Notable Convention Speakers

Did you know that MassHOPE has been serving the Massachusetts Christian homeschool community for over 30 years? To help commemorate this milestone, we thought it would be timely and encouraging to highlight some of the amazing homeschool speakers that have been featured at our conventions over the years. From now through the end of 2020, we will be releasing, at no cost, convention keynote sessions and particularly helpful workshop sessions. Each session will be available for approximately two weeks, so check back often for new material.

Our next message in this series is Sonya Shafer’s “Laying Down the Rails” from our 2012 convention. We trust that this timely message will be a blessing and an encouragement to your family.
