Greetings to Expo Attendees, Volunteers, Speakers and Exhibitors!
now that the board has had a chance to slow down and take a deep breath, we want to thank you so much for your support of
this year's Greater St. Louis Area Home Educators Expo. As far as we can tell, it was a huge
success and we give all the glory to God and to you, His people!!!
Everything during those three
days went relatively smoothly, considering we had a new location and everything was just "bigger". We
have gotten glowing reports and even some testimonies of where God really ministered to hurting families in a big way.
That blesses us so much because one of our main goals in this Expo was to help families be better homeschoolers
in the way that God has called them to be and not in the way that someone else thinks they should homeschool. Each of
us is unique, each family is unique and each homeschool will be unique--each being led by the Holy Spirit within them
and not the teachings of man.
