The 1st Annual NICHE Conference

This was the first conference held for the area of Northwest Indiana and it was a smashing success from beginning to end. Our family was blessed to be a part of what God is doing in homeschool families in the region.

Ray and Tami shared the story of their homeschooling journey.

Dan and Kathy Piekarski as faithful volunteers.

The man behind the madness, Herb Devine and son, Daniel---both spoke at workshops.

Here I am with a cuddly baby, Elizabeth, that I was able to kidnap from a mom so she could sit in one of the workshops.

Homeschoolers were challenged, inspired and encouraged.

The resource table manned by faithful sons.

The Devine and Piekarski girls were in charge of the refreshment table.

Herb exhorting men to be the spiritual leaders of their homes.

Steve was the second keynote speaker at the end of the day teaching the 'why' behind homeschooling.

We are all looking forward to and planning next years annual conference ---hope to see you there!
