Mary and Martha and Keeping It Simple// ep 154

Our world certainly glorifies the Martha lifestyle- busy, busy, busy- take a look at Pinterest and Instagram and we see a world of Marthas. Those who can cook, sew, decorate, throw parties, and do it all with perfection are pretty much considered the epitome of modern-day success in homemaking and womanhood. You don’t see many Pinterest posts of a woman, completely oblivious to how the “photo” looks because she is sitting at her Savior’s feet. Maybe her hair is askew, her makeup absent, but she has a glow about her that comes from being at his feet. And it is more beautiful than any photo.

In a world that focuses on busyness and a picture-perfect life, Jesus tells us that Mary chose the better. And even more importantly, it will not be taken away from her. Let’s talk about how we can live more simply when we live like Mary.

“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.”

Transformed By the Word//ep153

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

Have you allowed God’s Word to transform your life? Or is your time in the Word merely to check it off your list or to do your Bible study “homework?” Do you go to His Word with an agenda in your mind of what you’d like Him to tell you? Or do you truly want to get to know who God is?

God’s Word is living and active and powerful and He will transform our way of thinking and in turn our actions and behaviors. He will transform our lives from the inside out.

Often we make God so small and our own little lives so big, when in reality, if we focused on truly getting to know our great and majestic God in His Word, we would fall down on our faces. We would take our eyes off of our little daily struggles and truly get to know the One who created us.


Join me today as I talk about how God has completely transformed my life and be encouraged.

Giving It All Up to Follow Him: The Family Behind Schoolhouse Rocked Feature Film // ep152

Imagine if we all truly walked the walk…living out our faith in very real and tangible ways? Leaving everything behind to follow God’s calling on your life? To truly listen to God and do what He says…even if it means giving up everything?

I am beyond excited about today’s podcast to introduce you to a family that is doing just that.

Yvette Hampton and her family left their comfy lifestyle in California three years ago, sold their home and most of their belongings, and hit the road to answer the calling on their life. As a homeschooling family with a husband/father who had worked in Hollywood, they knew that God was calling them to make a feature-length film about homeschooling and they have been working on this project ever since.

Today I am talking to Yevette about what it is like to truly simplify by getting rid of all your stuff, life on the road, focusing on God and His calling, and also all about this AMAZING movie that they have produced. You will be inspired and encouraged.

Join me! You will love Yvette as much as I do!

Homeschooling High School and Parenting Teens: Have No Fear • ep 151

I never, ever thought I’d homeschool, let alone homeschool high school! And here we just graduated our first. I remember thinking the teens years were something to dread and homeschooling high school would be an impossibility. To my pleasant surprise, not only did we survive, we thrived. It is a joy to see my young adult children now walking in truth and launching into the world.

Parents don’t fear the teen years. God is in control and you can homeschool high school with joy!
