Living From the Spirit and Not the Flesh // ep 160

Do we really trust God and believe His every word? Do we say we trust Him and want to be in His will, but really want our own outcome? When we live from the Spirit and not the flesh, we have the freedom to know that God is in control, and no matter what the outcome, we are where He wants us. And when we operate out of a place where the Spirit controls us and not the flesh, it will affect every single part of our lives. How you treat people. The decisions you make. The thoughts you have in your mind. Everything is an outflow of your relationship with Him.

“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.”

Homeschooling (and Raising!) a Houseful: How to Survive the Early Years and Thrive in the Teen Years

Today I am talking about homeschooling a houseful and how to survive the early years so that you can thrive the teen years! Yes, we love the older years! Even if you aren’t a homeschooler, much of the encouragement today will apply to anyone who has children.

There were certainly some difficult seasons with a whole bunch of littles that I didn’t know how we would ever make it-but we did. And I am so thankful to the Lord for Him leading us. We just need to shift our thinking and realize this is a journey and a process, and not an instant result. There are so many ways to build foundations early on and then see your family thrive as you grow!

How Do God’s Purposes Fit in With the “American Dream?”// ep157

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

Today we are talking about true success. Are we pursuing the American Dream and the ability to pursue opportunities and achievements, or are we pursuing God wherever He leads? Are we being productive in our pursuits for our own comforts or are we being productive in things of the Lord?

Let’s talk about how God’s purposes for our lives fit in with the American Dream today.
