Hope and Thanksgiving

When something horrible happens depression knocks on our door and it never wants to leave. All we can think about is what we don’t have or who isn’t there. If we lose a loved one during the holidays that makes it even worse. We remember the time we had, but often can’t remember the good in our time of grief.

At times when we feel depressed, we are telling ourselves things that make it worse. Our well-meaning friends or relatives may also add to the depression or hurt. There are stages we go through and sometimes we just need to allow time to heal but that does not mean we ever forget.


Doing Ministry With Your Kids Along – MBFLP 185

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Are you in ministry, or do think you might be called into some kind of Christian service, but have mixed feelings and doubts about the role of your kids? How do you do Kingdom work with little ones in tow? Is it even possible? We’d suggest that not only is it possible, sometimes having your family along enhances your ministry.  This episode we look at ways to approach ministry, from Saturday volunteering up to full-time vocational service, when you’ve got children along.

MBFLP – Youth Groups – Good, Bad, or Depends?

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

MBFLP - Youth GroupsReports circulating online suggest that large numbers of evangelical Christians are skeptical that youth ministries are effective – or even Biblical. Yet thousands of American kids (and their parents) are involved with the local church youth group, and some families won’t consider attending a church that doesn’t have one. Are these common branches of church life a good thing, a bad thing, or something which can go either way? In this episode, we share some positive and some negative things we’ve seen, and hear from our adult son John Calvin Young about youth ministry done well — and conclude that maybe the question is not Yes or No, but more When and How to organize separate events for young people in the church!

MBFLP – Cheap Family Travel

MBFLP - Cheap Travel

Think of family travel and you probably think of vacation. But what other adventures could your family undertake if you could save 40 to 60% on the cost of “conventional” travel? Could they join Dad on business travel? Plan the ultimate field trip? Make a mission week a family project? Last year Hal and Melanie took their family on the road for over 30,000 miles–and this episode, they share their secrets for finding the best deals on airfare, lodging, and even how to save on routine gas fill ups!

Homeschooling Can Be a Ministry

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.


Homeschool Can be a MinistryHomeschooling can be a  ministry in your home and around the world. Too often we can get stuck in meeting the academic needs of our children and miss the bigger (and better) picture of discipling them to become adults that serve others in their local area and around the world.

How do you do that? Well, I’m glad you asked. A few years ago, I met Leslie and David Nunnery from Teach Them Diligently.  Their hearts for homeschoolers and sharing the gospel around the world have lead them on a journey of joys and sorrows. Regardless of any tough times, they know that they are working for the Lord and are honored to do just that.

Their hearts are to encourage you and others to disciple your children and make disciples of all nations.  So, take a seat, go for a walk, and listen to this sweet and fun conversation with a very dear friend of mine. I know you will be blessed and will bless others by it.  Make sure you share it with others. Let’s start a movement together that leads to a revival across the world – on Rejoicing Daily
