Isn’t it funny how the Lord chooses to work? Honestly, how many of us can say that 10 years ago we would have imagined what our life would look like today? Would you have imagined that God would have called you to share your heart with thousands of others every week? Would you have imagined how wide the borders of your ministry to others would become thanks to the internet? God is so good to allow us to serve Him in ways that we would have never imagined, isn’t He?!? Our family is certainly in the “never would have imagined” boat! For years God has allowed us to serve with a mission organization called Worldwide Tentmakers, and last year, He blessed us even more when He allowed us to start Teach Them Diligently Convention as an offshoot of that mission. Since it’s inception, we have stood in awe of how God has worked in relation to that endeavor. And since all profits from Teach Them Diligently Convention pour directly into missions, last year’s convention poured thousands of dollars into a mission work we are starting in Poland. See! Isn’t it amazing how God works?? Now, we need your help in promoting our events!
Teach Them Diligently Convention
Teach Them Diligently Convention is a distinctly Christian homeschool, discipleship, and parenting convention that was first held in March 2012. Many of you know us well, but some of you are just getting introduced to us. If you are just getting to know us, you will quickly learn that there is nothing quite like a Teach Them Diligently Convention. It is our hope that Christian families, whether they homeschool or not, will come to be encouraged and equipped to continue to shepherd their children’s hearts and to prepare them for what God has called them to do with their lives. Last year, about 7,000 people crowded into the facility and the atmosphere was WONDERFUL! We look forward to seeing what God will do this year as we expand into three markets in May 2013—Spartanburg, SC, Nashville, TN and Omaha, NE. With a speaker lineup that includes Pam Tebow, Sally Clarkson, Ken Ham, Voddie Baucham, Heidi St. John and many others, we know your family will find many sessions that will be exactly what you need for this time.
