I am so excited to finally be heading to my first Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention of the year! It’s been a leap of faith with a lot of obstacles in the way, but every time an obstacle came up, we prayed through it and felt strongly we were supposed to keep going.
I’m going to be honest. Sometimes, I’m a quitter. I don’t really like adversity. I had to deal with this in faith, and that isn’t always the easiest thing for me to do.
It’s important to me that I bring a faith-filled message to the conference. I want to shine a light of faith and hope in Christ for homemakers and homeschool moms.
That’s right – the very thing that nearly held us back from going is the very thing I am speaking on.
For those of you interested, here’s the schedule for the Nashville convention. I speak at 9:30 am (Central time). I would appreciate prayers for the session, if any of you feel led to do so!
The convention is taking place at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. This place is amazing! The photo above is INSIDE the hotel! There is a boat ride (Ty and I are hoping to carve out some time for that), fun shops and restaurants (even one that spins!)
Going back to the Opryland Hotel is something of a sentimental journey for Ty and I. 5 years ago, shortly after Emmy’s death and while I was pregnant with Micah, Ty and I took a business trip to the Gaylord Opryland. It was a wonderful time, and we have very fond memories of our time there. We are so thankful to be going back!
If you’ll be in Nashville with us, be sure and find us! We’ll be the ones with the fuzzy-haired baby.
If you won’t be there, but would like to purchase the conference on CD or mp3, you can visit Resounding Voice and order online! And be sure to follow the conference Twitter feed via the #hsttd hashtag.
2 weeks from now, Teach Them Diligently will hold their final big convention of the year in Omaha (I’ll be there too!), so if you can possibly make, I’d highly encourage you to do so! (You can register here!) If not, I want to make sure you know about the Teach Them Diligently Marketplaces:
These events will be held in 9 locations this summer, so there’s a good chance there is one near you! A family pass is just $15 and you get some great deals on vendors as well as refreshment from various speakers! You also have the option of tacking on a Real Refreshment Retreat from Apologia!
So, if I get to see you this weekend, FANTASTIC! If not, maybe in Omaha? If not there, I might be able to swing one of the Marketplaces (which one should I choose?) No matter what, I would love to meet you and your family, so hopefully somewhere down the line, we’ll run into each other!
Have a blessed weekend!
