We are attending the Colorado Homeschool Conference otherwise known as Christian Home Educators of Colorado (CHEC). The more and more that I get to know the gentlemen that run this particular conference the more I am impressed by their vision. Did you get that? This conference is run by MEN....with a VISION!
Our conference day started by listening to Doug Phillips talk about family vision. I was so encouraged! Then we listened to Kevin Swanson talk about his vision of mentorship and apprenticeship.
I am all for this!
Tomorrow is Voddie Baucham and some more from Doug Phillips and Kevin Swanson.
I have been so blessed by this conference. Let me count the ways:
1. Our family's admission and concert tickers were all taken care of by CHEC. They have a fund for widows and Kevin Swanson is a huge advocate of taking good care of widows and orphans. Praise the Lord!
2. Our friends are allowing us to use their hotel room adjacent to the conference center for one of our older children to watch the younger ones.
3. I received an extra ten dollars off of the rate on the hotel room.
4. The family who is cooking all of the food for the conference workers and speakers insists that we eat with them. So, now our food is taken care of also.
I am truly overwhelmed by the graciousness of these brothers and sisters in Christ. I am also overwhelmed by God's good gifts. My cup runneth over!
