It’s Someone’s Anniversary!

 photo 9e554d8f-e8ce-49c4-aac3-ea22f9f230e3.jpg Its been pretty busy around here. I guess it comes with the territory of having 3 tiny ones. The holidays are upon us, and here, so are many birthdays as well. So posts have slowed down a little. I’ll be reblogging and try to fit in some posts along the way.

Today, I’m going to take a moment and write about a great organization.

This month is Gifted Homeschoolers Forum’s, 10th anniversary. I have been following GHF for the past 2 yrs. Over this time, I have fallen in love with their (all volunteer) organization. They have brought a sense of community and support to me and my family. From the phenomenal resources found on their website to their thought provoking guest bloggers and their FB posts.

According to them, they started their organization in 2004 with a group of parents around a kitchen table.  This once small organization has now transformed into a community with global outreach. #GTchat recently interviewed GHF of their journey from the beginning to where they are now, and what they hope to accomplish for the future. If you’d like to read the transcript of their chat, click here.

When I started my blog, I thought about joining their blogging community and when I joined, I found their staff to be just as phenomenal. They really are a great professional network of support and they radiate a positive uplifting environment. I couldn’t be more honored to be able to participate and contribute blog posts for this great organization.

This month, Jade Ann Rivera, ambassador of GHF and a gifted family coach, has a great upcoming Community Call on Holiday Stress and the Gifted Family. (Nov 21st @ 4pm PST, 6pm CST, you can get your tickets here) Screen Shot 2014-11-12 at 1.47.16 PM(Image source, GHF)

They also have a plethora of resources from Twice exceptional to homeschooling and community support available on their website. Aside from this, they also offer online classes  that meet the needs of gifted students and is also, 2e friendly. Their 2015 registration is open! Click here to check it out!

If you enjoy their organization, you might want to check out becoming a member. When you become a member of GHF, you gain access to many of their great members only resources. By becoming a member, you are also supporting this great organization by assisting them to continue their mission and outreach for gifted and 2e families/individuals. According to their website, Gifted Homeschoolers Forum is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that works to educate and advocate for gifted and 2e families, regardless of educational choice. Membership includes discounts on some of their resources, events and affiliate services, depending on the membership selected.

If you don’t want to join as a member, but you’d still like to support GHF, visit their support page to see the many ways you can.

We know we will be personally relying on them for many more years to come. I’m hoping that they will continue to carry us through adolescence and beyond.

Happy Anniversary Gifted Homeschoolers Forum!
Hoping for many more years to come!
