TRUE Love of Christ for Mom

The true love of Christ is never more evident than at Christmas time and Easter. During this season we look to Christ, His coming as an infant and look at this sacrifice for us! We celebrate Christmas in so many different ways. Without loved ones, or sometimes alone. I’ve spoken to many single moms who share time with their children and explain that Christmas is a time of loneliness.

Do you feel the true happiness comes from Christ? Do you reach out to others in need? Do you look at the transformation that can come into your life by placing yourself in God’s hands?

In this special episode, I want to share the true love of Christ!

Merry Christmas from Vintage Homeschool Moms!  Back in 2013, I shared a story I wrote especially for you, the busy and weary mom. Felice writes a tale of a woman you can probably identify with at some point of your journey as a wife and mother. She writes about the transformation that takes place when this woman places herself totally into the hands of Christ.

We hope you enjoy this special story – and share it with your friends!

Science labs depend on good equipment but also a good curriculum. This book has hundreds of recommended books and many are available in libraries.

Tried and true science lab sheets!

An added bonus to this book contains blank science experiment sheets – we’ve used these over the years with our children and hundreds of children have used them in science labs I’ve hosted. These lab sheets will keep the kid’s notes organized and are great for science lab notebooks.

Keeping Christ the center and focus of a holiday celebration can be very difficult in this commercial and media saturated society. However, Meredith and Felice share ways they celebrate Christmas keeping Christ in the center. Lots of great ideas and ways to keep your family joyous without breaking the bank!

Here is a handout along with a free printable to hang on your wall! JOY

Is Jesus the Reason for the Season

Jesus is the reasonWhat is the reason for your season?

I can think of so many words that sum up this time of year, see if you can relate to any of these:

  • Stress
  • Harried
  • Busy
  • Rushed
  • Overwhelmed
  • Exhausted
  • Over-commited

Can you relate? Most of us are wives, mothers as well as homeschoolers and these days something has to go in our efforts to be jolly and happy and shop or make gifts for family and friends. And, for me this causes extreme stress which means I don’t do well with the day-to-day to-do lists. In other words I keep forgetting things! My daughter with her five little ones recently shared with me that during the pre-Thanksgiving week she forgot to return library book, pay bills or even {gasp!} do laundry! We both laughed because I knew better. In fact, I returned all our library book early because I knew I would forget to return them!

So what to do?

1. Listen to the audio by Meredith & Felice – https://www.ultimateradioshow.com/jesus-is-the-reason

2. Plan ahead – be sure that whatever you need to get done do early if at all possible

3. Remember the real reason for the Season – if need be print out the poster and read it daily (see post above with the audio with Meredith and Felice for this handout)

4. Institute some type of family tradition – whether it is celebrating Advent with an Advent wreath and Bible readings and prayers, or do some type of charitable activity.

More so, make time for family and friends. Things are so transient and as my family ages it hits me more and more. My in laws who would host holiday events, now they walk with a hobble as they come into my home. It reminds me to cherish time with them and my dad who lives with me! And, I so appreciate all of you. You, my online family are very dear to me. I know it sounds strange but it is so true. I’ve gotten to know many of you through the years! Thanks for being here for me!

So, let’s talk about holiday traditions that are JESUS focused. Can you share some with me?
