We are excited about this year's convention, which is being held at Bethany World Prayer Center, 13855 Plank Road in Baker, just north of Baton Rouge. Our keynote speakers include Zan & Joe Tyler, and Todd Wilson.
Here is the convention schedule.
Here is a message about convention from President of CHEF of LA, Roger & Jan Smith:
Zan & Joe Tyler
Zan Tyler is a delight to be around. She and her husband, Joe, are homeschool pioneers in South Carolina, where they were once threatened with jail for homeschooling. Zan is a true "southern belle" that will encourage and challenge parents to nurture their children to wisdom and godliness. You can sample her teaching here. See Zan with Joe here.
Todd Wilson, known as the Family Man, can show you how to lighten your load if you are overwhelmed with the task of home educating. He is a high-energy guy that loves to laugh, and believes that home discipleship should be fun. Todd is a former pastor who is committed to helping homeschool families to deny the common lies about homeschooling. Check out his book, Lies Homeschool Moms Believe, and other items at his website. Get to know Todd here.

CHEF of Louisiana
Christian Home Educators Fellowship of Louisiana (CHEF of LA) is a non-profit organization that is comprised of Christian homeschool support groups across Louisiana. We represent over 1200 families who are educating their children at home, and are members of support groups affiliated with our organization.
CHEF of LA serves the local support groups by providing training events, homeschool information materials, media support, and legislative representation, in keeping with our mission to “protect and promote homeschooling” in Louisiana.
Our volunteer staff is available to assist our member groups with issues they face, whether it be a matter of group organization or matters with the state or community. For example, we recently navigated an issue with the Department of Motor Vehicles regarding homeschool students applying for a driver’s license. Also, we recently testified in court for a family in a custody hearing over a family’s decision to homeschool.
Much of our work is behind the scenes, making the world of the current day homeschool family safe. We work to see that your membership fees are well invested in your future.
Because we are a volunteer organization, we welcome your participation in the work, and would love to put your skills and talents to work in accomplishing our mission. So please let us know how you can help. We are always looking for people with skills of organization, computers, graphic art, writing, editing, and relationship networking.
