HomeschoolingIRL Episode 3: Homeschooling, Halloween and Harry Potter

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Homeschooling, Halloween, and Harry Potter? Are we nuts?

Well, yes, but that didn’t stop us from tackling two hot-potato topics that homeschoolers traditionally love to argue over. You, too?

In this episode, Fletch and Kendra talk about Halloween and the opportunity to love the places where God has put our families. We discuss fear and the life of the believer, and then Fletch elaborates about a character in the Harry Potter series that taught him a valuable lesson.

We promise if you listen, you won’t turn into a newt. You won’t be made fun of or persuaded to change your mind (unless the Holy Spirit does that), and we won’t send you out into the neighborhood looking for the scariest costume this year.

We just thought we’d put it all out on the table, with a big bowl of candy corn just to make sure we keep it sweet. Join us?

70 Vintage Halloween Costumes That Were Really Creepy, from Stuff You Should Know

From Christians and Halloween, Grace to You:

Evil spirits are no more active and sinister on Halloween than they are on any other day of the year; in fact, any day is a good day for Satan to prowl about seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). But “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). God has forever “disarmed principalities and powers” through the cross Christ and “made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them through [Christ]” (Colossians 2:15).
