In this interview Israel and Yvette cover the following topics: 

Common Mistakes Christian Parents Make

Many well-intentioned parents make harmful mistakes as they relate to their children. These mistakes often contribute to bitterness in their children. Over time, they can result in children rejecting their parent and their values. Learn to avoid these pitfalls.

Influence vs. Control: How to Best Motivate Your Child

There is a careful tension that must be maintained between being your child’s authority figure and being their life coach. There is a necessary shift in approach that must take place as your children go through various stages of development. If this transition is not carefully managed, your parenting approach will likely backfire resulting in a lack of influence in your child’s life. Learn the proper balance in this important message.

The Power of Affirmation

When you are trying to inspire and motivate children, there are two forces that are often exerted: Positive and Negative Reinforcement. In this session, Israel explains the importance of Affirmation as a way to inspire and motivate your reluctant child. Drawing from practical and Biblical examples, this session will help you to keep those important relational connections as you are attempting to impart knowledge.

How to Keep Your Child in the Faith

Studies show that 70% of churched youth abandon the Christian faith sometime before high school graduation. While there are no guarantees in parenting, there are steps parents can take that have been proven through various studies to statistically improve the chances of your child embracing and remaining in the faith. Learn what actionable steps you can take to help strengthen your child against unbelief.

Some might say that we are living through difficult times. Some hold to the fact that life could be much more difficult. I suppose it depends on your perspective. But, as 2020/2021 has brought unprecedented circumstances to all of our lives, many kids and parents alike have had to work through the curve balls life has thrown at us and what the future might look like for our families. Though we know that the Lord is sovereign in all things, many are struggling to navigate through these trying times.

Yvette Hampton talks with Michelle Nietert, author, speaker, and Clinical Director of Community Counseling Associates in Dallas, TX, about how to help our kids manage difficult emotions, warning signs to look for, and 5 ways homeschooling moms can protect their own mental health.

We Made a Movie! Schoolhouse Rocked Production Update with Aby Rinella

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

There’s a Revolution Transforming Education and it’s NOT Happening in the Classroom!

This documentary will impact countless lives by…
• Encouraging families who aren’t yet homeschooling to dive in!
• Bringing much needed encouragement and resources to current homeschool families so they will stay the course.
• Breaking down the misconceptions and negative stereotypes that many people believe about homeschooling.

ABOUT THE FILM

“This is not an exaggeration to say, this is the movement that is needed to save this country.”
– Rick Green, Wallbuilders

“We believe homeschooling is critically important if we are to save our republic and the Christian family and church.”
– Kirk Cameron, Actor and Producer

Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution is a feature-length documentary currently in post-production. We are asking the homeschool community, and supporters of this movement, to partner with us in spreading the message that homeschooling is good for students, good for families, and good for culture by bringing Schoolhouse Rocked to theaters nationwide.

The film is intended to break down common misconceptions about homeschooling, encourage a flood of new families to homeschool, and equip those already homeschooling to do it well. The film follows host, Yvette Hampton, as she travels the country with her family, meeting other homeschoolers and education experts in an effort to learn the secrets of successful homeschooling and to tell the story of the millions of people who have been impacted by the homeschool revolution. As viewers follow Yvette on this journey and share in her challenges and victories, they will gather the necessary resources and encouragement to homeschool with excellence — to start strong and finish well!

“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. Join Yvette and Aby as they talk through this important topic and give suggestions on how to love your family well.

For the love of homeschooling video - The Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast

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.”

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. Join Yvette and Aby as they talk through this important topic and give suggestions on how to love your family well.

Join Yvette Hampton and Aby Rinella as they discuss the love of God, family, and homeschooling!

Join us tomorrow for the conclusion of this conversation.

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.”
