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.

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:

Talking About Our Big Move



It has been a good while since I have posted anything on this website or published a new podcast. As many of you know our family has been undergoing a huge transition from our farm to a smaller farm across town. I will be honest with you…..this has been really hard. It has been hard physically and emotionally leaving the farm we loved so much and adapting to change, but God has been faithful.

“God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” – I Corinthians 1:9

We are now fully moved into our new home, and while we still have a lot of unpacking to do, we are happy to finally be settling into our new place. On this episode of the podcast https://legacyhomeschoolreflections.blogspot.com/2019/07/legacy-homeschool-reflections-podcast.htmlmy husband Matt joins me again to talk about some of our experiences through this move, why we moved, and what the Lord has been teaching us through the move.

Thank you for stopping by and tuning into the podcast, and I would love to hear from you. You can find me on facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/legacyhomeschoolreflections/?eid=ARCK8ZS3ytq1cXIZwwYybHFWA7vrJ9meAB60_HSgULhUJVteiO0C5pO5DuZjVODIhf24keUxJdKB_SDR

Also, I am so grateful for each and every review listeners leave on iTunes. I read each one, and the reviews help the podcast to become more visible for other Mamas to find and be encouraged.

Have you recently moved? Are you thinking about moving? Do you live in the country or the city? I would love to hear your experiences and where the Lord currently has you. Wherever we are may we live fully for His kingdom purposes. Have a blessed week!

Consecrated Families

Welcome to this episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast where our topic is consecrating our families to the Lord and His service.

There are many areas that we can set apart or consecrate to our Lord, but in this podcast I touched on three of those areas. I discuss ideas for consecrating the areas of time, academics/learning and our affections especially in the area of entertainment. I pray that it will be an encouragement to you!
