Understanding and Overcoming Anxiety with Dan Marcone (Podcast 138)

June 22nd, 2020

Every single human on the face of the planet has experienced anxiety at one time or another. Many of us struggle with it on a regular basis, including me. I thought it was about time we all got some professional help!

My guest today is a licensed mental health counselor and even more importantly, he is a Believer.

Science (originating with God) and faith are interwoven, but when those can be applied to practical life and equip us to more effectively walk out our God-given ministries (specifically our ministry at home), it's an incredibly powerful and beautiful thing!

Grab your pen and some paper because you will want to take notes!

Ways Husbands Can Support Their Homeschooling Wives (Podcast 137)

June 15th, 2020

It can be challenging for husbands to know exactly how to best support their homeschooling wives,. My husband and I thought we would share our own story and important principles to keep in mind that will help direct how you can best support your wives!

 

  • Things to keep in mind that God says in his word are important:
  • 1 Peter 3:7-In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.
  • Ephesians 5:25-For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her

Moms, Are You Being Led or Driven (Podcast 132)

May 25th, 2020

There are many unique pressures that are part of this homeschooling journey. The stresses are sometimes overwhelming, but as believers, we need to ask ourselves if we are being driven or led?

God often refers to His people as sheep. Have you ever been around sheep? A few things you should know: they can NOT be driven, they have to be led. If you try to drive them (come up behind them and force them a certain direction), they lose their minds and scatter. They will also lose trust in the shepherd.

God does not drive us. Ever. He is a gentle shepherd that leads, so if you are feeling driven, I can tell you that is NOT God.

How to Start Homeschooling Without Getting Overwhelmed (Podcast 131)

May 20th, 2020

Parents who are considering homeschooling can easily become overwhelmed by all the information out there and that is why I thought it was essential to offer this resource to help parents prioritize their steps as they consider homeschooling. 

Some of you haven’t done school at home until the quarantine and this is another reason I wanted to offer this conversation. You need to understand that distance learning is NOT the same thing as homeschooling. Actually, I think it’s often far more stressful in so many ways than choosing to homeschool. When we homeschool, we get to fine-tune our kids’ learning to what works best for THEM (and us). We can arrange their days to give them an opportunity to be kids, to experience a healthy childhood, to learn things in a way that works for them and AS THEY ARE READY.

You don’t have to be an expert in education or other people’s kids, you simply need to be an expert in YOUR kids.

It’s a commonly accepted fact that if someone spends 10,000 hours on something, they are considered an “expert” in that field. 

Guess what? By the time your child is 6 years old, you will have spent an average of 16,000 hours with your child. That makes YOU an expert on your child! 

With that in mind, listen in to my conversation with Vicki Bentley, another veteran homeschooling mom, and find encouragement along with simple, doable action steps you can take to start homeschooling your kids!

An Urgent Message of Encouragement for Christian Moms (Podcast 130)

May 19th, 2020

PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR MOM FRIENDS!

I’m Durenda Wilson. I’ve been a wife for almost 31 years and a mom for 29 years. I have eight children and 6 grandchildren. I have a word for moms that I think is of the utmost importance.

Our world is quickly changing. There are many things that are out of our control and downright frightening, BUT I want to speak right now to your mom heart:

As an older mom, I have experienced various crises in my life and learned so much from those, but I will admit that I’ve never seen anything quite like this. As I have prayed and prayed and prayed, God has made something very clear to me that I want to convey to you: In spite of everything that’s happening....

YOUR ROLE AS A MOM HAS NOT CHANGED. (You can listen or read the rest of the post here: https://durendawilson.com/an-urgent-message-of-encouragement-for-christian-moms-podcast-130/)
