real encouragement for real homeschooling moms

6th annual treasures of a mother’s heart ~ a day of encouragement for homeschooling moms

Tada tada tada!!!

I am happy to announce the upcoming retreat for homeschooling moms and hope that many of you are able to join us for this wonderful day.  It will be our 6th year and we have some awesome things planned to encourage you in both your walk with the Lord and in building relationships with your husband and children.

Here are the details::

Date:  November 8, 2008

Time:  8:30 am to 3:00 pm

Place: Lariat Club, Peoria Illinois

Cost:  to be determined but promise we are trying to keep it reasonable

The day will include inspirational speakers, encouraging testimonies of God’s grace in the lives of real homeschooling moms just like you, lovely music, a continental breakfast, delicious luncheon, homeschooling mom humor, scrumptious desserts and chocolate served at your table throughout the whole day!

This year’s theme is God’s Gifts to Homeschooling Moms” and we will be considering how the Lord has gifted each of us with families and situations that are unique gifts from Him . We will also see how the gift of God’s Word and the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, are blessings to treasure every single days as we walk the path of homeschooling.

If you would like to have your name added to the Treasures mailing list to receive more information and a registration brochure, drop me a note at

By the way, this picture is from last year’s Treasures retreat and was taken while Shari Pittenger was explaining to us why we are all warrior princesses!

(An alert reader and conference attendee pointed out to me that this is the 6th year and she is correct.  Sorry for any confusion!)

We DO have a wonderful time and I always meet so many new kindred spirits. Katie, do you live close enough to join us? That would be great!

Seriously considering making it to this year, however I’m going to need some info on hotels that are nearby. Could you give me a recommendation (or at least the ones to avoid if necessary by email)?

I’m traveling from the western side of MO and have not been in your fair city but once just for a day visit.

Any help appreciated!

Lesa, it would be great to meet you. I will send you an e-mail with the motel info and I also know there are others coming from Missouri so maybe you could connect with them. Girl road trip…..YEAH!
