Family Feud – HIRL Episode 76

HIRL-Episode-76We are in the middle of producing a mini-series of episodes called: Surviving the Holidays. What happens when you are forced to spend time during the holidays with a tricky family situation. On this episode, we focus on what to do when your family does not accept your choices or you struggle with the choices they have made for themselves.

How do we gather with our larger families during the holiday season and represent the love and grace of Jesus? How do we as families learn to celebrate the holidays in the midst of challenging family situations? Can we learn to live as examples of Jesus through the criticism?

Join Fletch and Kendra as they sit down with homeschool mom and very real friend, Cheryl Beech, for a discussion about living a gospel-centered life in the midst of the holidays. Don’t miss this one!

Adoption and the Homeschool Family, Part 2 – HIRL Episode 65

Free homeschool podcast about adoption.On the last episode we sat down with our good friends Jeremy and Michele White to have a serious discussion about adoption. We discussed the beginning of their homeschool journey, why they chose to adopt and the changes that happened as a homeschool family.

On this podcast we dig just a little bit deeper. The White’s second adoption did not end as they had planned. They open up about their story and share their journey with our listeners. This couple is not afraid to get real and share how the gospel allowed them to push through the hardest times in their marriage and family life only to come out of a failed adoption with a heart and a passion for adoption just as strong.

Learn about Kendra’s latest addiction and Fletch’s current favorite podcast on a quick edition of everyone’s favorite quiz show: Q and A with K and A.

Homeschool Planning Made Simple

Homeschool planning for the summer and school year really can be simple when you have a plan in place. This podcast with Susie Doeren and Kim Lopez will save your homeschool sanity!I think I’ve tried every method of homeschool planning available and never found homeschool sanity until I developed my own forms. I call them The Easiest Homeschool Record System and I still think it’s great. However, it takes me quite a bit of time to customize the forms and put them in a binder for each of my five children that I’m still homeschooling.

So when I found the customizable planners from APlaninPlace.net, I was excited. I invited the owners to share how to make summer and school year planning simple with podcast listeners. You won’t be disappointed! You will learn:

  • the importance of planning for the summer months
  • where to start planning and when for the school year
  • the big mistake many homeschool moms make in planning (I’ve definitely made it!)
  • how much time to plan, and more

You’ll also learn about the unique features of the planners available at APlaninPlace.net. If you order a student addition through June 15, 2014, you can order the summer edition for half price. That’s just $5! I have a summer planner for each of my children and I can tell you, that’s a steal! I am not an affiliate with A Plan in Place; I’m just very enthusiastic about these planners that make life easy for homeschooling moms like me.

You can follow a Plan in Place on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Pinterest.

What other advice do you have for homeschool planning?
