The Northwest Catholic Family Education Conference, Nurturing Catholic Family Life, will be May 1-2, 2009 in Tukwila, WA (just south of Seattle).
Fr. Gerard Saguto, F.S.S.P. (who was ordained with one of my brother-in-laws and happened to be a fellow student at Christendom when I was there!) will be one of the speakers, giving a presentation on "Salt and Talent."
I can't wait to finally be able to meet Meredith, one of the very first Catholic bloggers/friends I met online!! =) She will be speaking as well, giving a presentation on "Nurturing Catholic Family Life by Living the Liturgical Year." Doesn't it sound wonderful?!
I am also looking forward to hearing Dr. Joan Cotter, author of Right Start Mathematics, speak about "How Children Learn Best — Keeping Brain Research in Mind" and "Why Mathematics Is Important for Our Children’s Futures". Math has been a challenge this year, so hopefully I will come how with some new tips that will help.
Other speakers include Fr. Jim Kelleher, S.O.L.T., Camille Pauley, Carrie Thienes, and more.
I'll be traveling to the conference with a friend of mine, and staying with another friend I haven't seen in forever! I can't wait!!! =) This year, I'll make sure not to leave any valuables in my car, since I learned my lesson last year!
If you'd like to attend, you can register online or by mail. They are offering a special discounted rate for the remainder of March in honor of St. Joseph, so be sure to register soon!
Will I be seeing any of you there??
