Truths from the Teaching of Amy Carmichael

Recently one of my daughters read the YWAM biography about the life of Amy Carmichael. Throughout my life I have also been impacted by this lady’s devotion to Christ, and I desire to continue to learn more about her in the years to come.

On today’s episode of the podcast I am sharing a little from one of Amy’s books called Fragments that Remain, and I pray that your heart will be strengthened as we glean from Amy’s wisdom.

The State of Our Quarantine

Hello my Friends, here we are entering another week of quarantine, and I thought it might be interesting to record an episode sharing what we have been up to during this unprecedented time of being quarantined at home.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 102: The State Of Our Quarantine

I hope that you enjoy hearing about our little farmstead and the projects we have been keeping ourselves busy with, and I hope that the Scriptures I share will be a strength to your heart. I feel like my own heart can easily grow faint during this time of so much uncertainty, but I am finding that it is God’s Word that stabilizes my emotions and helps me to think rightly. I encourage you to be in the Word and renewing your minds with the truths of God’s eternal promises. We need those assurances especially in times like these.

May the Lord grant us the grace to wait patiently upon Him and to be a light to those who see us and may ask the reason for the hope that lies within us. Enjoy the extra time with your family, and I would love to hear from you. What are you doing to stay busy during these days, weeks, and possibly months of staying home? May the Lord bless you with His grace and peace.

I would love to keep in touch with you. Here are some places you can find me:

What to do with Little People While Homeschooling

Hi my friends! I have been parenting now for over nineteen years, and we have always homeschooled our seven children. This means that I have walked through many years of trying to teach older children with younger siblings in the mix. There have been many days of pulling my hair out as I tried to find workable solutions, and while I have not mastered the art of a perfectly run homeschool day, I have gleaned some ideas that have been helpful.

I recently put together a video to share some ideas for how to give our younger children the purposeful direction they need which helps minimize the chaos and messes that little ones can so quickly get themselves into. I hope that this is helpful. Remembering that the little years are just a season that passes all too quickly can help tune up our perspective on those hard days. I’m on the tail end of the little years with my youngest two, but in this video I share from things I have learned over time.

I hope this episode is an encouraging reminder that our foundation is in Christ alone. Regardless of how our society may be turned upside down right now, we have a sure footing upon the solid rock of Jesus Christ.

Waiting on the Lord Through the Coronavirus Pandemic

Our God is with Us

Hello Friends, this past week has been like none other in my entire life. Circumstances have been changing daily due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We have been seeing what it means to truly trust the Lord day by day in the midst of all the uncertainty.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 98: Remembering That Our God is With Us

As the Lord would have it I had already recorded this podcast episode before I ever knew what would be happening in our world this week. I pray that this episode will be a comforting reminder to you that our God is with us at all times and in all circumstances. This Coronavirus is no surprise to our Sovereign Lord and He is with us.

I believe that this can be an opportunity for believers to offer the hope of Christ to the lost world as they see us walking in faith and doing what we can to assist others sharing with those in need. May the Lord hold you and your family close and protect you through this challenging time.

Talking About the Why of Homeschooling

Hello Friends, on today’s episode of the podcast I talk about why my husband and I have chosen the path of homeschooling for our seven children.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 97: Talking About Why We Homeschool

Our core motivation for homeschooling is family discipleship, and in this episode I share how we are attempting to train our children for Christ through all of our living and learning.

If there was ever a time to fully embrace this model of teaching our children diligently all through the day and night, now is the time. We are raising children in a time of great moral confusion, and we need to be equipping our young people to be able to stand against the tides of evil in their generation. Homeschooling is not the Savior, but my husband and I believe that it is a powerful tool to lead our children in the truth and give them a vision for kingdom-minded priorities.

I would love to hear from you. Here are some ways that you can connect with me. Thank you so much for listening to the podcast, and please share the podcast with your friends so that more ladies can hear and be encouraged.

A Legacy of Faith for Young Ladies

On last week’s podcast episode my husband and I shared about the new Word Study Scripture Writing Journals that will be coming out very soon. We thought that we would have at least one of the journals available last week, but there has been a delay in getting them printed. We have had encouraging response to the journals, and we are very hopeful that they will soon be available. We will keep you posted. 🙂 The good news is that both the ESV and the KJV versions are on their way to the printing process.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 96: A Legacy of Faith for Young ladies (Also available through iTunes)

On this week’s episode Matt and I are sharing about another resource that is also on its way to the printer. This is a project that I have poured a lot of my heart into and am so excited about. It is a picture book for young ladies called A legacy of Faith for Young Ladies. In this story I take many of the truths that I shared in my book Legacy Reflections of a Homeschooled Homeschooling Mama and present them to younger girls in a way that is engaging for mothers and daughters to enjoy together.

These are some screenshots of the pdf showing how the book is looking on my laptop.

Young ladies in this generation need gospel-driven Biblical direction today more than ever before. The culture is a confusing place for today’s young lady, and this picture book was written to encourage young ladies with Biblical vision for how the Lord can use them to carry on the truth of God’s eternal word into the next generation.

Here is a video where I share an update on both The Word Study Scripture Writing Journal and the new picture book A Legacy of Faith for Young Ladies.

This book is very special to me, because it contains much of my own personal story of being raised in the faith and also because my oldest daughter created the artwork for it. We are really excited to make this resource available hopefully within the next few weeks. We will definitely keep you posted as to when and where you can get copies of both the Scripture writing journals and A Legacy of Faith for Young Ladies. Our prayer is that these resources will be an encouragement to many.

It is such a joy to me to hear from listeners, so please connect with me and let me know how the podcast is blessing you.

The Word Study Scripture Writing Journal for Ladies

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” – II Timothy 3:16 ESV

Hello Friends, I am excited to share with you today about a brand new resource that my husband and I have been working on to encourage ladies to get into the Word of God and meditate on it. You can hear all about our brand new Word Study Scripture Writing Journal for Ladies on this episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 95: The Word Study Scripture Writing Journal

Ladies today are often juggling so many responsibilities and demands that it can be a real struggle to get into the Word and see the transforming power it has in our lives. In creating this journal my husband and I are hoping to put a practical tool in the hands of ladies to encourage them to get a daily dose of meditation on a short passage of God’s Word. Through using the journal we pray that ladies will reap the benefits of looking at a quick Hebrew or Greek word study to enhance the passage. The beautiful thing is that the word study has already been done for you and is printed out on each day’s Scripture Writing page.

Scripture writing has become popular, and one of the many benefits is that when we take the time to actually write down something it helps to cement it into our memories. I often like to take notes at conferences and at church, because I know that when I write something down it helps me better internalize the truths I am hearing.

That is our hope for this new Scripture Writing Journal. We want ladies to have a doable plan for taking in a small portion of Scripture daily, writing it down, reading a word study definition, and then having a place to write an application and a prayer focus. Then the idea is to take that study with you throughout the day asking the Lord to help you apply it in your life.

We are so excited to make this Scripture Writing journal available, and our hope is to add future volumes. This first journal is meant to last for about three months worth of journaling and focuses on needs of the heart such as comfort, peace, encouragement, etc. We pray you will be blessed and encouraged.

Recently my husband and I took a short get-away trip to Ohio. While there we recorded this video where you can see what the Word Study Scripture Writing journal looks like! We are so excited!

As always, I love to get to know my listeners. Please reach out and let me know how the podcast is encouraging you. You can connect with me in these ways:
