Different Children Different NeedsIf you have more than one child, you know they are unique individuals!  Their different personalities can make parenting a challenge. How do you face this challenge in your family? Let’s learn from each other as we share the strengths and struggles this aspect of parenting brings.

Bring a snack to share and join us for our first Mom2Mom meeting of the new school year!  We will have time to fellowship, a devotion, an open discussion topic and, of course, door prizes.

Whether you have a dedicated room with chic vintage lockers, a kitchen table and re-purposed pie safe, or just a spot on the sofa and a bookcase, we need space for our homeschool.  Let’s share what we love about our spaces and what makes them work for our families. Plus, we all have them – various gadgets that make our homeschool day easier.  We want to know what you just can’t homeschool without.  This will be a fun time to pick up new tips for next year as we learn from one another.  If you’re new to homeschooling, this will be the perfect time to get some great ideas!
