Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 93: Loving Your Family Well

God is truly the source of love, and when we know Him His love should pour out of us to those around us. Sometimes showing love is not easy, and we have to make an intentional choice to allow Christ to love through us.

On this episode we will look at the famous love chapter from I Corinthians 13 and talk about what love is and is not as well as some applications for our lives as wives and mothers.

Tips for Homeschool Planning

Whenever it comes to homeschool planning or creating a new family routine I have learned how vitally important it is for me to ask wisdom from the Lord. The Lord knows my family better than I do, and He knows what is ahead in the future. It is a comfort to me to begin my planning with prayer trusting in the faithfulness of God to guide me.

On today’s episode of the podcast I am sharing three tips for homeschool planning and creating a family routine. I think the principles I share could be applied to many different kinds of decision making and planning, and I hope that they will be an encouragement to you.

Practical Helps for the Busy Homemaker

Hello Friends, I think the flu hit our family this past week with no survivors. We are in survival mode, but thankfully I recorded this week’s podcast before the plague hit us. 🙂 I pray it will be a blessing to you.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 91: Practical Tips for Home Management

I hope that this week’s episode will encourage you with some practical ideas and also with a reminder about the importance of the work God has given us to do in loving and serving others. I love this quote from Charles Spurgeon which speaks to the great importance of homemaking.

May the Lord give us all strength and encouragement for the tasks He has called us to. Have a blessed week, Dear Ladies.

Persevering for the Glory of God

My Friends, I cannot believe that we are already this far into the first month of the new year! This month has been flying by even though this is the slower part of the year for our family.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 90: Persevering For The Glory of God

On today’s episode of the podcast I am talking about persevering for the glory of God even when we feel stretched and worn thin. I know January can often be a less than stellar month for many homeschool moms. It is often the case that enthusiasm can be waning by this time in the school year, and having children cooped up indoors can get old quickly.

I pray that this episode is an encouraging reminder that our Lord provides the grace we need for each season of our lives, and His presence will enable us to persevere even during the long and dreary days.

Embracing Another Year and Another Decade with Intentionality

It is mind boggling to think that we have entered another decade and a bit sobering to think where I will be when this new decade passes. At that point I will have mostly children in their twenties! That sure does put perspective on the need to be faithful and intentional in the precious fleeting days God has given me with my children.

On this episode of the podcast we talk about making wise use of our time and break it down into some specific priorities we should focus on in order to steward our time wisely. Listen here or hop over to iTunes and search the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast.

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:
