Friday Night - No Kids Night Spa …a Renaissance for the Mother’s Soul
Time of Fellowship, “Spa” Treatments,
Easy Games, Special Treats

Experience a memorable and joyful evening when beleaguered and undervalued homeschool mothers will join each other for some fun and fellowship – all sans children, those little wonders who have no idea how much we sacrifice for them. We’ll have easy games, spa treatments, soothing exercise, and special treats.

Saturday - A Time of Worship, Fellowship, and Spiritual Refreshment

Start and end your day with worship leader John Carter, helping to bring our focus to Christ. Listen to two sessions by Jeni Chase which will help you “Breathe Life into Your Homeschool” and help you renew your focus. Enjoy fellowship with other homeschool moms during lunch which is provided midday.
