Children’s Lit, Hot Chocolate, & Chelsea Rowe!
The February FEFC meeting is all about encouraging one another with inspiring children’s literature to use in our homeschooling.
HOW? Which authors have brought your history, science, math or reading to LIFE?
Bring 2 or 3 of your favorite books / authors to share with the rest of us.
WHY? It’s February.
We. Need. Inspiration. (!)
Shakespeare in Shorts author & FEFC member Chelsea Rowe will kick the evening off with some encouragement regarding using children’s lit in our homeschooling & then we’ll take some time to share with each other some of our faves whilst sipping on yummy hot chocolate.
Maybe you’ll meet a new author who will add some warmth to your winter homeschooling season! Or maybe you’ll bless another mama with a fresh, new-to-her author who’ll breathe some life into her (& her family’s) winter! Come, bring a friend – be a blessing & be blessed!

FEFC supports the work of the local church and encourages families to be active and accountable in a body of believers. It is our intent and design that this group be neither a replacement for nor a hindrance to your own church commitment and involvement. For this reason, we stay single-minded in our function to serve as a tool for your homeschool, with our emphasis on providing meaningful educational and social experiences for you and your children. We strive to select activities that do not duplicate those which are generally considered to be the function of your local church.
The purpose of FEFC is to encourage member families to grow and thrive in their respective homeschool environments, and to facilitate their success by providing information and support services while upholding the biblical principles on which the association is founded.
According to the needs & interests of our families, activities include a wide range of categories (some constantly changing!) such as: Science Fair, Yearbook, Park Play, Speech & Debate Club, Sr. High Graduation, Craft & Bake Sale, Skate Day, Trail Life, American Heritage Girls, Support Group Meetings, Georgia Day Parade, TeenPact, Curriculum Connection Book Fair, Bowling, High School: Group Activities / Student Council / Spring Dance, Middle School Group Activities, Field Trips, Ice Skating, Workshops, Moms & Mentors (M&Ms), Kindergarten Graduation & more!
