Refreshing the Heart for Mothers – June 14th

Audrey Broggi will be teaching Refreshing the Heart for Mothers with a special application for moms who have taken on the task of homeschooling. refreshing a mothers heart

Her goal is to encourage the hearts of moms who are in the thick of some of the busiest years of their lives. Loving, disciplining, teaching, feeding, cleaning and teaching their children.

It is for those days when you want to plop on the couch and sleep for days, times when you just want to finish a sentence and those times when you feel like you don’t know what in the world you are doing and wonder if it really matters anyway.

It is a time for being refreshed.

We will look to God to refresh our hearts. God’s grace is sufficient. He is there. He will help. He will strongly support you.

BOOK Blast Details

BOOK BlastThe Book Blast is a non-profit, volunteer used curriculum sale held at Community Bible Church in Beaufort, SC. You do not need to be a member of Community Bible Church or of CBCCA in order to be a Book Blast participant. It is free to participate, but you must register.  If you wish to sell, there is a $5 fee.

The Book Blast will run on Friday, June 13, from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.

How do I become a seller?

After you register for the conference you can click here to register as a seller.  You are not required to register to start entering your items online, but you will not be an official seller until you have registered for the Book Blast.

The last day for people to enter items into the Book Blast system is Tuesday, June 10th at midnight.

What can I sell at the Book Blast?

Our focus is on curriculum.  In addition, readers of all kinds, manipulatives, science stuff and educational supplemental materials.  Bibles, devotionals and educational aids are also welcome.

Please keep in mind this is not a yard sale, but a place to sell the kind of things YOU will be looking for to use in your own homeschool next year.

Our mission is to encourage all homeschoolers, but keep in mind we are a Christian homeschooling group.  We will not be able to sell items that conflict with our Christian values.  Please use discretion.

What are the selling instructions?

After you are registered as a seller, books and materials must be properly labeled.  We have two methods for labeling items:

Bar Coding Labeling

This system enables sellers to easily track sales.  It also streamlines the sale for buyers and sellers.  Added bonus?  You will get your money back much more quickly!

CHEC 2014 Canceled

*** Update – CHEC is still canceled… Joyce’s husband Bob passed away in the Fall and my husband is still recovering from his injuries. There may be a book blast, but we are waiting for that to be finalized. I will post when we know for sure.

Hello everyone -

I am sorry to say that we will be canceling CHEC 2014.
Both my husband and Joyce’s husband are seriously ill/injured and we will be devoting this year to their recovery/taking care of our children and families.
We are unsure whether the BOOK Blast will proceed, but I will update you as soon as possible.
I am hopeful that Lord willing, we will be able to pick CHEC back up in 2015, but it remains to be seen.
Thankful to all of you that have made CHEC a success.

September 6-7 -Mothering from the Heart Bible Study Marathon

From Audrey Broggi -

Coming September 6-7!

Mothering from the Heart Bible Study at CBC Beaufort Campus.

This study is my life message – it is my heart. I really, really believe as women get hold of these truths, our perspective changes and we see our homes, our husbands, and our children from God’s viewpoint. Single women come away with a renewed perspective – young women, older women – doesn’t matter life stage or spiritual maturity.

This is so foundational. And seriously, I believe the enemy wants to keep women blind and always learning but never coming to a knowledge of the truth.

Limited childcare will be available with advanced registration with the church office – 843-525-0089.
