Walking in the Love of Christ

Walking in love towards others does not always come easy. As mothers we need the grace of God to help us show love through the disturbances, messes, and irritations that are part of daily family life. We need God’s love extended through us to help us lovingly do the hard work of training and working on character issues with our children.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 106: Walking In The Love Of Christ

On today’s episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast we are discussing the great love of God towards us. When we understand the magnitude of the love we have been given, it will be easier to extend patience and love to those around us.

Discussing Motherhood with Valerie Elliot Shepard

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 105: Discussion on Motherhood with Valerie Shepard

Hello Friends, I hope that you were able to hear the podcast episode last week where I talked to Valerie Elliot Shepard, daughter to missionaries Jim and Elisabeth Elliot. If you did not hear that episode, I encourage you to go back and listen. It was so interesting to hear Valerie share about the love story of her parents and God’s faithfulness in their lives.

This week I am shifting gears and talking with Valerie about the holy and privileged calling of motherhood. Valerie is the mother to eight grown children and eight grandchildren. As you can imagine she has much seasoned advice to share, and I know you are going to be blessed!

I encourage you to check out the many books Valerie’s mother Elisabeth Elliot wrote and definitely to pick up your copy of Valerie’s new book “Devotedly” It is a gem of a book telling the story of her parents’ courtship and of their devotion to God and to one another. You can find Devotedly at http://devotedlybook.com and also on Amazon.

Did you know that Elisabeth Elliot used to have a radio program called Gateway to Joy? You can listen to some of those episodes through this link: https://bbn1.bbnradio.org/english/home/all-programs/gateway-to-joy-elisabeth-elliot/

I am sharing these books by Elisabeth Elliot and Valerie Shepard as part of Amazon’s affiliate link program:

Devotedly with Valerie Elliot Shepard

Jim and Elisabeth

Hello my Friends! I am so thrilled that you are joining me for this very special episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast!

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 104: Devotedly – Interview With Valerie Shepard

On this episode I have a very special guest. Valerie Elliot Shepard is the daughter to Jim and Elisabeth Elliot missionaries to Ecuador. Valerie was so kind to share the story of how God brought her parents together and used them to engage in kingdom work for His glory. It was a joy to hear from Valerie, and I know you are going to be greatly blessed!

Elisabeth and Valerie

This story is a powerful testimony of what God can do through those whose hearts are fully devoted to Him. You will hear how Jim and Elisabeth were devoted first of all to their God and then to each other.

Valerie also shares about her new book “Devotedly” where she tells the story of the courtship of her parents. The book contains many of the letters they wrote back and forth to each other before they were married, and I was so impressed at the level of spiritual maturity they possessed at such young ages.

You can check out the Devotedly website here: http://devotedlybook.com

I so appreciate Val taking the time to share on the podcast, and the exciting thing is that she will be back with me again next week for a different conversation about motherhood. Val is the mother of eight children and has a lot of wisdom to share from her years of raising her own family. I hope you will come back next week for that conversation!

I am going to link to some books by Elisabeth Elliot below as well as Valerie’s beautiful book Devotedly. I am currently reading through Devotedly and it is a stunningly beautiful book that I am really enjoying! Do you have any favorite books by Elisabeth Elliot? I would love to hear about your favorites!

Truths from the Teaching of Amy Carmichael

Recently one of my daughters read the YWAM biography about the life of Amy Carmichael. Throughout my life I have also been impacted by this lady’s devotion to Christ, and I desire to continue to learn more about her in the years to come.

On today’s episode of the podcast I am sharing a little from one of Amy’s books called Fragments that Remain, and I pray that your heart will be strengthened as we glean from Amy’s wisdom.

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:

Our God is with Us

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.

Talking About the Why of Homeschooling

Hello Friends, on today’s episode of the podcast I talk about why my husband and I have chosen the path of homeschooling for our seven children.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 97: Talking About Why We Homeschool

Our core motivation for homeschooling is family discipleship, and in this episode I share how we are attempting to train our children for Christ through all of our living and learning.

If there was ever a time to fully embrace this model of teaching our children diligently all through the day and night, now is the time. We are raising children in a time of great moral confusion, and we need to be equipping our young people to be able to stand against the tides of evil in their generation. Homeschooling is not the Savior, but my husband and I believe that it is a powerful tool to lead our children in the truth and give them a vision for kingdom-minded priorities.

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.
