Homeschool Conferences

Review of past week…

Last week was busy! Here’s a short summary starting on Wednesday…

First of all, we got the orders off. Yea! (Thanks to Chrissy and Nickie for doing orders for us so often!)

Next, we got Mom, Dad and Sarah off. Yea! (That was a big accomplishment.) They planned to leave at 9am and ended up leaving at 4pm…but they had good reasons for leaving late. It was a lot of work to pack that whole van and trailer!

Finally, Stephen and I were free to pack for our trip to Indianapolis. We loaded up from our new building, which made things easier. We finished packing late and then went home to pack our personal luggage…

At 5am Stephen left with one mini van because he had to pick up some materials in Chicago on the way.

At 7:30 am, I locked up and left in another mini van headed for Indianapolis with Nickie, Rebekah, and Rachel.

The whole conference went smooth and it was a blessing to be there!

We were excited to talk with several girls who are hoping to begin Bright Lights groups. Here is Nickie talking with a young lady who is hoping to start a group soon.

I’m sorry I don’t have time to share more details with you. For now, I figured that pictures are better than nothing. I’m leaving tomorrow morning for the Kansas City Homeschool Conference. I’d appreciate prayer because I am doing one of Sarah’s sessions that I’ve never done before. God bless you all! Keep your eyes on Jesus. Hebrews 12:1-3.


  1. I like seeing the pictures Grace! Thanks for sharing them. But isn’t that Rachel traveling with you, not Chrissy? 🙂

  2. One slight correction, Grace. Rachel came along, not Chrissy. 🙂 Though we would have loved it if Chrissy could have come, too.

    Just to expound on what Grace wrote, we were really encouraged by the number of parents and daughters who were interested in Bright Lights, and we had lots of good talks with girls and parents alike. It’s always encouraging to see how the Lord is raising up godly families all over the country. Maybe a few more Bright Lights groups will be starting up in Indiana soon!

    It was a great trip, and we only got lost about 3 times, right? We’ve gotten very good at making up our own directions. 🙂 But most of the credit has to go to Nickie. I don’t know what we would have done without our Navigator! Thanks, Nickie.

    The Lord is using Bright Lights all over the U.S. and it was a great opportunity to introduce BL to families in IN. Be in prayer for the families in Indiana! (And you can pray that more godly older girls will start Bright Lights groups!)

    Hope you don’t mind my little additional comments, Grace. 🙂


  3. Thanks, Bekah! You have permission to expound on my posts any time you’d like! 🙂 (In fact maybe I should hire you to write them for me…. 🙂 )

    Tell Rachel I’m so sorry about that mistake…I must have just been really tired or something.

    Things are going well here in Kansas City, PTL!!

    Love in Jesus,
