Praying Without Ceasing

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. – I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 119: Pray Without Ceasing

One of the core things that my husband and I want to define our family culture is a lifestyle of praying. I like to say that anytime is the right time to bring our families before the throne of grace. We are so privileged to be able to boldly come before the throne of grace to find grace to help in our time of need.

As we go through our days there are ongoing opportunities to lead our young people in prayer, and on this episode we’re talking about the subject of praying without ceasing. I would love to hear from you. How do you cultivate a prayerful atmosphere in your home?

Concerns for the Times

Hello my friends and welcome back to this week’s episode of the “Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast.” Today I am talking about my personal concerns for the times we find ourselves living in. Additionally I will be addressing my grief over how many young people are walking away from the faith.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 118: Concerns For the Times

This is a serious issue; the lure of the world and the tides of evil are strong. Now is the time for Christian parents to be crying out to God to do a mighty work in our homes as we pray for true gospel transformation in the hearts of our young people.

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.  II Timothy 3:1-5

Training Children to Work with Katie LaPierre

Teaching children to work and contribute to a smooth running household is just another important element of a good education. When you think about it, learning to be diligent workers is one of the most important life lessons we can impart to our children.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 117: Interview With Katy LaPierre

My experience with seven children has taught me that children are not usually naturally excited about chores and responsibilities. Like so many other areas of life, it is our job as parents to train them to value work and to know how to work efficiently.

To help us with some practical ideas on how we can raise our children to be diligent, I invited my friend Katie LaPierre to share on this week’s episode of the podcast. Katie is the wife of Scott who is an author and pastor in the Pacific Northwest. Katie is the author of the “Eternally Minded Mamas One-Month Devotional and Journal, and she and Scott are the parents to eight children.

Not My Strength but His

Sometimes we all feel week and feeble and lack certainty about the future. Some days and seasons are harder than others, but when trying times come we can remember that God is our strength. On today’s episode of the “Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast” we take a look at a devotional writing written by Susana Spurgeon that reminds us that we can go weak and needy before the throne of grace and find all that we need in Christ.

Steadfast Women

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 114: Remaining Steadfast Through Trials

The culture surrounding us tells us to be strong, determined, tough women. Even much of Christian culture shouts this message. Sadly these messages are often referring to being strong in our own strength rather than putting on the full armor of God and allowing His strength to flow through us. Remember Paul said, “Not I but Christ.”

I do not like the world’s philosophy of women being strong, competitive, and tough. Instead I like the word steadfast. I want to be a steadfast woman. I want the strength of the Lord to flow through me so that I have strength of character and steadfastness for the journey. Basically I want to stay the course and run the race well. Certainly that ability and strength only comes through Christ in me.

This is the topic of today’s Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast. You can listen here or hop over to iTunes where you can subscribe to the weekly podcast.

In a world of unrest and uncertainty I am encouraged to remember that it is He who will hold us fast. As we walk with Him day by day, He will sustain us and give us the steadfastness we need to finish well.

Raising Them Up; a Discussion with Israel Wayne

Hello Friends and welcome back to another episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast! Today’s episode is a discussion I had with my friend Israel Wayne.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 112: Interview with Israel Wayne

Israel recently published a new book titled “Raising Them Up,” and on this episode he dives into some of the topics from his book. A few things we discuss are parenting different age groups, dealing with technology, and keeping the gospel at the heart of our parenting.

I want to encourage you to check out the ministry of Israel and his wife Brook. They both speak and write and are the parents of ten children. They have a lot of seasoned wisdom on the topics of parenting, homeschooling, a Biblical worldview and much more. I will leave links below for you to connect with them and find encouragement for the journey:

Homeschool Organization Tips

Hello Friends! Our family recently turned over another grade level in our homeschool. Since we school year around we often advance to new grades at odd times of the year.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 110: Helpful Tips for Homeschool Organization

This year I have put more focus than usual on homeschool room organization, and on today’s podcast episode I share some of the things that I have found helpful to us in our homeschool journey. I hope it will be a blessing for you!

I have to admit that organization is not my gifting, but just because something does not come natural to me does not mean that I cannot learn to do better. So, I would love to hear from you. What strategies do you use to keep all the things organized in your homeschool? Please leave comments and reach out to me on my social media as well; I would love to hear from you!

Here are some of the items, or similar items, that I mentioned in today’s episode. These are affiliate links, so should you choose to purchase something using these links, I will make a small profit which will help fund this podcast. Thanks so much for your support!

While I think that a designated space to keep all things pertaining to homeschool is nice, it absolutely is not a necessity for successful homeschooling. Whether one homeschools in a schoolroom or around the kitchen table, the most important thing is to keep our focus on “Seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” Matthew 6:33 May the Lord help us to keep our eyes looking upward and our gaze set on the ministry the Lord has given us within the walls of our own homes. Thank you so much for listening to this podcast, and may the Lord bless you until we meet again!

The Lord our Protector

Welcome back to the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast available through this sound bar and also over at iTunes. Today we are talking about God being our refuge, protector, and strong tower during current events happening in our nation.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 109: The Lord Our Protector

I hope this episode will be a strength to your heart and a blessed reminder that if God is for us, who can be against us. There is much trouble abounding, and yet God has not fallen off of His throne. He sits exalted in the heavens and is still Sovereign over our lives. We can trust in Him and look up fixing our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen.

These troubling times are an opportunity for us to remember that this world is not our home and to live intentionally in light of eternity. I always love to hear from my listeners, so please reach out. You can connect with me in multiple ways:
