What's the big deal about Young Living

Meeting the Duggars

THSC Conference Summit Workers


Last weekend I manned a booth for The Homeschool Moms' Winter Summit at the Texas Home School Coalition Convention. I had a ball with all my Summit friends, and we talked to SO MANY women who nodded in agreement when we told them there was a real need in the homeschool community for a ministry dedicated to encouraging and refreshing homeschool moms so they could go home and do the same for their families.

Those moms were so excited to hear that the Homeschool Moms' Winter Summit is exactly that! We are just a bunch of homeschool moms who want to help each other finish well the race we have started. Find out more about how and where you can attend The Homeschool Moms' Winter Summit here.

While I was there, I was fan girling over the fact that the Duggars were just walking around chatting with people just like the rest of us homeschoolers! They were so approachable and friendly.

So naturally I chatted it up with them whenever I got the chance. My kids wanted proof of this, of course, so I had to get some selfies, right? It was for the children.

Meeting Michelle Duggar


And here I am with Michelle. She is just so nice! She gave a talk with Jim Bob and they were both very honest and encouraging about how they deal with behavior issues that come up with their children, how they deal with negative comments about family size, and so much more.

It was such a fun weekend!

    Several years ago, they were at the Great Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati. We saw them walking around near the Convention Center in Cincy and just a wee bit at the Convention (except for during Michelle’s scheduled talk, where we saw them a lot). And, YES, I had a front row seat! I’m not stupid. I attended the session before Michelle’s so that I wouldn’t have to fight the crowd to be there. :)

    Now, I go to the Teach Them Diligently convention and I see Josh, Anna, and family. Josh has a keynote in Sandusky – YES, I am going – so I will see them again. I am a little bit shy sometimes, so I haven’t gone all crazy stalker fan girl on any of them… YET.
