Homeschooling Through the Holidays • Podcast Ep 71

 

It’s the most wonderful time of year! Or is it? Are you starting to feel overwhelmed at the thought of homeschooling and trying to finish your Christmas to-do list? Well, today I am talking about eliminating the stress of the season by incorporating Christmas into your homeschool. This is the time of year we should be anticipating our Savior, not swamped in stuff.

Some ideas talked about in this episode:

  • Unit studies- Special studies for Christmas ( Colonial Christmas unit study, studying Jesus’ birth, etc.)
  • Letting kids address Christmas card envelopes or write notes
  • Practicing random acts of kindness
  • Delegating by incorporating your children into all the “to-do’s:- baking, wrapping, etc.

Some posts to inspire you:

**NEW** LOW PRICE FOR RETREAT TICKETS! Register today. Space is Limited!

This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone.  I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.

Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.

Simply...Living For Him

An Upside Down World

The world is upside down. The culture is in a downward spiral. I can hardly catch my breath at the headlines these days.

So much darkness. So much immorality. I can hardly even grasp it.

Yes, the world is upside down. But God is still on the throne. In His perfect place.

In times that are changing quickly from one moment to the next, right there in the midst of it, God stays the same.

When the world is broken, He can restore.

When times are uncertain, He is for certain.

When the world says anything goes, He is the unchanging Truth.

When the world is dark, He is the Light.

When the world strives for more and better and new, He is enough.

“and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”

Colossians 2:10New King James Version (NKJV)

Oh, thank you Lord, that you are enough. Because there are times when I can hardly stand to read another headline, and my emotions take over. But in the moment, I remember, this world is lost and you are the only HOPE. In a world that seeks to fill every void and pleasure only to wind up in darkness and sin, You are enough.

If only every human being that was lost could grasp that truth.

YOU are the point of life. You ARE life. You are enough. Without you, humanity is null and void. None of it makes sense.

But with you, every single thing falls into place. 

Oh, my prayer today and tomorrow will forever be- that this world could know you. I know that one day every knee WILL bow, but those who don’t grasp the Truth in the here and now will perish. That is more devasating to me than any headline of today.

We must stand up and realize every single suffering soul out there needs Jesus. There may not be a someday. We only have now to let every single soul know…Jesus is Enough. In fact, He is the ONLY way.

BIG Announcement!

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to announce that our SLFH Retreat tickets are being offered at a LOWER PRICE!

Yes, you read that right. We are actually slashing the price so that MORE ladies can attend!

As many of you know, this is a ministry and we try to keep the cost as low as possible, but we need to cover the cost of the venue, food, and other details. Not to mention the thousands of hours put into the retreat planning.

However, I have been praying for a while to find a way to offer the retreat at a lower rate so it is an option for more women to be a part of this extraordinary event!

**And God answered. Because of some amazing sponsors, we are able to cut the cost of the retreat ticket!**

Right now the cost of a full price retreat ticket is $129 (and early birds snagged them at $99)

*Yet, we are thrilled to announce, you can join us at the SLFH Retreat for just $79.90!! *

We are also changing the ticket to include your catered lunch and Saturday morning continental breakfast as OPTIONAL.**

In the past, food cost was one of the biggest factors in the price, so we are giving YOU the option. If you want to be able to enjoy the retreat for a budget, you do not have to include the meals! You can get a retreat only ticket for $59.95. If you do want to add the meals we will add on catered lunch and breakfast for $29.95 PLUS take an extra $10 off the retreat ticket, meaning your registration will be $49.95! With meals added on the FULL cost is just $79.90!

This whole decision has been covered in prayer and the entire time I just prayed, “Lord let me be in your will. I will do what you want.”

And remarkably, as days went by and I prayed those prayers, funds showed up from various sponsorships!

I am beyond thrilled and in awe of our amazing God.

And the ladies who have registered already will be getting money BACK! Yup! So don’t worry, if you are already registered, you will be refunded the difference!
———-

**This event is about so much more than the retreat itself.** It is sisters in Christ uniting together and linking arms. Long after the event, we continue to grow our friendships through the retreat private Facebook groups. It is truly a blessing to see the ladies pray for each other, connect daily, and honor God in their walk as authentic sisters in Christ.

**So join us this summer as we rest, restore, renew, and simplify and how we can live knowing that Jesus IS Enough!**
