Parents, grandparents and church leaders and anyone looking for wisdom, hope and fellowship, take note: The Illinois Christian Home Educators (ICHE) Family Conference is coming up fast! This year’s theme, "Stand Grounded in Christ," promises to challenge and equip attendees with Biblical truths to direct the children and young people entrusted to their care “in the way they should go.” This annual homeschool conference will be held at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais between May 19th to the 22nd.
Illinois parents, along with millions of other parents across the nation, were tossed into an at-home learning environment this past spring that the public school coined “Homeschooling.” The public schools were ill-equipped for this change-over, despite years of “e-learning days” where public school children learned how to use the software during snow days and other days off.
One of the unfortunate side effects of the coronavirus pandemic has been the cancellation of numerous conferences and other events. With the benefits of technology, many of those events have been able to take place online. The full experience may not be the same, but at least we don’t have to miss out completely!
