If you need reasons to come to our Women’s Encouragement Day on Feb. 3- just the word “encouragement” should be a motivator! – here’s a quick list of goodies for all attendees:
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 refreshments waiting just for you. And yes, our most popular refreshment for years past will again make its appearance in 2018 – CHOCOLATE!
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 Tracy Klicka!
Tracy homeschooled her seven children K-12. She is the widow of Christopher J. Klicka, an international homeschool pioneer and senior counsel for the Home School Legal Defense Association.
Today, Tracy is the full-time Director of Development for the Home School Foundation. She loves to help provide assistance to families homeschooling through hard times. She knows exactly what we’re going through!
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.
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. Grad panel.
Our popular panel featuring homeschool graduates is back this year. Come prepared to ask questions from successful homeschool alumni with a wide range of life experiences. Who knows – maybe one day your homeschooled student will be speaking up there!
Make sure you enter all our contests and giveaways at the event, because we want to surprise as many winners as possible! Special thanks to all the donors and advertisers who have a heart for the homeschool community.
There’s even talk of a special Instagram-only contest to be announced on the day. Be sure to follow @mpeinkc for all the details!
