Lost Your Motivation? Turn Around The Winter Doldrums in Your Homeschool Ep 79

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

This is the time of year when I typically lose my motivation and want to throw in the towel. It’s dark, cold, and June may as well be a million years away. But over the years, I have learned many lessons about my attitude and how I can turn around the winter doldrums and continue to thrive in our homeschool. Join me today as I encourage you that Spring is coming! But don’t waste the time now…

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.

We Are Off to a Good Start

Well, another school year has begun. This is our 12th year of homeschooling, and as many of you know, our early years were quite an adjustment. You can listen to my podcast episode about our beginnings here or read about it in my book.

It has been a really good start for our homeschool. We slowly transitioned from the end of August to the first few weeks of September, with no real “first day” of school. I enjoyed the natural process of just easing into a new routine, rather than a concise stop of summer and start of school!

The mornings are cool, and the afternoons are still a bit warm so we are taking every opportunity to be outdoors while we can. We’ve spent time in our woods and riding bikes and skateboards.

Exciting news! My book, Called Home: Finding Joy in Letting God Lead Your Homeschool has been translated into Spanish and is now available for Kindle! Paperback edition is coming soon!

It was truly a blessing how the whole process happened! I am so grateful for those who believed in the book so much, they volunteered their time to translate and edit the book! God’s people are amazing!

We are also in full blown prayer and preparation for our 2018 Retreat. Early bird registration is now open, so don’t delay in registering! We are filling up quicker than previous years. Secure your spot today!

I am so grateful for the journey I have been on this past decade through homeschooling. It has been about so much more than academics. Homeschooling has provided us a lifestyle for us that is such a blessing, and God has taught our family so much on this journey.

I am also pleased to announce that I will be speaking at the NCHE Thrive Conference in the spring! Our whole family will be heading to Winston- Salem for the event!

I will also be speaking in some other locations in the spring and will be sharing those shortly!

Here are some snippets of life around here this late summer/pre-autumn. Follow along on Instagram to see lots of snippets of life out here on Love’s Farm!
