Blogging Conference for Homeschoolers: BEECH recap

Blogging, Blabbering, and Bonding: The BEECH Convention

You might have noticed that I was not blogging from the Midwest last week. I was in sunny (well on some days) Florida with a group of Christian homeschool bloggers. This was the first ever BEECH event. We met in a living room and shared various blog topics and tips. We ate together. We got to hang with each other. At times we shared our hearts. I don't even know if I can put into words what this week meant to me. So instead I'll show some pictures.

What did BEECH mean to me?

This event provided an opportunity to meet in person many bloggers I already knew online but not in real life. I was able to meet homeschoolers on various parts of the homeschool path---some with young children to those who have graduated several children from high school and college. I laughed--- a lot. I shared and learned about the art of blogging. I slept very little. I might have even almost cried a couple times or two. My heart is now connected to these fabulous women. BEECH was a gift.

We are working on bringing this to you. BEECH will be a place where homeschool moms can retreat and build real relationships while learning the ins-and-outs of blogging. Subscribe to the BEECH newsletter to stay up-to-date with all the news.

I so wish I could have gone with ya'll!!! I grew up in Vero Beach and learned how to swim at that beach!
I am praying and hoping that the Lord will provide for me to go next year! Lord willing and I live!
Thankyou all for being so encouraging!

I prayed for each of you throughout the mini conference. There's nothing like women connecting in friendship and spirit to learn and grow together -- so blessed to watch relationships blossom. Now I'm excited to see where the Lord takes you next on your BEECH journey!
