Identifying and Correcting Blocked Learning Gates in Your Child (Podcast 326)
2022/06/27
Many of us are homeschooling struggling learners. It can be easy to feel like we are not qualified, but I firmly believe that we are in fact the best facilitators of our kids' education.  No one loves and cares for our kids like we do and no one is more invested in their future.  I also think that we can often make things more difficult than we need to. I believe that God can give us simple, effective strategies and resources that allow us to relax and enjoy our kids as we home educate them, whether they are struggling learners or not. One of the things I love to do on the podcast is to connect moms with great resources, so I am excited about our guest today.

Drive-Thru Talking - An Effective Communication Tool (Podcast 324)

Recognizing False Teachers (Podcast 323)
2022/06/17
Hold onto your hats! This is a good one! It’s no secret that there are many false teachers out there and the fallout from following them can be devastating to our families. Paul warns the Church repeatedly in the New Testament to stay away from false teachers.  One good thing that Covid revealed was the number of teachers who are simply not adhering to biblical truths. Now that we are wiser about that, how do we avoid following false teachers? What are the types of false teachers and how can you recognize them? I invited one of the elders of our church to speak on this topic because I knew he would do this effectively and I was not disappointed! Wes has joined me for several other podcasts and it’s been a huge blessing to all of us! (These previous podcasts are listed below) If you can, please listen in with your husband and as many of your children as you can. This is a very timely and crucial message. Wes did forget to cover the last thing he said he would cover and that was a list of warning signs that could be present in your own church:  Warning signs that could be present within your own church: -False teachers are often surrounded by young and or spiritually immature leaders because they’re less inclined to challenge a given decision, doctrinal position, or direction proposed by the pastor.  -False teachers are themselves often young and spiritually immature leaders. -False teachers generally have a loose relationship with biblical exposition (The biblical text isn’t the star of the sermon, the pastor’s anecdotes, illustrations, and jokes are). -False teachers are reluctant to practice church discipline because they’re far less concerned with the holiness of God’s people than they are with amassing a sizable crowd. -False teachers often place a high emphasis on aesthetics, marketing, appearances, and production value because people having a positive experience at their church is more important to them than biblical faithfulness.  The Unhurried Homeschooler Unhurried Grace for a Mom’s Heart The Four Hour School Day Homeschooling Today Previous podcasts with Wes: Applying Romans 13 to the Here and Now (A biblical response to churches shutting down during Covid) Homeschooling: The Importance of a Biblical Education A Call Home: The Biblical Importance of Family The Sovereignty of God and the Problem of Sin in Our World

When Your Homeschooled Teen Won’t Get Ready on Time in the Mornings (Podcast 322)
2022/06/13
What do we do when our homeschooled teens are ignoring our requests for timeliness?  What is actually best for them and what does that look like? I've invited our 19 yr old daughter to tackle this topic! The Unhurried Homeschooler Unhurried Grace for a Mom’s Heart The Four Hour School Day Homeschooling Today (P.S.

The Sovereignty of God and the Problem of Sin in Our World (Podcast 321)
2022/06/10
Today I want to talk about something that I refer to a lot in my podcasts: the sovereignty of God. This particular doctrine has been absolutely pivotal in helping me trust God both in the everyday and in times of crisis. It’s one that has been a safety net and indescribable comfort when nothing else could comfort me. Many Christians say that they believe in the sovereignty of God, but there are varying perspectives on what that actually means. A few questions that come to mind and will be answered in this podcast:  Is God active or passive with regard to the world that He made? Is there any sense in which God wound up the world, set certain parameters, and then let it go? Or is He actively governing His creation and making determinations about what will and what will not happen?

What Does it Mean to Be ’Unhurried’ (Podcast 320)
2022/06/06
I talk about simplifying and slowing down a lot, but I’ve realized that some might envision something different than what I mean when I talk about being unhurried. The unhurried approach started with our kids’ education but morphed into being a default that we fell back on frequently to help us stay intentional. It hasn’t been a goal as much as it has been a helpful tool. Listen in for some clarification on what I really mean when I encourage moms to be unhurried.

Who Is Informing Our View of Family? (Podcast 319)
2022/06/03
We all have ideas about family: its importance, its place in this world, what it should look like, etc. But upon further examination, we may come to realize that our perspective isn’t actually biblical.  Why do we have children? Why did God create families? What effect are families intended to have on the world and how do they advance the kingdom of God?

We Can’t Serve Two Masters (Podcast 317)
2022/05/27
With so many distractions we can easily find ourselves oriented away from God and toward things that cannot satisfy. Jesus didn't mince words when He said that we cannot serve two masters because we will always eventually love the one and hate the other. Listen in today for some clear, concise encouragement toward remaining faithful to keep God ever before us, serving Him only. This is the only place we will find true peace and satisfaction.

Many of us are thinking about the next school year and trying to get a jump on planning (unless you’re like me and wait until the last minute)! Today my friend Sara (a veteran homeschooling mom) and I are talking about “reverse planning” or “planning your homeschool with the end in mind” remember to be stubborn about our goals, but flexible about our methods!

Considering Your Kids’ Personalities in Your Approach (Podcast 315)
2022/05/20
One of the most helpful things we did along the way was to increase our knowledge and awareness of our kids’ personalities so we could better approach both parenting and homeschooling. Simply having a bit of a picture of how our kids are wired by God and taking the time to make some tweaks in how we communicate with them can help us avoid a host of unnecessary power struggles. Today my friend Sara(another veteran homeschool mom) and I discuss this topic and provide simple resources.
