Well, thank you to anyone who prayed for our trip to Greenville! The conference was wonderful and had an amazing turnout for its first time being held there. The people were incredibly friendly (which shouldn't be surprising since it WAS held in the south ;O) ) and there was a vast array of speakers.

The response for our sessions was great and it was such a privilege for both Tim and I to get to share and encourage these precious people who are walking a very similar road as us! Brennan Dean and his team did a great job organizing everything and seeing to the needs of their speakers! I am actually really excited about heading to Cincy next week to speak!

We were very sad when we found out we had missed Benji's first high school homerun, but we did make it back in time to see him play at Coolray Field where the AAA Braves play! What a rush for the boys to see their names on the big screen and pulling out a hard fought win was icing on the cake!

Here is a picture of our handsome first baseman in the dugout!

Come see us at the Midwest Homeschool Convention!!


  1. I'm glad it went well! For some reason I thought it was the weekend before, but I figured it out :)

  2. Barb,
    I was sitting in your workshop Saturday afternoon missing my boys first baseball game ever. My mom was sending me texts keeping me posted! They are only 6 and 8 and I know there will be many more to come. My favorite quote of all weekend "is it normal to threaten to send your kids to public school before you leave to speak at a homeschool convention?" Thank you for your encouragement and laughter! I have new insight and inspiration to keep on doing what I love!

  3. Barb, I know you blessed many with your love, grace, humor, and encouragement. Way to go. Your boy is so handsome!

  4. I was privileged enough to get to hear both you and Tim speak on Friday. Thank you both for your willingness to leave your children (and your boy's baseball game) to share with us. I really enjoyed hearing you.
