September 2014

Dear Friends,

     September is here again! As we begin a new school year, I was thinking what I should write about.  There is always "what happened over the summer" idea, which seemed to go extremely fast this year.  I finally finished Our Mutual Friend, by Charles Dickens, and I started a book that I read in high school. I don't remember that much about it. I do however remember the discussion in class, and it's funny the things you remember from over 35 years ago! I was going to write about the upcoming school year, but then something happened recently at work that had me thinking.
Someone I work with had a very close friend who died from complications from surgery and he left behind a wife and a one year old daughter.  We never know what may be coming our way.  Thinking about this situation I thought of the article David West wrote in last month's newsletter, "Success at What Price". As I reread it, one line stuck out to me - "Was the major focus on pursuing the knowledge of God's world, memorizing scriptures, and building a relationship with the God of this Book…"  I know that David was speaking about home educating our child, but this holds true for life's difficult places, whether it is a sickness, financial difficulties, or even the death of a loved one.  Helping our children build their relationship with God will not only give them a good foundation for education, but also for facing those difficult times in their lives. Right now everyone seems so focused on getting back into the routine of school, but let us not forget to keep God in the center of our home education!
As you wind down your summer and prepare for the school year, remember to place Christ in the center!

Now, for some ENOCH business:
We are looking for a few volunteers to fill some positions in the organization.
1.  A newsletter editor.  Toni DiGiovacchino, who has been our newsletter editor for many years, is stepping down.  Toni is willing to assist the person who will be filling this position.  We would like to thank Toni for all her years of service to ENOCH!
2.  Office Manager - forward emails that come into the office email to the proper board member, respond and forward voice mails and update ENOCH records. This job is year round.  A seasoned homeschooler would fit the bill. You need to be resourceful and informative.
3.  Social Media person - manages ENOCH's Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest and Google+.
4.  Silent Auction Coordinator for the convention.  This position starts in December and runs through the convention.

     If you are interested in any of these positions, please contact me a (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

WINNER!
Susan Grabowski is the winner of an MP3 set from our upcoming 2015 Convention.  Her name was drawn from all those who answered the 2014 Convention Survey.  Congratulations Susan!  Thank you to all who took the time to answer the survey.

Success at What Price

Do you ever take the time to re-evaluate why you do what you do?

If you do, do you find that the reasons are not the same as when you first began? This can relate to many long term tasks we may set our hands to do in our busy lives. The task starts out with strong convictions, based on Godly principles, and a need to enact positive change in your own life, lives of others, or the world at large.

Joshua 1:8 states "This book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it, for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success"!

Success? Academic Success? Vocational Success? Financial Success? What is the price one pays to achieve such successes? To keep this article short, I will reflect on decisions and tasks that lead us on a path to academic success. Maybe you have pursued academic success for yourself, or currently for your child/children. You may now reflect back on your first decision to homeschool your children.

Have the goals or methods you are using to help your child achieve this academic success change from when this journey first began? Did you originally pattern their success plan after Joshua 1:8? Was the major focus on pursuing the knowledge of God's world, memorizing scriptures, and building a relationship with the God of this Book which promises us success? As time moves on and your children get older, has the focus on the aforementioned formula for God's success for your children's life changed to just a pursuit of knowledge? Instead of God's Word being the center of your children's academic success, it may have been reduced to just another subject to cover in their education?

I applaud you if you have kept your focus through the years, in keeping God's Word at the center, of not only your life, but the plan for your children's academic success. But, for the rest of us that need help to stay on point, I would encourage you to take frequent evaluations of your personal relationship with God, and also the priority to have God and His Word at the absolute center of your children's lives and academic success plan. Based on ENOCH's Survey results, from this last ENOCH Conference in May of 2014, it seemed that a good percentage of attendees held the curriculum at more important than getting encouragement from workshops. Unfortunately, if we have been on the journey for a while, we think we go on it alone. Very dangerous!! Make purposeful plans to attend yearly events like the ENOCH Conference, that will not only help you to remember why you are doing what you do, but to instill vision on new and improved ways to assist you and your family in your pursuit of Godly Success in every part of your lives.

May God bless you and your family richly as you pursue His success!!

JUNE 2014

From the President’s Desk

Dear Friends,

This month I want to take some time out to honor a homeschool pioneer, Barbara Massa. Mrs. Massa went home to her reward on April 23. Her obituary read “Barbara Massa, 90, NJ home-schooling pioneer” and she truly was a pioneer. Mrs. Massa’s legal fight began the homeschool movement and paved the way for home schooling in New Jersey in 1962. When Mrs. Massa took her three older children out of school and decided to teach them at home, she had a high school education and relied completely on books from the library to teach them the “basic fundamentals.”

Of course, Pequannock officials, where she lived at the time, charged her and her husband “with violating New Jersey's compulsory education law”. Her case was in the courts for five years! “In State v. Massa, the court held that in educating a child at home, parents were required only to show that ‘the instruction was academically equivalent to that provided in the local public school.’ The case helped shape New Jersey policy on home schooling and is referenced on the Department of Education website.”

To add a feather in her cap, two of her children became attorneys and another became an actuary. What we enjoy in New Jersey is all thanks to Barbara Massa. Today, I want to personally commemorate her life by recognizing this hero.

I want to also thank all of you who attended the convention this year! You will be receiving a letter and survey within the week. Once you receive the survey, please fill it out and give us your opinion and honest answers. I want to encourage you to give us any ideas that can help ENOCH in the upcoming years. We will have a drawing once all the surveys are returned and the winner will receive free family admission to the 2015 convention!

Thank you all again!

Serving Him,

Rich Millward

May 16th and 17th 2014 is ENOCH's Annual Homeschool Convention!

Dear Friends,

We are now into the home stretch of preparations for the convention!  Come out and help make it the best convention ever.  Pre-Registration ends May 5th!  You can click here to start your on-line registration.

Remember to sign your children up for the Children’s Program when you register.  Again, this year we will be having JandY Ministry giving the presentation. Their 2014 program is “Digging for God’s Truth”. The ages for the Children’s Program are 5-12 years old! You can see the complete list of places and people that your child will be searching for and the times of each session by clicking here.  Look for pricing when you register. We have tried to keep pricing affordable, but prices do go up when you register at the door.

Check out our website for the workshop schedule and start planning whom you want to hear.  Come hear our Main Speakers - Andrew Pudewa, Diane Kummer and Liz Moore and on Saturday afternoon come here G. K. Mangelson, a Constitutional Scholar, speak on Independence Forever!  The 4 Steps to Save America. We’re thrilled to have so many great speakers with us this year!

We also would love to have you volunteer! We have over 100 volunteer slots to fill during the convention.  Volunteer for a three hour shift and choose either Early-Bird Shopping in Used Curriculum on Friday or ENOCH Bucks, which can be use like cash at most exhibitors and for workshop CDs at ENOCH Recordings!  If you have already registered and would like to volunteer, please contact Gladys Harris, our Volunteer Coordinator, at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Don’t forget about our free iPad Mini give-away at the convention!  When you attend the convention, each family will receive a card with vendors who have sponsored the give-away.  Visit each of the vendors and listen to their presentation and they will punch your card. When you have visited all the participating vendors and turn in your card at the ENOCH booth, you will be entered into the drawing for our iPad Mini!

When you come to the convention, don’t forget to bring your Boxtops for Education and drop them off at the ENOCH Booth.  In addition, you can sign-up to get a year’s subscription to Answers in Genesis Magazine, four issues for $24.  The moneys received from both of these programs help defray some on the costs of running ENOCH throughout the year.  

As always, please continue to pray for the ENOCH Board and all the convention staff as the work behind-the-scenes speeds up for the convention!

In His Service,
Rich Millward

for ENOCH's Annual Homeschool Convention!

Dear Friends,

ENOCH's 24th Annual Convention is only a month and a half away!  Check out our website for the workshop schedule and start planning whom you want to hear.  Come hear our Main Speakers Andrew Pudewa, Diane Kummer and Liz Moore.  Do not forget Diane Kummer will be giving five workshops on dealing with homeschooling through high school.  If you think you cannot homeschool through those high school years, come and find out that YOU CAN!

Early-Bird Pre-Registration has now ended, but you can still register, the prices are higher now, click here  to get to the registration page.  Parents of Pre-Schoolers and Newbies are $20 for Regular Registration.  Any person you know that is interested in homeschooling who has never been to our convention or shows an interest in homeschooling should be invited for the special pricing.  Why pre-register when the price is the same at the door?  Pre-Registering helps ENOCH to plan for a number of things, one of which is how many programs to print.  Do not forget to volunteer. We have over 100 volunteer slots to fill during the convention.  Volunteer for a three hour shift and choose either Early-Bird Shopping in Used Curriculum on Friday or ENOCH Bucks, which can be use like cash at most exhibitors and for workshop CDs at ENOCH Recordings.  Teens can volunteer for a whole day, come to the convention and have their registration refunded.  We especially need teens on Friday to help in Used Curriculum.  Get involved! Help make YOUR convention a success!  Yes, YOUR convention. ENOCH puts on the convention for you!

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. Their program for this year is “Digging for God’s Truth”. The ages for the Children’s Program are 5-12 years old! Your children will be discovering God’s truths by examining Biblical, Archaeological and Historical evidence.  Have them dig for Eden, Ninevah, Bethlehem and other places in the Bible.  You can see the complete list of places and people that your child will be searching for by clicking here.  These look like some great sessions for your children.  There are two sessions on Friday and four sessions on Saturday.  Look for pricing when you register. We have tried to keep pricing affordable, but prices do go up if you register at the door.  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.  We want to urge our attendees to support the vendors that attend. If you do not see your favorite exhibitor, give them a call or e-mail them. 

We are offering a free iPad Mini Give-away at the convention!  When you attend the convention, each family will receive a card with vendors who have sponsored the give-away.  Visit each of the vendors and listen to their presentation and they will punch your card. When you have visited all the participating vendors you card will be entered into the drawing for an iPad Mini.

CALLING ALL HOMESCHOOL BUSINESSES, SMALL BUSINESSES, EVEN LARGE COMPANIES!!! Do you want to get you name out there to the homeschooling community?  Why not donate goods or services to the Silent Auction?  The proceeds from the Silent Auction help to defray some of the cost for the convention, and donations to ENOCH of NJ are tax deductible, 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!  The donation deadline is April 30th!

Please continue to pray for the ENOCH Board and all the convention staff as the work behind the scenes continues for the convention.

Register now - May 16th and 17th 2014
for ENOCH's Annual Homeschool Convention!

Dear Friends,

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".

Registration is open, click here to get to the registration page.  Again, this year Parents of Pre-Schoolers and Newbie are $10 for Early Bird Registration. Any person you know that is interested in homeschooling who has never been to our convention or shows an interest in homeschooling should be invited for the special pricing.  Just as a reminder Early Bird Pre-Registration ends March 31st, so do not forget to register before then, prices go up April 1st! We will be sending out a reminder to everyone of the cutoff date as it approaches!  Do not forget to volunteer for the convention, we have over 100 volunteer slots to fill during the convention.  Volunteer for a three hour shift and choose either Early-Bird Shopping in Used Curriculum on Friday or ENOCH Bucks, which can be use like cash at most exhibitors and for workshop CDs at ENOCH Recordings.  ENOCH is also looking for an Assistant Exhibitor Coordinator to assist at the convention.  If you are interested in that position, please contact Michele Gross at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

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.

SAVE THE DATES- May 16th and 17th 2014
for ENOCH's Annual Homeschool Convention!

Dear Homeschool Friends,

It’s that time of year again! It is time to register for our 24th Annual Homeschool Convention, which will be held on May 16th & 17th in Edison, New Jersey! Here is the link to register with all the information you will need.

We have some remarkable main speakers lined-up - Andrew Pudewa from the Institute of Excellence in Writing (IEW), Dianne Kummer, a High School Consultant from HSLDA, and Liz Moore from Living by Nutrition.  We are also thrilled to have with us again this year JandY Ministry who will be doing our Children's Program. We have two sessions on Friday and four sessions on Saturday, with special pricing! Last year multiple sessions sold out, so register as early as you can!

Another returning feature of our convention is our Silent Auction!  There were many excellent items on auction last year and this year is shaping up to be even more terrific!  If you know of a business, large or small, that would like to get their "name" out there to the homeschooling community, please have them contact Sherry Lynne Pierro, our Silent Auction Coordinator, at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  The silent auction is a great way for them to get their product or service out there, but we also have two other options. If they are interested in advertizing in our programs or our bagging, they can go to ENOCH's Exhibitor Website, (click here), and see all the details!

Don't forget about the fantastic Used Curriculum Sale at the convention! If you are now getting into those high school years and you don't need that 5th grade math book anymore, sell it and bless another homeschooler! Check out our website for all the details on what you need to do to sell those gently used curriculum.

We like to put in articles that our main speakers have written, but we have included here a link to HSLDA's Homeschool Heartbeat where you can listen to five recent broadcasts with Michael Smith and Diane Kummer discussing how to prepare for the SAT and the ACT.  Diane is a great resource for homeschooling through those challenging, yet rewarding high school years. Come out to the convention and hear her wonderful words of encouragement and support in her sessions. You will also have a chance to speak with her at the HSLDA booth.

There it is! ENOCH is quite busy with the convention getting closer. Please be in prayer for everyone, including the Board, their families, and our staff coordinators who work behind the scenes before the convention.

Serving Him,

Rich Millward

SAVE THE DATES- May 16th and 17th 2014
for ENOCH's Annual Homeschool Convention!

"Another year is dawning,” is a hymn we sing during our Watch Night Service, New Year's Eve, at church. This was originally written as a poem by the author, Frances Ridley Havergal, to friends in January 1874 as a New Year's greeting.  It is a now a beautiful hymn of consecration for the New Year. It is part of the first line – "Another Year is dawning; dear Father, let it be..." – that was the thought for this month’s article.

Another year is dawning at midnight - whether you are in church or watching the ball drop in Times Square or asleep - another year will begin. What will it hold? Great joy? Encouragement? Trials? Disappointments?  What about those “aha” moments when your teen finally gets the algebra concept? Maybe your third grader finds the joys of reading. Maybe it is a few tears shed as your last child finishes homeschooling. Or it is a sickness or the death of a loved one? Who knows?  Whatever it brings, we know Him who holds tomorrow. "Dear Father, let it be...” as the song goes, another year of working, waiting, progress, praise, mercies, faithfulness, leaning on Him, service. As we go through 2014, let us look to the Father above, for His grace and mercy when we fail, His encouragement when we struggle and His love toward us all the time.  As this New Year begins, let us encourage one another, pray for one another and not just at the beginning, but the whole year through.  The Board of ENOCH greatly appreciates your prayers this coming and your words of encouragement. It helps us to get through those difficult times.

Here is a suggestion - why not have one of your children write a paper on Frances Ridley Havergal? She wrote hundreds of poems and hymns, she was an accomplished pianist and vocalist, proficient in seven languages, and possessed a keen mind (memorized the entire New Testament, Psalms, Isaiah, and the Minor Prophets). You may be surprised by what they learn.

Some announcements for 2014 - we are pleased to announce another one of our main speakers for the 2014convention - Diane Kummer, from HSLDA.  Diane is one of HSLDA's High School Consultants and will be speaking on a variety of topics dealing with homeschooling during those high school years.  ENOCH is contacted throughout the year on questions about homeschooling through high school. Many parents are not sure what to do, how to have proper recordkeeping, even a transcript can be an issue. Diane is a wealth of information and encouragement when you think - "Can I homeschool all the way through high school?" The answer is “Yes, you can!”  Come to the convention and hear Diane share her own experience as she homeschooled her two children through high school.

Andrew Pudewa, from the Institute of Excellence in Writing (IEW), is one of our other main speakers.  JandY Ministry will again be doing the Children's Program at this year's convention.  Sign-up early as their sessions filled up quickly and last year we had to turn people away.  Speaking of sign-in up early - Early Bird Registration for ENOCH's 2014 Convention opens February 1st!

Happy New Year!

Looking forward to a great year,
Rich Millward,
President - ENOCH of NJ

Let Every Day Be Christmas
by Norman Wesley Brooks

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.

Remember too the Christ-child, grew up to be a man;
to hide him in a cradle, is not our dear Lord's plan.
So keep the Christmas spirit, share it with others far and near,
from week to week and month to month, throughout the entire year!

 

The Board of Officers of ENOCH of NJ wishes you and your family a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

In His Service,
Richard Millward

Thanks to God for my Redeemer,
Thanks for all Thou dost provide!
Thanks for times now but a memory,
Thanks for Jesus by my side!
Thanks for pleasant, balmy springtime,
Thanks for dark and stormy fall!
Thanks for tears by now forgotten,
Thanks for peace within my soul!

Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered,
Thanks for what Thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered,
Thanks for all Thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure,
Thanks for comfort in despair!
Thanks for grace that none can measure,
Thanks for love beyond compare!

Thanks for roses by the wayside,
Thanks for thorns their stems contain!
Thanks for home and thanks for fireside,
Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,
Thanks for heav’nly peace with Thee!
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow,
Thanks through all eternity!

Dear Friends,

This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving hymns, written by August Storm in 1891. Carl E. Backstrom translated it from Swedish into English in 1931.  As we enter this month of Thanksgiving, let us be thankful for all that the Lord provides by His hand of mercy.  Let us also continue to remember in prayer all those in our state who are still suffering from the devastation from Superstorm Sandy.  Just this week a family in our church had their house torn down. In addition, as I drive to work in Union Beach, there are still so many damaged homes and empty lots.  My heart really goes out to these people, let us remember them in prayer and do something if you can.

Just a few reminders: (1) ENOCH has recently begun package BoxTops for Education.  Please mail in your boxtops to ENOCH of NJ, P.O. Box 308, Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716.  (2) We are looking for an Assistant Exhibitor Coordinator for the convention.  If you are interested, please e-mail Michele Gross at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  Finally, ENOCH now has a group page on Facebook, you can find us at ENOCH of NJ.

"Thanks for hope in the tomorrow, Thanks through all eternity!"

Happy Thanksgiving,

Dear Friends,

School has begun! For many of you, it is just the beginning of your journey.  For others, you are almost done. Then there are those who have finished homeschooling and you are settling into a quieter schedule.

For those of you who have reached the latter part of your life, I have some thoughts to share with you. How do you think you did as homeschool parents looking at your graduates now?  Do you think you did a good job?  How do you know?  As I write this, I am in Maryland at the National Leadership Conference.  A discussion arose about the generation of homeschoolers; those who have graduated, the “Millennium Generation,” and of how they have done.  Studies were conducted, a few years back, revealing how the first generation succeeded academically and socio-economically. But what about other areas? Where are those children today? What is their spiritual condition?  What really influenced their lives, educationally, culturally and spiritually?

Are you curious? We are too! There is a new survey being done, to find out what happened to those children who were raised in Christian homes and educated in the 80’s and 90’s.  Generations with Vision has teamed up with Dr. Brian Ray, of NHERI, (National Home Education Research Institute), and created the “Gen2Survey”.  If you know of a young person between 18-38, whether they are Christian, Non-Christian, Public Schooled, Private Schooled or Home Schooled have them fill out this survey.  Just click on Gen2Survey to fill it out.  It will take about 10-20 minutes to complete and each participant is entered into a contest to win one of three I-PAD Minis! Down the line in the near future, the survey will be compiled and we will see how homeschoolers compare to public and private school. I am looking forward to hearing more.

You’re not going to believe me but Convention time is upon us! The Board has been working on things already for the 2014 Convention. The theme this upcoming year is “Anchored in Christ” and it will be here before you know it! Write it down, save the date – May 16-17, 2014. We can announce one of our main speakers: Andrew Pudewa. We are very excited to have him back.  

Last year, the Board was overwhelmed with many aspects of the convention.  There is much, much help still needed for prep time, during the event, and afterwards. Every area of the convention is being reviewed. If you have an area of expertise that can share with us, we would love to hear from you. Our departments are as follows: Registration, Used Curriculum, Hospitality, Children’s Program, Silent Auction, Volunteer, Exhibitors, etc. We need folks to come alongside and help us with the day-to-day planning as well as at the convention. Michele Gross, our Exhibitor Coordinator, is looking for an Assistant Exhibitor Coordinator to assist during the convention. If you are interested, please contact Michele Gross at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Looking forward to hearing from you all.

God Bless,
Rich Millward

Friends,

So how did you do with last month’s "assignment"?  Don't remember what it was?  I challenged each family to think about how they could help a neighbor or shut-in in some way.  There is still time to send in what your family did and we may include some in October's newsletter. If you did not get a chance to do anything why not do it this month.

School has "started!” Your kids are trying out that new curriculum you picked up at last May's convention and they are really enjoying it. So far so good! The 2014 convention is only eight months away and ENOCH would like to announce one of our speakers - Andrew Pudewa from Institute for Excellence in Writing.  We are excited to have him as a speaker again!!!

Preparations have begun for next year’s convention. If you enjoy this event and would like to get more involved, we are always looking for volunteers to help with the behind-the-scenes operations that occur throughout the year.  We are well into the planning stages: signing our main speakers, inventorying our supplies, etc.  So if you want to get more involved, send me an email at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

We have two fundraisers happening right now. One is BoxTops for Education.  If your support group participates in BoxTops for Education we want you to continue to support them, but if they do not why not support ENOCH?  You can send them to ENOCH of NJ, P.O. Box 308, Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716.

The other fundraiser is Boscov's "Friends Helping Friends."  ENOCH is selling special "25% Off Shopping Passes" to be used on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 for $5.00 each. All proceeds from the sold passes benefits ENOCH.  Here is an easy way to support us and save money shopping at Boscov's Department Store.  On that day, there will be free refreshments and multiple chances to win prizes at each location!  Boscov's has eight locations in New Jersey, (Atlantic City, Depford, Eatontown, Moorestown, Toms River, Vineland, Voorhees and Woodbridge) and for those in Hunterdon and Warren Counties there is one in Easton, Pa.  If you would like to purchase a pass, send a check for $5.00 for each pass along with your name and address to ENOCH of NJ, P.O. Box 308, Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716 by October 1st.  This is a great co-op or support group event! Ladies, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to spend time with other homeschool moms while going on a shopping spree!

Have a great start to the new school year!

In His Service,
Rich Millward
President

SAVE THE DATES- May 16th and 17th 2014
for ENOCH's Annual Homeschool Convention!

Speakers and more details to follow in the coming months.

 

Dear Friends,

How is your summer going? I know that our summer is going fast. Before you know it, September will be rolling around, with cooler weather, and the beginning of the school year. I know as homeschoolers we do not hold to the Thursday before Labor Day or the Tuesday after Labor Day, the official start of the public school year. Those days are long gone, more years than I really care to remember. However, it is just around the corner, especially for those of us who "start" school in August. For homeschoolers, and I know they do not want to admit it, but public school parents as well, we are always teaching our children, so there is no real start or end of school.

Are you ready for school? No? Do you have everything laid out already, all the way through May or June? On the other hand, do you take the more eclectic approach? No matter how far you have planned or whatever your teaching style is, do not forget to enjoy the rest of the summer. Whether it is traveling around the country or in your own backyard, take time to smell the roses or the pine trees or the ocean air. Take advantage of the great natural or historic places of New Jersey, from High Point to Cape May, from the mountains to the seashore. Speaking of the seashore, I will miss that this year, being able to watch the sunset over Barnegat Bay, smelling the salty air from the front porch of my parent's summer home. The repairs to the house from Superstorm Sandy will not be complete until after the season has ended. It is hard to believe that it is nine months since the storm hit. Let us continue to pray for all those who are still suffering because of the storm. From the devastated towns like Mantoloking or Ortley Beach along the ocean to the towns like Union Beach and Keansburg in the Bayshore Area of Central Jersey.

During the nine months, ENOCH was able to assist homeschool families that were devastated from the storm with books donated to us. How about you? Why not spend a day or more helping people who maybe struggling. Not everyone can help the victims of Superstorm Sandy, but maybe your family can help that neighbor who cannot do the yard work anymore or that shut-in who maybe would like a book read to them. Pray about it and see what the Lord would have you do. Be creative! We as homeschoolers know how to do that best: being creative. Drop me an email and tell me what your family thinks up and does and maybe we will put a few in the next newsletter.

Enjoy what is left of the summer,

In His Service,
Rich Millward
President

Friends,

We are still recovering from the convention so I do not have much to say except THANK YOU!!! We are grateful to everyone who attended as well as all the encouraging words we received during the convention. It is a great reminder to us at ENOCH that we are here to serve you.

The Board will be meeting in the end of June to discuss plans for next year's convention. We will have an announcement on the time, place and date by August!

Thank you again for all your support!

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Randy Miller of Miller Pads and Paper. Please read the following announcement. Please pray for the family during their time of loss.

Richard Millward
President

Randy Miller of Miller Pads and Paper passed away suddenly Wednesday, May 22, while setting up for Florida’s FPEA homeschool convention.

Randy and Renee Miller are gracious, kind people. Their friendship has blessed so many around the country. Never seeking their own, but always looking to serve and love, Randy and Renee dedicated their lives to providing affordable resources for Christian families. Their dedication to the homeschool community is worthy of admiration.

Randy was a “big bear” kind of man, a gentle soul who was always providing a smile and hope to those he encountered. A hardworking man, he is remembered for diving into a lake to collect golf balls and turning them in for money to provide for his family. His grandchildren called him “Papa” and loved climbing on his big shoulders. Family and friends will miss his hugs and his deep mellow voice. The homeschool community will miss his presence and his care.

Miller Pads and Paper is a family-based business located in southwest Wisconsin. The Miller family has served the homeschool community for over twenty years, providing paper products and art supplies. Randy is survived by his loving wife Renee, four children, and five grandchildren.

Most of all, HEDUA and all vendors in the homeschool community ask that you keep the Miller family in your prayers as they grieve the loss of a husband, father, and grandfather.

APRIL 2013

From the President’s Desk

Desk

 

Dear Friends,

There is a woman at work who I have been talking to about homeschooling, (her son is three) and she is so excited about going to the convention!  The other day she asked me which speakers she should go listen to.  I told her that I would go over the workshops with her.  That is what the convention is all about, a potential homeschooler getting excited about looking at curriculum, listening to speakers, and meeting other homeschoolers.  That is why it is so important for you veteran homeschoolers to come: to encourage those new homeschoolers. But, sadly, that could end this year.

Yes, it is true; we are looking at having to cancel next year's convention.  We already have some great speakers lined up, but that may not make a difference.  Financially, ENOCH is struggling. We are trying to get other sources of income up and running, but more importantly if our attendance numbers do not improve this year, the vendors will not come back.  Vendors have to make a choice about which conventions they can go to.  This year we had several vendors say that they could not come to our convention because there are three big conventions the same weekend as ENOCH’s.  Since ENOCH’s Convention is considered small they go other places.  We have looked at possibly moving the convention to a different weekend, but that has not been possible.   I heard from someone that people are thinking about registering for the convention but not coming to the convention, just so ENOCH can get the income, that is a nice gesture, but without people actually attending the convention it only solves part of the problem.  If we don't have actual people show up and look at curriculum, fill up the sessions, buy from the exhibitors, the vendors have no choice but to not come back.
If the ENOCH Convention is gone, there will be no local convention for you to attend; you will have to drive to Pennsylvania, upstate New York, or Massachusetts.  As great as those conventions are, and we are friends with all of those state homeschooling boards, they do not know the New Jersey regulations for homeschooling; they cannot point you to a local support group; you will not see those friends you only meet at the convention each year.  And without the convention, ENOCH cannot survive financially and we will not be there for you to help find that local support group, help that new homeschooler with what they need to do to begin homeschooling, and you will lose a voice in Trenton when homeschool legislation bills are introduced.

To encourage you to come to the convention we have extended the Early-Bird Registration until April 20th, so whether you register on-line or by mail you have until April 20th before the prices go up.  Click here to register.

I think this will be the 16th or 17th convention my wife and I have attended and I still get excited about coming, even though I work the whole time now.  I enjoy listening to the speakers, talking with the vendors, whom many I have become friends with over the years, and speaking with homeschoolers from throughout NJ and from neighboring states.  It was at an ENOCH Convention back in 1997 that after hearing Ken Ham speak on Friday evening we decided there was no other option, but to homeschool our daughter.  Please give future homeschooling parents of New Jersey that same opportunity that you have enjoyed over the years!

I ask that you pray about coming to the convention.  I know some of you are saying, but I have all the curriculum I need, maybe there will be something at the convention that you will see that would help your son or daughter.  Sit on a few of the workshop and get encouraged, encourage a discouraged homeschool mom.  Volunteer, we need many volunteers for the convention to run smoothly.  Also, pray for the convention staff, those who volunteer for the whole two days so that you can be blessed.  And pray for the ENOCH Board as we need to make some decisions in the near future concerning the organization.

Here are some of the things that I mentioned earlier that ENOCH is doing to help increase our income:

First, Processing with a Purpose - If you own a business or know someone who owns a business and accepts credit cards you can help support ENOCH.  Simply process your credit cards under this program and Cornerstone Payment Systems will make a donation to ENOCH for as long as you participate.  For more information click on the following link http://cornerstone.cc/enochofnj/

Second, Box Tops for Education - Collect them yourself, ask your non-homeschooling friends, church members, etc. to save them for you to benefit ENOCH.   If you are already saving them for your support group please continue to support them. We will have a container at the convention for you to drop off your box tops or you can send them to our P.O. Box - ENOCH of NJ, P.O. Box 308, Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716-0308.

Third, Silent Auction - This year at the convention we will be holding a Silent Auction.  Some of the organizations that have donated items for you to bid on so far are BJU, IEW, Apologia Press and, Sight and Sound Theater.  Check out all the items that you will be able to bid on at the convention website.
Thank you all for your payers for ENOCH and those that serve the organization.

In His Service,
Rich Millward

Silent Auction

March 2013 Newsletter

ENOCH of New Jersey e-Newsletter

MARCH 2013

From the President’s Desk

Desk

Dear Friends,

ENOCH has been quite busy during the past month. Not only in planning the convention details and filling gaps of staff coordinators but in other areas that can help ENOCH and you. So let me begin with some of the things we have accomplished.

  1. We are excited to announce that we will be holding a Silent Auction during the convention. We will be having items on display that you can see and bid on. We hope to have a list of the items on the website as they become available. We will let you know more details as they are available.
  2. We finally were able to finalize our hotel for the convention for our attendees and vendors. Here is the information for your reference. Please note the special pricing is only good until May 2, 2013.

    The Comfort Inn
    831 Route 1 South, Edison, NJ 08817
    (732) 287-0171
    4 miles from Expo Center
    Continental breakfast and high-speed Internet access
    *Ask for special rate using “ENOCH” at $70.00 prior to May 2, 2013!

  3. ENOCH is now participating in the Box Top for Education program. If you are part of a support group that participates in the program, please continue to do so. If not, then send them our way! We will have a box available at the ENOCH booth to collect the box tops. You can mail them directly to us: PO Box 308, Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716.

We thank God for His help, wisdom and guidance. He is faithful. We cannot tell you what a huge responsibility it is to run a statewide organization. There are times when it takes a toll on our family and then God encourages us to press on.

Now it is time to share the needs of ENOCH. Every year, our core staff of coordinators and assistant staff members changes due to circumstances beyond their control. This year is no different. We need an Assistant Hospitality Coordinator. You would work on and off during the convention. We also need an Assistant Volunteer Coordinator to help work the Volunteer booth.

ENOCH of New Jersey e-Newsletter

FEBRUARY 2013

From the President’s Desk

Desk

Dear Friends,

"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" 1 Thessalonians 5:18.

First, I would like to thank all the families that generously donated homeschool curriculum to ENOCH to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. ENOCH was able to help several families in the area. It is such a blessing to be a blessing!

Second, we are very excited this year to have Zan Tyler and Steven Demme as our Keynote Speakers at ENOCH’s 23rd Annual Convention. Zan is a speaker and author from Apologia Press and Steve is a speaker and author from Math U See. Our featured speaker, David Watkins, a homeschooling Pastor and Chairman of MACHE, Minnesota Association of Christian Home Educators, and a Board member of NACHEL, National Alliance of Christian Home Education Leadership. All of our speakers are known for their encouraging words and outstanding insight for families. Our theme this year is “Joy in the Journey." Whether you are new to homeschooling or a veteran, each of us need to be reminded that this is a journey we are all called to. Even in discouraging times, God wants to give us joy. We encourage you to get to the workshops this year!

If you know of someone who is thinking about homeschooling invite them to come to the convention. There is special pricing for parents of preschoolers and for those who are new to homeschooling and have never been to our convention. Also, there is a special sponsorship so that you can sponsor a family that was affected by Hurricane Sandy. Just follow the information on the registration page under donations.

You will notice that not everything is up and running yet, but we will continue to update the information as it is made available to us. Be sure to check our website!

Finally, please remember to pray, not only for the Board, but for the department coordinators and assistants working with us. We are in need this year of some key positions. If you would like to serve homeschoolers, or your teen can help us, we would GREATLY appreciate it. You can contact me directly at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). We could NEVER do this alone! Thank you in advance to all who will be working on the convention plans in the days ahead.

"Without counsel, plans go awry, But in the multitude of counselors they are established" Proverbs 15:22.

In His service,
Rich Millward
President

From the President’s Desk

Desk

Dear Friends,

“And I told them of the hand of my God which had been good upon me,
and also of the king’s words that he had spoken to me. So they said,
“Let us rise up and build.” Then they set their hands to this good work.
 – Nehemiah 2:18

As I drive around the town I live in, I noticed our favorite sub shop being rebuilt. It was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy.  The owners tore down what was left and now the new foundation is going in.  Some days when I drive to work, I take the back roads that wind through Union Beach, one of the hardest hit towns in our area. I drive by the Police Station and there are stacks and stacks of plywood and sheetrock waiting to be taken to a home that is being reconstructed.  With all the building going on, I have been thinking, why not with the New Year approaching we build each other up and encourage one another?  Just as the areas along the coast are being rebuilt, let us build up those we know are discouraged, those who do not know where to turn or, perhaps, those who have given up.  Maybe Sandy affected them, maybe there is an illness in the family that is taking a toll, and maybe they are struggling with homeschooling.  Come along side of them, pray with them, and encourage them in the Lord.  See if you can make a difference in someone’s life this year.  When December rolls around again, hopefully we all can look back and say wow, the Lord used me to bless that person’s life or that family.  Think of how much better our own little part of the world could be because of what the Lord was able to do through His willing servants!  Try it! Pray and ask God where He could use you to encourage someone each day.  No matter how small you may think it is, it may be just what that person needs to hear that day. Go out today and be a blessing!

Here is one way you can encourage one another:
Attendee registration for this year’s convention opens the middle of January. Please watch for updates on Facebook, Twitter and our website.  If you would like to make a donation to help a family who has been affected by Hurricane Sandy, just mark the donation box with the dollar amount. 

If you would like to sponsor a specific family that you know has been affected by the storm, the process will be as follows:

If you are a family who was affected by the hurricane and would like to come to the convention, please do not hesitate to contact the Convention Registrars, David and Jackie West at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

If your family, or if you know of a family, that lost their homeschool curriculum during Hurricane Sandy ENOCH has received donated curriculum that is available.  Please contact me at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

God bless you all this New Year! Expect God for 2013 be a wonderful year for all.

In His service,
Rich Millward

ENOCH of New Jersey e-Newsletter

DECEMBER 2012

From the President’s Desk

Desk

Dear Friends,

On October 28th, Hurricane Sandy hit us with a vengeance and devastated our shores and local communities. We watched as many of you did, the destruction on TV, newspapers and Facebook.  After people got power, we all started to put the pieces back together. Many could not. They lost everything. Throughout the state, people developed a motto, "NJ is strong". And it is true. Many came to help clean up our state, especially our shore areas. When you go through a situation of this magnitude, you see people come together. They are resilient. They are strong. I was reminded of those words in the Bible, "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might." As Christians, we can live by that. We can do nothing without Christ. He is our strength in troubled times. He never leaves us alone He gives us the determination to rebuild and move forward.

ENOCH was contacted by Tracy Klicka, who is the Chairperson for Homeschool Foundation. She not only offered her prayers for NJ but also said that the Homeschool Foundation is ready to assist families who lost their curriculum and who may have other homeschool needs. The Homeschool Foundation can be contacted by phone at 540-338-8688 or by going to their website at www.homeschoolfoundation.org.

We also received a call from a speaker who offered to get the word out to publishers to help get new curriculum to families in need from the hurricane. ENOCH is also asking for your help. If you have curriculum that you would like to donate to help families, you can ship it to ENOCH of NJ, c/o 15 Manchester Ave., Keyport, NJ 07735 or you can drop it off at that same address, but let us know so we can make sure someone is home. If you do send curriculum, please label it with the grade level and subject. This would help us out greatly. If you know of a family that has homeschool needs, please contact me via email at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). We will endeavor to get their needs met. We would love to help where we can.

With the convention plans going on, we want to help in another way. Last year we gave out a record amount of scholarships for the convention. We want to offer that again. Registration will be opening in January and there is a spot for folks who register to donate for the scholarship fund. This will be used to help any and all who have been effected by the hurricane and the economic downturn. If you want to help with this, make sure to mark the scholarship fund and donate whatever you can. It goes a long way.

Now to those of you who have suffered great loss, I wish I could be there to encourage you and give you a hug and tell you this too shall pass. But please know we are praying and doing all we can to help. Please don't feel you cannot come to the convention because of your loss. We want you there. You need to have some normalcy back in your life. I have asked the vendors this year more than ever that we need them there for you. So please, be sure to apply for the scholarship if needed.

If you have specific questions regarding registration, you can contact our Registration  Coordinator, David & Jackie, at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Remember, "be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might."

In His Service,
Richard Millward
President

NOVEMBER 2012

From the President’s Desk

Dear Friends,

Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be.

Even so, Lord, quickly come, bring Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified, in Thy garner to abide;
Come, with all Thine angels come, raise the glorious harvest home.
- Henry Alford

            What are you thankful for?  Are you thankful?  At Thanksgiving, we all remember something that we are grateful for during the past year.  Some families have everyone gather around the table and say something that they are thankful for.  I remember doing that the year we were living in the British Virgin Islands, while serving as short-term missionaries.  There were people around the table that day from the main island of Tortola and the surrounding islands as well a college student from Missouri.  It was interesting to hear what they were thankful for. For my family it was a time of reminiscing as our pastor's wife had died the beginning of the month while we were away from New Jersey.  It was the most unusual Thanksgiving that I can recollect, since it is not a holiday there; just a regular day with temperatures in the 80's, a far cry from our usual November weather.

This Thanksgiving, create a new holiday tradition, if you don’t already have one. Gather your family around your thanksgiving table and share the blessings of God.  Maybe you could have your children each day write down something they are thankful for and then at the end of the month read it to the family.  Be creative!  As we remember those things that God has done for us, it will make us even more thankful.

Remember to Vote on Tuesday, November 6
As a nonprofit organization we cannot advocate a particular election position but we can encourage you to vote. Our freedoms depend on homeschool families actively engaging in the electoral process. Take time to educate yourself on the issues and VOTE!!!

OCTOBER 2012

From the President’s Desk

Desk

Friends,

This month ENOCH was busy getting our Exhibitor Registration and Workshop Speaker Registration pages up and running for the 2013 convention.  The Board has been busy making decisions and finalizing other related items to the convention. We have also been busy running the organization to help homeschoolers.

This month I decided to tell you what we have been up to and what we do for you.

As you can see we are working hard on passing along information for you as well as assisting homeschoolers with inquiries and fighting for the freedoms of homeschooling in New Jersey. ENOCH is here to serve, that is our calling. Even when we are beaten, discouraged and tired, we press on. As the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:14,
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Now with that being said, everything we do costs us time for all of you and time from our families. But it also costs ENOCH financially. Please consider sharing a financial gift with us at this time. If you can give, please click here and enter the amount you can give. Thank you.

In His Service,

Rich Millward
President

Dear Friends,

What interesting things did you do this summer? Our family was busy.  My wife, oldest daughter and I did volunteer work at a Christian camp in the Adirondacks of New York State, and not all at the same time.  I made four trips, some to drive kids up or back, but two times to be the head cook.  Even though it was for only five days, cooking for 120 to 150 people, it was a great experience. With the amount of traveling we did up and down the NY Thruway, you think they would give us a frequent driver discount.  Let us know of the interesting things that you did this summer.  Send an e-mail to me at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with a written description of what you did.  We will pick the most interesting one and send you a 2012 MP3 set and we will put what you did in next month’s e-newsletter.

Those long summer days are over and now “school” is starting. My youngest is already going full blast on her new Pre-Algebra curriculum and loves it (yea!).  As homeschooling parents we know school never ends, even for the summer. There are always those opportunities to learn something new or see something new.

Our Career and College Fair has been cancelled due to lack of interest and participation. It was very disheartening for us as an organization. We were unable to fill key volunteer positions needed. Thank you for those who showed an interest. We are sorry about the inconvenience.

We are constantly working on our convention plans. If there is a speaker you think would be of interest or a change that we should consider, please email me directly. When we hear from families who attend they give a different perspective than those working on the inside.

For up to date information, you can always follow us on Facebook. We are constantly giving out information and updates there.

Thank you all for your support. This year more than ever we greatly appreciate it.

God bless,
Rich Millward
President

ENOCH of New Jersey e-Newsletter

AUGUST 2012

From the President’s Desk

Desk

Dear Friends,

How is your summer going?  So far it has been very busy for our family and before you know it "school" will be starting again.  Make sure you enjoy this time with you family.

Now onto a more serious note: We heard many great things from both the attendees and exhibitors in regards to this year's convention, which was very encouraging; unfortunately the convention was not good overall for ENOCH, financially.  We were able to pay all of our expenses from the convention, but did not make enough money to run the organization for the coming year. The convention has been our only source of income for as long as ENOCH has been in existence.  Fortunately, we have some fund in reserve for years like this, but because of this year's financial situation the Board of ENOCH had to make some very difficult decisions.  One of the more noticed is cancelling the Support Group Leadership Conference that we hold every fall.  This I know will come as a disappointment to many who enjoyed coming year after year. We, as the Board, always look forward to this event and the time that we spend with many of the support group leaders, who have become personal friends through this conference.  There were other events and conferences we have to forgo or to curtail dramatically this year.

ENOCH had already made a commitment to the Career and College Fair being held October 6th and we will hold to that commitment.  We are hoping that this will be successful and not only be a blessing and help to the high school age homeschoolers throughout New Jersey and neighboring states, but also another source of income for ENOCH. The event will expose students to the wide range career possibilities whether professional, trade or vocational, and college choices.  Christian professionals in different fields will be available one-on-one to explain their experience and to counsel those interested in pursuing these careers.  They will provide invaluable information on required skills, educational requirements, compensation to be expected, perks and pitfalls and advantages and disadvantages.  The colleges will be there to help guide you toward preparation for the career of your choice.   This event addresses a major need to introduce students to the many possibilities for life work and to provide face-to-face guidance to areas not previously considered.  There will be suggested donation at the door. The Fair will be held at the Lincroft Bible Church, 790 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft, NJ, from 10am-6pm.  So reserve the date and watch for further details at www.enochnj.org.

We are already working hard on next year's convention, looking at ways to cut back on expenses while still trying to meet the needs of the homeschoolers of New Jersey.  If we have another year like we did in 2012 ENOCH will either be scaling our operations way back or cease to exist.  If ENOCH is not there, there could be rough times ahead for those in New Jersey, such as:

  1. Christian homeschoolers will have to travel to other states for a convention;
  2. The support groups throughout the state will lose being connected;
  3. New homeschoolers  may not be able to find someone to call for help, (my wife spends many hours on the phone each fall talking with parents who are frustrated with the public schools and are looking for an alternative);
  4. No monthly newsletter to give announcements and activities happening throughout the state;
  5. You will lose your voice on the New Jersey Homeschool Task Force, an organization that fights for your right to homeschool in New Jersey with the freedom we have.  The past year we have had more legislation against homeschoolers than ever before.

All these and more can affect many in our state. ENOCH does not offer just a convention. We offer other helps behind the scenes.
  
Here is one of ENOCH’s toughest situations: meeting everyone’s needs in relation to the convention. We have homeschoolers who state: “I don't come to the convention because there are not enough vendors."  Then we have the vendors say: "I don't come to your convention because there are not enough attendees."  We have speakers that people request then we are turned down because our convention is too small. We are in a Catch 22 situation.  There are others who state: "I don't need the convention anymore because I have the entire curriculum I need." But then we neglect the workshops. I was blessed tremendously by one of Mike Smith's sessions and we have been homeschooling for 14 years, so the convention is not just for new homeschoolers. My wife was able to sneak into two sessions. One she stated moved her to tears. The other blessed her tremendously. There is always something more to learn and be encouraged by. Remember when you first started homeschooling and hopefully we were there to help you.  Now we need you to help us to be around for the next wave of homeschoolers.

ENOCH will endeavor to be there for this coming year. Help us make this happen.

God bless you,
Rich Millward

JUNE 2012

From the President’s Desk

Desk
Dear Friends,

I would like to thank all of you (attendees, exhibitors, speakers and volunteers) for making this year’s convention a blessing to so many. This year I was not able to visit with exhibitors or attendees, but I did sit in on a few workshops.  One workshop that I was able to hear was Mike Smith's workshop call Remembering the Reason, Renewing the Vision. Personally, I thought it was a great workshop.  If you missed any session and did not pick up CDs of the workshops; you can order them by clicking here.
 
I would like to address a question I have been asked for a number of years:

"Why is it so expensive to attend the convention?"

 

Here are a few reasons:

We  at ENOCH have endeavored this year to keep our cost down as much as possible, but just like everyone else our costs keep going up.  We have not raised the registration price in a number of years. The Expo Center increased our costs this year and will have another increase next year. These costs we cannot control. This year we had to pay the decorator overtime because the hall had to be empty as quickly as possible for another function that was going to be there on Sunday. Usually the convention is not broken down until the next day.  When I left the convention hall Saturday night at 9:00 all the booths, tables, chair and everything else from our convention were gone and the next function was being setup.  Pretty amazing!

Due to the financial climate of New Jersey, we saw record requests for scholarships for attendees who have struggled with unemployment, health issues, and the list goes on.

Whatever monies we make from the convention, are used to help with legislative issues facing homeschoolers while working with the Task Force. Also, we endeavor to reach our Support Group Leaders with a one day conference in the fall. Plus running the organization.

I hope this answers the question.

Plans for next year’s convention are well underway. The dates are May 17 & 18, 2013. We are working on our speaker lineup, so keep watch on ENOCH's webpage for details.

Career & College Fair

For those who did not attend the convention, ENOCH announced a "Career and College Fair" to be held Saturday, Oct 6th, from 10am - 4pm at the Lincroft Bible Church, in Lincroft, NJ.  The church is just off of Exit 109 of the Garden State Parkway directly across from the main entrance of Brookdale Community College.  Colleges from around the tri-state area will be represented and also people from the community who will be there sharing about their careers.  There will be brief presentations giving by individuals regarding their careers, but they will also be available for you and your teenager to talk to them one on one.  This will be a great opportunity for your teenager to be able ask them questions about their careers, what kind of schooling do you need, etc.  If your son or daughter has a career in mind or maybe they are thinking about several, this will be the opportunity for them to talk with someone in those fields.  Keep an eye out on ENOCH's website and in the summer edition of the ENOCH E-Newsletter for further details.

Thank you.

In His service,
Rich Millward
President

Our 22nd Annual Convention is May 18-19, 2012! Register Today!

Dear Friends,
The convention is just around the corner! Get ready!  Check out the list of exhibitors on our website so you can plan on who you want to stop by.  Click here and look over the workshops schedule to see which one that you want to make sure you attend.  Don't forget you can buy CDs of those you miss.  We have an additional workshop that will be presented at lunch time: Mike Snavely from Mission: Imperative!, will be presenting, The Horror of the Flood., in the Grand Ballroom.  Check out the updated, Exhibitor List on ENOCH’s website.

Remember you can still register on-line until Friday, May 11th and if you prefer to mail in your registration it must be postmarked by that date.   Registering before the convention saves time when you arrive at the convention. 

There is still room in the Children’s Program which can be done either on-line or through the mail.  There are seven great session by The Knight Lights.  There is special pricing this year for either multiple sessions and for more than one child.

A few thoughts on preparing yourself for the Convention.  Save yourself money and pack a lunch, you eat out on the grass near the front entrance or in your vehicle.  Please do not bring you own food to eat at the Food Court tables.  Just a word about the Food Court, we received several comments on last year’s surveys in regards to the prices charged at the Food Court.  ENOCH has no control over the prices charged at the Food Court; the concession company is contracted by the Expo Center and not ENOCH.

There is still time to sign up to volunteer.  If you have already registered click here to go to the volunteer sign-up page.  You need to register first before you can volunteer.
 
Please continue to pray for the ENOCH Board, Convention Staff and all those who volunteer year round who have put many hours into preparing for this year’s convention.  When you come to the convention make sure that you stop by at the ENOCH Booth and say hello. We would love to meet you. We will be around the convention hall as well as at the ENOCH booth.

See you at the convention.

Our 22nd Annual Convention is May 18-19, 2012! Register Today!

JUST A REMINDER THAT EARLY-BIRD REGISTRATION ENDS APRIL 15TH! 
AFTER THAT DATE THE COST GOES UP!

This month there is a lot going on at ENOCH and I would like to give you a perspective of ENOCH that many of you may not know.  I remember writing something similar a few years ago and many folks responded that they had no idea. Because we have many new homeschoolers joining us, I felt the need to share the facts again.

ENOCH is a non-profit organization and as such, we:

You see my point. Without you, the homeschooling families of New Jersey, we cannot function. We need you to help us. A small handful of people cannot do it alone. Nor do I want them to.

Recently my wife shared with me some feelings concerning ENOCH.  People say they want a teen track but very few teens register for it; people want a Children’s Program but state how expensive it is; people want to see certain vendors at the convention, but unless there are attendees, the vendors don’t come.  I know she’s right. I know some of the volunteers are tired. I know this convention takes a huge chunk out of our lives, (did you know that we are already working on next year's convention?).  But I also know there are families and individuals that need this convention. There are parents looking for help for their child. There are teens looking for direction. Children have special needs that many don't seem to understand. That's what ENOCH is all about.

I look back at what NJ went through this past year with the homeschool bills that were introduced.  We gave you updates and told you what was needed and you re-acted accordingly.  NJ homeschoolers united together to fight the cause against government control, and we need you to be united with us again.

On a daily basis, our Facebook page is updated with things that we hope help, bless, and encourage you. But this too takes time from someone’s schedule to put the word out there.

I think you get my drift. ENOCH is here for you, but we cannot do it alone.

I want to ask you to do one thing for me: Pray that God will be magnified. If we miss or forget to do all for the glory of God, then we have missed the boat and it’s time to walk away.

Thank you for listening and allowing me to share my thoughts.

God bless you all,
Rich Millward
President

ENOCH of New Jersey e-Newsletter

MARCH 2012

From the President’s Desk

Desk
Dear Friends,

This is a BIG month for ENOCH! We have been extremely busy here with planning the convention and legislative updates. So I thought I would give you an update.

Legislative Update
First, I would like to thank everyone who called the members of both the Assembly and Senate Education Committees in regards to raising the compulsory attendance age from 16 to 18, (A1441 and S647).   Both of the bills have been sent to their corresponding Appropriations Committees.  The assembly bill has been amended to clarify “that its provisions are not to be construed as to require a student who is home-schooled to continue receiving instruction beyond the age of 16.”  The New Jersey Homeschool Task Force will continue to watch these bills.  
Senate Bill S791 - Requiring medical exams, submission of student portfolio and letter of decision to homeschool sent to the school district in which a homeschool student resides, has been referred to the Senate Education Committee.  This year there is no companion bill in the Assembly.
 
Assembly Bill A1375 - Mandatory homeschool notice, this bill has been referred to the Assembly Education Committee.  There is no Senate companion bill.  Again the Task Force is continuing to monitor both of these bills.

There is no action required on any of these bills at this time.

Convention Update
Our Board and Department Coordinators have been working diligently to make this convention the best ever.

March 1st our convention page went live and you can now register online. You can visit us at http://www.enochnj.org/index.php/2012convention/2012registration_details to find all the information about the convention and register

Last year, you spoke and we listened. First, this year we are offering special pricing for the Children’s Program. If you register for more than two sessions, you receive a discount. If you register for all seven session, you receive the biggest discount. Second, our Children’s Program will be run this year by the Knight Lights. This group has headed the Harvey Cedars Homeschool Week for the last few years and many are already looking forward to them. Third, we added an additional session. So now, there are seven sessions instead of six. And finally, the Children’s Program is online for registration. After you receive your registration confirmation, you will see a link for the Children’s Program online registration. Click it and it will take you to the registration process for the children’s program.
 
The first 700 who attend the convention, will receive a free CD gift with over $250 worth of free curriculum, stories and coupons.

The Teen Track this year will be headed by Mission Imperative, Mike Snavely. You can register your teen in the online registration in addition to their registration for the convention.

Patrick Henry College Prep Academy
PHC Prep Academy has nine online Advanced Placement courses from which to choose, and many students find the dynamics of a group class encouraging. PHC Prep Academy is not only for teens who will be attending Patrick Henry College, but for any high school student interested in online AP classes with a Christian worldview. And for every student taking a PHC Prep Academy course who uses our group number during registration, ENOCH earns $25! (If the family has an HSLDA membership, they save $50–100 per course and your group earns $25.) If you want more information, visit the website here: http://www.phcprep.org/. If you need our Group Number, just contact our office at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)  for the information needed.

As you can see it is all coming together. Our speakers are excited about coming. If you have attended our convention in the past you should have received a postcard with the website information for the convention. If you have did not receive a postcard, just visit our website at www.enochnj.org and click Annual Convention. You will find everything there.

You can follow us on Facebook. Just search for “ENOCH” and join our group. We endeavor to pass along homeschooling issues and news on homeschooling here to keep you informed.

Thank you again for your support and prayers.

In His Service,

Rich Millward
President
