HSHSP Ep 91: Good News about Mom-Fails

Ever feel like a failure? Or maybe just have one of those memorable *mom-fail* moments?

That’s one thing about being a homeschool mom: We are just human. Humans fail!

If you think you’ve sometimes blown it, listen to Sabrina, Vicki and Kym’s mom-fails:

  • Sabrina’s famous strawberry jam failure…
  • Vicki’s failure to teach weather safety…
  • Kym’s crying at the wrong child’s graduation…
  • Vicki’s leaving 10 teens on the metro platform in Washington DC…

In this episode, we share encouragement… and quotes… and soundbites to help you feel better about your mom-fails!

  • Kym’s goal of having her kids experience different fails than her parents’ failures.
  • Vicki’s reminder that motherhood is all about guilt!
  • And so much more!

We ask the hard-hitting question: Why is it so hard to forgive ourselves for our failures?

Is it because:

  • We are forgetting that only God is perfect

Kym helps us remember Angie Smith’s saying: We need to need God in front of our kids rather than being God for our kids.

Join Sabrina, Vicki and Kym as they encourage you with thoughts about these questions.

  • How can we recover from failures?
  • How can we talk to ourselves about our failures?
  • How can we admit our faults and obey God in forgiveness?
  • How can we not take ourselves too seriously?

Remember, as Sabrina says, “Failure is not a destination, it is simply a rock that we trip over while on the journey.”

Join Sabrina, Vicki and Kym for lots of encouragement for homeschool mom-fails! In the meantime, check out these posts:

The Gift of Failure

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

The Gift of Failure

Failing hurts. Every task or project that we put effort into that fails stings of discouragement. It can wear us down and prevent us from seeing our gifts and talents. It can make us believe we do not have anything to offer. But what if we thought of failure as a gift and not an enemy? What if failure is what catapults us into real success? Let’t turn failure on its ear and see things from a different point of view.

Teaching Your Kids to Deal With Failure – MBFLP 129

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Teaching Kids to Cope with Failure

We can expect life to have disappointments, setbacks, and downright failures – even the best of lives in a fallen world! Adults usually realize they have to be able to take some bad news, learn what they can, repent where they should, and move along. But how about our kids? In their flexible, family-centered, affirming world, are they equipped to handle the realities of a hostile grown-up society? Isn’t it important that we teach them a God-honoring perspective on the inevitable bumps and hard knocks to come? This episode, we look at the importance of challenging our kids to learn from their mistakes — and even, maybe, to challenge them enough to overcome early perfectionism!
