“Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, and a life” ~ Charlotte Mason
Creating a home that is hospitable is closely connected to creating a home that is conducive to learning for our children. 
Episode 93 is a conversation between Jennifer and Emelie about the hospitality they have experienced over the years, the way in which hospitality shaped their lives and how we can be hospitable.
The home is a powerful place, and how we treat our space, the boundaries we set, and the atmosphere we curate are a significant part of "Peaceful Families and Restored Communities".

A few years ago, Erin Loechner, author of Other Goose and The Opt Out Family, and her family decided to remove social media and opt out of a technologically driven lifestyle. This means having a smartphone that is no more used than a dumb phone, an iPad that can only play scales, and saying no to the digital community in favour of building community amongst your neighbours. 
Join Jennifer and Erin in Episode 88 as they dig into what it looks like to walk away from social media, the unexpected benefits, what you might miss, and all you gain.

Home education through elementary is fairly undaunting and highly enjoyable. When high school rolls around, the pressure to socialise children and prepare them for careers, college, and life begins to amp up, and uncertainty about how equipped we are to tackle the job at hand or even if it's a good idea in the first place can weigh us down. 
Whether you're considering homeschooling through high school, in the midst of it, or looking for fresh ideas after homeschooling your third child, this episode is a goldmine of practical advice.
Carrie De Francisco, a fellow homeschooling parent, founder of Coffee with Carrie, and author of the newly released Homeschool High School, joins Jennifer Pepito in episode 86. Together, they delve into the world of homeschooling, high school, community building, and restoring relationships.

Silent to do lists, Pinterest meal pressure, self-care standards, religious pressures, we are surrounded by so many voices putting external pressures on us. The unfinished baseboards, the 400 recipes in your Pinterests food boards, the weights in the corner of your room, the unused gym membership. What if part of a restored life was learning to identify and reduce these clamouring gremlins that are trying to steal our joy and reduce the simplicity of what Christ has called you to in whatever stage of parenting or life you are in? 
Join Jennifer and Emelie Pepito in episode 85 as they discuss these silent to do lists, how simplicity gives us space to breath, the importance of values, and how understanding who God is as a loving Father can take us from stressed and overwhelmed to a glorious adventure with a loving God who has our backs.

Whenever I read a book by Elizabeth Goudge, I am transported into a world of everyday heroines and heroes that inspire me to live with a little more beauty and graciousness in my everyday life. 
Episode 84 with Elsie Iudicello has the same effect. The wisdom and tender authority she carries, the way she talks about her marriage and husband, the graceful way she sets boundaries of community within her family, and her understanding of seasons, offers a refreshing and inspiring view of an orderly life for our community.
