Spring is here! For my family, spring means lots of state Home School Conferences. This weekend our family made plans to go to two Home School conferences (Indianapolis and Cincinnati) at the same time by bringing a team of Bright Lights leaders, dropping them off in Indianapolis, and then heading to Cincinnati with just our family.
We had fun setting up our booth during a thunderstorm, especially because we were setting up in a tent.
Last night when the conference started, a lady came to our booth and gave Sarah an encouraging report. She said, “My kids and I heard you and your brother and sister speak about sibling relationships at a conference a couple years ago. We liked the way you used skits to demonstrate what you were teaching, so we decided to come up with a skit that our family could present together, which included the gospel. At first we just did it for just a very small group, but then the kid’s grandpa saw it and got excited about it. He invited them to do it for a larger group. One time, after we had done our skit for a group of about 300 people, a lady came and told me “I turned away from God and didn’t want anything to do with Christianity. But now—after seeing your kids—I’ve decided to come back to the Lord.” When families work together as a team, it makes a powerful impact for the Lord!
