As the children grow older and then marry, we realize that our days of holding Maxwell family conferences are limited. It takes a lot of manpower to put on a family conference, and we don’t presume that our children will always be available to travel and help. Also, there is the issue of maintaining the bus and how long that is available to us is not a given. We aren’t at the point of not traveling yet, it may be years in the future, but this is a good time to mention we likely won’t be hosting them for years and years.
We have held so many conferences over the last ten years, and we have photos on our digital picture frame reminding us of the cities where we have been and the people we have met. All of that is to say that we really don’t know when our last season of travel will be. So I want to share that if you have wanted to host a Maxwell family conference, weekend or single evening, you ought to consider it soon. We are heading east this fall, and the weekends are just about scheduled, but there are a lot of single evenings available.
We don’t charge anything to come, and in return we ask that you find a facility that will allow the conference to be held and publicize by email to the homeschool groups in your area. We have an information e-mail we send out when anyone inquires that goes into those details.
If the Lord has enabled us to cover all of the cities where there is interest, then Amen! If not, I would encourage you to contact us. We love being home, but if the Lord has hearts for us to speak to on the road, then that is our desire.
