In 1984 the phrase “Where’s the beef?” made advertising history when actress Clara Peller asked Wendy’s competitors why their bun was so big yet their hamburger patty so small. The slogan went viral before there was such a thing as going viral. Walter Mondale even employed this phrase effectively as he sparred with contender Gary Hart in the Democratic primary of that same year.

Mid-June is that time of the year when many parents hit an emotional lull. The ICHE annual convention is over. All the great information is still being digested as MP3’s begin to arrive. The school year—for most—is over. For homeschooling dads and moms, the respite—while being welcomed—is a bit anti-climatic. Everything has been moving with purpose and schedule. Now, the opportunity to take a deep breath seems so…so...unusual. We feel like we should be doing something, but what?

Inspirational speaking. Heart-felt worship. The joy of repentance. Tears, resulting from a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit. Picnics under the shade trees. Casual conversations filled with laughter and learning. Emails exchanged. Life-long friendships initiated. Generations soon to be changed by the grace of God. Simply put, it was another successful ICHE Annual Convention.

As a homeschool parent are you feeling burned out or feel like only holding on by a thread? Then it is obvious that you were not at the ICHE convention. But do not fear, if you were not able to make it to the convention or if you were at the convention and we're so amazingly blessed, as I was, then be sure to get the MP3 download of individual sessions or the entire convention.

PROPINQUITY: from the Latin root PROPINQUITOUS meaning nearness; nearness in place or time; proximity; kinship (as in nearness of blood)

We devote time and energy to the instruction of our children.  We have decided to do that.  That is why we come to the ICHE Convention; to get mutual encouragement.  We rub shoulders, we discuss, we laugh, cry, pray.  For three days we have propinquity with one another.  And we are blessed in this.

What Makes Your Child Tick?

Do you ever wonder why your child acts and reacts the way he does? Nurture the unique gifts God has place in your children by understanding personality types , love languages and spiritual giftings.
