I am so excited to finally be able to share this! For the last few years at Great Homeschool Conventions, I’ve joined my dear friends Pam Barnhill and Sarah Mackenzie for a panel discussion, addressing questions about everything related to homeschooling, parenting, and anything in between. It’s always been one of my favorite moments of every GHC event and a great way to encourage and connect with so many of you. GHC has recognized the value and community it builds, as well, and is introducing something brand-new this year at all seven events – The Real Mom Tour!
The Real Mom Tour is really a dream come true, a chance to pour back into the community that we care so much about. It’s like a big party, a mom’s night out, a time to come together and laugh and cry and just enjoy each other and connect on a deeper level. We know it gets hard – we’ve been there. We know you doubt yourself – we’ve been there, too. The Real Mom Tour is our love letter to you, the homeschooling mom, to remind you that you are not alone, that you are more than able, and that you deserve a night out.
The Real Mom Tour will take place on Thursday night of every GHC event, so make sure you register and attend the whole weekend! Pam, Sarah, and I will be discussing several topics, including finding contentment in the age of social media, falling more in love with homeschooling, and enjoying your kids where they are. We want to encourage you, give you practical advice, and hopefully even make you laugh a little! There will be some light refreshments, prizes, and games – but don’t worry, introverts, I’ll make sure you have a chance to win without leaving your comfort zones!
This moms-only event is a testament to how much GHC values mothers and the work we do as homeschoolers. Between our years of experience homeschooling our own children, the age ranges, the different methods, and the very different personalities that Sarah, Pam, and I bring to the table, you are sure to leave feeling energized, understood, and capable. For a preview of what’s to come, check out Pam’s podcast episode featuring all three of us chatting about all things GHC!
If you’ve attended one of our Real Mom panel discussions before, you know to expect great things from the Real Mom Tour. And don’t worry, we’ll still have the panel on a different day, allowing you to ask any and all questions (and possibly get some chocolate) and enjoy even more of our antics and wisdom! Between my new talks, Pam’s new workshops, Sarah’s events, the Real Mom Tour, and the Real Mom panel, there is no way to leave a GHC event near you without being encouraged, empowered, and uplifted. This year promises to have more opportunities than ever to pour into you, make you laugh, make you cry, and make you feel like you really can do this homeschooling thing.
We can’t wait to see you there, so make sure you register for the upcoming GHC events, and don’t forget to use the code RLLGHC for $5 off your registration fee. See you soon!
