Friday morning found John, Joseph, and Jesse helping vendors in the vendor hall; we were already set up, but many vendors still needed to prepare their booths. What were the boys doing?! Everything fromÂ helping drivers with limited reverse operational experience with trailers pull into the hall with no mishaps to unloading boxes and other tasks. The guys really enjoyed their time!
By 2 p.m., everything was in order and ready for the homeschool families to peruse the vendor hall.
The Lord used each of Dad and Mom’s sessions to speak to parents. Often, we children had great conversations with parents at our book tables as they asked us questions about how we were raised.
Families gained new vision as they heard how to raise sons who could provide for their families, how it was possible to be a family team, how the mom could effectively homeschool multiple children, how to have daily, family Bible time, and how they could have children who would love and serve the Lord Jesus.
A neat “side bonus” this convention offered was free admission to parents of preschoolers (the oldest had to be 5 or less), and it was great seeing many young families contemplating homeschooling, while soaking in the information.
The ENOCH convention staff was very gracious and hospitable to us, providing multiple meals for the family throughout the weekend.
It was a joy to be able to share with the homeschoolers of New Jersey.
