Rejuvenation Event for Homeschooling Moms 2/28


Calling homeschooling moms!

“The coming years will be filled with challenge and adversity, but those who decide to contend with the current of the culture will have a powerful impact on their world. Our children’s generation is labeled the “Pampered Generation” or the “Me Generation” by those who say that they have big visions with no desire to act. But we say that your children will be “The NEXT Greatest Generation.” This session is for those who believe in a decisive vision for their children.”

Mark your calendars for the 3rd Annual Rejuvenation Event on Saturday, February 28th at Flint First Wesleyan Church.

Come for a time of relaxation, inspiration, and a breath of fresh air to get you through the “final push” of your homeschooling year.

Shop the Vendor Hall for homeschool-related items.
