Cherry Hill, NJ

Greetings from New Jersey! The last few days we enjoyed the Alliance of Christian Home Education Leadership conference at the Sandy Cove Conference Center near Baltimore, MD. We spent many hours in sessions discussing many issues that homeschool leaders find very practical: conference speakers, conference problems, board structure, charter schools, websites and technology, support group networking, convention planning, publications, and town hall meetings that covered a variety of philosophical issues... then, of course, there were the fun evening sessions full of skits, special music, "state spotlights" and more. Not to be forgotten are the times of prayer and singing, the devotional times, the meal time conversations, and the individual relationships that, despite our differences, are built by a common vision, similar experiences, and unique challenges faced as we walk the road of leadership together. Thanks so much to the ACHEL board for their work to annually arrange and host this conference.

Now, for the next few days, we are at the HSLDA national leadership conference in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. As Dad and Mom are the only ones of us attending the conference, the Erber kiddos will be "hanging out," catching up on lost sleep, doing laundry, and also taking care of some last minute shopping and preparation for next week's Faith & Freedom Tour.
