Join us for the newest edition of our Homeschool Conversations podcast as we get a behind the scenes peek of the 2021 Family Retreat with Bente Rodriguez, President of the Youth Conference. Bente shares what this year’s planning process has been like, along with some of the things she is most excited about for this upcoming retreat.
Bente Rodriguez is the mother of fifteen amazing children ages 24 to three. When she and her husband, Todd, first started their family, they never even thought about homeschooling; but as their oldest son was getting ready to enter kindergarten, they decided to give it a try (after all, how can you mess up a kindergartener?). A bit overwhelmed at first, they took it year by year, and before long, realized they were in for the long haul. After eighteen years of schooling her children (and at least fifteen more to go), she has three returned missionaries, one current missionary, four college kids (BYU-Provo & SVU) and ten still at home. She loves reading, working on home construction projects, being outside and most of all her family! She is also a lover of simplicity and learning!
