    Scripture Memory for Kids with Hunter Beless

    Scripture Memory for Kids with Hunter Beless

    Today Hunter Beless and I talk about why Scripture memory is important for ourselves and our children! It is more than just for the sake of brain growth it is one of the best ways to meditate on Scripture!

    Hunter’s picture book “Read it, See it, Say it, Sing it” helps make principles of Scripture memory clear and practical, but reminds us that the most important job of the Bible is to point to Jesus and grow in relationship with Him through it.


    You can order Hunter's Book here. Find her on Instagram. Or listen to Journey Women Podcast here!

    Add Diverse Cultural Experience to Your Homeschool - with Nicole Cottrell

    Add Diverse Cultural Experience to Your Homeschool - with Nicole Cottrell

    Have you wondered how to add more than European cultural education to your homeschool?

    While curating our favorite book lists I realized how little variety there was in what we were loving. Since then I've been making it my mission to change that for our family! Nicole Cottrell has been such an amazing person to turn to for book lists that include varied cultural experiences in our children's feast of beautiful education!!

    We are so blessed when we look at the strengths and gifts that people bring to the human experience and I can’t wait to read the book she recommended in our homeschool!

    You can find Nicole at Stories of Color on Instagram or her website

    How does it Look to Embrace Your Life? with Elizabeth Woodson

    How does it Look to Embrace Your Life? with Elizabeth Woodson

    Has life turned out like you thought it would? For some of us our paths look wildly different than we thought they would.


    Elizabeth Woodson talks us through her book “Embrace your Life”. Sometimes life takes a turn we didn’t anticipate and we can spend time wishing we were in a previous stage or the next years of life instead of enjoying and truly living where we are at! How can we celebrate our wins? Grieve our losses? And truly embrace the life that we are living today right now without zoning out falling into mindlessness?


    You can find Elizabeth Woodson's website resources we discuss at elizabethwoodson.net or on her Instagram

    How to Get the House Clean with Little Kids! with Heidi Marie

    How to Get the House Clean with Little Kids! with Heidi Marie

    How do you get the house clean when little people are "undoing it" faster than you can get things done? Today I laughed until I cried with Heidi as we talked about tasks around the house. We have 7 boys and a girl between the two of us and keeping things "done" isn't easy.

    A few months ago she said, “Do one thing that can not easily be undone.” and it’s changed the way I clean my house but also put words to something that has been the framework of housekeeping for me!

    Clutter cleaning can be done pretty quickly if the deep cleaning framework is already there!


    You can find Heidi here on Instagram. I highly recommend her stories!

Real and encouraging

Elizabeth is so down to earth and wonderful at asking questions! She really dives right into getting to know her guests and allows them to share encouragement through effortless conversations with her… and we get to listen in! Thankful for this momma who wants to encourage all of us who are in the thick of it to keep our eyes and hearts heavenward even when—especially when, our hands are very VERY full!
