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.

It would have been nice to have a little guidance from other moms who were trying to do the same thing.

That's why I think this Work at Home Track in the 2018 Homeschool Mom Conference is so important. Maybe working from home isn't something you think you can do, but maybe it is worth a try on even a part-time basis. The speakers in this group have decades of experience on how to work from home in 2018 and be successful.
