Free Ticket to UHSE!

Hi friends,

This is a fun giveaway! Cindy Rushton is allowing me to give away a free ticket to the UHSE (Ultimate Homeschool Expo). Have you been thinking about attending this online event - the largest of its kind for the homeschooling community? It is going to be very fun.

I feel privileged to be one of the 35 speakers and my session is on Wednesday (June 3rd) at 2:00pm CST on the topic of the 7 Essential Ingredients to Homeschooling Success. I hope that you will join me.

Here's what you will need to do in order to enter the drawing for the free ticket:

1. Visit this webpage - - and skim through the conference info.
2. Tell us what you think by leaving a comment here on the blog.
3. Include your email or blog address so that we can contact you if you win.

That's it! Enter the drawing quickly, because we'll draw our winner in time to be included in the entire week long event which starts at 10:00am CST on June 1st. So, we'll conduct our drawing at 9:30am so that you won't miss anything. Sound good?

Hope to see you online at the conference!

What do I think? I think it sounds WONderful! I'm very familiar with some of these folks and I respect them a great deal. Even as a veteran homeschooler, I know there is always more for me to learn - especially from the line up of speakers in this Expo!

I have to say, however, that the absolute BEST part of this whole concept is that you don't have to sign in "live" to reap the benefits of these seminars or to access the freebies and drawings. As a military wife stationed overseas, I frequently find myself "cut off" from my homeschooling friends when I most need support - I'm a day ahead and it makes me feel behind. Add in the fact that while there are homeschoolers on our island, but no conventions, and you can imagine how lonely I feel at times!

This is a great concept - many thanks to all the speakers for participating and best of luck to you all! And Terri - thanks for posting the contest - what a wonderful opportunity for the winner. :-)

I hope to win because I can't listen in next week, but it is nice that the discussions will be posted and available whenever it is convenient.

I have been looking forward to Cindy's UHSE this year. I missed out last year. I have been listening to some of the preview shows as my schedule allows. I am most excited about the kid's classes. I think it will be fun for my children to be able to have a class from someone other than me. I'd love to win as we don't have the funds to buy a ticket at this time.
Thanks for doing this Cindy & Terri.

This year is so full of exciting workshops. I can't believe how much Cindy has managed to cram into UHSE. I was blessed last year as a brand new homeschooler by Cindy's UHSE and this year is heading to even bigger blessings

I love it that the sessions are live but "saved" at the same time. It will be so great to be able to listen to EVERY session and not have to pick and choose - "Which will I go to and which ones will I have to miss?"

I was looking at the info on the Expo last week - drooling!!! I would love to be able to be a part of this this year. I missed last year's but heard rave reviews!

The best part is that I don't need to find a babysitter for my 5 dc! I can just listen in when the kids are in bed and the house is quiet. :)

Thanks for sharing this opportunity!

Wow! I can't believe how many seminars are offered. The ones that caught my eye are "Fitting in Fitness" (which we have a hard time doing) and "Teaching Science Out of the Box" (my 4th grader wants to study Chemistry next year and I'm not sure how I'm going to do that).
I love the idea of an online conference because we always have a hard time finding babysitters and the money to go to a traditional conference. So I would LOVE to win a ticket!

Wow, I'd heard of this before but thought you had to listen live, which could be difficult in a house full of kids. ;-) This looks awesome, I'm especially intrigued by the Life in the Fishbowl workshop and the virtual vendor hall. Too cool!

What a sweet give-away you two ladies have come up with!!! I was able to join in the UHSE last year and it blessed my socks off! I've been homeschooling for 6 years now (unless you count from birth then it's been 12 years!) and I am still learning so much! I feel like I can always find new ways to improve my teaching methods. Plus the spiritual encouragement during the UHSE for us as parents is amazing!
Thanks agian for the chance to participate in this wonderful giveaway! I'd love to join you gals again this year!!!

Cindy Rushton puts together THE best workshops and conferences. I have most of her conferences saved to my computer and still go back and listen to them all the time. I LOVE how everything is so organized and saved on a website that you have access to long after the conference is over. Her conferences are always new and refreshing, packed full of great information and encouragement! I thoroughly enjoy all the great speakers! Thanks again!

This is such a great opportunity for busy moms. Since you can take a break whenever you need one and come back to hear some more, there is no chance of information overload. You can 'fuel up' when you are ready or feel the need for some encouragement.

I think the seminars listed truly offer "something for everyone". The seminars will help the new homeschooler get off to a fantastic start and the veteran homeschooler to recharge their batteries!

The last year has been truly rough for us and my batteries could surely use a recharge.

I love Cindy's UHSE! That's what I think and I don't think I could ever tell enough people. Cindy herself inspires and enlightens me; through the Holy Spirit, she always manages to lift me up and offer hope when all I see is chaos. The speakers who also speak at the UHSE have helped me so much as well in the past. I listen to last year's UHSE while I'm on the treadmill in the morning and I am absolutely inspired to begin the day with my children. Because we are not able to purchase (even for the awesome sale amount) the UHSE this year, and our internet connection is so wiggy that I can't count on listening in live, I was really thinking I would miss out. But not if I win this contest!!! So, thank you Terri for offering that possibility.

I love the fact that I can get all of the workshops as MP3s, since I don't really have enough time in any one week to listen to all of the material offered in the workshops...I can listen and be edified while I clean the house, cook dinner, or on one of those many sleepless nights...and the goodie bag looks like like a lot of fun too! I would be SOOO pleased to win a membership for this year's convention!

I think this is wonderful. The nearest conference I could attend is a 3 day event - 3 hours away. With conference fees, motel, finding someone to take care of my youngest children - this is totally out of reach. At most I could attend only 15 workshops anyway. I would love to win this!

I was able to get in on the conference last year, after the fact, and am still listening to some of the conferences from that. With job losses and everything else, I had determined it wasn't going to happen this year. I'm totally impressed with the lineup -- my 2nd son would love for me to attend the homeschooling in the kitchen one. I think I need the one about putting first things first.

I'm excited for someone to be able to go for free. Thanks for doing this!

How exciting and ingenious to have an online conference?! Most of the reasons why I have never been to a home education conference was the added hassle and expense of travel!
The speakers and subjects offered are spot-on to help answer questions and fulfill the needs of a variety of home educators. This is truly a wonderful opportunity!

I attended the first ever UHSE and loved it! It offers such an amazingly broad range of topics and speakers...awesome! I also love the kids' section of the event this year!

With finances the way they are this year, we couldn't afford to attend a live homeschool conference or even buy a ticket for this. With 8 children, and 2 more coming this summer (ages 7 and 9 from Haiti), I can always use some good doses of encouragement and ideas to stick with homeschooling!

Thanks for offering this. I pray many will be blessed by this conference, including whoever wins a free ticket!

God bless,

I have been trying to find someone to split the friend subscription so that I can attend because our finances are incredibly limited right now (we just found out we have to replace our furnace and it's going to cost around $5000).

Hi! I was really excited to receive your e-mail, offering to give away a ticket to Cindy’s UHSE. You see, we are a military family, and on a VERY tight budget. So much so I couldn’t afford to purchase a ticket. I have perused the UHSE website for days, just wanting “to go”! We have just finished our first full school year and I am now searching for new curriculum, for both my present homeschooler (a DD), and possible other DD of high school age (that one has me excited and scared all at once—LOL!). Anyway, thank you Terri and Cindy for all that you do! :o)

What a wonderful line up of speakers and sessions! This is such a wonderful idea for us moms that have little ones and infants. It is always a challenge to actually HEAR the speakers when you attend a convention with little ones. Trying to juggle naps and lunch and diapers is always part of the trip. With the UHSE, you can do everything you need to do AND not miss a beat with your kids. I would LOVE to win this ticket. I could really use the encouragement.

Thank you for offering the giveaway,

I got to "attend" last year's UHSE and would love to win a ticket to this year's. There are so many excellent workshops. When you go to a physical conference you have to choose one workshop and miss all the others at the same time (or pay above and beyond the conference price to get recordings of the missed sessions); That's not the case here--not only can you be part of every session, you can listen to them over and over again.

The Expo and all the benefits sounds great. Too good to pass up. You did a great job of giving information. Thank you for including Mac (iMac) computers. Just one small question since I did not see the information -- Will there be any shipping fees involved? What I mean is: When I purchase something from a vendor in connection with the Expo, will they charge shipping fees during this time (for a period of 30 days, for example)?
My next and final question-- If I'm not expecting too much----- If I win the free ticket to the EXPO will I get my $39.95 back? I don't see how I could wait and hope for the free ticket, then not win and have to pay at the last minute. So, today I am just about to pay for one ticket to the EXPO.
Thank you.

Hi, I looked at the online site for Cindy's UHSE. 3-words-AWESOME/AWESOME/AWESOME. This would be a dream of mine. Presently my family consists of Me- a single Mom and two teens, 15 and 17. The 17 year old is a brain tumor survivor, 2006. He still has a rare syndrome P.F.S and a piece of tumor is growing=slowly. We have been home schooling since second grade. There has never been an opportunity for us to attend a curriculum convention. Lack of finances, time and travel means. I work full time, manage a home,feed the poor,mission at church and home school. With high school being so demanding, this would be a huge blessing. Both teens plan to go to college. One for nursing, and one for music therapy. Every year ,we have no clue, where the money is coming from for the curriculum!!! By faith, God provides. It was an online site like this that gave me the courage to accomplish this task. We will definitely email this online information to our Home school friends. P.S. My maiden name is: Terry Johnson. Thank you for encouraging all of us to continue to stay in the race!! Blessings from Terry, C.J., and Becca {[email protected]}.

Having attended "in person" conferences, I always felt overwhelmed because I couldn't go to Every Session or be in two sessions at once that I was really interested in. This way it's like having my cake and eating it too because the sessions are live as well as saved so I can "attend" at my leisure. Pure genius upon Mrs. Rushton's part!

I think the best part is that you can download the lectures to MP3's later so that you can listen at your own convenience. That's important to those of us with many little learners around!

Thanks for doing the give away, the conference looks like a great time.

I think that it looks awesome. I will be starting High School with my eldest this year, so, some of the topics are very timely for me. I think that it is essential to attend at least one convention, conference or expo each year. We all need some excitement to spur us on. This Ultimate Expo will definately do it!! Frances

Terri, I am intrigued with the idea of the UHSE. I have tried to make it a point to attend a hs conference every year as a way to regroup and be refreshed for another year of instructing my sons. The online approach is a novel idea in so many ways. I am working FT as we wait for God to lead us into ministry and it is nearly impossible to attend a conference outside the home because of the already overwhelming daily tendings I face. I really like that I wouldn't have to miss any classes I'd be interested in since they are ALL "taped". Plus, they are offering classes for the kids and one son will be home alone for a week; maybe there's a class he could join in on during that time and give him a change of pace for that week. We are winding down homeschooling with our oldest yet I still enjoy listening to veteran homeschoolers because I know there is something I can glean from others and implement here. Thanks for the offer and I look forward to being able to participate either way, win or not.

Blessings, Raquel Garner

There are also many workshops about getting the Bible into your life and your children's lives. I NEED that guidance. Unfortunatley this is NOT a year that I can afford to attend. I did attend last year and LOVED every moment! I spend hours listening into the live workshops then several more hours going thru all the stuff in the Grab Bag !! It was truly amazing !! I am entering this contest to hopefully win a ticket, so I can attend this year too but if not, I pray the experience touches someone elses life, the way last year's touched mine !

Look forward to hearing all the great talks planned and being able to listen to them over. Thanks for offering the free ticket! Denise

It sounds fabulous! I have never tried anything like this. How think of sitting in my own home and listening to all of these classes! No driving in traffic miles away and having to pay to park, then find a parking place, then walk forever to get in! This is great. I love homeschooling and could really use some new ideas! Money is tight so a free ticket this year to try this out would be AWESOME!!

This sounds like it is full of great information. I was able to go to our state convention this year, but I had a limited window of time. You should have seen me rushing through the vendors' displays! There was no time to hear any of the great speakers. I'd love to have the opportunity to listen to the pros.

Wow, I've heard of this before, but this year seems much bigger--all the kids' sessions and just gobs of speakers. Your title is intriguing. :-) I'd be delighted to be entered in the drawing. Thanks for giving me this opportunity!

I looked through the workshops. I have to say WOW!! Moms (and Dad's) workshop with kids workshop included. WOW! A wide variety of homeschooling ideals in this expo. A lot of names ring a bell with me. Whoever wins the ticket will be blessed tremendously. This is a gem! I love the fact that it is not narrowed down to one method but a variety. It doesn't matter if you are a Charlotte Mason, Elcectic, traditional, classical or a unit study educationalist....ALL will benefit!

Here is my email addy in case I win...

Blessing to the one that wins. God will choose!

This conference sounds great! I love the fact that you can listen any time.

This sounds so wonderful. Of course I'd love to listen to your talks Terri. As a relatively young home schooler, I'd love to know how to make this a succuessful venture. And as for the multi-level homeschooling talk you're giving, will you also address homeschooling with a baby, toddler and preschooler all home too? That will be my situation next year! I feel terrible doing this but I'm finding that with a lot of little ones in tow, the only way I can surviveis to use a lot of workbooks. Is this my preferred homeschool method? Of course not! But how do I meet the needs of my little ones (and the ever dilapidated looking house!) while embarking on more time intensive but fun and memorable hands on projects that my kids would love? I'm afraid I'm at a loss! So I'd appreciate any advice I could get!
As for the rest of the conference, I love the fact that it's so well rounded! You get a little bit of every subject here! I also love the fact that they have kids programs too. And the fact that you don't have to be present to hear it all. Again, with all the little kids, the best I can do is snippets of time here and there after they're all asleep. Over all, this sounds wonderful!

I love the concept. What a great idea! It sounds like a great bargain, too, because you get so much, but money is just too tight around here right now. So I hope I win a free ticket! The only thing I would wish for is more information about the grab bag. And one subject I'd love to see covered (maybe I just missed it) is how to organize all of your online resources. I'm overwhelmed already with all of the resources I have! Thanks for the opportunity!

The conference sounds wonderful. Living so far away means that we cannot attend any of the physical conferences, and the R/$ exchange rate is so high that it is prohibitive to buy a ticket. So here is holding thumbs that I get to attend this year.

I always love the Ultimate Homeschool Expo. Cindy always has such a great line up of speakers. The downloads and freebies are always awesome. This is something that anyone would love to win.

What a great idea! I would love to be able to listen to these talks slowly and to have time to think about each one and implement the ideas one at a time. I see myself listening to them while I go walking, which would give me extra motivation to get out and walk!

I see a lot of talks that would be helpful to me right now, such as learning styles, teaching literature, teaching multiple ages, and building a home library. These are just a few of the sessions that appeal to me. The classes for children sound helpful, too.

Thanks for the chance!

I think it sounds terrific. I like the versatility because there can be so many unexpected events happening in any day! There appears to be something for everyone. I'm glad Cindy thought of it - it's a blessing to us all.

I don't know if this will get in before the deadline, but I hope so. I was wanting to attend our state's homeschool convention this summer, but it doesn't look like it will work out for me. But the Homeschool Expo looks AWESOME! And the fact that I could "attend" anytime would be such a blessing. Thanks for the opportunity to win a ticket.

I can't wait for this year's expo! Even today, a year later, I am still listening and listening again to the speakers from last year. If I could buy the previous year's expo, I would! All that I learned has blessed our homeschool, our marriage, and our spiritual walk!

Thank you Cindy for putting this expo together!! You can't beat this for the price and content. I spent the weekend at a similarly priced convention and didn't have nearly a third of the speakers and vendors that Cindy has put together. Plus, she allows you to listen again as part of the entrance price. I would have had to pay an additional $53 to have an MP3 download of the other convention. Thank you again Cindy for helping moms make the most with what they have!!

I got to attend this conference last year and loved it, especially since it was online!! This year it sneaked up on me, and since I haven't gotten around to getting my ticket yet i thought i'd see about winning one. I am really interested in your talk Terri so i'll probably get a ticket tomorrow even if i don't win one. Thanks, Jodi Tuten [email protected]

Where, in this world, could you attend a conference with at least 35 high-calibre speakers who are experienced in their subjects, door prizes for everyone, and gifts galore for a mere US$40??And,as if that weren't enough, you have the rest of your life to re-live the excitement, as well as digest and action the highly valuable information!!
WOW!! UHSE09 is an investment for homeschooling families that will more than pay for itself in the years to come!!
Thanks for the opportunity to win!!

God's richest blessings,

What a wonderful way to feel the encouragement of a homeschool convention without having to find daycare and driving there and back. I missed our convention here in Montana due to it being five hours away for several days away from my children without daycare.. I would love the opportunity to be included in this.. thanks for offering a giveaway. I would LOVE to see more of these online conventions.. Many blessings

I attended the Ultimate Homeschool Expo last year and have SO enjoyed listening to the seminars all year. I haven't really even scratched the surface yet. I'd like to attend this year's expo especially for the kids classes!

I used to live in the San Jose, CA area where I was able to attend homeschool conventions - now we live in West Texas and are 6 - 10 hours from the nearest large homeschool conventions. This would be a great opportunity to "attend" a convention again! Hope I win!

I love Cindy. She has really helped me a lot in changing my life. I plan on trying to listen in as much as I can but would love a ticket as I missed the majority of the preview chats.
Thanks, Rodna

Oooh! So many of these topics speak to my heart - home management, high schoolers, encouragement, multi-age homeschooling. I need them all!!

Thank you for holding this drawing. I pray blessings on the recipient and the giver.

I think it is a fabulous idea! It makes a conference so accessible to people who are tight on money, or who live a long way from a IRL conference! Very Cool!
