Concerns for the Times

Hello my friends and welcome back to this week’s episode of the “Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast.” Today I am talking about my personal concerns for the times we find ourselves living in. Additionally I will be addressing my grief over how many young people are walking away from the faith.

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 118: Concerns For the Times

This is a serious issue; the lure of the world and the tides of evil are strong. Now is the time for Christian parents to be crying out to God to do a mighty work in our homes as we pray for true gospel transformation in the hearts of our young people.

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.  II Timothy 3:1-5

Steadfast Women

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 114: Remaining Steadfast Through Trials

The culture surrounding us tells us to be strong, determined, tough women. Even much of Christian culture shouts this message. Sadly these messages are often referring to being strong in our own strength rather than putting on the full armor of God and allowing His strength to flow through us. Remember Paul said, “Not I but Christ.”

I do not like the world’s philosophy of women being strong, competitive, and tough. Instead I like the word steadfast. I want to be a steadfast woman. I want the strength of the Lord to flow through me so that I have strength of character and steadfastness for the journey. Basically I want to stay the course and run the race well. Certainly that ability and strength only comes through Christ in me.

This is the topic of today’s Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast. You can listen here or hop over to iTunes where you can subscribe to the weekly podcast.

In a world of unrest and uncertainty I am encouraged to remember that it is He who will hold us fast. As we walk with Him day by day, He will sustain us and give us the steadfastness we need to finish well.

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:

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:

Devotedly with Valerie Elliot Shepard

Jim and Elisabeth

Hello my Friends! I am so thrilled that you are joining me for this very special episode of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast!

Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast 104: Devotedly – Interview With Valerie Shepard

On this episode I have a very special guest. Valerie Elliot Shepard is the daughter to Jim and Elisabeth Elliot missionaries to Ecuador. Valerie was so kind to share the story of how God brought her parents together and used them to engage in kingdom work for His glory. It was a joy to hear from Valerie, and I know you are going to be greatly blessed!

Elisabeth and Valerie

This story is a powerful testimony of what God can do through those whose hearts are fully devoted to Him. You will hear how Jim and Elisabeth were devoted first of all to their God and then to each other.

Valerie also shares about her new book “Devotedly” where she tells the story of the courtship of her parents. The book contains many of the letters they wrote back and forth to each other before they were married, and I was so impressed at the level of spiritual maturity they possessed at such young ages.

You can check out the Devotedly website here: http://devotedlybook.com

I so appreciate Val taking the time to share on the podcast, and the exciting thing is that she will be back with me again next week for a different conversation about motherhood. Val is the mother of eight children and has a lot of wisdom to share from her years of raising her own family. I hope you will come back next week for that conversation!

I am going to link to some books by Elisabeth Elliot below as well as Valerie’s beautiful book Devotedly. I am currently reading through Devotedly and it is a stunningly beautiful book that I am really enjoying! Do you have any favorite books by Elisabeth Elliot? I would love to hear about your favorites!

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.
