On March 20-21st, our family was privileged to organize a conference for KBR subscribers. The Joyful Daughters Conference brought together young ladies and their mothers from around the country for a time of seeking the Word of God together. Sessions were given by many speakers and we are so grateful for the wisdom they shared!

He is Risen!

He is risen, he is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice:
He has burst his three days’ prison;
let the whole wide earth rejoice:
death is conquered, man is free,
Christ has won the victory.


He is risen, he is risen!
He hath opened heaven’s gate:
we are free from sin’s dark prison,
risen to a holier state;
and a brighter Easter beam
on our longing eyes shall stream.

“In the end of the sabbath,
as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week,
came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
And, behold, there was a great earthquake:
for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven,
 and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
And the angel answered and said unto the women,
Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”
{Matthew 28}

After our time in Kentucky, we headed south to visit extended family. We were thankful for good weather and safe travels.

The Gen2 Conference

Gen2 Conference - SarahLeePhoto.com-7502

Last week, we attended the Gen2 Conference held at the Creation Museum in Kentucky. The Gen2 survey was a survey of young people raised in religious homes, between the ages of 18-38. The data gathered from this large survey was to reveal key influences of the first generation of homeschoolers and analyze their current situation/belief. At the Gen2 conference, the survey results were revealed, along with excellent commentary by many Christian leaders and leaders of the homeschool movement, as the data was analyzed.

We were very grateful to be able to attend the conference, it being during a time of year when our milking animals are dry and we are able to travel, with someone to care for the animals while we are away. The speakers all had excellent points and we all came away with nuggets of wisdom learned, and a fresh vision for pressing forward in our duties to be faithful to the Lord, in a culture that is diametrically opposed to His law and method for raising children.

We had the privilege of helping prepare and serve the meals during the conference. What fun memories and friendships were made while putting together hundreds of lunches – or lasagna dinners – or root beer floats!

This panel session was very interesting – “Why we Aren’t Quitting – Full Steam Ahead!”

A few things that were highlighted in this excellent panel by second generation homeschoolers:

  • God’s way of raising up the next generation for His glory is the only “method” that works. The survey results merely proved that. We must be committed to raising families that will love and serve Him, so that they will take forth the Gospel into the next generation.

  • Homeschooling is not merely a method of education; it is a context for the Biblical discipleship of the next generation.

  • The “homeschool pioneers” have sacrificed so much these past few decades to establish freedoms and progress in the movement. The second generation — the millennials — must be faithful stewards of the many talents they have been given because of their parents’ labor. They must choose to stand on Biblical principles which their parents have fought for, and commit to standing true to God’s Word as they press forward.

Howdy, Texan Friends

1-20-15

Last week, our dear friends from Texas came for a visit. Tiffany and Sarah have been friends for a very long time, but have not seen each other for almost five years. They have been praying for an opportunity to get together again – and the Lord recently worked all the details out for her brother Justin to drive them up for a few days’ visit. We all were blessed by the fellowship!
