A state leader's thoughts on the summit
Thank you very much for hosting the National Home School Leaders Summit last week. It was a real treat to be a part of such a worthwhile event. The speakers that you brought before us were interesting and informative. As always, the fellowship between leaders was wonderful and the hospitality was gracious.
A big thank you also for working so hard, all year long, to further the cause of homeschooling. It was encouraging to learn of your weekly meetings with the Department of Education and your involvement with the Values Action Team. Sometimes, all we hear are the negatives, and it was good to have an opportunity to hear that good things are happening in Washington, too.

Having coordinated home school conventions over the years, I have wondered if it was worth the time and expense invested in bringing speakers to Alaska. Fortunately, I have the opportunity to see the fruit of my effort in the changed lives around me.
Since we have returned home, you may wonder if the National Home School Leadership Summit will have an effect on Alaska. Our senators and representative were receptive to the need for home school freedom, and tax credit for education. I have already had opportunities to share what I have learned. Thank you for making it possible.

We really enjoyed the summit, and it was refreshing and helpful to rethink a lot of the issues facing homeschoolers today. It gave us a shot in the arm, so to speak.
The summit I attended two years ago, really renewed my vision for home schooling. Last week helped to keep my vision fixed, and reminded me of the Lord's doing in all of this.
