I’m a ToG Booth Hostess!

I was just informed yesterday that I’ve been selected to represent Tapestry of Grace as the lead booth hostess at the Southeast Great Homeschool Convention.

I’m excited. I know I’ll be on my feet. I know it will be work. I know it will be a tiring endeavor. However, I truly love our curriculum and I’m excited to share it with others. Encouraging other homeschooling mothers is a passion of mine. Anyone who knows me knows I’m not a salesperson. However, when a product has blessed my life, I can’t help but share my enthusiasm. I wonder how many Bosch mixers, IEW products or Tapestry year plans I’ve “sold” (without commission:) over the years! So while I know my time as a booth hostess will be tiring, I am very much looking forward to it.

I also am delighted that Marcia and Scott Somerville will be at this conference as speakers. Marcia wrote this curriculum after coming close to quitting homeschooling. She’d been at it for ten years and felt pulled in too many directions (something that resonates with me as I am ending my 11th year and busier than ever with our children’s education.) The Lord led Marcia to write Tapestry of Grace for her own six children and for a co-op where she taught history. As she taught her classes, the plans she created developed into this rich, Classical curriculum. Now thousands of families, my own included, are blessed by her wonderful product. Marcia also is a gifted, encouraging speaker. Of all the conference speakers I’ve ever heard, she and Sally Clarkson are my favorites. Both of these mentors of mine possess a gift of encouragement. Every time I’ve heard Marcia, I’m not only inspired to better my teaching skills, but I’m encouraged; just encouraged – that I’m a child of God, a wife, and a mom to six wonderful children and that the Lord will equip me in every way. That I can work in her booth and represent her company is an honor.

If you are planning to be at the Southeast Great Homeschool Convention March 22nd-24th, please stop by the Tapestry of Grace booth. I’d love to see you and say hello!

If you’re in need of teaching inspiration or encouragement in general check out Marcia’s blog, Love the Journey. I’m on a blog fast right now, but hers is one I frequent, normally.
