Parenting

Yvette Hampton, producer and host of the upcoming documentary, Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution, brings you encouragement and resources from home education experts and REAL families just like yours, to help you train your children well.

Episodes

“If Mama ain't happy, ain’t nobody happy!” Ever heard these words? We live in a world that promotes “me time” and "she sheds" but, while those things can often lead to complete self-centeredness, we do need to make taking care of ourselves a priority. Perhaps the saying should go “If Mama ain’t well cared for, ain’t nobody well cared for!” However, mama self-care doesn’t necessarily mean weekly manicures and coffee dates with our girlfriends. It starts with spiritual self-care - growing in our relationship with the Lord - to ensure that we are prepared for the stresses of life. Following spiritual self-care is learning how to care for our physical bodies so that we have the strength and health to care for those whom the Lord has entrusted to us on a daily basis. Yvette Hampton talks with homeschool mom, Rochelle Nelson, about the importance of Mama Self-Care.

We all love our kids, but how do we show it? Or do we show it? What does the Bible have to say about love? Sometimes love doesn’t come naturally and oftentimes we have to really work at it. Love isn’t always a feeling, it’s often a choice. Thankfully, God has provided us with a beautiful blueprint on how to love those in our lives.

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

Yvette Hampton is a homeschool mom through and through, but it wasn’t supposed to be this way. Like so many other homeschoolers, Yvette and her husband, Garritt, said they would NEVER homeschool their kids, but God had other plans. She is the producer and host of the upcoming documentary, Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution, being directed by her husband, Garritt Hampton. She is also host of The Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast. As a mom who is concerned for the future of this generation and the future of our country, Yvette has a deep passion to see a culture shift by encouraging people through the truth of God’s Word. Her greatest joy in life is being a wife and mom!

Aby Rinella is a former public school teacher turned passionate homeschool mom.  
Aby resides in the mountains of the west with her college sweetheart and 3 awesome kids where they enjoy all things outdoors.  She is a writer and speaker seeking to encourage and inspire women to live the life they were designed to live, to train up their children in God’s Word, and to stand on truth in a culture that has lost its foundation. 

Scripture References:

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

 “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogantor rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;  it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.”

 

Galatians 5:16-24

”But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions,envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

  • WORDS OF AFFIRMATION: Compliment them – encourage them - express appreciation – give a card – send a text – tell them you love them – tell them you’re proud – actively listen – put a note under their pillow – notice their efforts and acknowledge in front of others
  • ACTS OF SERVICE: Help them clean their room – make them meals – help them get out the door on time – help with schoolwork – bring them a drink of water – help them with their chores –tuck them in at night
  • PHYSICAL TOUCH: Comb their hair – scratch their back – rub their feet – cuddle and read a story – tickle them – pat them on the back – sit near them – welcome kisses and hugs – group hugs – high fives – hold hands –
  • GIFTS: Make their favorite treat – give a thoughtful gift on an ordinary day – plan presents that fit their interests – send them mail when you’re away – give them a flower or pretty rock – remember special occasions and celebrate - appreciate their gifts
  • QUALITY TIME: Give your undivided attention – do chores together – bake together – ask about their day – eye contact – play with them – do a craft – eat together – go on dates – play board games – bike rides – go for walks together – stay up with them late at night and let them talk

How do we remain steadfast at home while the world is seemingly on fire? We turn to God’s Word and heed His instructions to us. We MUST gird up and teach our kids to do the same. He is a merciful God with a great plan and, like Queen Esther, He has each one of us here for such a time as this!

Many parents choose to homeschool because they value family relationships. However, though it’s not intentional, it’s quite common for the children to become the priority and for the marriage relationship to be pushed aside. It’s difficult for a family to thrive if the relationship between husband and wife is not Christ-centered and healthy.

Yvette Hampton is joined by Kirk Cameron as he shares some of the lessons he and his wife, Chelsea, have learned about setting a solid foundation over the past 28 years of marriage, and through many years of homeschooling.

Kirk Cameron has been a part of the national landscape since starring as “Mike Seaver” in the ABC hit sitcom, “Growing Pains.” That role turned him into a cultural icon in the 80’s, with his mullet hairstyle, cool sunglasses, and wisecracking comebacks. Since then, he’s appeared in numerous television and movie productions, including the “Left Behind” series, “Monumental,” and “Fireproof”- the marriage-centered film that became the #1 grossing inspirational movie of 2008. His newest film, Connect, offers “real help for parenting teens in a social media world.” 

Kirk and his wife, Chelsea, met on the set of “Growing Pains” and have been married for over 27 years. Together they have six children and host an all-expenses-paid summer camp for terminally ill children and their families called Camp Firefly.

When you think about Christmas and the birth of Jesus, do you ever consider Mary? Who was she? How did she react to the news that she would bear the Christ child?  What was it like to be the mother of a perfect child? What pressures did she endure and how did she handle being pregnant without being married or even fully united with her betrothed, Joseph? What kind of support did she have from her family and friends? Was she scared?

Join Yvette Hampton and Aby Rinella as they talk about this young girl who literally changed the world by simply saying "Yes" to the Lord. What is He calling YOU to do? How can you be a world changer? And, what lessons can we as homeschool moms learn from Mary?

Our Favorite Christmas Traditions- Yvette Hampton and Aby Rinella

Watch the full video of this conversation on the Schoolhouse Rocked YouTube Channel.

 

Yvette Hampton is a homeschool mom through and through, but it wasn’t supposed to be this way. Like so many other homeschoolers, Yvette and her husband, Garritt, said they would NEVER homeschool their kids, but God had other plans. As a mom who is concerned for future generations and for the future of our country, Yvette has a deep passion to see a culture shift by encouraging people through the truth of God’s Word. Her greatest joy in life is being a wife and mom!

Aby Rinella is a former public school teacher turned passionate homeschool mom.  
Aby resides in the mountains of the west with her college sweetheart and 3 awesome kids where they enjoy all things outdoors. Aby is a writer and speaker seeking to encourage and inspire women to live the life they were designed to live, to train up their children in God’s Word, and to stand on truth in a culture that has lost its foundation.
