CHEC (Christian Home Educators of Colorado) have an annual conference for the region each June. We try to always catch some of it - this year the have 25 speakers + a day of Vision Forum people and a day of Ken Hamm creationism. Makes for a great 3-day conference and uplifting to many of our church families (we all home school). Wonder if any attend similar conferences in your neck of the woods? IN 1985-91 I was a featured speaker at more than 200 such for Christian education - private school/home school. Meeting folks and helping encourage, instruct and inspire them in training children was a blessed ministry!
