It's the event of the year for a huge bunch of us homeschooling moms. On Friday, close to a thousand women will
Over the past decade, Sally and Clay Clarkson have developed a conference that meets a real need for those of us who spend the bulk of our lives in our homes with our precious kids and sometimes lose focus and energy in all the "dailiness." It's a time to pull away, stay in a nice hotel, eat wonderful food, have some time to meet and visit with other women who are also on this journey, and listen to speakers chosen especially for their ability to help us regain perspective and enthusiasm for what God has called us to do. Each year, we come away refreshed and energized for the matchless privilege of being wives and mothers.
Last year the Clarksons took a break, trying to discern whether continuing the annual hotel conferences was really what God wanted them to do. We missed it so much! So it's a special joy this year to caravan up to Irving for our beloved WholeHearted Mother Conference.
And a extra-special joy for Granny is that four of my daughters will be with our San Antonio group. Aubrey, who has been my longest companion at these conferences, will be going up with us; CJ, who goes each year to help give the nursing mothers the opportunity to go by watching babies will again accompany us; and Kristen and Annie will be flying in from the east coast. Kristen has been many times; this will be Annie's first and I'm beyond joyful that she's joining us! (For those of you still awaiting this stage in life, it is SUCH a blessing to be the mom of moms! And it's also a privilege for me to have dozens of adopted "daughters" who are also devoted to the task of WholeHearted Mothering!)
So...are any of you out there in Bloggityville meeting up with us this weekend? If so, we need to figure out a way to connect!
