As I am writing this the weather has warmed up a bit, into the 50's, and the snow is melting. I can finally see my driveway. Soon I will be able to see the rocks on the front lawn that belong in the driveway! Even though most people at work have been saying they are glad to see the snow go, I am going to miss it. I have always liked the winter even as I am getting older now. It just takes a little longer to shovel the driveway early in the morning. Soon the crocus will be blooming, the trees will be budding, and winter will be over.
Throughout this winter we have been working hard on ENOCH's 24th Annual Convention. Check out our website for the workshop schedule and start planning whom you want to hear. There is an article in this month’s newsletter by Andrew Pudewa. In it he mentions another article that he suggests you read. Well, he will be speaking on that topic on Friday evening - Nurturing Competent Communicators. Read the article in the newsletter and then come out to hear him speak. Do not forget Diane Kummer will be giving five workshops on dealing with homeschooling through high school. Over the years we have had many homeschool parents ask, "Can I really homeschool through high school?" The answer is YES, you can. Come to the convention and hear Diane speak on this topic. Diane is HSLDA's High School Consultant. Liz Moore, a very popular speaker from South Jersey, will be speaking on lifestyle topics that will help you at home while homeschooling. We are offering something new to close out the workshops! We have a special speaker, G.K Mangelson, a Constitutional Scholar, who will be speaking on "Independence Forever! The 4 Steps to Save America".
Remember to sign-up your children for the Children’s Program when you register. Again, this year we will be having JandY Ministry giving the presentation. You can see the topics here in what they are offering this year. These look like some great sessions for your children. There are two sessions on Friday and four sessions on Saturday. Look on your Registration for price. Be sure to register early enough. Last year, we had to turn children away because it filled up so quickly.
Do not forget to check out our Exhibitor List and see who is coming to the convention. If you do not see your favorite exhibitor, give them a call or e-mail them. Let them know you would like to see them at the convention.
CALLING ALL HOMESCHOOL BUSINESSES, SMALL BUSINESSES, EVEN LARGE COMPANIES!!! Want to get you name out there to the homeschooling community? Why not donate goods or services to the Silent Auction? Last year we had some great items up for auction. Help us to get even more this year. The proceeds from the Silent Auction help to defray some of the cost for the convention, and donations to ENOCH of NJ are tax deductable, click here for further information. Be sure to check out the Silent Auction at the convention and bid on an item or two, maybe you will win!
Please continue to pray for the ENOCH Board and all the convention staff as the work behind the scenes continues for the convention.
