Long or short, reflective or casual…your experience can be an encouragement and a blessing to another family. Here are just a few stories we’ve already received:
“As a homeschooling mom of both a special-needs child and typical children, your site has been such a help to me. Also, the convention was simply amazing for me. I was not overwhelmed but I felt like I fit right in. I left with a full and joyful heart, filled with excitement towards the future!” ~ Sarah
“Nineteen years ago, I attended my first HEAV convention. I can remember slipping into the back row of the auditorium where a graduation ceremony was taking place. Watching parents walk across the stage and place a diploma in their student’s hand, I was overwhelmed–yet empowered–by what these parents were doing. With that first introduction, I was hooked and became a regular attendee for years to come.
“About seven years ago, I felt a tug on my heart to offer something in return. Reading an article by Yvonne Bunn about serving with HEAV, I felt compelled to become a phone volunteer. Five years, and more than 1,000 phone calls later, I’ve been privileged to help answer questions from nervous, excited, new homeschoolers attending Yvonne’s “How-to-Begin Homeschooling” session.
“From sitting in the back row at an HEAV graduation to helping hundreds of others in their journey of homeschooling—I have seen how the Lord takes us where we are, equips us, empowers us, and then takes us to a place we would have never imagined.
“I am so thankful for the ministry of HEAV and all that it has provided for our family. God has raised up HEAV to help equip and empower the homeschooling community. May those of you who are just beginning to run the race, be faithful. The finish line is amazing!” ~ Terri
“We GREATLY appreciate the work of HEAV, and we feel blessed to live in a state with such an incredible homeschool organization. From the beginning of our homeschool journey, HEAV has contributed so much to our experience. We are so grateful.” ~ Davene
