A few years ago, Erin Loechner, author of Other Goose and The Opt Out Family, and her family decided to remove social media and opt out of a technologically driven lifestyle.

Home education through elementary is fairly undaunting and highly enjoyable.

Carrie De Francisco, a fellow homeschooling parent, founder of Coffee with Carrie, and author of the newly released Homeschool High School, joins Jennifer Pepito in episode 86.

Silent to do lists, Pinterest meal pressure, self-care standards, religious pressures, we are surrounded by so many voices putting external pressures on us. The unfinished baseboards, the 400 recipes in your Pinterests food boards, the weights in the corner of your room, the unused gym membership.

Submission has become a polarising word. For those of us who were raised under hyper-religious structures in the 80s and 90s, submission was framed in medieval terms. For some, it's one of those things in the Bible, that we simply lay aside as archaic, along with the commandment for women to go outside of the city whilst on their period. For others, it conveys a whole world of hurt and manipulation.  But what is submission, really? Is it necessary? And does it have anything to do with building an orderly, fulfilling, and joy filled marriage? Welcome to episode 83! Emelie and Jennifer begin to tackle some of these questions, and talk about thankfulness, submission, Laura Doyles six step to intimacy, and so much more.  Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

Prayer is a habit essential to our walk as mothers. We are entrusted with the care of souls, and how can we do that without constant communion with God?  Not only that, but our Christian faith gives us open access to a loving God who speaks to us as individuals and the body of Christ, encourages, exhorts, guides us in our daily decisions, comforts us in our stress and distress, and is a "very present help in trouble."

If you were dropped into an alpine meadow with a large picnic hamper full of C.S. Lewisesque fruits and foods, and your children, would you have the most delicious day of your life? Imagine this meadow has a stream, and you don't have a phone or a computer; it's you and your children in the most pristine and quiet setting imaginable.  Would you have the best day of your life? Or would the silence and spacious emptiness of such a day make you feel uneasy? Do you think something important might not be getting done? For me, the thought of having such an unproductive day fills me with a low level of anxiety.  What if in our busyness and overstimulation, we are missing an invitation to connect with Jesus? What if there is a level of Shalom on offer for our homes that requires us to prioritise empty space in our daily lives?  Welcome to episode 74 with Kimberly June Miller, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. We've talked so much about becoming healthier as parents across the Restoration Home Podcast and I love this conversation because it is full of practical advice and compassion for parents.  Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

Episode 73 marks the beginning of a four week segment on stewardship. Jennifer and Emelie start with the most basic stewardship, our hormones, specifically progesterone!*  Progesterone is the hormone that prepares your body for pregnancy at the end of your cycle. When you have enough of it, you should feel calm and nurtured in the days running up to your cycle. But stress, crowded schedules, busy school loads, and trying to do everything can derail our progesterone production.  Why does this matter? When we don't steward our hormones properly across our cycle, we start using cortisol and adrenals to function. This causes long term stress on our body, reducing our capacity to handle bigger life stressors that come our way because we have used everything up trying to over perform during the progesterone (Luteal Phase) of our cycle.  Addressing this is about learning micro stewardship of our emotions and progesterone across the cycle. Micro emotional stewardship is learning to connect with God in the middle of a emotion and ask:  1. Is this feeling true or is it an emotion that's coming up and related to some old pain or lie about the goodness of God, the love of my husband, or God's sufficiency? (Memorise Psalm 23) 2. Is this feeling something physical–hormonal, exhaustion, poor diet choice, stress? 3. Is my reaction to this feeling going to bring connection or disconnection?  Progesterone stewardship is learning to identify the foods and care your body needs in the last 10 days of your cycle.  *None of this is medical advice, nor is it intended to be.  Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!
