About The Firelight Foundation

The Firelight Foundation aims to provide conferences and events to educate, inform and inspire. We want to help provide skills and inspiration for home-school parents as they teach, nurture and watch their families grow at home. We hope they will be enabled to kindle the flame of learning and ignite a passion to know more…

Julie Bogart Speaking Tour 2019

Julie Bogart is the creator and owner of Brave Writer, an online writing and language arts programme. She has five kids and homeschooled them for seventeen years. Julie realised that what she enjoyed most was coaching writing and empowering parents to be writing coaches for their own kids. Brave Writer began in January 2000 and has since taught tens of thousands of families all around the globe. Today, Julie lives in Cincinnati, Ohio where she enjoys swimming, PG tips tea every morning, and traveling to visit her globe-trotting kids.

Past Firelight Foundation Conferences

“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for the huge organisational undertaking, time, effort and $$ input you gave to achieve this conference. After 13 years of homeschooling I’m about half way. This was exactly the injection of inspiration I needed to boost my energy, enthusiasm and passion to carry on the homeschooling path – aiming for excellence instead of plodding slowly onward. SO FANTASTIC to be able to listen to HIGH QUALITY international speaker. Great exposure to raise the quality of homeschooling in NZ.”
