    Finding Courage in the Midst of Storms (Podcast 351)

    Finding Courage in the Midst of Storms (Podcast 351)

    I've noticed that there seems to be an increase in the number of trials and afflictions that many faithful Christians I know are experiencing. Our family is no different.

    Today I'm sharing a bit of an update on our family along with some encouragement to find courage in the midst of storms.

    Biblical Submission; The Hot Potato (Episode 350)

    Biblical Submission; The Hot Potato (Episode 350)

    Biblical submission are words that can bring up a range of emotions and opinions because many of us have heard or experienced the abuses that have surrounded this topic. 

    As believing women who strive to walk in obedience to God and do our best to live out His standards in our home it’s essential that we have a biblical definition of submission, one that is informed by God’s word and not the culture and we must remember that the family is instituted by God and therefore HE is the only one who gets to define it.

    I’ve invited Wes Johnson to join us again because I knew I could trust him to be willing to tackle this topic and do so from an uncompromisingly biblical perspective.

    The Importance of Nurturing Sibling Relationships (Podcast 347)

    One of the things I think most of us don't expect when we start to homeschool is the amount of time we will spend navigating our kids' relationships with each other. It can often feel like an obstacle to getting "real" schoolwork done, but the truth is that learning to have healthy relationships IS an essential part of our kids' education!

    Today I'm going to share why it's so important to nurture sibling relationships in our home.

Absolute must listen for Christian homeschool mamas!

I LOVE that this podcast has so much practical advice and tips for mothering and homeschool. It always challenges and encourages me and leaves me with things I can seek the Lord about while also sharing practical things I can implement that very day. Sooo thankful for this podcast and the godly women like Durenda who are paving the way for us new/ younger mamas!
