Put On Your Oxygen Mask First

colleen hammond Put On Your Oxygen Mask First! with Colleen Hammond

Who has time to get dressed in the morning — let alone worry about looking amazing — just to homeschool, cook, and clean toilets? I mean, we’re not leaving home anyway, right? But don’t you feel better about yourself when you know you look good? Studies have shown that when we feel good about ourselves, our self-confidence soars, we treat those around us better, and others treat us with more respect. Isn’t that what we want to teach our children, too? Self-worth and confidence are modeled behaviors! As mom’s, we tend to take care of everyone else first and put ourselves last. But even the airlines know that we are more effective helping others when we take care of ourselves, first! Everyone wins!

Great prize – enter up to October 31st – here 

Colleen has developed a simple, proven process that every woman can master that will get you looking amazing in only a few minutes a day! Are you ready to look and feel your best every single day of your life?

Making Your Homeschool One Of A Kind

making your homeschool uniqueMaking Your Homeschool One OF A Kind

Special Mommy Jammies Night presentation with your host, Felice Gerwitz,

and special guest Jeanette Whittaker

Homeschooling is never a cookie-cutter style operation. You and your children are one-of-a-kind treasures. But it’s tempting sometimes to look around at your homeschooling friends and feel that you just don’t quite measure up. Other moms are so much more organized, their children behave better, their schooling seems much more successful…the list goes on and on.

Veteran homeschooling mom Jeanette Whittaker will share a timely reminder that you homeschool for an audience of One. He created you and your children. He has called you for a distinct purpose and is using you to lead your children to follow Him.

As we begin the homeschooling year, it’s enjoyable to ask other parents what they’ll be doing this year; but we still want to avoid the pitfalls that derail us and keep our eyes on the path where God is leading.

Mrs. Jeanette Whittaker, a homeschooling mom since 2002, enthusiastically encourages other parents in their personal homeschool journey. Building on the heart for learning which she cultivated as a child and youth (her Mom was her teacher), she has inspired homeschool students to explore, think, search Scripture, write, create mini-dramas out of their lessons, and realize that all learning is an extension of the character of God. She is grateful for the influence of her parents and family, her godly husband of 20 years, and her two teenage children.

Raising Children with Good Character

Raising Children with Good CharacterSpecial Guest – LaToya Edwards

Raising Children with Good Character

Charlotte Mason said, “The habits of the child produce the character of the man.” Raising children with godly character is a very important task. It takes a lot of patience and training from parents and a lot of trial and error for the kids. LaToya will share how good books and stories have helped her children grow in character.

 

Bio: LaToya is a recovering perfectionist and control freak that loves old movies, good books, and strawberry Häagen-Dazs® ice cream. She traded in a law degree to homeschool her children and be home full-time to serve her family. Through trials of divorce, depression, death and more she has discovered the freedom that comes in knowing God and understanding His promises so you will be able to have everlasting joy no matter the circumstances and feel safe and secure knowing that God is in control. As a certified life coach, it is LaToya’s desire to encourage and equip other women to do the same. Be sure to visit LaToya on her blog: http://latoyaedwards.net/

Hearing God’s Voice

hearing God's voiceA Special Mommy Jammies Night presentation with featured speaker: Felice Gerwitz

Topic: Hearing God’s Voice – Podcast #29

Yes, I live a very dangerous, on the edge of the cliff kind of life – and you probably agree with a topic like, “Hearing God’s Voice.” How can you know for sure it is God’s voice? How can you live your life in total confidence that you are doing God’s perfect will? How can you relax and let God be the pilot of your life? In this presentation, I will tackle all of these things and more!

Handout for notes: Hearing God’s voice: Mommy Jammies Night – A Few Minutes

 

Show Notes Hearing God’s Voice:

  1. Is it possible to hear God’s voice?
  2. Who is God to you?
  3. How do you prepare your heart to listen to God?
  4. Hearing God
  5. The Challenge

How do you pray?

Look at the Lord’s prayer:

  1. Praising God and acknowledge His Name and His Kingship and His will.
  2. As for forgiveness for our sins against others. Pray for our needs, spiritual or temporal – physical.
  3. Ask for help to forgive others who have hurt us and make an act of will – not feeling to forgive those who have hurt you – so that YOU may heal.
  4. End with a prayer for protection against temptation and sin.

How do you hear God? Many ways! List your own after my list:

  1. Through His inspired, inerrant, infallible Word – The Bible
  2. Through others
  3. Through an answered prayer – those that are asked or unsaid (and God knows our hearts.)
  4. Through a “God-incident” in our lives
  5. Though our five sense
  6. Though our spirit / soul – that is where we sense God

Hearing God & Following His Will:

Add you own to this list:

  1. Faith – grace
  2. Forgiveness
  3. Quiet
  4. Practice
  5. Willingness

Homeschooling our youngsters has its ups and downs, especial when the lesson plans don’t pan out, the children aren’t interested, or when we’re distracted and discouraged.

Brook Wayne is our “Mommy Jammies Night” featured guest and mother of nine who offers her thoughts and gives us hope that, “Yes! You, mom, are enough!”

Brook is co-author with her husband, Israel of: “Pitchin’ a Fit! : Overcoming Angry & Stressed-out Parenting” to be released March 2016.
