Building your Mom Team

Lisa Nehring is joined by Jennifer Uren, who podcasts at This Mom Knows. Jennifer says, “Every business  "yes" can feel like a parenting "no"Building your Mom Team

Today on the show, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring is joined by Jennifer Uren, who podcasts at This Mom Knows. Life Jennifer says, “Every business  “yes” can feel like a parenting “no” – and that’s when mom guilt kicks in.  Through her website and podcast, This Mom Knows, Jennifer Uren coaches and encourages mompreneurs to find the right systems, tools, and people – their “Mom Team” – so they have the support and energy to be their best as both “mom” and “entrepreneur”.

  1. How do we know we need a Mom Team?
    We need a Mom Team all the time. But, we often confuse need with effectiveness. When things are going well, we believe that we are managing just fine. But when things are going a bit sidewise, we are often too overwhelmed to put into place the systems, tools and processes we need to create the best team.
    So, we need to build our team as we go.
    The Best Mom team consists of systems, tools and people, most often a combination of all three, put together when things seem to be going well.
    Mom Team –  Most things that we are doing require both:
    System- the process repeatable recordable; like a recipe- allows us to delegate.
    Tool- the specifics we use to work the system.
    To create the best team, you need to spend some time observing yourself ,your rhythms and routines; what works best for you. You want to take yourself out of the equation- often Mom’s feel like they have to do it all and that creates a bottleneck. Take time to analyze how you  think, how you function, what tools work best for you, what processes do you need to put into place.
  2. How do we sort through the myriad of systems to create the best team?
    1. Start with what we know- do research and make a choice.
    2. Once the choice is made, put blinders on and lean into what you have  – don’t submit to the shiny object syndrome.
    3. All systems have a learning curve- commit to learning the system and realize that friction (i.e. frustration) might be part of the process).

3. Are there any good, “Start here” systems to begin with as we build our team

    1. Home- meet our basic needs
      1. Meals- Planning, Shopping, Cooking, Clean-up, Storing
      2. Laundry- gateway to all things clean in our home
      3. Paper -Bills paid, events planned, activities prepped for
    2. Business/ Homeschool- create space for meaningful work
      1. Workspace – is it virtual, portable, permanent
      2. Email- the heart of communication and represents need, implementation and response.
      3. Time- rhythms and routines around tasks- creating space adn protecting that space to get everything done

To create an effective Mom Team we have to get out of the mindset that we have to be the ones who do it all. We have to quit creating the bottleneck. If we delegate and off-load we can have the energy that we need to do things that we are called to do. Who can trade, barter and pay for others to join our team.

While it can be hard to ask for help, it’s hard to receive help when we receive.

Keep in mind that you can’t do everything, but you can do many things, just not everything at once!

About Jenn: Jenn Uren is very familiar with trying to juggle and do all the things herself but too often found that it was at the expense of her family, especially relationship with her kids. She hit a breaking point five years ago when she and her husband experienced a surprise adoption of a sibling set (100% unexpected – you can hear about it on her podcast).  This started her down a life-giving path of transformation as she learned how to ask for help, offer help, and lean into systems to simplify and create space in her own life – and she wants to help you do that, too. Because the good news is that you can do it all, just not by yourself.

She and her family have recently left the hustle and bustle of the Chicagoland area and are enjoying discovering their new hometown in Northwest Indiana.

Why Studying Science is a Mandatory Life Skill!

Emma is a Cambridge trained physicist, who teaches online Science classes from True North Homeschool Academy.Why Studying Science is a Mandatory Life Skill!

Today, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring, is joined by Emma Cummings. Emma is a Cambridge  trained physicist, who teaches online Science classes from True North Homeschool Academy, while homeschooling her own children in Scotland.

Today, she is sharing with us, 3 Reasons Why Studying Science is a Mandatory Life Skill

Grab our New Year’s Reading Challenge Reading-BingoDownload

  1. It teaches problem solving and critical thinking and logic skills. Students lean both inductive and deductive reasoning from Science study, how to make inferences and the logical conclusions of things. It also teaches excellent communication skills, as the Scientific Method and Lab Reports demand efficient and effective communication.
  2. It awakens science students to the wonder of Creation. Science trains students to notice both the very small, the very large, patterns, anomalies nad more. Throughout this study, Intelligent Design becomes very clear. So many great Scientists have been great men and women of God. Studying Science doesn’t draw people away from God, it draws them to God!
  3. Its FUN! Emma was drawn to science as a young girl because of her love for blowing things up and getting a reaction, and that love dynamic has not changed! She still thinks science is about the most fun a person could have!

FREEBIES from True North Homeschool Academy! 

Mrs. Cummings will be teaching Biology/ Physics as well as Astronomy and Math at True North Homeschool Academy,  fall 2022. She also loves tutoring Math and making complex concepts accessible to students who thought they were impossible to understand!

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 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.

  2. Word Studies 1828 Webster’s Dictionary
