“I want you to know, the time that you invest is oh so worth it. Those days when you feel like you’re a failure, those days when you feel like you’re going to ruin your child, you just keep showing up. Motherhood is the ministry of showing up. Show up moms. Show up every day. Be patient. Be diligent. Be faithful. God will reward you when you do not grow weary and quit. It’s always too soon to quit! The cool thing is, you can finish this race well. You can finish this race with kids who actually like you. You can finish this race with a family that’s intact. You can finish this race with kids who are able to stand strong in this world, that can take their place in the marketplace, that can function well in society, that can love the Lord and really make a difference in this world. And you have that opportunity when you choose to homeschool. And you just keep pressing on, and you keep leaning in to the Lord when those days are super hard. You can do it! I know you can!” – Connie Albers

Here’s a fun early contest video featuring the Hampton girls! We were giving away three sets of the Green Ember series audiobooks. Author, S.D. Smith has given us a couple of sets of all three audiobooks, so we are giving them away to three lucky winners. We are huge fans of The Green Ember series, and are currently making our way through The Green Ember as a family. We love #RabbitsWithSwords!
Sarah Mackenzie from Read-Aloud Revival with Yvette in Greenville, South Carolina
We had the great pleasure of interviewing Sarah Mackenzie, author of Teaching From Rest, at the Southeast Homeschool Convention in Greenville, South Carolina.
Thank you Connie Albers and Colleen Kessler for a fun night! We stayed up late interviewing these brilliant leaders in the homeschooling community. These ladies are so generous in their support of homeschooling. It was a great pleasure to watch them pour into peoples’ lives at their booths and in their sessions. You will be blessed by their contributions to Schoolhouse Rocked.
In this series, the Hamptons share stories of God’s goodness. Every day God provides in new and powerful ways, and it is our job to testify to His great love.
In this episode, Yvette shares the story of how we met Pastor and Author, Scott LaPierre, and got to interview him, his wife Katie, and several members of Woodland Christian Church, in Woodland, Washington.
