How to Weather a Crisis of Faith in your Family

How to Weather a Crisis of Faith in Your Family: Today I am joined by guest Meredith Curtis, a fellow podcaster.How to Weather a Crisis of Faith in Your Family

Today I am joined by guest Meredith Curtis, a fellow podcaster on the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network and a teacher at True North Homeschool Academy. Today we are talking about Facing a Crisis in one’s family.

 

Types of Crisis of Faith a Christian Family might face:

  1. Child decides that they are not a Christian
  2. Sexual Identity and God’s plan for relationships is not honored
  3. Blaming of person – Victim-claiming
  4. Use of pornography

 

When a family member experiences a crisis of faith, it is natural for the other family members to:

  1. Feel insecure and anxious
  2. Blame-shift
  3. Personal responsibility disappears

 

 

How to Get through a Crisis of Faith in Your Family

  1. Repent of everything the Lord brings to mind and seek His forgiveness.
  2. Encourage each other as parents
  3. Recognize that God’s ways are not our ways
  4. Press into the Lord with prayer and fasting, find people to stand with you, in faith believing
  5. Stand on the promises of God
  6. Do not lose heart/ hope, despite the length of time
  7. Realize that others are watching and wondering if God is real and if Christianity works so keep firm in your convictions and faith

Augustine’s Mother is a great example of a parent who continued to pray in faith believing for their wayward child!

Scriptures of Encouragement:

“…by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:1-4, particularly 1:4

“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” 2 Timothy 3:1-4

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts …” Eph 6:12

Event Planning with Anna Knaub

This week, I’m joined by True North Homeschool Academy Teacher, Anna Knaub, who is going to be talking with us about the important life skill of Event Planning!Successful Event Planning is a Life Skill

 

This week, I’m joined by True North Homeschool Academy Teacher, Anna Knaub, who is going to be talking with us about the important life skill of Event Planning!

Types of Event Planning:

  • Wedding
  • Birthdays
  • Corporate & Business
  • Holiday
  • Church
  • Fund Raising

Event Planning is a great “robot-proofed” job! It requires:

Event planners can make a LOT of money. And as parents, we know that we are planning events with regularity – from birthdays, to travel/ vacations, holidays and more!

Helping our kids understand the basics of event planning is a life skill – one they can monetize and serve others with!

How to help your kids get started with Event Planning as a fun Micro-Biz:

  • Pick and age group
  • Pick 4 themes
  • Come up with supplies- might require front end money for things like Table Cloths, etc.
  • Plot things out: Time frame, sample menu, decorations, items to purchase, who is making purchases,etc.
  • Pinterest is a great place for ideas as well as place to create themed boards as you plan

Moms and Nehemiah

Nehemiah was a man of prayerMoms & Nehemiah

Taken from the Book of Nehemiah, particularly Nehemiah 3

What does the book of Nehemiah have to do with homeschooling and intentional parenting?

  • Like many homeschooling parents, Nehemiah was a man of prayer
  • Nehemiah teaches us to “Do Weakness well”
  • Nehemiah teaches us to let a question LIVE
  • Let God fight our battles; let him be the defender when we experience injustice.

2 Corinthians 10:4  The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

Isaiah 61:3  They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord, for the display of his splendor.

Teach our kids to discern, to be critical thinkers, to love God’s word.

  1. Christian Counseling and Education Foundation: Tedd Tripp: Shepherding a Child’s Heart
  2. Word Studies 1828 Webster’s Dictionary
    1. Look up key word definitions
    2. Look up scriptures on that
    3. Definitions are part of our kid’s weaponry.

Your kids will live and work in a technological world full of Robots and Artificial Intelligence. How are we supposed to raise kids who have the know-how to compete in such a technological future? I’m glad you asked!
So, let’s dig into the practicality of HOW to develop your kids humanity:

✅Develop your kids faith life
✅A solid liberal arts background will develop academic skills and abilities as well as give our kids a taste of Truth, Beauty and Goodness.
✅Focus on building your kids’ Soft Skills Muscles; Soft skills such as communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration, along with flexibility and adaptability, time and distraction management, loyalty, integrity, etc.
✅Emphasize developing your kids Creativity! Creativity is going to be a vital skill as we navigate through this 4th Industrial Revolution!
✅Build your kids Critical Thinking Muscles! Encourage them to see “around” a problem and creatively and critically problem solve.
✅Give your kids opportunities to collaborate in meaningful ways. Team builders are integral to successful families and work environments.
✅Computers cannot become Culturally Agile, but humans can; teach your kids a Foreign Language!
✅Intentionally work to develop your kid’s very human capacities for flexibility and adaptability!
Entrepreneurship is one of the best ways to ensure vocational success in the future with the burgeoning gig economy, so teach them what it means to live and think entrepreneurially!!
✅Encourage your kids to become auto-didacts- self-learners as our kids will be working in a fast paced, global work environment where they will be required to pivot frequently and with ease!

A Special Thank You to Our Network Sponsor:  Courageous Movie

 

From the Kendrick Brothers, creators of the No. 1 box-office movie WAR ROOM and OVERCOMER, comes the remastered re-release of COURAGEOUS Legacy, in theaters September 24. Celebrating 10 years of impact on families and fathers, this updated version of the film includes new scenes and an enhanced look and sound.

Filled with action-packed drama, COURAGEOUS Legacy will once again have viewers laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children. Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.

Check out the trailer here!


Why Learn a Foreign Language?

Today I’m joined by my youngest daughter and recent homeschool graduate, Hannah Nehring. Hannah focused on Foreign Languages during high school and began learning German this fall, her 5th foreign language, following Latin, Hebrew, Spanish and Chinese.Why Learn a Foreign Language?

Today I’m joined by my youngest daughter and recent homeschool graduate, Hannah Nehring. Hannah focused on Foreign Languages during high school and began learning German this fall, her 5th foreign language, following Latin, Hebrew, Spanish and Chinese. She is currently conversant in both Hebrew and Spanish, with the goal of fluency in multiple languages. She set this goal for herself after a project she completed in True North Homeschool Academy’s Orienteering Course (Career Exploration).


In addition to studying each language, Hannah has become a student of how to learn and study a Foreign Language, which is a fascinating study, in and of itself! 

 

  1. Language is not a code. A Code is a pattern. Language is living as it has to do with how people interact. 
  2. The principles of decoding, however, have to do with pattern recognition. 
  3. The Psychology of language- when you learn a new language, you have a little “Person” in your head that speaks that language. You brain begins to do a lot of comparing and contrasting and you develop different modes of thinking. 
  4. Learning a second language teaches you to fail well and to be resilient, because you make so many mistakes as you learn a new language. 
  5. Learning a second language develops your creativity. 
  6. Learning a second language develops your Critical THinking Skills as you make connections, compare and contrast and learn by context. 
  7. Learning a second language teaches you manners as you begin to understand various cultures and develop cultural awareness. 

Interested in learning a second language? True North Homeshcool Academy offers Latin, Hebrew, Chinese, Spanish, German and French for students from 1st grade through adult! Check out our Foreign Language Exploration “sampler” class, being offered this coming spring!
