mpe encouragement day highlights

We’re so thankful for every person who attended our 2019 Women’s Encouragement Day! What a beautiful privilege to serve all you spectacular homeschool moms.

We also appreciate those who filled out evaluation forms to let us know how we’re doing. These always come in handy when we’re planning for next year’s event and considering ways to improve.

Enjoy these Encouragement Day highlights and wrap-up of the event, taken from words by attendees –

Encouragement Day speakers

“So many truths spoken by our speakers. Here were some of my favorites. (I’ve summarized):

Isa 45:9 Does a clay pot argue with its maker? – The Lord is shaping our children- they belong to Him. Release them daily. – Dawn Pittman

With unconditional surrender there are no guarantees, but when we surrender to the Lord he promises to be with us wherever we go and to guide us in all truth. (Joshua 1:9; John 16:13) – Liz Mains

Surrendering is not the same as giving up. – and – our identity is in God before being a homeschool mom – Shawna Ketter

Our children were never ours to begin with. They belong to Him.- Rachelle Martin”

Theme of the day: Surrender

  • “This was my first year going and definitely won’t be my last. I had an amazing time! It was just what I needed, and the theme really resonated with me.”
  • “Thankful for the local moms that are sharing their hearts, and being very real, raw and transparent about the joys and struggles of their homeschool journey.”

First-time reflections

  • “My first time going, and I loved it! All the pretty details were so lovely. I can’t imagine all the hard work and time that went in to preparing for this…thanks to everyone who volunteered!”
  • “Last year was my first time, and it just brings tears to my eyes how loved encouraged and uplifted I felt, and connections I made having left that day.”


As always, we’re so grateful for your commitment to your family! As you go forward in this great task, may you feel the smile of the Father in every day. We’ve prayed for each one of you who attended.

Our continuing prayer is that you would be reminded anew that you are a chosen one, holy and dearly loved by your Father who created you and knows you!
