Show Notes:

Whether you are a teen or a parent or a homeschool grad, this show is for you!

Do you struggle with guilt and condemnation?

Do you compare yourself to others and feel like you don’t measure up?

Do you sing songs about Jesus, yet not feel any kind of emotion?

Do you think it’s hard to live the Christian life?

One of my new favorite songs is by Cody Carnes, who is married to Kari Jobe by the way.

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
Sorrow may come in the darkest night
But the cross has the final word

There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher
There’s nothing greater than the name of Jesus
All the honor, all the power
All the glory to the name of Jesus

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
Evil may put up its strongest fight
But the cross has the final word

There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher
Nothing greater than the name of Jesus
All the honor, all the power
All the glory to the name of Jesus

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
The Savior has come with the morning light
The cross has the final word

What is that final word?

Well, let’s talk about the cross and how it impacts your life today.

The Sin Problem

Holiness of God

Nature of God vs. Nature of Sin

Addiction to Sin

Consequences of Sin

The Soul that Sins will Die

The Heart of God

God’s Love & Compassion

Choosing to Satisfy His Own Wrath with His Own Son

Loving His Enemies

The Decision of Christ

Do the Will of the Father

Give Up His Life

Take On the Sins of the Whole World

Experience the Wrath of God.

“It is Finished”

The Triumph & Victory of Christ

Death Defeated

Wages of Sin Paid

Power of Sin Broken

Resurrection Power

The Power of the Cross

We died with Christ

Our sinful nature is dead!

It is against our nature to sin.

When we sin, we can confess our sin and receive forgiveness.

The Christian life is about surrender; not effort.

Grace saved us & Grace enables us to live for Him.

The Cross’s Final Word

You are Forgiven!

Your Debt is Paid!

You are Free from Sin!

You have an Advocate with the Father!

You are Lavished with Love!

No Greater Love than This that a Man would Lay Down His Life for His Friends!

“Just one more, Lord, please, just one more” Hacksaw Ridge.

He has begun a good work in you and will carry it on to completion

You have been entrusted with His glorious message!

Introduction~ Victory over Adversity~ 1

Welcome my friends! I am excited to be starting on this podcasting adventure with you!

Just the facts ma’am… My name is Heather Laurie. I have a wonderful husband Chris Laurie. We have 5 children and 3 angels.

I have homeschooled our children through their entire education, K through graduation. Right now we are outnumbered by pre-teens and teens but loving this phase in life.

When Chris and I met and fell in love in boot camp we were not saved. As we faced the stillbirth of our second child a beautiful daughter we began searching for God in a meaningful way. Through that harsh adversity we were saved. We also found a church community and a homeschooling community. The Lord was there waiting for us to call out and then He blessed us abundantly.. to this day those blessings continue all my children have a real and meaningful relationship with God. In part due to our loss of precious Sarah.

I know what it is like to homeschool with children that have special needs. Thus my blog/speaking/writing life at specialneedshomeschooling.com I also know what it is like to be mom with a chronic illness. We have a disease called mitochondrial disease and it affects the kids and I. There is no cure or treatment at this time. There is HOPE!

My friends I have been in hospice and spent months in the hospital. I have watched my child struggle with the simplest things like colors and regressed to ‘lose’ the alphabet 3 times. I have also watched those same lovely children become young adults and far exceed doctor’s statistics.

My children have given their heart and soul to Jesus. Sure we struggle and life can be tough while going through storms but I know there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I know together we can knit a community together that supports and encourages us on to be stronger and rely upon the Lord for Victory!

Political Lessons Homeschoolers Must Teach

The election, whether you’re pleased or disappointed by the results, has prompted us as homeschoolers to consider if there is anything we still need to teach our children. In this episode, I share poltical lessons I will be sure to teach my children — lessons I encourage you to teach yours as well.

Church or Not Church – Make The Distinction! MBFLP 134

MBFLP 134 - Church or Not Church - H

 

The Bible is clear about how a church should be led and managed. What does that tell us about other institutions in our life, though? Is it appropriate to look for the same level of doctrinal agreement, Christian character, and other qualifications, when we consider events and organizations and movements which are not directly related to the church? This episode we explore a bit about the distinctions between CHURCH and NOT CHURCH – and recognizing that there is a difference between “not Christian” and “anti-Christian”, and that may make a difference in how we interact with the world outside our sanctuaries!

Destination: Inspiration Episode 12- Who was Maya Angelou? A Tribute to The Phenomenal Woman

Hey, Friends!

If you can get through the echo (I’m working on it- LOL)  in my latest podcast, I know you’ll be blessed to hear the words of this phenomenal woman, Maya Angelou. I’m sure you’ll find her life and words inspirational for you and your homeschool! Scroll below for some inspiring video footage of Maya Angelou. Click the little grey arrow at the bottom to listen!

Outside of scripture, my grandma, my fourth grade teacher Mr. Freesman, and my friend/ fellow poet and co-author of my new Words With Wings Poetry Curriculum,  De, Maya Angelou is the biggest inspiration for my words. Ever.

What is the craziest is how she had SO many roles- like me. I guess it’s the life of a poet. Or a Renaissance Woman. Funny, a friend gave my that title of Renaissance Woman years ago, and it’s just stuck. Felt right. After I visited her website after her passing, diving deeper into Who Was Maya Angelou, I see those words. Right there. Global Renaissance Woman.

Here’s a screenshot and link straight to her page.

Screen Shot 2014-05-29 at 6.23.01 PM

 

While my words are not known globally  like hers, I pray that someday they will impact as many as hers did. And I pray you find a bit of inspiration on today’s poetic tribute to the life of a truly Phenomenal Woman, Maya Angelou. Global Renaissance Woman.

As promised, I’ll share some of the links I mention in the podcast below. Here’s a link and a free download to the poem, #Reset  I read and wrote just a few weeks before her passing.

Blessings for your journey, and may your words take flight.

An except from the 1993 Inaugural Poem of President Bill Clinton, On the Pulse of Morning:

(Courtesy, William J. Clinton Presidential Library.)

“Here on the pulse of this new day

You may have the grace to look up and out

And into your sister’s eyes,

Into your brother’s face, your country

And say simply

Very simply

With hope

Good morning.”
