a whole new element to homeschooling. In this session, homeschooler and author Terrie McKee will discuss how she homeschools while caregiving for her autistic son and paraplegic husband, including tips on caring for a terminally ill family member. She will also walk participants through how to take care of themselves during this season.
You CAN Homeschool Just One! No, you don't need a 15-passenger van to homeschool. You can, in fact, homeschool just one child. In this session, Terrie McKee of Homeschooling One Child will share tips and encouragement on homeschooling a singleton, including working on projects together, socialization, one-on-one academics, and enjoying the time together.
Planning a Homeschool Year for One Child: In this session, participants will learn how to use their own curriculum to plan the homeschool year for their child, incorporating field trips, chore days, sick days (for parent and child!). Terrie McKee of Homeschooling1Child.com will also teach parents how to back up and punt when things don't go according to plan.
Life Skills, Chickens, and More: In this session, Terrie McKee of Homeschooling1Child.com will dive into the importance of chores, pet responsibilities, encouraging entrepreneurship, and life skills as they relate to homeschool and life.
