October PEACH Meeting: Service Opportunity Fair

Please spread the word about our October 11th PEACH Meeting at Arrowbrook Baptist Church. We have asked charitable and nonprofit agencies from our area to come to PEACH and present the work that they do in our communities, and explain how we can help.
During the first hour of the meeting, we will have speakers and presentations from:

  • Operation Christmas Child
  • Miami Valley Women’s Center
  • Dayton Gospel Mission/Camp Jabez
  • Greene County Commission on Aging

We will then dismiss and meet in the outbuilding behind the church for some fellowship and Q&A with even more representatives from:

  • 4Paws for Ability
  • 4H International Student Exchange
  • Hannah’s Treasure Chest

We may add to that list as others confirm their availability.

Homeschoolers are sometimes stereotyped as being withdrawn from society and uninvolved in their communities, but we know that many homeschoolers are active volunteers, or are seeking ways to be involved through their churches and groups such as those who will be sending representatives to this PEACH Meeting.

Whether you have one child or several, teens or little ones, there is something each of us can do to help those who are disabled or in need of physical, financial, or spiritual help. If you are looking for ways to serve the community as a family, or have a high school student looking for service projects, this meeting will bring many of these opportunities to you.

Feel free to invite anyone who might be interested- all PEACH meetings are FREE and open to the public!

What: PEACH Meeting: Service Opportunity Fair
Who: PEACH – Parents Educating at Christian Homes, Inc.
When: Thu October 11, 2012, 7-9 pm EDT (doors open at 6:45pm)
Where: Arrowbrook Baptist Church
1124 Upper Bellbrook Road Xenia, OH 45385

Teaching them to “Hold that Thought”

I believe that God has a great sense of humor, as He gave me my most energetic, challenging, “master-of-disaster”, last-born child when I was nearly too old to run and catch her. Sometimes the hustle and bustle of life and homeschooling prevents me from seeing the joy that my 8 year old Abigail Joy brings to our lives.

As a relative “newbie” to homeschooling, I love when I get an occasional email from “Sizzle Life” that make me smile, and remind me of the special gift God gave me with my “sizzler”.

I first heard Carol Barnier at a Convention a few years ago. Her first question “Who has a child who falls off their chair EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. ?” was spot on my life. I’ve since followed her witty writing style and inspiring advice through her books at the Library and on her blog: http://sizzlebopblog.wordpress.com/

Her latest email/blog post had some great ideas on teaching your child to “Hold That Thought” and wanted to pass on to you. I hope to try a few of them with my live-wire.
