Plan to join us this January 17 through 19 (2013) for Mid-Winter Conference for Home Educators featuring very special keynote, Dr. David Aikman. David Aikman spent 23 years of his career as a journalist and bureau chief around the world with TIME Magazine. Dr. Aikman has interviewed most of the world leaders of our generation. He serves currently as writer in residence and history professor at Patrick Henry College in Virginia. Joining Dr. Aikman as keynotes are Diana Waring and Monte and Karey Swan. Featured speakers include Melinda Boring and James Muffett. Mid-Winter provides a retreat-like atmosphere in a conference designed for home educating parents. We feature keynote addresses for our entire event - no break out workshops - so parents have time to relax, listen, learn and be encouraged together.

My hope is that this listing will assist homeschoolers in Hudsonville, MI find conferences, conventions, book fairs, and graduations.  Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool event organizers create awareness about their homeschool graduation, conference, convention, or book fair.  May your efforts be for the glory of Christ, for the strengthening of His saints, and for the evangelism of the lost.
