Do I Need to Get Involved in My School Board - Ways to Have a Voice in the Community

Do I Need to Get Involved in My School Board - Ways to Have a Voice in the Community

September 15, 2021

Thad Riley, who just finished his term on a New Hampshire school board, is with me today talking about many of the issues he faced while serving his term (he’ll leave us with some encouragement). It is important for us to be a voice for our kids and the next generation.

After serving over a decade in retail management with tech companies, in July of 2015, Thad Riley became a stay-at-home dad. In 2017 he ran for and won a Seat on his town's school board in New Hampshire, and his term ended this past March. He also finished his term as the Chair of the Republicans in his town. 

WHAT YOU’LL HEAR:

  • Issues members of the school board have faced over the past few years and why elections for the school board matter
  • How parents can get involved even if they don’t have the capacity to serve on the board (he actually breaks this down into how we can make it about a 3-hour commitment per year)
  • Where to find the resources to know what is being talked about and voted on in the school board meetings

Part 2: What are the Dangers Critical Race Theory Poses to the Church?

Part 2: What are the Dangers Critical Race Theory Poses to the Church?

September 9, 2021

The church is falling for the social justice gospel. When you add anything to the gospel, you’re changing the gospel! Andrew Rappaport is back with me today for part 2 of our chat about critical race theory and how it’s affecting the church.

Andrew Rappaport is the preaching pastor of Grace & Truth Bible Church in Bucks County, PA, and founder and executive director of Striving for Eternity Ministries and the Christian Podcast Community.

If you haven’t listened to part 1, make sure to go back and listen to that one first. We’ve been having a really great discussion so far, and I don’t feel like I need to have a long introduction, so let’s finish this one up by talking about the dangers of critical race theory in the church and what we can do about it.

Part 1: What is Critical Race Theory? Cultural Views of CRT

Part 1: What is Critical Race Theory? Cultural Views of CRT

September 7, 2021

Today is a hot topic for many, and I know it’s controversial in nature, but it needs to be talked about because it’s affecting our kids and the generations to come. Why? Because it’s seeping sneakily (and not-so-sneakily into our schools). Critical race theory.

What is critical race theory? It is the ideology that is behind most of the diversity and inclusivity training in school and the workplace, and these trainings are actually counterproductive because they’re leading to more bias and fear. It is a lens through which to see the world (a worldview) - it shapes how you view politics, theology, and education.

Critical theory sees everything as the oppressed versus the oppressor. It is deconstructing those constructs until they get down to fitting into this worldview of the oppressed versus the oppressor. 

Why does this matter? What’s the big deal if our kids are being taught it in schools? Isn’t inclusiveness and diversity training a good thing? That’s exactly what I have Andrew Rappaport on with me to talk about today. The language in our culture is changing, and we need to be aware of what the truth is behind it all.

Andrew is the preaching pastor of Grace & Truth Bible Church in Bucks County, PA, and founder and executive director of Striving for Eternity Ministries and the Christian Podcast Community.

Why Advocating for Your Children Matters

Why Advocating for Your Children Matters

August 31, 2021

As our children’s parents and protectors, we need to be their largest advocate as well. In a world where society thinks it knows what’s best for our children, how do we do this? How do we fight for them and their needs, and why do we need to? Personally, what does it mean to advocate for my children? How do I become my child’s best advocate?

These are questions Julie Jones will help us answer today as we dive into how to advocate for our children and why advocating for your children actually matters. 

As a mother of two daughters with hearing loss, Julie knew her journey was going to be a different one. Julie has 26 years of experience raising two daughters with hearing impairment and seeing them grow into happy, productive adults.

Fighting a Battle for Her Daughters’ Hearing Challenges

Fighting a Battle for Her Daughters’ Hearing Challenges

August 24, 2021

What do you do when you learn that your child is going to struggle with a physical challenge throughout her life? 

As a mother of two daughters with hearing loss, Julie Jones knew her journey was going to be a different one.  She wanted to share her story in the book The Lemonade Stand 2 in hopes of helping other parents deal with the emotional and mental struggle when learning their child has a physical challenge. Julie has 26 years of experience raising two daughters with hearing impairment and seeing them grow into happy, productive adults.   

I believe you’re going to love our conversation as we talk about what stepping into the fire was like for her, how she found victory in this journey, and how it’s been a continual battle she’s had to face.

Creating a Routine That Works for Your Homeschool - Start Your Year Strong

Can a working mom still homeschool? How do we prepare ourselves to begin the school year strong? How do you set a good school-year routine? Why is taking time out for ourselves as moms important for our homeschool? How can we do this and not feel the mom guilt?

Anxiety is not just a passing fear, it is a crippling, overwhelming feeling that affects your decisions, your health, and how you view life. This past year, more than ever, moms have been overwhelmed with anxiety because the pandemic hasn’t only caused fear over a virus.

How I Stopped Giving in to Diet Culture and Overcame My Eating Disorder

How I Stopped Giving in to Diet Culture and Overcame My Eating Disorder

August 3, 2021

The battle for our minds is real, and it can come in the form of exercise or food or diet culture, and we need to take the lies captive and trade them for the truths surrounding who we are and who God created us to be. We were perfectly knit in our mother’s womb, and God doesn’t make junk!

This is exactly why I want to share my food story with you, and I felt like it was even better to share an interview I did on the Intuitive Eating for Christian Women podcast because we dove deep into the topic of truth and gratitude. This is one of my favorite conversations I’ve had on another podcast, and I have found so much value in what Charlee and Erin are doing with their podcast and messaging that I wanted to introduce them to you!

I really hope you enjoy this episode because I’m bearing my soul with you in hopes that it’s relatable and inspiring for you to keep going when you may not want to.

What You Need to Know to Build Your Immune System

What You Need to Know to Build Your Immune System

July 20, 2021

Right now more than ever, we want to know how we can be healthier and build our immune systems to fight off viruses or diseases if they strike. We want to (or should want to) get to the root of our health problems. 

I have learned a ton about natural health from Michelle Landrum. She was on a bunch of medications in high school and her early 20s, and after an asthma attack that almost put her in the hospital - along with a few other health complications - she found a natural health professional to help her heal her body naturally. 

After that process, which took about a year, she felt better than she ever remembers feeling. That is why she decided to get certified to be able to help others in the same situation. Natural health is a process, but as we learn more about how our bodies work, we can get a grasp on our health!

How to Redefine Your Beautiful Life

How to Redefine Your Beautiful Life

July 13, 2021

Throughout our lives, there are times that we may step back and wonder if you are living to the fullest or if we took the right path or if our decision-making is wise. We each will find ourselves at a fork in the road or at a roadblock that becomes an obstacle and sets us in motion for transition. And, it’s in these moments that we have a decision to make. Do we take the path less traveled and redefine our lives, or do we succumb to those obstacles and numb ourselves to life? 

Lynn Brown has been on a mission to review her lifelong process of decision-making and the outcomes of those decisions. She now shares her own discoveries to encourage others to do the same and reimagine the beautiful life they have been given. 

Today she is here to share with us her process for moving forward and redefining our life so we can live it to the fullest.
