This year, our featured speakers is Andrew Pudewa of the Institute for Excellence in Writing. Other speakers include: Rev. Robert T. McDermott, Linda Bromeier, Kathy Harkins, Cynthia Haehnel, Lori and Thomas Cobb, and David and Kendel Williams.
We’ve got a great schedule lined up. Friday evening is geared toward high school students and Saturday is a full day of great speakers for homeschooling parents.
