    Lighthouses of Florida

    Lighthouses of Florida

    Episode 84



    Florida’s lighthouses have provided constant beacons of light to sailors for many years, bringing them home

    safely. Effectively helping them to navigate the treacherous and sometimes dangerous reefs and jetties that must be avoided in order to reach our coastal paradise.

    It is inspiring to see the lighthouses, to hear the stories of those who were the keepers of the light, the stories of those saved by the light and to see them still standing, still doing their job — constant.

    I’d like to invite you to explore some of these lighthouses that have been a welcome sight for so many

    through the years. - Suzanne Nunn, FPEA Chairman

    You're Invited!

    On behalf of the Florida Parent-Educators Association, I want to invite you to attend the 2020 Annual FPEA Florida Homeschool Convention. We are celebrating this year with the theme, Wild Florida – Live Free! #noregrets.



    Our freedom to explore is intricately aligned with our freedom to homeschool — and to do both in a way that best suits our family. The Convention is scheduled for May 21-23 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, a venue that truly embraces Florida’s wild heritage and vintage charm.



    We are the biggest and the best Convention for homeschooling families in the country. There is something for everyone — education, entertainment, encouragement and great shopping! This year we are excited to bring you two incredible keynote speakers. Rick Green will be greeting us Friday morning with a message of inspiration and encouragement to jumpstart the weekend. Saturday morning, Zan Tyler will join us with a fantastic session that will remind you just how precious this season of homeschooling really is.

    These are only two from the exciting slate of speakers we have in store for you. You’ll see some familiar faces, but some, like Tricia Goyer and Linda Lacour Hobar, are making their first appearance at our convention. All of our speakers and each of their sessions have been carefully selected to help us celebrate our freedom to homeschool as we see fit.



    Take your time to peruse these offerings as well as the many exciting events for the entire family. Then, log onto www.fpea.com and REGISTER!

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Loving Florida - Living Free,

    Suzanne Nunn, Chairman

    Thank you to our Sponsor - A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Movie!



    Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about kindness, love and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbor.
