    everyday moments | interview with jessica poe

    As homeschool moms...it is easy to get bogged down in the temporal side of our daily lives. We are buried in the homemaking chores of meals, laundry, and soccer games, in addition to language arts lessons, math problems, and sentence diagramming. But, the life of our souls, our home, and our school is made of more than just the temporal. It is composed of spiritual substance, too. How do we not only see, but embrace the spiritual side of ordinary life? How can we find purpose and deep, spiritual meaning in the seemingly menial tasks of our day to day? Author, and homeschool mama, Jessica Poe shares her insights, her thoughts, and her book, Everyday MOMents: Discovering Christ in the Details of Motherhood in a conversation that attempts to answer some of these pivotal questions. This episode will leave you looking for the moments in your Mom Life where the Savior resides, with the beautiful invitation to join Jessica in her MOMent mindset, “In the trivial trial...I look for treasure.”

    navigating special needs | interview with erin mcwilliams

    How can mothers of faith with special needs children nurture growth in their homeschools? How can they apply the message of the restored gospel and invite the savior into their personal story? How can the atonement help and heal both them and their children along our way? Today, Erin McWilliams and I will discuss the heartache paired with the balm of Gilead our Savior offers as we walk our children home to Him.

    tasting the fruit | interview with adelynn eisenach

    It takes trust in Christ, and His direction, to follow this homeschool path composed predominantly of your faith in God and His plan for you. You know intellectually that an education centered on Christ and His Gospel is a valuable gift to give a child of God; still you wonder, will my child turn out alright, will they launch into life as the person they are meant to be, will they be happy and look back fondly at their formative years? 


     


    It is impossible to know the end from the beginning, but it is possible to know our Savior and trust in His plan for us and our family. To help you see a little bit ahead I have invited Adelynn Eisenach, the daughter of a friend of mine, Ali Cannon Eisenach, Editor of The Juvenile Instructor, who you can hear in episode #24. She is the woman behind The Millennial Instructor and author of A Meeting with the Principal. Her daughter Addy has recently graduated from their homeschool and is here to answer a few questions and share her story from the perspective of having “crossed over,” and begun a life of her own with the foundation of her Gospel centered home education. Addy has experienced the fruit of a homeschool education centered on Christ and she has graciously agreed to share that with us today.

    the mantra that saves my homeschool

    the mantra that saves my homeschool

    As we are all getting back to school I have been thinking a lot about structure, and the processes we establish in our homes as we begin a new year. I have learned that homeschooling is the art of implementing and perfecting processes. This is what I find myself doing most often; putting a routine or a habit in place and then tweaking it each time we return to it. The task I perform most frequently while teaching in my home is refining. I am also constantly guiding my children in this process of progress. So, today’s letter is about learning to trust God in our processes. To be still and know. It’s about showing up today, experiencing failure, and having the courage to show up tomorrow and try again. It’s about refinement in the process and giving our minds permission to grow. It’s about believing that because of Christ we can define success as moving forward and doing it better next time.


     


    If you are looking for good resources to know more about growth mindset and grit, I recommend the books:

    how i knew homeschool was right for our family

    how i knew homeschool was right for our family

    But, Meg, how did you know that homeschool was right for your family? I have been hearing this question a lot lately, and I want to take the time to really articulate my thoughts and present them to you formally here. This is a really hot topic right now and a question on the heart of a lot of Latter-day Saint mothers. I think the answer to this question is really not as complex as we tend to make it, and I hope my general response doesn’t sound cliche. I think when sisters ask me this they are hoping that I will provide them a list of pros and cons, allowing them to just check boxes and see if they somehow fit the mold or not. The reality is, that there is no homeschool mold. In fact, homeschool is typically for those who want absolutely nothing to do with a mold.


     


    In today's episode I share the process I went through, the things I have learned since crossing over, and the wonderful things I believe about mothers of Zion in these Latter Days.

Boosts my Soul

Thank you Meg for this beautiful podcast! I love every episode and love following you on Instagram! I was especially touched by listening to the episode on the homeschool mantra you use...I found my heart touched and softened and felt what you said was so true! We can try and try them focus on failure, but hearing “I can do better next time”...powerful fir my children to hear and to remind myself of that too as I often fall short! I loved the tie in to our Savior’s Atonement, indeed we rely on Him to get better! ❤️
