It is over...

...and I missed it.

Although Hubby and I enjoyed our anniversary weekend, we missed the 2009 Annual Illinois Christian Home Educators Convention.

Sigh. Not only that, but since we have quite a few friends who did attend, we had to hear all the wonderful details when we got to church on Sunday. Seems as if there were resources, fellowship, and information galore, and we missed it.

I really had to fight back the green-eyed monster as a few of my friends raved about the workshop Stacey McDonald (author of Passionate Housewives Desperate For God) facilitated. From what I hear, she touched on many of the points made in her book. This is the same book I added to My 2009 Book List months ago, and have been anxious to read. The same book I've been "googling" just so I could get some "sneak peaks" into its content before I actually started reading. Yeah, that book. She was there talking about it, and I missed it...Woe is me.

Alas, I'm disappointed that I missed the convention; however, there is a silver lining in my dark cloud! After hearing all of exciting convention details, a friend who just finished Passionate Housewives Desperate For God, passed it along to me!

I'm half-way done and except for the bible, it may just be the best book I've ever read! You can rest assured that you'll be reading more about it here in the near future!;)


  1. So glad you had a great time with your husband. I would have loved to hear Stacey as well. The book is go good. I bought 2 copies and gave one to a friend. Finally after a few months she told me she liked it. It's a must read!
    Are you planning on going to the tea? I would love to go. Stacey is having one in Colorado which is s little closer to me.

  2. Passionate Housewives is well worth the time to read. Mrs. McDonald is joining some other ladies and myself for a round table discussion of the book chapter-by-chapter on

    The first post should be up this week!

  3. In the long run...You'll be glad you celebrated your Anniversary and another great conference will come, but never your fifth wedding anniversary again.

    God richly bless ya,

    Yes! I am planning on attending the Tea with my mom! Its about a 2.5 hour drive from where I live, but I think it will be worth it!

  6. LOL. I have to fight the green-eyed monster A LOT when I read your blogs!So many resources I just can't get!So you'll HAVE TO write about what you read-for my sake! :)
