Choosing a Missions Minded Christmas with Ann Dunagan

I am really excited about this week’s episode of the “Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast.”

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 85: Choosing a Missions Minded Christmas with Ann Dunagan

On this episode I had the privilege of interviewing my sweet friend Ann Dunagan. Ann is full of life, encouragement, and passion for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ! She is a veteran homeschool mom to seven children who are all seeking to fulfill the great commission in their generation. Ann has been an encourager and cheerleader in my life, and I am confident that you will be encouraged by hearing her heart for living with an eternal perspective.

In our discussion, Ann and I talk about creative ways that we can be living on mission for Jesus during the Christmas season. Christmastime offers our families unique opportunities to share Christ, so on this episode Ann and I discuss some ways families can engage in the great commission during the holiday season.

Here are links for connecting with Ann and other helpful resources:h

Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving week! This morning I have a song running through my head that says:

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son

And now let the weak say, “I am strong”
Let the poor say, “I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us”

Give thanks with a grateful heart (with a grateful heart)
Give thanks to the Holy One (to the Holy One)
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son

On today’s episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast, we are talking about giving thanks for Jesus Who is the supreme blessing above all other blessings. If we have Christ, we have great treasure regardless of anything else going on in our lives.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 83: Thanksgiving Week 2019

On this episode we look at Ephesians chapter two and are reminded of the magnitude of what Christ did for us while we were still dead in our trespasses and sins. We can be grateful for our homes, good food, fun times, traditions, and material blessings, but let us also take this week to remember to be grateful for Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. He is the giver of all the good gifts. May we love and desire the Giver more than the gifts. May we desire the Blesser more than the blessings. May we look to Him and give thanks.

Preparing for Thanksgiving

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 82: Preparing for Thanksgiving Week

It is hard to believe that next week is Thanksgiving week! On today’s episode of the podcast I talk about the importance of being a thankful people and share some practical ideas on ways to bring more faith and gratitude into our Thanksgiving celebrations.

Gratefulness is not something I see a lot of in the culture at large, and so I think that cultivating gratitude is just another way the christian is called to swim upstream and live by a different set of priorities.

I also think that thankfulness is not something that comes natural to our human flesh, so this is another area for God’s Holy Spirit to grow us to be more like Christ Jesus our Lord.

I would love to hear ideas for how you celebrate Thanksgiving in your family. Do you have some intentional ways that you are encouraging your family towards gratitude this year? You can connect with me in the following ways:

Overflowing with Thankfulness

Hello Friends! Last week I did not post a podcast, because I was traveling across several states with my children. Today we are jumping back into our series from Colossians chapter two and finishing the series up with a discussion about thankfulness. You can listen to the “Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast” below or subscribe over at iTunes.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 81: Colossians 2:6-7 Part 5 – Thankfulness

The Scripture commands us to give thanks and to be a grateful people. Sadly in our culture today, we have to be intentionally swimming upstream to live a lifestyle of gratitude. Our culture is often one of whining and complaining about every little inconvenience instead of resting in the Sovereignty of our God Who knows what is best for His people.

I hope that this episode encourages us all to dwell on the goodness of the Lord and on helping our families cultivate grateful hearts. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but we do not want to merely think about our blessings on one day of the year. Instead may the Lord help us to grow in an ongoing lifestyle of gratitude for Jesus and His great salvation along with all the other blessings He bestows upon us. What are you grateful for today? I would love to hear from you!

Colossians 2:6-7 Part II Helping Our Families Walk with the Lord

Hello Friends, this last week my husband and I celebrated our twentieth anniversary. We were blessed to be able to take a very special trip to Prince Edward Island where we toured the Lucy Maud Montgomery/Anne of Green Gables history. After a challenging year of moving and sending our oldest daughter off to college it was so nice to get away to a quiet, serene place and enjoy a slower pace.

My husband and I have many goals in our lives, but our greatest desire is that our family will walk with the Lord and further His kingdom and His righteousness. On this week’s episode of the podcast we are looking again at Colossians 2:6-7 and focusing on practical ways of leading our families to walk with Jesus.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 78: Colossians 2 – Part 2 Walking With the Lord as Families

I love to hear from my listeners, and I would love to hear ways the Lord is leading your family to follow after Him and serve His kingdom purposes.

I Can’t Believe You Just Said That: An Interview with Ginger Hubbard

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 76: Interview with Ginger Hubbard

Do you ever grow weary of your children whining, complaining, fighting, tattling, etc? On today’s episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast I’m talking with Ginger Hubbard, author of the book “I Can’t Believe You Just Said That.” I greatly appreciate the way Ginger shares practical wisdom from God’s Word on how to get to the heart of the sinful behaviors we see in our children. It isn’t enough to just correct the outward behaviors in our children; we need to probe deeper and deal with the heart issues that are manifesting the sinful behaviors.

I think you are going to be so encouraged by the truths Ginger shares straight from the Word of God! There really is a manual that comes with parenting; it is the Word of God, and Ginger offers life-giving encouragement for weary and discouraged parents.

For all things Ginger Hubbard I encourage you towards her website http://ginger hubbard.org

You can also connect with Ginger on Instagram at ginger.hubbard.

Christ Our Eternal Hope

Sometimes life circumstances hit very hard and we need to remember that our hope is in Christ alone. He is our only sure foundation, and He is able to carry us through turbulent waters during the worst of life’s storms. On today’s episode of the podcast my husband, Matt, joins me to talk about clinging to hope in Jesus Christ when we have no other hope.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 75: Our Eternal Hope in Troubled Times

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,  and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 
who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. – I Peter 1:3-6
