The Texas Homeschool Moms’ Winter Summit

Homeschool Moms' Winter Summit

I’m back from a PHENOMENAL weekend of encouragement, laughter, and praise.

I joined in with over 120 other homeschool moms who were thirsting to know that God is guiding our steps, even when it feels like we are messing this whole thing up.

We laughed and cried and laughed until we cried and prayed and sang songs of praise to God. We found new friends and hugged old friends.

Texas Summit Pajama Party

We even got a li’l crazy and danced late into the night at a pajama party! Homeschool mamas know how to par-TAY!

Texas Summit door prizes

The door prizes were off da HOOK. In fact, it just so happens that we had enough door prizes this year to allow every single attendee to choose one! How about that for pampering homeschool moms?!

Staples even donated this laptop case

with this brand new Chromebook inside as a grand prize to bless one happy mom! Staples loves homeschool moms, and all I had to do was mention our event and they jumped at the chance to knock our socks off with this door prize!

I’m telling you, if you are a homeschool mom and are thirsting for encouragement to finish well the race that God has set before you, you need to find a way to get yourself to The Homeschool Moms’ Winter Summit! There are 2 locations, so be sure to check it out, and register!

Then grab your girlfriends and get ready for the most refreshing weekend of the year!

7 Shocking Truths About Homeschoolers

7 Shocking Truths About Homeschoolers

1. We really don’t know how to line up.

You’ve heard the rumors and it’s true. You can always identify a group of homeschoolers at the zoo or a museum because we don’t line up. We “gob” up.

2. We don’t “go to” p.e.

Yep. You heard it here first. Homeschoolers climb and run and bike and cartwheel and join soccer and gymnastics and swim teams. But if you ask them about p.e. they might ask you what those letters stand for.

3. We don’t line up for lunch. (See #1 above.)

In fact, sometimes homeschoolers realize they feel hungry, and they wander into the kitchen, grab an apple, and start eating it without forming any line whatsoever

Homeschoolers eat lunch in the kitchen, whenever their mom gets it ready, or in some cases whenever they get it out of the fridge and slap it together for themselves. They eat around the table, talking, and laughing, and enjoying the break in the day with the rest of their family.

Or on a blanket under a tree in the yard. Whichever.

4. We’re mavericks.

We’re accustomed to blazing our own trails. Marching to our own beat. If there isn’t a class, program, or group we need, we start our own.

5. We check out as many books as we want at the library.

And we read them all. (This only applies if you have an awesome library or a really stubborn mom [see #4 above] who challenges the library board on check out limits.)

6. We forget what grade we’re in.

Occasionally, okay… often, we pause and look up and to the left at an imaginary calendar of years whenever anyone asks us what grade one of the kids is in.

7. We’re actually quite well socialized. Thanks for asking.

Homeschooled teens aren’t afraid to pick up the phone and call around to find where they can buy a couple of alpacas to give for a birthday gift, or stop in the middle of an algebra lesson and head out the door when a neighbor needs help, or single-handedly organize a fund raiser to build a water well in Africa.

New Year’s Resolutions Idea For Parents and Kids

Do you do New Year’s resolutions? Do you ever do them with your kids?

It’s tough to stick to a vague resolution like “lose weight” or “be more cheerful”, isn’t it?

What if I did all the work of planning a daily Bible study to encourage you to use kinder words? What if I wrote a kids’ version to be a companion to the adult version so you could go through it right along with your kids?

I have done just that!

These are printable Bible studies and journals. I have used the same scriptures in the same order for both, so you can do it with your children! (Read reviews of the adult version here.)

The kids’ version has dotted lines, and examples of the daily Bible verse in cursive and in printing. There is also space for the child to complete the steps in the S.O.A.P. method of Bible study. (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer)

I wrote the kids’ version with my children in mind who are ages 7-13, so I have explained the meaning of each scripture in language they would understand.

This printable ebook set would make an excellent family devotion and New Year’s resolution!

What Do You Want For Christmas, Mama?

If your kids are like mine, they probably ask you for hints of what you would enjoy for a Christmas gift.

Homeschool Moms' Winter Summit

Why not suggest they give you a weekend retreat? The tickets to this event are $89, and if you share a room with 3 friends, like I did last year, your room will be $30/night. That makes this gift $150. Maybe your children and your parents could go together to get this for you.

The planning team of The Homeschool Moms’ Winter Summit is working and praying daily to do our best to bless as many moms as possible with a weekend of refreshment and encouragement.

If you have family or friends asking you what you want for Christmas, suggest they buy you a ticket to The Summit! You will come home with new determination to finish well the task God has put before you.

Remember, all those registered by December 31 will be put in a drawing, and 2 ladies will have the cost of their registrations refunded!
