Have you ever wondered who works to put on Paideia Northwest events, or where the idea came from in the first place? Amy Sloan from Homeschool Conversations with Humility and Doxology interviewed Paideia Northwest founder Melissa Cummings in 2021, and you can watch the vlog version right here if you want to know more about the background behind your favorite annual event.
We are delighted to sponsor Andrew Pudewa coming to Spokane in November 2019 to bring two days of IEW workshops to families in our NW region! Last summer, I traveled to the opposite corner of our state to take two of my children to IEW workshops… they enjoyed them so much, they basically begged me to find a way to bring Andrew Pudewa to our own city of Spokane. Well, here you have it!
Please don’t make the same mistake I have made in the past… assuming that registration won’t fill up right away… because it just might. There are limited seats for each workshop, and if you want to participate, please don’t delay.
As we countdown the last few days before Paideia Northwest opens conference registration for Courage for the Daily (BIG announcement coming on that shortly!!), please join us in welcoming our wonderful lineup of speakers!!

Paideia Northwest presents a one day conference event to encourage Christian (home) educating moms right here in the Pacific Northwest.
Let’s pursue community, create camaraderie, and seek to encourage one another in the journey of educating our kids for Christ, through shaping their intellect, sharpening their skills, covering them with grace, and pouring wisdom over & into them.
This is big work, mamas!
You needn’t do it alone.
This is your opportunity to connect with other likeminded mamas in the Pacific Northwest walking similar paths, longing for bridges and companionship along the way.
Stay tuned for the real details!
You don’t want to miss this.
