Global Flood

Global Flood | As we talk about the Genesis Global Flood and its significance, it is important to, first of all, determine if it was a global or a local event. Did the Flood cover the whole earth or just Mesopotamia? | #podcast #creationpodcast The Global Flood Episode 17

The Four Great Global Events of Genesis The Flood

As we talk about the Genesis Global Flood and its significance, it is important to, first of all, determine if it was a global or a local event. Did the Flood cover the whole earth or just Mesopotamia?

Genesis indicates that the Flood was global, affecting all of the earth. If this was not the case, then the rainbow that the Lord gave as a sign of His promise would have been a promise given just to the people of Mesopotamia and would have had no significance for the rest of the world. Why does the world need to be reminded that the Lord would never flood Mesopotamia again? This would have been a huge waste of time and space to take four chapters of Genesis to tell a story that is irrelevant to future generations.

Global Flood:

We also need to decide if the story of the Flood is anything more than a myth. It is true that the Flood cannot be proven by science, but the same is true of the uniformitarian view of our earth. Uniformitarianism also can not prove that the earth is a product of processes over millions of years. To be classified as science, it must be able to be tested, observed, and repeated. This is not possible with uniformitarianism.

Scripture is not intended to be a scientific dissertation on geology, but it is a historical record that presents the global Flood as a real historical event. The real question to address is, can the Flood explain the geological landforms, rocks, and fossils that we see today? And the answer is, yes.

Global Flood:

There are two major stages as recorded in the Scripture concerning the Flood – the filling stage, or the inundation stage. This is found in Genesis 7:23-24. The second stage, the receding stage, is found in Gen 8:1-16. Although there is no scientific terminology in either of these passages, there are quite a few geological implications in these passages.

Here are the verses and activity/geological implications:

Gen.7:4 – Extinction

Gen. 7:11 – Tectonic upheaval

Gen. 7:11 – Torrential and violent rain, massive flooding

Gen. 7:17 – Massive amounts of rock and sediment torn up and moved

Gen. 7:18 – The waters and their strength increase, causing erosion and transportation of sediments

Gen. 7:19 – The Flood was deep, covering the entire earth

Gen. 7:21 – The Flood was devastating to life, which is what the fossil record shows

Gen. 7:22 – Dead things buried in rock layers all over the earth

Ge. 7:23 – All air-breathing, land-dwelling life outside of the ark perished

Gen. 7:24 – It took 150 days for the water to reach a maximum depth

Gen. 8:1 – Water draining off the earth carved great ravines, channels, and planation surfaces

Gen. 8:2 – Wet sediments torn up by the Flood begin to settle

Gen. 8:3 – Receding flood waters would have caused rapid and catastrophic cutting and planation

Ge. 8:5 – Continued planation and channelized erosion

Gen. 8:34 – Some sediments during this time would have hardened, others would have warped during the tectonic processes of the Flood

 

And the products that we would highlight are:

Overcoming Mental Fatigue

Overcoming Mental Fatigue | The help you need to identify and combat mental fatigue | #homeschool #podcast #homeschoolpodcastOvercoming Mental Fatigue Episode 346

Feeling tired results in mental fatigue, causing you to feel anxious, forgetful and emotional. In this episode, we will discuss ways to overcome mental fatigue. And don’t miss the episode on Mommy Night Time Routines – listen here.

Thanks to our sponsor – MediaAngels.com and the book One More Child.

Mental fatigue comes when we are overworked physically and mentally. Typical life for a homeschool mom involves so much! We clean, we cook, we work with the kids. We are overjoyed on the success of our children and follow them to lessons, and events. We even plan events and host endless get-togethers for birthday celebrations and the like.

Even with all the technology we have today instead of making our lives easier it becomes more complicated in some ways because it brings information into our homes (think Facebook here) that might cause us to worry or stress. And the pressure we put on ourselves! To succeed, to achieve, for our kids to succeed and achieve! Our schedules are busy, busy, busy. Sometimes it is difficult to think!

This becomes a vicious cycle and it can become a way of life if we are not careful. Many times we resort to coffee or caffeine to combat our tiredness which just continues the cycle. Having mental fatigue causes our thinking to be impulsive and we don’t really think things through!

Here is what causes the problem:

  1. Too much on our schedule.
  2. Never relaxing, keeping busy all the time.
  3. Overcommitting
  4. Your phone or other digital devices.
  5. Hurried meal times, eating standing up.
  6. Not enough sleep
  7. Not enough exercise

 

Here is how to break the cycle.

  1. Enjoy each moment – take the time to look around and appreciate your surroundings.
  2. Say no – stop overcommitting
  3. Pray – and then breathe! Taking deep breaths does help.
  4. Put down your phone
  5. Eat sitting down, enjoy your food.
  6. Get a good nights sleep – nightly routine
  7. Exercise even if it is just walking

As busy moms, we wear many hats– wife, mother, housekeeper, chef, educator, taxi driver, and so much more. The demands on our time are endless. Do you ever lose sight of why you do all that you do? Do you ever find yourself feeling discontent with where God has you right now, or do you ever feel like there is no more of you to give to anyone? Let’s take a very practical and personal look at exactly why we are here. Along the way, I think we’ll see the incredible purpose and peace we all can have when we truly figure that out.

Overcoming Procrastination

Overcoming Procrastination | Join Lucia as she shares how taking charge of your life and overcoming procrastination will help you live your best life on purpose. Today’s the day to open the door to the cage of self-imposed limitations so you can step into a bright future that includes freedom, success, and victory! | #podcast #homeschoolpodcastOvercoming Procrastination

Join Lucia as she shares how taking charge of your life and overcoming procrastination will help you live your best life on purpose. Today’s the day to open the door to the cage of self-imposed limitations so you can step into a bright future that includes freedom, success, and victory!

Jeremiah 33:3 tells us, “To call unto God and He will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you don’t know.”  Lucia explains that it’s necessary to make time in your daily schedule to clear your mind and imagine what your life can be like.

Success and procrastination are totally incompatible so if you plan to change your habits, you must discipline yourself to take responsibility for your life and stop putting things off.  Today’s the day to seize the moment – seize the day, because, at the end of the year, you don’t want to look back and say, I wish I would have done so and so.

We can’t deny change when it comes to our lives, and we can’t stop making choices to change and grow or we become stagnant in life.  We need to embrace change because it helps us grow. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, For everything, there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.”

Lucia will encourage you to change your habits this year, because if you don’t, this year will be like last year, and next year will be like this year.  Before you know it, you will be at the end of your life with a bag full of wishes and I should haves!

Encouragement For Moms

Encouragement Just For Moms Episode 344

Let’s regroup and recharge! It is time for encouragement for moms – yes, you! This episode if just for you mom, I’ll share some of the ways I’ve been able to take some time and refill, gain more energy and then charge back into life. Some of these things are easy and you can do in a few minutes, others take a bit more planning. Either way, this will be a blessing for you Mom, as we celebrate moms in the month of May!

This episode is brought to you by Media Angels, please check out the latest book, One More Child – available with a special offer during a very short time. Visit the website Media Angels.com and look for the author page here.

Encouragement For Moms

Moms, let’s face it we often put ourselves last and that means we are overworked, have mental fatigue and just want to go to bed, most days. When we are overwhelmed we feel defeated like we can’t continue on like this and remain healthy. Stress eats away at our health in ways that are detrimental! We want to be healthy, energetic and joyful! Does this sound far fetched or beyond your reach? Does this sound like I’m talking about someone else, but not you?

Friends, we have to take care of ourselves. It wasn’t until I got sick from stress and overwork that I realized I needed to change. I don’t smoke, drink or eat excessively. I don’t crave sweets – but I do like an occasional piece of chocolate. Feeling like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders, I realized I had to slow down and take charge of my health. With good food, supplements, and essential oils, I regained my health.

Now I’m not saying it was just what I fed my body – but I also fed my soul. I take time each and every day, to begin with prayer. An hour or more of prayer. Not just a “help me, Lord” like I use to shout out as a busy and frazzled homeschool mom – although I do some of that as well. More along the lines of reading the Bible, listening to the Word speak to me and praying all day. I recently did an episode of taking Jesus with You – on A Few Minutes with God Podcast. It has been such a blessing for me!

Look at why you feel the way you do and make a change. No one can do it – but you can!

Let’s talk about 5-Ways in 5 minutes to Recharge and Fresh – Encouragement for Moms

  1. Stop. Drop. Pray. Everyone says to take a deep breath – but how can you breathe when you feel stressed out? So, we are going to work on destressing! When you feel your most stressed stop right then, drop to your knees and pray! Recently I was working with one of my grandkids and they were getting stressed, so I stopped and prayed for them and it worked, they relaxed smiled and were able to complete the task at hand!
  2. Stop and smell the roses! Literally. What scent do you enjoy? I know some of you may be allergic to perfume, but if you like a particular clean scent – or even going outside after it rains – anything that will lift your spirits. I love lemon, and citrus smells. I love Bergmont an essential oil that has some of these scents. I use it every night before I go to bed, I put a few drops on my fingers and massage it on the back of my neck! It is so relaxing.
  3. Hot or cold compress. You can take a washcloth and place it in water (you can also use a “smell” you enjoy) and either heat it up in the microwave for 15-30 seconds – be sure check that it isn’t too hot — or, place it in cold water and place it over your eyes for five minutes. You can ask a child to read to you, or sing, or tell you a story! This will more than likely make you smile (or laugh) and give you a revigorating few minutes to relax! You can wash your face, this helps invigorate you as well.
  4. Sit down with your legs up. We sit, but either we have our legs folded, or crossed or under a desk with our kids doing school work nearby and when you get up you can be stiff and sore. If you sit with your legs elevated (even if you sit on the floor – where I spent many hours in my homeschool journey!) it works! You will feel refreshed.
  5. Sing! Don’t say you can’t hold a tune, put something uplifting on and sing! You can sing low so the song is louder but it helps. I sing praise and worship music all the time when I feel down and it is so uplifting. I have a song called Joy and it makes me, joyful!

The things that take longer than five minutes that you have to plan for are a long luxurious bath, listening to podcasts – for help and encouragement, hiring or trading with a friend to babysit the kids while you take a much needed break (this doesn’t mean you go grocery shopping! Although going alone does sound like a good idea!

Learn to say no – I didn’t include it in the list above because I wanted to focus on things you could do now, not preventative for the future. Get rid of the things that cause stress in your life – now! Your health and the wellbeing of your family is counting on it!

Assignments Kids Love

Assignments Kids Love | Are there really assignments that kids love -- yes! Especially when you allow them to study an area of interest. As a homeschool mom, I loved having proof that my children learned and what better way than through assignments. Testing is truly the easy way out.

Are there really assignments that kids love — yes! Especially when you allow them to study an area of interest. As a homeschool mom, I loved having proof that my children learned and what better way than through assignments. Testing is truly the easy way out. A child memorizes what is on the test and then proceeds to forget.

My daughter has a history professor that uses the following and very effective method of giving assignments.

  1. She assigns a book to read.
  2. She has them write a one page report covering the main ideas.
  3. She has them do a presentation on the book about ten minutes in length and then asks them questions.

In this way they not only have to research, write and then present, but they have to know the information in order to answer questions.

Assignments Kids Love – Ways To Demonstrate Knowledge

  1. Write a report. Use a word processor, use photos and illustrations.
  2. Or you can use a “Lapbook” technique. Use a file folder and cut outs to illustrate each of the points you want to make. This can be stored as a file folder and used for displays.
  3. Create a display using a science fair board.
  4. Use the wonder bubble unit technique. Draw one circle in the middle with a main idea or theme. Ask the children – what is the question or the problem to be solved? You can brainstorm ideas and decide which should make it to the board. After research write the main points on circles tied into the main one. The children can present their board. It can be created on a large piece o

In addition, begin small and work up. You can start with a short book on a topic they would enjoy and then increase it as the subject becomes more complex. For example, you would not give a topic like astronomy because it is too vast – but perhaps, a planet, a space flight like Apollo 11 or an astronaut like Neil Armstrong.

Last Minute Easter Prep

Last Minute Easter Prep | Last minute Easter Prep made easy! If you are hosting an Easter celebration or joining one here are some things to remember to make your time memorable and fun. And, the best part it can be hassle-free and will save money and time. | #podcast #holidayprep #easterLast Minute Easter Prep – Episode 341

Last minute Easter Prep made easy! If you are hosting an Easter celebration or joining one here are some things to remember to make your time memorable and fun. And, the best part it can be hassle-free and will save money and time.

Easter is a time when we rejoice and celebrate and commemorate the Lord’s death and Resurrection. Eggs symbolize new birth and for us, as Christian’s, it is a time of renewal of our faith and rebirth in a sense as well.

SO, how do we translate our faith into a celebration that the children will understand and remember for more than just the candy? We have a celebration!

I’ve hosted many of these and now my younger kids are grown up and sadly can’t join us as they are away in other states in college. While I’m sad for us, I’m happy they can spend it together. However, my “help” has dwindled down and that is why I am big on doing things way ahead. There are always last minute things to do. If you are a guest ask if you can arrive early to help. And be sure to volunteer to help clean up (without being asked!) Unless you know your host really does not want your help.

My secret has been keeping it simple. And, in reusing things from past celebrations and adding on as money or time permitted for crafts. For example, I use cloth napkins that are over ten years old and napkin rings. I also use paper napkins and have those out for use with appetizers, etc.t

Clothing:

Fancy clothes are nice and special but we rarely wear them more than one time and they tend to be more expensive.

  1. Sewing is an option for those talented.
  2. Dress up a simpler dress with jewelry or a pretty sweater.
  3. Order online and return what you don’t like. Saves time and money, often online sources are cheaper than shopping in the stores.
  4. Go to second-hand stores – great bargains for those with patience!
  5. Outlet or discount stores

Decorations:

  1. Create nice posters that commemorate the Lord’s resurrection – the March 2019 planner contains some you can print out that I’ve provided.
  2. Have the children make a paper chain with strips of colored paper in pastels you can hand.
  3. Use wildflowers and create a spring bouquet for the tables.
  4. Colorful tablecloths and napkins

Delegate:

  1. Everyone has a job – be sure they know what it is.
  2. Guests want to help – the ones that don’t you’ll either know or they may surprise you!
  3. Have a floater *typically spouse who can go where needed – on call.

Food – Keep it simple:

  • Casserole or roast – prepare ahead or in a slow cooker (or instant pot!)
  • Ready-made sides  – or prepare and freeze
  • Allow others to bring something
  • Cake or cheesecake, brownies

Cleaning:

  • Start way ahead
  • Assign jobs – take out the trash, pick up items from the floor, etc.
  • Keep trash bags and cleaning cloths handy for spills
  • Set up tables or count number of chairs
  • Cups with lids for kids (use disposable insulated coffee cups with lids -insert straws)

Games for Kids – Basket of stuff for little ones –

  • Coloring books and my favorites are nonmessy – coloring markers that don’t make a mess “magic”
  • balloons (helium is a favorite) with weighted toys. – caution – ceiling fans!
  • Paper crafts – airplanes
  • Plain paper and coloring pencils
  • Plastic eggs with pennies or cheap toys
  • Kathleen’s store – trade in eggs for stuff

Older Kids:

Playoffs –

  • Checker game boards
  • Chess boards
  • Card games
  • Outside activates if weather permits

Food – Taken inventory

  1. Make a list – what needs to be done this week?
    1. Food shopping
    2. Make ahead foods
    3. Buy ahead foods and date – when (bread, etc.)
    4. Cleaning
    5. Table settings/ plastic plates?
    6. Kid-friendly activities
  2. What did you plan to make or take that you didn’t do yet?
    1. Do you have time? If not buy prepared.
    2. If so – make it and freeze it ahead.
    3. If you are making it the day of – plan a schedule
  3. Plan your menu with times to cook –what does in when? (Talk about lasagna – cold)
  4. Appetizers – will you have any? If so are they easy to prepare ahead of time?

Worship

Church – the most important event is going to worship the resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Some churches have a late evening service the night before that goes on for hours – ours does with readings from Genesis through the birth and resurrection of our Lord – basically the salvation history. Others have a sunrise service or services during the morning.

Remember to begin the day with praise and prayer! He is Risen!!

 

This is a wonderful response  ~

Ha!Ha! Thank you for this! I have already purchased our whole Easter meal this past weekend – two slices of ham steak (just need to be heated) and microwave everything – potatoes – sweet and regular – mac and cheese, and two frozen already made desserts! We will make deviled eggs out of our colored eggs and probably resurrection rolls out of canned crescent rolls 😉 Decided my family will enjoy this just as much because we never have this kind of food. We will be having a big breakfast at church – which my daughter and I are making homemade dishes for -that morning. A long time ago, I would have said: “Oh no  – I can’t cook homemade for other people and then not do it for my family”. But I realize there will be lots more time for homemade for my family during the year when it isn’t a holiday and they will enjoy a happy mama more than the food 🙂 Thanks again! It really is about Jesus and not food!
