What are attendees saying about Heart of the Matter online conferences?

  • I loved the fact that I did not have to leave my family (or "drag" them around with me) to attend. I also am looking forward to listening to recorded messages that I missed during the actual conference. This was a very unique and wonderful idea. I think you are "setting" the trend!
  • I really enjoyed getting to know the actual people who wrote the curriculums... and the honesty of veteran homeschoolers who had real experience behind them.
  • I appreciated the great Christian perspective. I could stay in my comfy clothes and multitask while I listened. Being able to interact with the speakers, typing in your questions to them - I thought this was brilliant.
  • This was my first on-line conference. I would do it again in a heartbeat! I enjoyed the question and answer sessions. Very informative. The handouts were very, very helpful. I have a great resource book now.



  • I've never been to anything like this. I actually won an invitation to this conference. I wouldn't have attended otherwise. Next year I will gladly pay for it. It is well worth it! Thank you!

  • What did I love about this conference? I could listen in the comfort of my own home; I get to download for free the sessions I missed; and it was very friendly and relaxing!
  • I've never attended an online conference. I enjoyed having "the comforts of home", and access to the vast knowledge and experience of the speakers. I could sense the hearts of the women participating.
  • This was my first conference, but I LOVED it. I thought the speakers were fantastic, godly women and am truly excited about what I have learned. I learned so much. It was well worth the price I paid and more! I really look forward to implementing the things I have learned. I highly recommend the HOTM conference to any homeschool parent, and I look forward to attending next years as well!! God bless everyone involved and thank you so much for all of your hard work!!



  • All the sessions were from a Christian worldview, the freebies were FANTASTIC, it was also very friendly and everyone was very helpful when there were problems.
  • I have only participated in small events (like an hour long webinar) so this was a new experience for me. I enjoyed it immensely and thought that it was a terrific value. I can hardly wait for the downloads so that I can be drawing from that info well into the school year.
  • I am so impressed with this conference! Inspiring stuff... very professionally done!!
  • This was the first online conference I've ever participated in (and I think it was a great idea!). Also, I have never been able to attend a "real" homeschool conference, as I live in a rural area far from the "real" world where all of those nice conferences are held. So I was delighted when I discovered your website and plans to hold an online conference for homeschoolers. As co-leader of the homeschool support group in our area, I quickly notified the 35 families on our email list, plus homeschooling friends all over the state! I was so excited that moms like me could benefit from this technology that lets us get instruction, inspiration and encouragement without leaving our homes, and Dad taking off work, and spending lots of money on gas and motels and food and conference fees, and having to find someone to take care of the children and the animals---all the reasons why we've never gone to a conference!!! Thank you so much!



  • I LOVE that I could do this from home, no travel or food expense in this tight economy, but I still got all the benefit of knowledge from the speakers! SO GREAT !!!!
  • I loved the fact that I could attend this conference from New Zealand. It was great to be able to chat with others.
  • I loved being able to participate without leaving my home, I didn't have to find a sitter, I could search online for the items that were mentioned during the talks. IT WAS GREAT!
  • Sessions were not dragged on forever…the freebies were available to all whether we were able to attend live or not…everyone had a chance at the door prizes versus playing games while the speaker is speaking and you end up not paying attention to the speaker cause you have to watch your screen for door prize games flying by…and lastly, from the ones I was able to attend, it seemed the HOTM staff stayed out of the Q&A session, allowing the speaker to take care of answering their area of expertise!



  • The conference "goody bag" freebies were awesome!!
  • The speakers were really good. Wasn't sure how I was going to like not being able to see them, but was surprised it wasn't an issue for me. Thought the texting was very helpful and insightful and appreciated the speakers that did provide handouts to download. I felt much more connected and even like the seminar was more personal...kinda strange since the technology made it impersonal. Just made to feel like you really knew the speaker like a friend.
  • I just want to say thanks again to everyone involved for all of your hard work in hosting this conference. I'm sure it was a blessing to many moms. I have already been able to pass on websites I got here to moms I know who have children with learning problems. Those resources make the price of the conference worthwhile alone! And I hope to share many of the ideas, as well as the information and inspiration I gained with the moms in my support group. God bless you all!
  • I was very impressed and blessed by the conference, I have been to many and it was still so good, so worth spending the time to listen to them! It was nice to be able to be at home so that I didn't have to leave my children for long periods of time and yet still get to do something so worthwhile. I am looking forward to listening to the ones I had to miss! Thank you again!



  • Just wanted to tell ya how much I enjoyed the conference today. After 15 years of homeschooling I am still learning stuff!!! I am still re-reading the big sticky-note where I wrote, "Clutter is a pile of unmade decisions!" Man is that profoundly simple or what?! I'm so psyched about the next conference! You guys have done such a great job!
  • First of all, I want to thank you for all of the time you have given to put things together for us this week! It has been a lovely time so far. The speakers have been wonderful so far, and I have enjoyed the topics. Even the sessions that I didn't think were particularly applicable to our homeschool (from reading the titles and descriptions) have been filled with information and encouragement. This has impressed me and delighted me! I have also been blessed by the fact that the ladies I have heard have shared about their love for the Father. What a joy!
  • May I just say that I feel SO privileged to be able to attend a homeschool conference all the way from PERU! I always enjoy hearing from other real life homeschoolers... Somehow just hearing another mom's experience or listening to different speakers expose their curriculums, just gives me the necessary kick in the pants to keep on. What an encouragement it always is to get a refresher at a conference.
  • Thank you so much for all your efforts putting this together!! You’ve helped a single working mom get motivated for another year!
  • This is such an amazing resource, and SO MUCH more conducive to really absorbing information as opposed to attending a ’skin’ conference! I learned so much and can’t WAIT for next year. IT WAS AWESOME! Thank you EVERYBODY!!!!!
