Show Notes

We talk about homeschooling to pass the baton of faith to our children.

How do we do that?

It starts with dedicating our home school to the Lord.

#1: Dedicate Your Home School To The Lord

Let there be a moment in time when everyone is there to dedicate your family, home, and school to the Lord.

Each year and each day dedicate your homeschooling adventure to the Lord.

#2: Make It Clear That Jesus is In Charge of Your Home & School

Everyone should know that Jesus is in charge.

Seek His will, His plan.

Jesus is With us and Loves us.

#3: Let Scripture Fill Your Days & Teaching

Read the Bible to start each day.

Apply Scripture to situations and attitudes.

Memorize Scripture.

Talk about Scripture passages & Biblical principles.

Apologetics & Worldview Training.

#4: Start With Prayer & Keep It Going

Open each day with prayer.

Pray whenever you need help—a math problem is too hard, something is lost, someone is sad, the kids are arguing.

Ask God for His plans. What should you teach? How should you teach? What curriculum should you use?

#5: Teach From a Christian Worldview

Use books and textbooks that affirm the Word of God, not contradict it, especially in the early years.

When something does mention things that contradict the Word of God or leave things out, talk about it

  • Evolution vs Creation
  • Church as the center of life in Colonial times, Middle Ages, 1800s, etc.
  • Literary characters making poor choices or treating people badly, especially if they are portrayed as Christians
  • Timelines

#6: Look For God’s Perspective On Everything

Whether you are breaking up an argument or talking about Ancient Civilizations, wonder aloud how God sees things. What is His Perspective.

#7: Enjoy God’s Love

The Christian life is fun because we are lavished with love.

When you sin repent and receive forgiveness joyfully.

Imitate your Father in Heaven in loving your children. Be kind, forgiving, and tender-hearted.

One of my new favorite songs is by Cody Carnes, who is married to Kari Jobe by the way.

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
Sorrow may come in the darkest night
But the cross has the final word

There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher
There’s nothing greater than the name of Jesus
All the honor, all the power
All the glory to the name of Jesus

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
Evil may put up its strongest fight
But the cross has the final word

There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher
Nothing greater than the name of Jesus
All the honor, all the power
All the glory to the name of Jesus

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
The Savior has come with the morning light
The cross has the final word

What is that final word?

Well, let’s talk about the cross and how it impacts your life today.

 Notes

Linda Rondstandt Song “When Will I be Loved?”

I’ve been cheated, been mistreated
When will I be loved

I’ve been put down, I’ve been pushed ’round
When will I be loved

When I find a new man that I want for mine
Always breaks my heart in two, it happens every time

I’ve been made blue, I’ve been lied to
When will I be loved

The Longing in Our Hearts to be Loved

Where does that longing come from? What kind of love do we long for? We think it is romantic love we long for but we see so many broken marriages.

The Romantic Fairy-Tale: Aunt Matilda, Hollywood, Action Movies, Rom Coms,

Let’s Renew our Mind about Romantic Love. (Romans 12:1-3)

What does the Bible say about Marriage (Genesis 1:27 & Genesis 2:20-25 & Malachi 2:14-16 & Ephesians 5:21-33)?

The Purpose of Marriage: A Team on a Mission from God

If we find the perfect marriage: is that enough?

The One Who Loves Us

Jesus loves us with an everlasting love.

Jesus doesn’t ever get frustrated with us.

Jesus has prepared a beautiful place for us in Heaven.

Jesus doesn’t grow tired of us. He always tells the truth, always forgives, always teaches us, always has our best interest at heart.

Jesus is working all things together for good in our lives. He is working in us to will and to act according to his good purpose.

Men & Woman who Gave up Marriage for the One Who Love Us:

Apostle Paul, met Jesus on the road to Damascus, passionate to reach the Gentiles, died a martyr’s death.

Lottie Moon, Southern belle missionary to China, gave away all her resources to the Chinese when facing plague, famine, and war, Refused to marry a man who didn’t believe in Creation.

Without Jesus

Love fades away. We grow tired of one another. We hurt one another. We are not satisfied because the other person can’t meet all our needs.

When Will I Be Loved?

It is the devil who lies and cheats and misleads us with wrong information and dreams.

When are you loved????? NOW!

How can we prepare for marriage?

  1. Love Jesus first now and always J
  2. Pray for a spouse (James 4 J ) Pray for your partner in the team on a mission
  3. Prepare to be a good husband or wife in practical ways J

There are so many super-hero movies out now. I have to stop and wonder what makes them so popular.

There are so many familiar heroes from my childhood, but boy; have they changed.

Different in values, morals, humility, respect for authority.

We are broken, but fixed by the One True Super-Hero.

The Real Kingdom and Counterfeit

Podcast #050 The Real Kingdom and the CounterfeitThe Real Kingdom and The Counterfeit with Meredith Curtis, Podcast #050, is a tale of two kingdoms. The Kingdom of God, established by the Lord, will last forever. In opposition is the kingdom of darkness who reign is doomed. Take a trip back in time to the Tower of Babel to discover some recognizable patterns that have been repeated throughout history in a futile attempt to undermine the Lordship of Jesus Christ. You will never see history the same again.
