Our time at the homeschool conference in Big Sandy, TX was extremely rewarding! We listened to good preaching, met new friends, and enjoyed wonderful fellowship! The days were spent in sessions for old and young alike (With lots of activities for the little ones), and our _MG_6939evenings were filled with food, fellowship, Rook and other games with friends, and sharing testimonies of God’s faithfulness!

We were abl_MG_6960e to participate in a Questions and Answers session  with the Duggars and Gil was able to share a message from the heart for families at the conference! We were blessed to listen to Tom Harmon, Don Richardson, and so many other terrific speakers.

We enjoyed the fellowship so much that we had a hard time leaving and cried upon departure… but we’ll look forward to the next opportunity to be with dear friends and to encourage one another in the Lord! Until then, we’ve been refreshed and are eager to serve the Lord in our own community with a renewed _MG_6131zeal!
