This year's annual Christian Heritage Washington State Family Discipleship & Homeschooling Conference is only seven weeks away! I just cannot tell you what a blessing this conference has been to our family. Attending has been one of the highlights of our homeschooling year for the past five years, and I'm certain this year will be the same. :)
Need inspiration? Need encouragement? Need fellowship with like-minded families? Register here and join us; I promise, you won't be disappointed. A bonus this year for returning families is the Christian Heritage Ambassador Family program: Returning families who bring a family who has never attended the conference both receive 40% off registration; all you have to do is preregister by April 12. Of course registration at the door is always an option if you can't preregister, but you will pay a little more.
And now, just for fun, join me on a trip down memory lane...
2008 -- our first year attending the Christian Heritage conference. We were blessed to have our oldest daughter with us that year as well as to have Doug Phillips as the keynote speaker. The only question we asked ourselves after the conference was why we hadn't attended the two previous years!
2009 -- year two. A fairly large group from our church enjoyed spending two days together in fellowship as we were encouraged by keynotes by Voddie Baucham. A couple of the fun things Daniel and AnnaLynn enjoy about attending the conference are swimming in the hotel swimming pool, breakfast (waffles) in the hotel dining room each morning, and our invasion of Azteca restaurant after the conference is over before making the I-5 drive south to home.
2010 -- year three. We learned so much from Ken Ham this year. Our Daniel, a real creation science buff, had a question or two for Mr. Ham who graciously took the time to speak with our young son who was only 11 years old at the time.
2011 -- year four. The keynote speaker this time was Kevin Swanson. If you've ever heard him speak, you know what a passionate message he brings. I highly recommend his book, The Second Mayflower.
2012 -- year five. Last year we were again blessed to hear encouraging keynote messages by Voddie Baucham who just happens to be AnnaLynn's favorite speaker. :)
2013 will surely be another conference to remember with keynotes by Doug Phillips of the Vision Forum. We're excited to have discovered a family not even two miles away with whom we will be registering to receive that 40% discount! If any of you dear readers decide to go, please let me know so we can say hello to one another!
