Let’s Make it Work for You!

HCLlogoGplusIf you’re new to the Lifestyle of Learning™ message and ministry, or you’ve been skirting the edges of it for awhile but haven’t yet delved in for practical understanding, then you’ll want to hear about our newest practical tool to help you get focused toward cooperating with God for tackling the challenges you face when learning how to make changes.

When you are just coming to Lifestyle of Learning™ or are unfamiliar with it, you might just be trying on yet another homeschooling approach in the hope of finding something that will work for you and your children. It’s possible you haven’t yet known your children’s true needs, and haven’t yet realized that no matter how different an academic approach seems from what you’ve tried before it won’t fix your relational problems that are really at the core of your difficulties. In coming to Lifestyle of Learning™, you will be faced with the need to fix some relational dynamics in your home, resulting in a change of focus so you can learn how to love your children with Christlike sacrificial love, making educating your child much easier and more efficient.

A Two-Fold Approach

As you’ve read the complimentary material we offer on our website lifestyleoflearning.org you’ve heard that the Lifestyle of Learning™message teaches a two-fold approach to education that instructs in the importance of combining growth with learning for a whole-life education (which promotes true discipleship to Christ). We seek to provide lots of practical resources to help you learn how to facilitate both the learning aspects of your children’s education as well as the spiritual growth aspects of your family’s relational dynamics. As you enter into a process with God’s work in your own life, He releases His guiding wisdom for how to meet your family’s unique needs, and then many of your questions begin to have answers straight from God’s heart to your own.

We want to help make Lifestyle of Learning™ ideas work for you and your family, and toward that end, we’ve prepared a series of 13 1-hour long seminars, Love’s Actions Seminars, that will convict and inspire you toward understanding in many practical ways how God wants you to begin cooperating with Him in the moment-by-moment and day-to-day of being a parent who loves with Christlike love.

The idea for the Love’s Actions Seminars was inspired by the book of the same title that I compiled to accompany my newest book, Empowering the Transfer of Moral Values and Faith. Barbie and I have made a complimentary audio for you discussing how and why we began to make these Love’s Actions Seminars. In the audio, we also give a sample of what sort of message you’ll be hearing in the seminars. You can find the complimentary audio at the top of the page here:

LovesActionsAudio1Good Responses

We’ve had lots of really good responses about the seminar’s practicality for moms in learning how to love their children the way God loves us. Until you really allow God to begin a work in your own heart, you’ll continue to encounter roadblocks that prevent you from the fruit you know you’re supposed to be getting with your lifestyle of learning efforts. But you won’t know that those roadblocks are coming from within your own heart, and how you’re expressing your heart toward your children through your relational habits. Through the Love’s Actions Seminars, your soul will begin to absorb scriptural truths that couldn’t be any more clear about how to proceed in many practical ways with your family relationships. It’s time for some relational changes so you can have a fun and successful future of developing your family’s lifestyle of learning.

The following blog posts from Barbie are about these powerful words of truth in how to love. In these blog posts Barbie will also be sharing with you some of the testimonies of how other moms have been impacted by them as well.

Do You Know What God’s Expectations Are?

CoachingErickaHere’s the sixth and final testimony I promised you in my previous post from one of my Lifestyle of Learning™ mom friends who went through the live versions of the five mini coaching programs “Making Heart-Level Connections”.

After reading Ericka’s thoughts about her life,

I’d like to encourage you to check out the short introductory video at the bottom of this post. It’s only 15 minutes long, and along with my own commentary, you will get to hear the voices of several moms openly sharing their thoughts with you. My team and I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to hear this message, so if you’d rather read the contents of the video instead of watching it, you can download the script here.

Here’s what Ericka H. says about her life since participating in the coaching programs:

“These five programs have been so beneficial to me. I have spent many years seeking God, but not really connecting with Him. Through these five interrelated programs, I have been learning what disconnects within me have kept me from Him, and the loving and patient discipleship made available by Marilyn Howshall and Barbie Poling and others in the group has helped me to keep returning to the Lord in obedience in order to overcome these disconnects.

By going through these programs I have been freed from my main disconnect—self-condemnation. Thank You, LORD!! I see now that I’ve believed that I have to always “get everything right the first time”. I’m realizing, even as I type this, that it is also what has stalled my process with the Lord over and over and over. I have (unknowingly) believed that I have to get this “loving thing” right the first time, every time, too. So, when I haven’t, I’ve spent days and weeks berating myself and spinning out of control emotionally, and pouring ugliness out on anyone who came near. BUT NO MORE! I was not created to self-condemn! As a result of going through these programs I have become patient, content and eager to see where the Lord is leading me. I am trusting and obeying more, and I will no longer view obedience as optional or conditional. I am being filled with joy and peace!

I am now beginning to learn to love, since I am much more available to become loving. Before, when I was still trapped in self-condemnation, I was struggling to understand how I could EVER be able to actually DO the things Barbie has described in the Love’s Actions audios. But now those lessons are clear to me, and I am able to implement them right away, as soon as I read or listen to them.

I have received so much new revelation through these programs! Oh, my! I’ve come to know that God LOVES me. And in His goodness, He REALLY wants what is best for ME. His plans are GOOD for ME! For ME! He’s not mad at me. He’s not irritated with me. God is ONLY ONLY ONLY For me. NOT against me! He is good and His goodness is REALLY available for ME! Before, I knew a list of His character qualities: He is good and loving, patient, etc., but now my knowledge of Him has become real and personal.

I am beginning to see real and deep connections in my relationship with my husband and in my relationship with each of our children. There is more loving relating in our household than ever before!

I am so very grateful to the Lord, and to Marilyn and Barbie, and to the sweet ladies in the live group who have become my friends. They have poured love into my life towards these amazing changes in my heart. I have been exceedingly blessed as so many have shared their own struggles and growth. The fellowship in this precious group is like nothing I have ever experienced. Thank you Lord!” ~ Ericka H

Can You Identify with Ericka?

If you are like Ericka, you may have felt like you never measure up to what God expects of you. You may think God is angry or irritated with you because you aren’t able to do what you know you ought to be doing. Would you like to be freed from self-condemnation and filled with joy and peace as you live an overcoming life? You can experience freedom from self-condemnation and deeper and more practical connections with the Lord like Ericka has!

So Many More Testimonies

Ericka and the other moms we’ve quoted aren’t the only ones! Here are a few more of the comments we received after just one 2-hour coaching call, the first audio of the mini coaching program, Your Conscience.

“I never knew my conscience could be so sharp. I get poked if I even begin to clench my teeth. This is a good thing, because I see that I start to clench my teeth when I am about to speak in irritation or anger. I love that the Holy Spirit wants me to “Stop It!” even before I get started, and will lovingly warn me that it is coming. I don’t want to miss the REAL God anymore. I can hardly contain my joy today. I have found Him!!! I have been singing and dancing all morning.”

“My conscience has been sharpened—as soon as a single sharp word or clenched teeth begins to happen I’m reminded to just STOP! Thank you so much for this ministry!!!”

“After this first call, there is a new peace that has come over my soul. The Lord is fully meeting my needs. I am so excited to be in this place. It has been a very long time coming. I am so grateful that God’s love is more than enough, that His heart is to forgive. I have been enabled to completely forgive. How grateful I am.”

“I am breathing the perfume of hope and forgiveness. My god, who was always angry and disapproving, is the wrong one. Praise Jesus! I now can see The True Forgiving Savior. I caught a view of Him, through Barbie’s description of Marilyn’s forgiveness of her, that I have never seen before. I did not realize that is how Jesus is with me. I have seen Jesus all wrong for a long time. The picture I am seeing in my mind is Jesus standing in front of me, offering himself to love me, forgive me, etc., but I am turned toward the guy next to Him, who is angry and disapproving, thinking he is Jesus. No wonder I have had no relationship. I have been appealing to the wrong person. How sad that must make Him!”

“After the call I was just crying out to the Lord! I poured out my heart in repentance and He lavished me with His amazing love! Then later in the evening when my husband said that he’d like to hear about the call. I had to chuckle, because after all the tears, I was exhausted and felt like there would be NO WAY to ever share with him all that God is doing in me. It was then that the Holy Spirit whispered, ‘you don’t have to share it all just start by humbling yourself and repent.’ I did exactly that and it was an amazing time of breakthrough and forgiveness! Not only was my husband receptive, but God showed up in a powerful way and brought so much healing and hope over us!”

“After the first call, my gratefulness is overflowing. I am a different person today—no longer taking up offense. I’m showering forgiveness and grace on my kids and my husband and seeing my sin for what it really is and, without even waiting one second, repenting and receiving God’s mercy and forgiveness in real time. My desire to turn away from God to my own ways is GONE. He IS Who He says He IS! Thank you so very much, Marilyn and Barbie. God has used your ministry to draw me to Himself. I have listened to the call again, and I’ve already gotten more out of it…I just want to LOVE everyone the way I have been loved. Lord, You are so merciful and so precious. I love You, Lord!”

Are You Ready for Real Answers that Work?

The heart-level changes that Ericka and these others describe have been helping them to turn things around in their families. God has been teaching Ericka how to let go of false standards that He never placed on her life, so she can follow Him according to His loving standard for her family. You can find the answers your heart is searching for like Ericka did, and like many other Lifestyle of Learning™ moms who are finding real answers for their families too. The “Making Heart-Level Connections” mini coaching programs can change your life, and help you get connected with the Lord toward a growth process like you’ve never known before! Are you ready to build the lasting foundation that will support a whole-life education?

Is Lifestyle of Learning™ Working for You?

coachingLisaHere’s the first of the testimonies I promised you in my last blog post. It’s from one of my Lifestyle of Learning™ mom friends who has begun to discover how to achieve the success she’s been hoping for.

Here’s what Lisa C. says about her life since participating in the coaching programs:

“Through the teachings and mentoring of the five “Making Heart-Level Connections” coaching programs, I received truth and help that has changed my life completely. I have been floundering trying to implement Lifestyle of Learning™ without knowing how to be Spirit-led. Since going through the programs, I let go of all kinds of fear and learned to be Spirit-led and open to what God is leading my family to do through living in a faith-filled relationship with Him.

I am freed from all kinds of unloving behaviors like anger, worry, discouragement, self-pity, selfishness, control, irritations, negativity, and perfectionism. I learned to die to myself, my selfish ways, and be filled with the Spirit, abiding and trusting in Him for everything. Now I am walking in grace and forgiveness towards myself and my family, receiving love and forgiveness from my Heavenly Father. I have had a desire for so long for a real relationship with God that lasts all day long in my everyday busyness of being a homeschool mom, and I have finally learned how to do that. I am now walking in real joy and thanksgiving, cooperating with what the Lord is doing in my life instead of fighting and complaining about what happens. Thank You Lord!” ~ Lisa C.

Can You Identify with Lisa?

If you’re like Lisa, you may be wondering how children can pursue their own education without curriculum to make them do assignments. Or you may feel like you don’t know how to be Spirit-led in much of anything, let alone your kids’ education, and you may be concerned that your kids don’t seem to be interested in anything that seems like education to you. Worse yet, your days may be filled with so much complaining, bickering, and strife, it’s hard to believe you could accomplish much of anything toward your kids’ education. These concerns are common among homeschooling moms, but, like Lisa, some moms are finding answers that work.

Are You Ready for Real Answers that Work?

These changes in Lisa are beginning to impact her whole family! God is helping her to create the environment that serves a whole-life education like Lifestyle of Learning™ promotes. You can find the answers your heart is searching for like Lisa did, and like many other Lifestyle of Learning™ moms who are finding real answers for their families too. The “Making Heart-Level Connections” mini coaching programs can change your life, and help you get connected with the Lord toward a growth process like you’ve never known before!

The video at the bottom gives an introduction to the Making Heart-Level Connections mini coaching programs. It’s 15 minutes long. If you’d prefer to read the contents of the video instead of watch it, you can find a pdf of it here.

I want to inspire you with Hope!

I want to inspire you with hope today! The Good Lord wants to do so much in our lives as parents, helping us to raise our children up for Him, helping us to reconcile our family relationships to Him, and helping us in the overcoming life as we live our lives for Him! He wants to be a personal God to us, but we limit Him so much. I’ve found that we believers don’t actually see how we limit God in our day-to-day lives, and if we do, we may need a little help to get unstuck and get connected to His heart-level work. This is why I want to inspire you with the hope that there are many practical things you can begin to do right now to connect into all that He wants to do in you and your family. I want to inspire you with the hope that you can learn how to cooperate more fully with the Lord’s personal work in you, and experience His love more completely so the fruit of your labors will be realized.

Here are two words for you—inspire and hope. Inspire means to suggest, to introduce, and to implant ideas into the mind; to fill you with what brings new life, and to communicate to your spirit a superior or supernatural influence. Don’t we all need a superior influence! The second word Hope is a desire of some good, accompanied with at least a slight expectation of obtaining it, or a belief that it is obtainable, based on substantial evidence. Hope provides pleasure or joy and is confident in a future event.

But sometimes it’s hard to anticipate something good when all around you, you can witness the same old thing happening to just about everyone’s family as their children approach the teen years. Hearts begin to close off more and more, broken relationships begin to be more noticeable, and as parents lose more of their influence, kids begin to go their independent ways. It’s pretty difficult to comfort yourself with the thought that, “It must be normal, it’s happening to everyone, and so it’ll probably happen to me too…”

It doesn’t have to be this way! Taken together these two words—inspire and hope—can cause you to anticipate something good for you and your family. I want to provide you with substantial evidence that your cooperation with God’s desires for your family will result in healed and whole heart-level relationships with your children; relationships that will sustain your family through the changing seasons of growing up and every trial life brings. I want to stir up in you the expectation of obtaining this and the belief that it is obtainable in your life…..(This discussion continues in the free 15-page article, “Your Hope Inspired”.

One Thing 6 Moms Have in Common that Give Them Homeschooling Success

coachingLisaWould you like to hear from six homeschooling moms (in the following six blog posts) who found the key to success with homeschooling? Their stories will inspire you as they share from the place of learning to serve the true needs of their families. You can learn the ONE THING they all have in common that is serving to give them the success they have always longed for.

I have had personal interactions with all of these moms. I know their stories, where they’ve been in their spiritual growth processes, and what’s more, I know about some of their relational fruit (the good, the bad, and the Christlike fruit growing in them now). They all used to be in a similar distressing, floundering, or lost CoachingBlogMichelleHplace that I describe below and that you may be finding yourself in now.

Feeling Distressed, Lost, or Like You’re Floundering?

If you’ve read some about Lifestyle of Learning™, liked its freeing-sounding ideas, but wondered how you could make it work in your home without giving your children over to their own independent ways, then you will want to read these moms’ revealing testimonies, because they are learning how to combine their children’s need for inner CoachingMichelleGrelational growth with their need for an academic education.

If you wonder how it seems like there are some homeschooling children who can pursue their own education (without curriculum or a teacher to make them do assignments) since your children don’t seem to be interested in anything (that seems like education to you), then you will want to read these moms’ transparent testimonies, because they are learning how to address coachingTeritheir children’s character growth needs alongside their learning needs.

If you think that being Spirit-led in your family’s education seems like a good idea, but from what you’ve seen in other families it looks more like “child-led” or “unschooling”, then you won’t want to miss reading these moms’ testimonies, because they are learning how to address their children’s growth needs alongside their learning needs by the direction of the Holy Spirit.

coachingCatherineIf your days at home are filled with complaining, bickering, and strife that makes it hard to accomplish anything productive, and you just know that there should be more love between family members, then you won’t want to miss reading these moms’ testimonies, because they are learning how to love, and they are training their children to do the same.

One Thing these Moms Have in Common

CoachingErickaSo, here is the one thing these moms all have in common that is serving to give them the success they have been longing for: They made a quality decision and commitment to allow God, their Heavenly Father, to parent them. Yes, that’s right, parent them—at the heart-level.

If your relational fruit is telling on you in any way (if you lack the wise influence you think you should have with your children), then you don’t want to waste another year procrastinating about important family matters while bad fruit keeps getting worse.

It takes intentional effort to fix messy or broken relational dynamics and create a peaceful home atmosphere that supports a whole-life education. There is no better purpose! God can begin right now with you, if your heart is wholly open to Him.

Real Answers That Work

My L.O.L. mom friends found real answers in the Lord that have been changing them while impacting their entire family, and you can too! I’ve created an entire set of five mini coaching programs “Making Heart-Level Connections” that provide you with the beginnings of heart-level correction and instruction so you can connect into the work of God’s parenting in your own heart. My L.O.L. mom friends found many practical solutions in these programs that helped them to do the real work of turning things around in their families and give them the fruit they’ve longed for.

The video below gives an introduction to the “Making Heart-Level Connections” mini coaching programs. It’s 15 minutes long. If you’d prefer to read the contents of the video instead of watch it, you can find a pdf of it here.

You’re going to enjoy the testimonies of my L.O.L. mom friends in the following 6 blog posts. They pack a reality that will inspire you to want the same thing they are beginning to experience in their lives. Their enthusiasm will inspire you with the hope that dynamic growth in the Lord, which changes your whole life, is as much for you as it is for them.

3 Soul Conditions that Prevent Learning ~ Are They Happening in Your Family?

Help for Engaging Your Child’s Uniqueness

Screen shot 2014-03-30 at 6.10.03 PMIs your homeschooling working for your children? Do they come alive with the education you’re providing? Are they fully and deeply engaged with your method of homeschooling? If you’re like some homeschoolers, your children may be at best tolerating your methods, and at worst resisting and refusing to do what you’re assigning. The majority of kids will fall anywhere in between these extremes perhaps willingly complying with whatever is set before them, while still wrestling with disinterest and search for personal identity. Your family may be suffering from 3 negative soul conditions common to homeschoolers.

For the first couple of years of my homeschooling adventure, I was completely unaware that my schooled son’s own soul condition would influence the process and the outcome of his education, and what degree of success we would experience. His soul had been influenced partially by the means of education that he was subjected to, and partly due to the unhealthy condition of the relationships in our home. When my methods or curriculum didn’t seem to be working, I would look for something else that I thought might be more fun and hopefully engage my son. However, I was neglecting the real causes of his lack of interest. Of course this wasn’t an intentional oversight, I just didn’t know anything else.

Disinterest, Boredom, and Burn-Out

Have you been wishing your homeschooling would engage your child?

If so, I want to help you realize that your child’s soul is being influenced by everything important in his life, and this in turn influences how he relates with the educational process in which you involve him. The beginnings of burn-out and boredom that will cause your children to disengage from their own education could be on the horizon and you may not even know it. This message will help you to recognize the path to disinterest, burn-out and boredom, and explain why this happens in so many Christian homeschooling families.

In my own situation, through much experimentation and receiving the Lord’s wisdom, I finally came to realize that the very best fruit of any of my efforts came through real life learning that each of my children connected with in their own unique way. I began focusing more on healing the soul conditions in my family by learning how to address disinterest, burnout and boredom and other negative habits of how my children related with their own learning processes. I want to help you learn how to do the same so you can see how Lifestyle of Learning™ can be a good fit for your family. I pray that as you’re reading through this article, you’ll be filled with hope that God has answers to help you embrace a living education that will reverse the effects of burnout and boredom in your children so they will deeply engage with who God created them to be.

Do Your Children Love Learning?

In our traditional educational system, the activity of learning has been distorted from its true nature to look like something many of us don’t really want to have much to do with. When we were young and doing school, we couldn’t wait until it was over each day, each week, and each year. School has made us come to believe that learning is distasteful and so we continue to press our children toward just-like-school activity, even though it is not engaging them….

This discussion continues in the free 14-page article “Help for Engaging Your Child’s Uniqueness.”

This article is for you if you are a Christian homeschooling parent who wants their children to love learning and become who God made them to be.

What is Necessary?

Hello Dear Members!

s and j with kidsIt’s a really beautiful day here! We can see Mt. Rainier so clearly, and the sun is shining so nicely! My tulips and irises are blooming, and the birds are coming to the bird feeder outside my window by my desk. Marilyn’s cute little grandsons are outside playing with my kiddos in the dirt pile. I wish time would stand still for a while today, so that I can enjoy it for longer!

I hope you’re enjoying your days with your precious ones, and hopefully enjoying some nice weather!

I’ve been reading the New Testament with Lizzy and Josiah lately, and yesterday we came across these verses that made me think of you.

Gal 5:24-26 “Among those who belong to Christ, everything connected with getting our own way and mindlessly responding to what everyone else calls necessities is killed off for good—crucified. Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.”

This phrase really stuck out to me, “mindlessly responding to what everyone else calls necessities” I was remembering how my life was before I learned how to be led by the Spirit. It really was mindless. It wasn’t that I didn’t have any thoughts. It’s that I didn’t spend much time thinking about the way we were living our lives. The schedule of our church activities along with the schedule of our school-at-home activities made it so that I didn’t have to think much about what we were going to do in a day. It was mindless. I used to say, “my life ran itself.”

It was mindless because I whole-heartedly embraced what I saw everyone else doing – I was following along with what “others called ‘necessities’.” I thought it was necessary to be involved in everything happening at our church. I thought it was necessary to follow grade-level, subject-divided curriculum in order to educate my children. I thought it was necessary to provide my children with peers for friends. I mindlessly followed these things that seemed to me to be necessary simply because everyone else thought they were necessary.

You, sweet LOLACHE members, are taking the time to escape “mindlessly responding to what others call necessities.” I love how this verse goes on to describe what it is like to put off this sort of mindlessness. It says we will have far more interesting things to do than compare ourselves to one another! It says we will become originals.

The passage implies that this sort of mindlessness leads to the kind of fear that moms experience when believing that their children must be at the same level in everything as all the rest of the children their age. It leads to the fear of not doing enough school. It leads to the pressure put on children to complete assignments because of mom’s fear and comparisons to “what others call necessities”.

I’m so thankful you ladies are allowing the Lord to set you free from this mindlessness so that you can be led by His Holy Spirit toward becoming the unique expression of His character that he’s made you to be, and your children along with you! I’m so thankful that you are responding to the opportunity to ask, “What is truly necessary for us today according to Your Holy Spirit?”

Blessings,
~ Barbie Poling
