Review by Anne Marie Dole:

My husband teaches English in a public school and I homeschool our children.  After attending the VHE convention in Modesto, both of us felt recharged for the upcoming school year. We enjoyed listening to Andrew Pudewa of IEW whose insights apply to all educators, K-12. Additionally Sonya Shafer of Simply Charlotte Mason is wonderful. We enjoyed perusing the exhibition hall with a couple book vendors selling little gems of used “living and twaddle-free” books. Overall it's a great resource for dads and moms.

Review by Christine Hall:

I attended the Modesto convention for the first time in 2018 and I highly recommend it. I had completely underestimated the value of what the speakers there would have to say. Though it had not been my intension, I ended up sitting in lectures all day, and got so much out of it. Though I have homeschooled already for 18 years, I left there feeling both inspired and equipped to be a better teacher this year, and with a resolve to give more of myself to my children in the remaining time that I have as a home educator for my youngest children. This would be a wonderful meeting point for Orthodox home educators from all over Central California.
