Women’s Encouragement Day: 7 Reasons To Attend

By January 3, 2022No Comments

If you need reasons to come to our Women’s Encouragement Day on Jan. 22 – just the word “encouragement” should be a motivator! – here’s a quick list of goodies for all attendees:

1. A welcome, safe place.

Moms, this is your day to be treated and pampered like no other! From the moment you enter to the moment you leave, we’ll have breakfast, lunch and afternoon refreshments waiting just for you.

Enjoy a delicious variety of foods and drink for all eaters, including those who are gluten-free and dairy-free. And yes, coffee for the early morning is an absolute must!

2. Guest speakers.

We’ve always noticed a delicate balance in selecting guest speakers for this event.

On one hand, we want a person with some perspective: a veteran homeschooler who has been able to see the fruits of her labor and speak truth with compassion to those following in her footsteps.

On the other hand, we also want someone who’s in the homeschool trenches day to day and understands our daily challenges. Sometimes it’s been difficult to find someone who matches both criteria.

This year, we’ve solved the dilemma beautifully – by inviting Kim Sorgius!

A 20+ year homeschool veteran, Kim is passionate about helping families grow in faith so they are NOT CONSUMED by life. Her practical sessions will inspire and equip you to parent without feeling overwhelmed by circumstances. For more information on Kim, visit her website.

3. Fellowship with other homeschool moms.

So often it’s easy for homeschool moms to feel alone and isolated, as though they’re the only people doing this. On those days, you need to remember your friends and fellow homeschoolers walking right there with you.

We’ve made fellowship time a priority this year. Although we start at 9:30 a.m., the doors open an hour early for you to enjoy refreshments, worship and catching up with old friends (and making new ones!) before the main event.

(For those joining us online, you can still enjoy fellowship from the safety and comfort of your own home!)

4. Lunch!

Yes, we’ll be having another fantastic lunch this year. Delicious catered dining, with gluten-free options for those interested. And yes, is that dessert waiting just around the corner…?

Better yet, no washing dishes afterward!

5. Hearing from local moms.

In the afternoon, you’ll hear from local homeschool mothers with a wide range of life experiences. Who knows – maybe one day you will be speaking up there!

6. Giveaways.

Make sure you enter all our contests and giveaways at the event, because we want to delight as many winners as possible! Special thanks to all the donors and advertisers who have a heart for the homeschool community.

Be sure to follow us on social media for all the details!

7. Limited space!

Numbers always fill up fast for this event, and we’re also following current guidelines for social distancing and safety for everyone who attends. Registration ends this Monday (Jan. 10).

Register today to book your seat!
