Replay: When My Convictions Aren’t Your Convictions – HIRL Episode 94

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

HIRL-Episode-94

Homeschooling. Health food. Small church. Mom stays home. KJV only. Dresses. Youth group. Public school. No TV. Our convictions, or the things we strongly about, can drive so much of our lives and end up being the choices by which we define ourselves. They can bring like-minded believers together and set the tone for our families and homes.

But what happens when your convictions are different than mine? As soon as you discover that we don’t have the same non-negotiables in our home as you do in yours, is it a deal-killer?

What does it look like to love other Christians in our community who hold to different standards but agree that Jesus is everything? Can we love each other well, for the sake of the gospel?

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Homeschooling, Halloween, and Harry Potter

homeschooling halloween harry potterThank you to this podcast episode sponsor:  Route 60 – The Biblical Highway. In theaters September 18th & 19th only. Please check the website to learn more about this wonderful movie.

Homeschooling, Halloween, and Harry Potter? Are we nuts?

Well, yes, but that didn’t stop us from tackling two hot potato topics that homeschoolers traditionally love to argue over. You, too?

In this episode, Fletch and Kendra talk about Halloween and the opportunity to love the places where God has put our families. We discuss fear and the life of the believer, and then Fletch elaborates on a character in the Harry Potter series that taught him a valuable lesson.

We promise if you listen, you won’t turn into a newt. You won’t be made fun of or persuaded to change your mind (unless the Holy Spirit does that), and we won’t send you out into the neighborhood looking for the scariest costume this year.

We just thought we’d put it all out on the table, with a big bowl of candy corn just to make sure we keep it sweet. Join us?

 

Show Notes for Episode #3

 

From Christians and Halloween, Grace to You:

Evil spirits are no more active and sinister on Halloween than they are on any other day of the year; in fact, any day is a good day for Satan to prowl about seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). But “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). God has forever “disarmed principalities and powers” through the cross Christ and “made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them through [Christ]” (Colossians 2:15).

Replay: Devotions For The Real Family

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

We are talking about Family Devotions for the Real Family on this podcast.

You know REAL family devotions. The families with the toddler hijacking the deep discussion, the teens are daydreaming, and the mom is falling asleep because it’s been a long, long homeschooling day. Can you relate to family worship that looks like this?

Family worship can be trying for most families, and on this episode of Homeschooling in Real Life, we talk with a dozen dads about what it looks like in their homes. But we won’t leave you feeling like a failure! We want to encourage you to discover God’s glory with your family in a way that suits you best.

In this episode of “Homeschooling in Real Life,” we delve into the realm of family worship, a journey that can be both rewarding and challenging for most families. We sit down with a diverse group of a dozen dads, each bringing their unique experiences and perspectives to the table. Through candid conversations, we unravel the intricacies of what family worship truly entails within their homes.

The conversations are refreshingly honest, acknowledging the inevitable struggles that arise when striving to establish a consistent practice. Amidst busy schedules, varying ages, and divergent interests, these fathers reveal the hurdles they face and the creative solutions they’ve discovered. It’s an insightful glimpse into the reality of harmonizing spirituality within a family unit.

However, the purpose of this episode isn’t to accentuate shortcomings but to inspire and uplift. Instead of focusing solely on the difficulties, we aim to ignite a sense of possibility. Through these discussions, we highlight that family worship is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. Rather, it’s an opportunity for each family to tailor an approach that resonates with their unique dynamics and values.

Ultimately, the episode is a call to embrace the journey of discovering God’s glory alongside your loved ones. It’s a reminder that the path might be winding, and the pace might vary, but the significance lies in the intention and effort. Whether through shared devotionals, musical moments, or simple conversations, there’s an array of avenues to explore. So, as you listen to these stories, may you be empowered to weave a tapestry of family worship that reflects the beauty of your own household.
