Preparing Faithful Generations...
The homeschool pioneers of the early 1980s had a dream for their children - a gigantic dream that their children would be mighty in Spirit and thriving in the work that the Lord prepared for them to do.
Many of us are now seeing the fruition of our dreams in the lives of our young adult grandchildren. And just because our dreams have passed down through three generations now, doesn't mean that they're any less vivid. They are more intense than ever!
That is why we chose "Preparing Faithful Generations" for this year's convention theme. Godly grandparents, their children, and their grandchildren working together are a great defense against an unbelieving world.
“O God, You have taught me from my youth; and to this day I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come." ~ Psalm 71:17-18
"I wasn't sure I wanted to homeschool. I had been thinking about it for over a year, but gathering information and researching it on my own was overwhelming. This weekend's convention solidified it for me. So many resources, so many knowledgeable people, so much support! Plus there were several sessions to lift up my marriage, too. What a great weekend for my family! Thank you, MÂCHÉ!"
"It was another great experience and very refreshing. I can't for the life of me figure out why more veteran homeschoolers don't make a habit of attending every year. We have been homeschooling long enough to observe that those families who do not regularly attend the conference are the same ones who struggle with their vision and goals and too often quit at the most important time of their children's lives. Thanks to all those who helped produce another great conference! May God bless you with the strength to continue!"
"Looking forward to and attending MÂCHÉ is second only to Christmas each year! I love being surrounded by like-minded believers and gleaning from the wisdom and perspective of those who've gone before me."
"This event was a new experience for us. I enjoyed it much more than I expected and found myself coming away refreshed, encouraged, and equipped to make positive changes and plans for the next year."
"We have come to the MÂCHÉ Conference every year for many years and are still amazed at how it seems to always have relevant information and encouragement."
"My husband and I were very blessed by the weekend! We were able to create a vision statement, goals, pick curriculum, and be challenged and encouraged in our relationships with God, each other, and in our parenting. Thank you for all of your hard work to make this experience possible for us. We feel humbled and empowered as we look forward to beginning our home educating journey."
