Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received. 
The answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported.

The speakers were inspirational, the vendor hall was overwhelming, and I left with a confidence and enthusiasm for my new life as a homeschool mom.

The conferences were a little expensive and when I factored in gas and food it was more like a null. I also had to purchase recordings of the talks I really liked because they weren't part of the package. 

Things just got a little easier.  A Homeschool Moms Conference is coming to you, with expert speakers, a vendor hall and a swag bag. And you don't even have to leave your living room! It goes with you where ever you access the internet.
