Last summer, I had the opportunity to use and review a Monarch butterfly kit from Crowe’s Nest Media. It was through that review process that I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Kellie Crowe. Over the past year, we’ve corresponded from time to time; and, recently, she reached out to me to share about a special opportunity for Fathers & Sons – right here in my home state of Pennsylvania! I thought this sounded like a great opportunity for ALL DADS, so I wanted to share it with our Homeschool Mosaics audience . . .

The only way for a son to know his father’s voice is for him to spend time with him. And, I’m talking about one-on-one time together — talking, playing, laughing, discussing the Word.
Some dads attend the Father and Son Camp with a solid vision for biblical manhood and the importance of his role. For that father, the camp merely reinforces his vision.
