Losing Religion, Finding Grace – MBFLP 161


What happens when you do everything right and it turns out terribly, awfully wrong? Do you doubt God’s love? Does it shake your faith? Or does it drive you to a closer walk with your Lord and Savior?

This episode, we talk with Kendra Fletcher, the author of the new book (affiliate link!), Lost & Found: Losing Religion, Finding GraceKendra and her husband Andy Fletcher (hosts of Homeschooling IRL on this network) have seen both sides of the coin, as God brought them from a cold, rule-based religiosity, to a living faith in a living Jesus day by day. You’ll find it both challenging and encouraging as we talk about this crucially important distinction!


Recovering From Legalism – MBFLP 132

Recovering from Legalism V


“For by grace you have been saved through faith … not a result of works. lest any man should boast.” The apostle Paul told us that and we all know it … but somehow, we easily turn to legalism when it comes to living out that salvation we received by grace. How can you avoid this? What can you do about it when you discover you’ve slipped into a hopeless, graceless, checklist spiritual life? This episode (recorded at Yosemite National Park!) we talk about learning to listen to God’s Word and His Spirit – and not relying on man-made additions to God’s actual commandments!

Bullied Into Buying – MBFLP 124

Blog - Bullied into Buying - V

Homeschooling allowed us to raise kids that were not peer-dominated, not bullied, not searching for affirmation and validation from every direction. Hooray! The problem is, we parents were not raised that way, and guess what – often we’re the ones with peer group problems. This episode we take an honest look at the way we can be bullied — or be the bullies — when we’re worrying about what other homeschool parents are thinking …

You Don’t Have to Homeschool ALL of Your Children

Legalism is not required to homeschool. You can homeschool All Some or One of your Children.jpgYES, You can Homeschool all of your children, some of your children, or one of your children. Seek God’s will for your family, your children and their education. If He directs your path to homeschool all, some, one or none of your children, that is the path you should take.

Join me and Kerry Beck from How To Homeschool My Child as we discuss this very topic and how God directed her to homeschool two of her children and send another to school for highschool. She is seeing the fruit of following the Lord’s direction for school and missions trips.

Yes, as always, I got a little off topic, but let the Lord run the show as Kerry and I discussed not only homeschool, but how she and her family have gone on mission trips for many years.

You can find Kerry on her website, YouTubeFacebook, Twitter, G+ and Pinterest.

MBFLP – Transitioning to Adulthood with Israel Wayne

MBFLP Transitioning to Adulthood Israel Wayne


We all want to raise competent, well-prepared adults as our children grow up. Sometimes our best intentions, though, could be interfering with their growth and may result in something quite different than we hope — even a broken relationship with a twenty-something son or daughter. What’s happening, and more importantly, what can do to avoid it? Join us for this interview with author, speaker, and second-generation homeschooler Israel Wayne, on making the transition to adulthood!

I Love Homeschooling, But I’ll Tell You Its Flaws – HIRL Episode 15


On this episode of Homeschooling In Real Life, Fletch and Kendra discuss what it’s like when your homeschool student abandons your family’s faith and lifestyle.
How can this happen in a Christian home where you have created a sheltered homeschool environment? Christian homeschooling is designed to protect our kids. Shouldn’t our children turn out perfect?
To answer that question, we interview a young man who has done that very thing, but here is the best part: after being raised in a rigid environment which he ultimately rejected, he is still a huge proponent of  home education and thinks his mom is one of the best teachers around!
Homeschooling parents, this is an episode you won’t want to miss! We may challenge you to rethink about how you listen to your kids, how to look for and complement their strengths, but mostly we will remind all of us how important it is to just point them to Jesus.

Join Fletch (from theMangoTimes) and Kendra (from Preschoolers and Peace) podcast every two weeks as they interview guests and talk through some of the goofiness they have experienced in nearly two decades of Homeschooling In Real Life.
