Homeschool Organization Tips

Hello Friends! Our family recently turned over another grade level in our homeschool. Since we school year around we often advance to new grades at odd times of the year.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 110: Helpful Tips for Homeschool Organization

This year I have put more focus than usual on homeschool room organization, and on today’s podcast episode I share some of the things that I have found helpful to us in our homeschool journey. I hope it will be a blessing for you!

I have to admit that organization is not my gifting, but just because something does not come natural to me does not mean that I cannot learn to do better. So, I would love to hear from you. What strategies do you use to keep all the things organized in your homeschool? Please leave comments and reach out to me on my social media as well; I would love to hear from you!

While I think that a designated space to keep all things pertaining to homeschool is nice, it absolutely is not a necessity for successful homeschooling. Whether one homeschools in a schoolroom or around the kitchen table, the most important thing is to keep our focus on “Seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” Matthew 6:33 May the Lord help us to keep our eyes looking upward and our gaze set on the ministry the Lord has given us within the walls of our own homes. Thank you so much for listening to this podcast, and may the Lord bless you until we meet again!

The Lord our Protector

Welcome back to the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast available through this sound bar and also over at iTunes. Today we are talking about God being our refuge, protector, and strong tower during current events happening in our nation.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 109: The Lord Our Protector

I hope this episode will be a strength to your heart and a blessed reminder that if God is for us, who can be against us. There is much trouble abounding, and yet God has not fallen off of His throne. He sits exalted in the heavens and is still Sovereign over our lives. We can trust in Him and look up fixing our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen.

These troubling times are an opportunity for us to remember that this world is not our home and to live intentionally in light of eternity. I always love to hear from my listeners, so please reach out. You can connect with me in multiple ways:

Walking in the Love of Christ

Walking in love towards others does not always come easy. As mothers we need the grace of God to help us show love through the disturbances, messes, and irritations that are part of daily family life. We need God’s love extended through us to help us lovingly do the hard work of training and working on character issues with our children.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 106: Walking In The Love Of Christ

On today’s episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast we are discussing the great love of God towards us. When we understand the magnitude of the love we have been given, it will be easier to extend patience and love to those around us.

Discussing Motherhood with Valerie Elliot Shepard

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 105: Discussion on Motherhood with Valerie Shepard

Hello Friends, I hope that you were able to hear the podcast episode last week where I talked to Valerie Elliot Shepard, daughter to missionaries Jim and Elisabeth Elliot. If you did not hear that episode, I encourage you to go back and listen. It was so interesting to hear Valerie share about the love story of her parents and God’s faithfulness in their lives.

This week I am shifting gears and talking with Valerie about the holy and privileged calling of motherhood. Valerie is the mother to eight grown children and eight grandchildren. As you can imagine she has much seasoned advice to share, and I know you are going to be blessed!

I encourage you to check out the many books Valerie’s mother Elisabeth Elliot wrote and definitely to pick up your copy of Valerie’s new book “Devotedly” It is a gem of a book telling the story of her parents’ courtship and of their devotion to God and to one another. You can find Devotedly at http://devotedlybook.com and also on Amazon.

Did you know that Elisabeth Elliot used to have a radio program called Gateway to Joy? You can listen to some of those episodes through this link: https://bbn1.bbnradio.org/english/home/all-programs/gateway-to-joy-elisabeth-elliot/

I am sharing these books by Elisabeth Elliot and Valerie Shepard as part of Amazon’s affiliate link program:

Truths from the Teaching of Amy Carmichael

Recently one of my daughters read the YWAM biography about the life of Amy Carmichael. Throughout my life I have also been impacted by this lady’s devotion to Christ, and I desire to continue to learn more about her in the years to come.

On today’s episode of the podcast I am sharing a little from one of Amy’s books called Fragments that Remain, and I pray that your heart will be strengthened as we glean from Amy’s wisdom.

The State of Our Quarantine

Hello my Friends, here we are entering another week of quarantine, and I thought it might be interesting to record an episode sharing what we have been up to during this unprecedented time of being quarantined at home.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 102: The State Of Our Quarantine

I hope that you enjoy hearing about our little farmstead and the projects we have been keeping ourselves busy with, and I hope that the Scriptures I share will be a strength to your heart. I feel like my own heart can easily grow faint during this time of so much uncertainty, but I am finding that it is God’s Word that stabilizes my emotions and helps me to think rightly. I encourage you to be in the Word and renewing your minds with the truths of God’s eternal promises. We need those assurances especially in times like these.

May the Lord grant us the grace to wait patiently upon Him and to be a light to those who see us and may ask the reason for the hope that lies within us. Enjoy the extra time with your family, and I would love to hear from you. What are you doing to stay busy during these days, weeks, and possibly months of staying home? May the Lord bless you with His grace and peace.

I would love to keep in touch with you. Here are some places you can find me:

What to do with Little People While Homeschooling

Hi my friends! I have been parenting now for over nineteen years, and we have always homeschooled our seven children. This means that I have walked through many years of trying to teach older children with younger siblings in the mix. There have been many days of pulling my hair out as I tried to find workable solutions, and while I have not mastered the art of a perfectly run homeschool day, I have gleaned some ideas that have been helpful.

I recently put together a video to share some ideas for how to give our younger children the purposeful direction they need which helps minimize the chaos and messes that little ones can so quickly get themselves into. I hope that this is helpful. Remembering that the little years are just a season that passes all too quickly can help tune up our perspective on those hard days. I’m on the tail end of the little years with my youngest two, but in this video I share from things I have learned over time.

A Solid Rock in Troubled Times

Hello Friends, I hope that this post finds you healthy and trusting the Lord through these unprecedented days of this pandemic. I recorded this episode right before everything broke out with this pandemic, but it is full of Biblical encouragement to stable our hearts through the challenges our world is currently facing. I hope this episode is an encouraging reminder that our foundation is in Christ alone. Regardless of how our society may be turned upside down right now, we have a sure footing upon the solid rock of Jesus Christ.
