The last 10 days have been so jam packed and filled with activity, joy and sadness. Today is an off day, and then we have a few more days of work.. and we will return to our regularly scheduled programming on Monday July 25th.
The first few days of our hiatus the family and I worked at our church during our annual Spiritual Leadership Conference. It is something that we do every year to minister to not only our congregation, but to Pastor's and Missionaries from around the world. It was such a joy to work the administration table, and check in some of these amazing delegates, and get to know them better! Each year it amazes me how we can unite from all around the world, in one accord to worship our Lord! God is good! During this conference we also honored our Pastor for his 25 years of service at our church! Thank you pastor for your biblical testimony and for modeling for us exactly what you preach! We are thankful you and your beautiful family.
The next mission on our agenda was the CHEA Homeschool Convention in Pasadena, California. I worked the Growing Healthy Homes booth! Have you seen their Nutrition Curriculum? If not, you need to click on the link and check it out! It is an amazing curriculum that brings together, the human body and nutrition in a way I have never seen done, in any other curriculum. (ps... after I reviewed this book for the TOS Crew, I started working for them as a distributor, that is how much I loved their book!) I had a great time, I love spending the weekend talking about homeschooling and health, with homeschoolers!
We came back from that event, and held health workshops around the So. California area. We met a lot of new people, and reunited with some old friends, and enjoyed a great time of learning!
However, in the midst of all this, our family suffered a loss... our dear sweet family friend, our Dalmatian, Dottie, passed away. She has been our faithful friend and companion for 12 1/2 years. It seems so strange to not have her here with us, any longer. I think it has helped us all.. that we have been so busy, it has helped to keep our mind of missing her!
We have one more convention this weekend! If you are in the So. California area, there will be a Growing Healthy Homes Booth at the CHN Family Expo in Ontario. Stop by the booth and say hello! We would love to meet you!
Monday, we will return to our regular schedule and we look forward to getting back on track with you. Praying that each of you have had a wonderful summer! See on Monday!
