    Take the Stairs with LaNissir James

    It’s so easy for us to want what comes without effort— but the blessing is found when we work through what we have. My friend LaNissir James is here today and we’re talking about the challenges of balancing academics and faith, the importance of nurturing a strong marriage while homeschooling, and the significance of intentional parenting and creating a Christ-centered home. What’s best isn’t easy. We have to make a habit of taking the stairs!

    Homeschooling is Discipleship with Leslie Nunnery

    Homeschooling is Discipleship with Leslie Nunnery

    It’s easy to get lost in the day to day tasks of childrearing and homeschooling, but it’s critical we remember what our goals really are for our children. Family discipleship, with a focus on the hearts and character of our children, is so much more important than the academics— more rewarding also. This is your shot in the arm to keep doing the hard thing. It’s worth it! 

    During the Happy Hour extended podcast we’re giving direction for homeschooling through the high school years and highlighting priorities as you wrap up the homeschool years with your children.

    Mailbox Monday: Fixing Our Mind on Truth

    Mailbox Monday: Fixing Our Mind on Truth

    There are more than several situations to be frustrated about right now, but the Bible is clear on what we are to do in troubled times. I’m talking about that and answering a question from a listener whose daughter in law isn’t calling her and her husband Mom and Dad. 

    If you’re a subscriber, stick around for Happy Hour and we’ll be talking about a really ridiculous situation where an elderly woman was fired for not using people’s pronouns and the really sad situation at the southern border.  

    At the end of all of it, we fix our mind on truth.

Off the Bench

Thank you Heidi and team for such a wonderful podcast. Hearing you and your guests helps me have that sense of belonging we all desire and need in the Church. Unity in Christ and carrying out the race here in America well. Having three young kids and planning to homeschool, Heidi is an amazing resource and feels much like a mentor. Maranatha dear one.

Love Heidi!

Love that Heidi takes a stance and then stands her ground. Her Christ-focused approach to families, church, the culture, all of it. Keep it up!

Thankful!

Heidi St. John has, and is continuing to keep me grounded in God’s truth. She was my first podcast several years ago and she never gets old!
