First ever homeschool conference, and it was absolutely amazing, loved the vender fair and speakers, came back feeling like not only a better homeschooler but a more inspired parent, wife and person in general. ~Christine


Thank you for putting on the conference! It was my first time there, and I look forward to participating for years to come! ~Jaimie


This is my first year attending the conference. It has been so encouraging, and I have so many new ideas to consider to make the homeschool experience what I want it to be for my family. ~Tracie


This is a highlight of my year and helps me just rest/be encouraged. ~Jessica


My husband and I have rarely missed a conference in the 23 years we’ve been homeschooling. It is a major highlight of our year in so many different ways. We feel beyond blessed by the Lord to have the privilege to homeschool and to be doing so in NC! NCHE-you are the best!!


Some of my favorite moments were connecting with other homeschool moms as we shared snacks waiting for a conference to start, or walking together to the bathroom, or talking together after a particularly encouraging workshop. I was reminded that these are “my people,” and that this is my calling in this season. What a breath of fresh air! Blessed to be able to attend this year – looking forward to the future! ~Mary


Thank you, thank you, thank you for a WONDERFUL experience every year! My absolute favorite professional thing to do is attend NCHE conference!! ~Caroline


This was an amazing trip. The speakers and being able to chat with them, the organization of the whole convention. If there were problems, they were not fretted over for the public to see. Thank you (all) for this opportunity to happen for everyone.  ~Karen


Thank you for keeping the conference fee itself affordable!  ~Caroline


I depend on the conference to show me something new each year, to get me thinking about something I haven’t thought about, or just to find a pearl or two. I really appreciate the wisdom and guidance of those who have finished the journey and those who have perspectives to share at each stage of the journey.  ~Barbara


This conference is such a blessing to me and my family.  ~Lynette


My daughter and I really appreciate the college fair. She was able to talk to several schools that she had not considered.  ~Melissa


I look forward to the conference each year. It’s just the encouragement I need to prepare for another school year!  ~Christy
