Bring a yummy treat to share and we’ll provide the hot cocoa.
hot-cocoa-xlgLet’s take some time to refresh together as we enjoy time to fellowship, a fun ice breaker, announcements, a short devotional, open discussion and, of course, door prizes.

Open discussion topic: REST for homeschool moms. It’s a necessity for the marathon of homeschooling, but sometimes hard to come by. What does it look like for you and how do you find (or make) time for it? Let’s share what works for each of us and get some new ideas as we learn from and encourage each other.Don’t forget:
*Blessings table will be available if you have items you’d like to bless another SELAH family with.
*Veteran homeschool moms will be available at 6:40 for any new homeschool moms who have questions or just need encouragement.

See you there!

December Mom 2 Mom

Monday, December 1st at 7:00pm

Join us for some COZY fellowship and a Secret Santa gift exchange!

It’s COLD outside.  What comes to mind when you think of keeping WARM?  Wrap that up and bring it for the gift exchange.  Socks, hot chocolate, a scarf – be creative.  Strict $5 limit. 

We’ll have time to fellowship, a short devotional, open discussion and, of course, the gift exchange. 

Open discussion topic for December:  How do you balance it “all” during the holidays?  We know that “doing it all” is really a myth – but how do you balance the holidays with homeschooling?  Do you take off school, have a lighter load, do a special unit study, etc?  Let’s share what works in our families and continue learning from each other.  There are so many good ideas among this amazing group of ladies! 

There will be a Blessings table available, if you have items you’d like to bless another family with. 

We will also have veteran homeschool moms available at 6:40 for any new homeschooling moms that need encouragement, want to ask questions or get ideas.

November Mom 2 Mom

Monday, November 3 at 7:00pm
(See email for location)
Bring a snack to share and join us for a time of refreshing with fellow homeschool moms! 
Our open discussion topic will be THANKFULNESS.  Piggy-backing on our Octoberdiscussion about character, what tips and tricks, resources and ideas do you have to instill the character quality of thankfulness in your children (and in yourself)? 
We also want you to share HOLIDAY TRADITIONS your family enjoys. By discussing this in early November, we’ll have plenty of time to implement some new traditions in our families for the upcoming holidays. 
Are you new to homeschooling and have questions, concerns or frustrations about homeschooling?  Come to Mom2Mom early (6:30-6:40) and we’ll have some experienced homeschool moms available to answer questions or just provide encouragement.

October Mom 2 Mom

Our October Mom2Mom meeting will be all about … you guessed it … CHOCOLATE! 
Bring your sweet tooth and a favorite chocolate snack to share. Chocolate dipped or drizzled or covered anything; brownies, cookies, candy – you get the idea. We’ll enjoy our decadent desserts and plenty of time for fellowship, as well as announcements and a devotion. Of course, there will be {chocolate} door prizes, too. 

There will also be a time for open discussion. Our topic for October is Character. How do you teach/instill character in your children & teens? As homeschoolers, we are in a unique position to influence character in ways we might not otherwise be able to. Are you purposeful in this, and if so, how? We’ll learn from and encourage each other as we talk about our strengths and struggles as they relate to this topic. 

There will be a “Blessings table” available. If you have items you’d like to “bless” other SELAH members with, please bring them.
