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.

A Solid Rock in Troubled Times

Hello Friends, I hope that this post finds you healthy and trusting the Lord through these unprecedented days of this pandemic. I recorded this episode right before everything broke out with this pandemic, but it is full of Biblical encouragement to stable our hearts through the challenges our world is currently facing. 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

Hello Friends, I hope that you are doing well and that the Lord’s mercies are a strength to you during this unprecedented time that we are walking through. On today’s episode of the podcast I talk about waiting upon the Lord during this time when we are not even sure what normal is anymore.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 99: Our Souls Wait For the Lord Through COVID-19

Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield. – Psalm 33:20

It is encouraging to remember the Sovereignty of God during times like this and to acknowledge that He has not fallen off of His throne. The Lord has not been taken by surprise by this virus, and He is with us as we walk through these unchartered waters.

I know that there are many stresses and concerns that we all are facing, but I hope that the things I share on this episode will be fortifying to you and offer Biblical encouragement.

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.

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.

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.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 92: Three Tips for Homeschool Planning

Are you already in planning mode for next school year? Are you attending a homeschool convention this spring? It can be helpful to be thinking ahead of time about what you might want to plan so that you can enter the convention with some ideas to guide you.

I will be speaking at three Teach Them Diligently conventions this year. Just click the events tab on this website to see where you can find me. I would love to meet you at one of these events!

I hope that you have a blessed week in the Lord. Thank you for listening to the podcast, and may the Lord supply you with much wisdom and grace as you serve Him this week.

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.
