Caroling Your Neighbors! – MBFLP 151

Hal and Melanie 1400x1400
In a culture that’s increasingly secular – and hostile – there is one time and place where you can not only share the Gospel with strangers, you can sing it at top of your lungs – and they smile and applaud! That’s just one of the reasons we love caroling. This episode, we’ll give you a Biblical rationale for caroling (yes we will!) and lots of very practical ways to organize your own caroling party!

Beloved Mess – HIRL Episode 109

Free homeschool podcast interview with Kimm Crandall, author of the book Beloved MessTired of trying to make your family seem as if you’ve got it all together? Exhausted by external standards that seem unreachable or even crushing? 

The Christian life is not about being less of a mess. It’s about admitting that we need to be saved from trying to clean ourselves up. Guest Kimm Crandall frees you to live with the assurance that God loves you right here, right now. He’s not waiting for you to clean up your act before you’re worthy to come to him. In fact, he wants you to stop trying to fix the mess and allow him to wash it away.

Beloved Mess is an episode that is both thoughtful and healing to our weary, worn out souls.

Jesus vs. Santa – HIRL Episode 79

Free homeschool podcast discussing Christmas and Santa ClausDoes Santa have any place in the celebration of Christmas? If you listen to some homeschoolers talk about it, event the mention of Santa Claus associated with Christmas will land you in the “loner’s corner” of your co-op. Yet, others celebrate good ol’ jolly Santa Claus right next to the baby Jesus. There is also a third category of homeschoolers (like Fletch) who enjoy stirring the pot and cracking off remarks like: “You know…if you rearrange the letters in Santa…it spells S-A-T-A-N.” Fletch can be cheeky that way!

Where does that leave us?

Should we allow Santa to have a seat at the Christmas table or should he and Rudolph be hidden high up on the shelf with that pesky elf?

With sleighbells ringing and all the yuletide they can muster, Fletch and Kendra sit down for an open, honest discussion about the celebration of Christmas and answer the question: What should Christian homeschooling parents do with Santa Claus at Christmas? Tune in and join them for a fun and lively debate on this edition of HomeschoolingIRL.
