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.

Choosing a Missions Minded Christmas with Ann Dunagan

I am really excited about this week’s episode of the “Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast.”

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 85: Choosing a Missions Minded Christmas with Ann Dunagan

On this episode I had the privilege of interviewing my sweet friend Ann Dunagan. Ann is full of life, encouragement, and passion for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ! She is a veteran homeschool mom to seven children who are all seeking to fulfill the great commission in their generation. Ann has been an encourager and cheerleader in my life, and I am confident that you will be encouraged by hearing her heart for living with an eternal perspective.

In our discussion, Ann and I talk about creative ways that we can be living on mission for Jesus during the Christmas season. Christmastime offers our families unique opportunities to share Christ, so on this episode Ann and I discuss some ways families can engage in the great commission during the holiday season.

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:

Overflowing with Thankfulness

Hello Friends! Last week I did not post a podcast, because I was traveling across several states with my children. Today we are jumping back into our series from Colossians chapter two and finishing the series up with a discussion about thankfulness. You can listen to the “Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast” below or subscribe over at iTunes.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 81: Colossians 2:6-7 Part 5 – Thankfulness

The Scripture commands us to give thanks and to be a grateful people. Sadly in our culture today, we have to be intentionally swimming upstream to live a lifestyle of gratitude. Our culture is often one of whining and complaining about every little inconvenience instead of resting in the Sovereignty of our God Who knows what is best for His people.

I hope that this episode encourages us all to dwell on the goodness of the Lord and on helping our families cultivate grateful hearts. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but we do not want to merely think about our blessings on one day of the year. Instead may the Lord help us to grow in an ongoing lifestyle of gratitude for Jesus and His great salvation along with all the other blessings He bestows upon us. What are you grateful for today? I would love to hear from you!

Colossians 2:6-7 Part II Helping Our Families Walk with the Lord

Hello Friends, this last week my husband and I celebrated our twentieth anniversary. We were blessed to be able to take a very special trip to Prince Edward Island where we toured the Lucy Maud Montgomery/Anne of Green Gables history. After a challenging year of moving and sending our oldest daughter off to college it was so nice to get away to a quiet, serene place and enjoy a slower pace.

My husband and I have many goals in our lives, but our greatest desire is that our family will walk with the Lord and further His kingdom and His righteousness. On this week’s episode of the podcast we are looking again at Colossians 2:6-7 and focusing on practical ways of leading our families to walk with Jesus.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 78: Colossians 2 – Part 2 Walking With the Lord as Families

I love to hear from my listeners, and I would love to hear ways the Lord is leading your family to follow after Him and serve His kingdom purposes.

I Can’t Believe You Just Said That: An Interview with Ginger Hubbard

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 76: Interview with Ginger Hubbard

Do you ever grow weary of your children whining, complaining, fighting, tattling, etc? On today’s episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast I’m talking with Ginger Hubbard, author of the book “I Can’t Believe You Just Said That.” I greatly appreciate the way Ginger shares practical wisdom from God’s Word on how to get to the heart of the sinful behaviors we see in our children. It isn’t enough to just correct the outward behaviors in our children; we need to probe deeper and deal with the heart issues that are manifesting the sinful behaviors.

I think you are going to be so encouraged by the truths Ginger shares straight from the Word of God! There really is a manual that comes with parenting; it is the Word of God, and Ginger offers life-giving encouragement for weary and discouraged parents.

For all things Ginger Hubbard I encourage you towards her website http://ginger hubbard.org

You can also connect with Ginger on Instagram at ginger.hubbard.

Thanks so much for tuning into the podcast, leaving reviews, and sharing with friends. I would love to connect with you on my facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/legacyhomeschoolreflections/

Have a blessed week and may the Lord strengthen our families to speak words of wisdom, grace, and truth.
