Thank you so much for having a conference here in Florida. I left feeling much more rejuvinated. I spend so much time second-guessing myself throughout the year, but being around other Catholic homeschoolers really helps me to focus on what is important and always validates our decision to homeschool. I particularly enjoyed listening to Ginny Seuffert—reminding our family to stay devoted to our faith, and remember to also find the humor in our life as well.
While standing in line to register, I met a family that lives [in] my town (we came from over an hour away!). We realized that they live only a couple of miles from our house! We sometimes forget that we can look to different parishes for other homeschool families. It is always nice to find like-minded families—they can always offer extra support.

This was my 4th time attending an IHM Conference and once again I thoroughly enjoyed it! I really appreciate the fact that it is a CATHOLIC homeschool conference. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk with fellow homeschoolers and also to be able to look at curriculum.

I attended the IHM Conference in Jacksonville, FL. I really enjoyed it. The speakers were interesting. I was glad to see a Conference so early in the year as many of them happen after I have made my choices for the next school year. I had always wanted to attend a IHM Conference but I could never seem to make it to the one in Tampa. Thank you for coming to Jacksonville. I am looking forward to seeing you again next year.
Thank you SO very much for bringing the IHM Homeschooling Conference to Jacksonville! I have attended the Tampa conference the past 3 years and have always loved it. It is so nice to be able to get all the great benefits of these conferences so close to home. The IHM Conferences "feed" me as a homeschool mom, help keep me inspired and help me to remember "why" I'm doing such hard work that is not often recognized in society, but is still vitally important.
This year I brought my 14 year old son since we've been going through some rough times with school and "the teen years". We spent a wonderful day together and enjoyed listening to the speakers. He was inspired by all of them as well, especially Ginny Seuffert. Even though she advocates discipline and diligence--things that a teen doesn't often value--he was really touched and motivated to re-commit to his home school work. It helped him to realize that the schoolwork that he works so hard on everyday IS making a difference to him and in our world. Ginny's talk on the need for Catholic Homeschoolers to influence and help in our culture was particularly beautiful. Thank you so much and keep up the wonderful work.
