Less Clutter. More Joy. Ep 107

It’s never about the stuff.

Having less stuff or less clutter doesn’t necessarily bring you more joy in and of itself, but what it does is eliminate the things that are hindering you from realizing the true joy you already have!

As Christians, we already have joy in Jesus. We have our ultimate contentment and satisfaction…getting rid of clutter only helps us to see the things that matter most.

My Struggle with Anxiety and How Keeping it Simple is Key• Ep 106

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

Since as long as I can remember, I have had that inner voice that has plagued me. It usually comes in the middle of the night or when my mind starts asking, “What if?…”

Jesus has been the answer for me in every way and today I want to talk about how my struggle with anxiety has changed over the years, how simplifying my life has been key, and how I am learning to let God prevail over the voice of fear.

(Please note this is just my story...everyone has a different story in their struggle. I am simply sharing what has helped me and what my journey has looked like…it is not to say know the answer for your journey…but I hope to encourage you in some way and most importantly, to point you to Jesus.)

Ep 105•Thirteen Years of Homeschooling. What We Have Learned, What Methods We Have Used, and How We Have Changed.

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

We began our thirteenth year of homeschooling this year.  If you know the backstory, then you know this is nothing short of a miracle really. It has been a week full of reflection, and I wrote this earlier in the week:
“No more first days.
No more planning the curriculum.
No more thinking, …”well if this doesn’t work, we can always change it next year…”
There is no next year. This is it.
We have such a story to tell. Our journey has been life-changing and very little has had to do with school. And I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It has been full of ups and downs. But I can’t believe this chapter is closing.”
Read the rest here.

Homeschool Methods, Lessons, and Changes

Today on the podcast I am talking about our methods over the years, what we have learned, and how we have changed. It has sure been a journey. And even though it is nearing the end for my oldest, we have quite a bit more to go…thankfully…I’m not quite ready for it all to be over yet! 😉

Is Your Worldview Shaped by Your Newsfeed or By the Bible? • Ep 104

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

These days it is much too easy to let our worldview be shaped by our Instagram or Facebook feeds. We are bombarded by so many voices, but it is necessary to have God’s voice louder than the world’s. And the way to do that is to listen to Him first and foremost each day. We can’t live out God’s Word if we aren’t reading it. We can’t thirst and hunger for it if we don’t whet our appetite. 

We must look at everything this world offers through the lens of God or we will end up floundering from one thing to the next. It will all sound true unless we are grounded in the only Truth.

So ask yourself, who are you listening to first these days? God or man? Is your worldview more influenced by others or by God’s truth? Join me today as talk about this important subject and we choose to listen to His voice first.
