Schedule, Workshops and Biographies (Updated June 1, 2024)

Keynote Speaker

Donna-Jean Breckenridge lives with her family in northern New Jersey. She considers herself blessed to be a founding member of the AmblesideOnline Advisory, the creators and sustainers of the AmblesideOnline curriculum. Donna-Jean was involved for many years in church ministry with her pastor-dad, she homeschooled her four children, and she now homeschools two of her five grandchildren. She is a frequent public speaker, whether to women at church groups, adoptive and foster parents, or homeschool audiences. She is also a writer (“Six Voices, One Story – The Heart of AmblesideOnline”, as well as the multi-volume series “This Country of Ours – Annotated, Edited, and Updated”) and an audiobook narrator – yet she considers her most important roles that of Mom, Mom-Mom, and friend. Her heart’s desire is to encourage others that God is safe to trust, no matter what. 

Note: Sonya Shafer was previously booked as our keynote speaker, but due to her recent health announcement she was unable to come. Please join with us in prayer for Sonya’s restored health.
