Podcast, Simply...Living For Him

Christmas Peace PLUS what I am Doing to Change My Mindset in Life

Let’s talk about Christmas- the enemy wants nothing more than to take a good thing and distort it. At a time when we are supposed to focus on all that this Advent season is, we make it about stress and busyness and “stuff.” I am sharing how we have dealt with this. And then even out of the Christmas season how I have changed my mindset about the most important things.

“I am grateful for a Spirit-filled woman like Karen who I could discuss homeschooling and life within this new adventure of hers. I have been homeschooling for seven years and felt like I needed some outside perspective for my life and homeschool. I chose Karen because I love her focus on living for Jesus and I desire that for my life. I opted for a one-hour session with her via FaceTime. The hour flew by. The format worked well because Karen came to the hour-long session well-prepared after reviewing a questionnaire I had previously filled out. She listened to my concerns and questions and provided feedback. She prayed for me, encouraged me, challenged me, and gave me some things to think and pray about. Her insight and perspective were such a blessing to me. I highly recommend the consultation! If I ever feel the need to have outside perspective again, I would do another consultation again. It was a great investment for me and my family.”

Christmas Schooling • ep 117

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

Christmas can bring a whole new level of stress to your homeschool year, or a whole new level of JOY! It doesn’t have to be complicated and it doesn’t have to be Pinterest-worthy. I know in our early years of homeschooling, I often felt overwhelmed in December. But I have learned over the years how to naturally make Christmastime meaningful in our homeschool and not stressful.

Homeschooling moms often feel extra pressure this time of year to get it all done. Let’s talk today about changing up your schedule a bit, teaching the things that matter most, and focusing on Jesus this Christmas season.
