I grew up reading their story in books, hearing her voice on the radio, and even seeing her speak in person once. My life has been greatly impacted by the legacy and testimony of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot. As a wife and mother I have often drawn strength from the writings of Elisabeth Elliot as I am sure many of you have as well.
It was a great joy to interview Jim and Elisabeth Elliot’s daughter Valerie Shephard and hear her tell the story of her parents’ devotion to God and to each other. Valerie is the mother of eight grown children and the author of the book Devotedly which tells the love story of her parents. I know you will enjoy hearing this inspiring testimony of what God did through the lives of two people whose hearts were completely devoted to Him.
May we never underestimate what God can do in and through our families if we too will live our lives completely and totally devoted to His Lordship.
Welcome back, Friends! On this week’s episode of “The Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast” I am talking about passing on a legacy of faith through home education. The world around us is in chaos, but we have an anchor for our soul in Jesus Christ. Let’s keep focused on the mission He has given us within the walls of our own homes. His Word and His promises do not fail, and He can be trusted even in troublesome times. May the Lord bless you until we meet again.
Hello Friends! This year we graduated our second child from our homeschool. Two years ago we graduated our oldest child, so it feels like the domino effect has begun with launching our young people into adulthood. I stand in awe as I remember my own homeschool experience and process the fact that I now have two homeschool graduates. Together we stand as first and second generation homeschool graduates. We give praise to the Lord as it is all of Him and not of us.
Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 151: Encouragement for a New Homeschool Year
On this episode of the podcast I take a look back and share some things that I think are so very important to the homeschooling journey. There are no perfect formulas, but the Lord will guide each of our families as we seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.

Hello Friends! This episode of The Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast concludes our series on the Fruit of the Spirit. If you have journeyed through this series with me I hope that it has been an encouragement to you.
Hello Friends! As we look at our current culture it seems there is a severe shortage of faithfulness both in individuals and families. When you read about one more influential leader caught in sin do you ever ask yourself who you can really trust? We can take heart and be encouraged when we meditate on the faithfulness of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord! Psalm 117:1-2 ESV
As followers of Christ we are to be in the process of transformation becoming more like Him. As we walk with Christ He develops the fruit of His Spirit in us making us a more faithful people. The result is more faithfulness in singleness, in marriage, in parenting, in serving, and in sharing the gospel. May the Lord continue His work of sanctification in us to the praise of His glory.
On this week’s episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast we are talking about God’s faithfulness in and through us.
