ARCH Sponsored Catholic Homeschool Conference was a blast. I owe my thanks for inviting me in as a speaker and vendor. It was an honor and a lot of fun.
I was asked to be a "vendor" and set up a booth. I was wanted to be present to chat with people. It was like having coffee with me in my living room . . . well without all the kids running around and the laundry piled up. Considering I love to chatting with people this was a great set up. I really enjoyed interacting with people about their fears, their goals and their excitement in homeschooling.
J wanted me to look professional and be the part so he had a banner for me and had my blog titles and covers put on it along with the Catholic Coffee Club logo and my head shot. I was so supported!
My talk was titled "Purposeful Homeschooling." I talked about our family motto, "The goal is heaven and everything else is gravy" and how that motto has helped us to stay on track through the years.
I love public speaking and really enjoyed meeting several of the families after my talk. I guess it went well, except that after hearing my introduction that included a reminder to turn off cell phones I was mortified when my phone went off. I turned the ringer on when I thought I was turning it off. UGH!I do want to thank my dear friend who invited me to speak and who believed in my abilities and message enough to give me a chance.
