Training for Triumph, a ministry and publishing company by Ray and Donna Reish, offer many services to the homeschooling community. TFT has been in operation formally for six years (though informally for many years prior to that). Check out the services we offer below!
Training for Triumph Cottage Classes
We offer cottage classes for homeschoolers grades two through twelve in up to three FW-area locations (and sometimes other locations as well, upon request). We offer complete language arts classes for all levels, writing classes for many levels, speech and debate, history, high school sciences, and more! Check out our offerings for the coming year at http://www.tfths.com/classes.php .
Training for Triumph Correspondence Classes
All of our Meaningful Composition books are available for use in our correspondence writing program. In this program, you choose the book (from our site--see samples) that you want your child to do, register for "correspondence," and we send the syllabus, class schedule, etc.--and each week for sixteen weeks your student mails his assignments to TFT teachers who in turn, grade everything and make audio cd's of their remarks and helps. Students grow in leaps and bounds in their writing with this approach! Check it out at http://www.tfths.com/corclass.php
Training for Triumph Speakers
We offer at least three (and oftentimes more) speakers on over fifty topics pertaining to homeschooling, parenting, teaching, marriage, and more. We can tailor make a workshop or seminar for your group or speak to living room groups in the area. Check out our many speaking topics at http://www.tfths.com/speaking.php
Training for Triumph Writing Workshops
We offer a general language arts workshop (The Almost Three R’s) as well as SAT preparation, creative writing, composition-only, and much more. Again, we can tailor a seminar or workshop to your group. http://www.tfths.com/speaking.php#law
We have a Christian parenting blog that has literally hundreds of posts on topics pertaining to the Christian family. If you have heard us speak and are interested in knowing more about a topic, check out the index at Positive Parenting: http://positiveparenting3-6-5.blogspot.com/ Or you may sign up there to receive PP in your email or LIKE us on FaceBook to receive it in your feed as it is posted.

Free Curriculum Samples!
We have a full one month sample of Character Quality Language Arts available for free at our site—including Lesson Plans and Answer Keys—of all four levels. This lets you “try before you buy” and also lets you see what level would be best for your student. Additionally, we have three weeks of each Meaningful Composition book at our site for free—and new ones are continually being added. Check out our samples at http://www.tfths.com/samples.php
Free Language Arts and Usage Tips!
Our blog, Language Lady 365, has a few tips each week in the areas of grammar, usage, writing, reading, speaking, homophones, spelling, and more! You may sign up to receive this service via email at http://languagelady365.blogspot.com/ OR LIKE LL 365 on FaceBook to receive notifications in your feed.
Christian Parenting Seminar
We offer a Christian parenting seminar, Character Training From the Heart, for between four and ten one hour sessions. (Note: This is a Christian parenting seminar and is not-homeschool-specific—so invite your non-homeschooling friends as well!). Host a seminar in your church, in a living room, for your Sunday school or small group, or homeschool group! We can do a Friday/Saturday or mid-week service—whatever works for your group. This unique seminar teaches parenting based on character training that comes from the hearts of parents—as opposed to simply outward control. We begin with character qualities that are appropriate for toddlers and preschoolers and work up to instilling “advanced” character qualities in teens and young adults. Check out a potential schedule and workshop descriptions at http://positiveparenting3-6-5.blogspot.com/search/label/seminars
