The Sabbath Principle: How to Apply to Your Homeschooling

We had such a great time at our annual Special Weekend for Homeschooling Moms back in March! It was so much fun seeing familiar faces, reconnecting with old friends, and meeting a few new friends. Since our main goal of the event each year is to give moms a much-needed break filled with fellowship with like-minded homeschooling moms, our event was in person! The sessions are great but the best advice and encouragement happen during breaks between the moms at each table. We didn’t feel streaming it live would have the same impact. However, many of you came up to after each session and asked if I could share the sessions on upcoming podcasts for their friends who were not able to attend. So this week, our podcast is a re-recording of our second session on Saturday morning, “How to Apply the Sabbath Principle to Your Homeschooling.”

In this session (and podcast), I share just a few tidbits from the first section of my book, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee): Homeschool in Step with God. But the majority of this session were stories and lessons learned after the book was published and during this crazy Covid year of survival schooling. Since I was able to re-record it, I was also able to add a few extra tips, stories, and advice that I didn’t have time to share at our conference.

Since this podcast was longer than most CWC podcasts, we split it into two episodes: Part 1 and Part 2.


I hope you enjoy it and I hope it encourages you in practical ways to rest on the Lord! If it blesses you, please share it with a friend who needs a little “Sabbath” in her home and homeschooling.

Check back next week for Part 2
