LOVING LIFE AT HOME - Christian Marriage, Faith-Based Parenting, Biblical Homemaking, Purposeful Living

Do you want to develop stronger family bonds with your husband and kids, but don’t know where to start? Would you like to create a peaceful, orderly home where your family can thrive, but seem to be spinning your wheels? Have you repeatedly tried to live a life of joy and purpose, only to get sucked into a spiral of doubt and anxiety time and time again? Does all the conflicting marriage and parenting advice touted by modern day culture leave you confused and bewildered? Do you long for a seasoned mentor a little further down life’s road who’d be willing to point out the potholes and provide practical pointers? Then you’ve come to the right place! Welcome, friend! My name is Jennifer Flanders. As a devout Christian, happy wife, homeschool mom of twelve, and grandma of 20 (so far!), I’m well-practiced in minding the things that matter most. And since the Bible charges older women to teach younger women to love their husbands, love their children, and be keepers at home, I have a scriptural mandate to share the things I’ve learned with you. Loving Life at Home is your go-to podcast for Titus 2 encouragement in marriage, motherhood, and minding what matters most. In it, I’ll teach you how to: --> nurture your marriage and cultivate a life-long love with your husband --> communicate with your husband in a way he understands and appreciates --> raise children you not only love, but enjoy spending time with --> create a warm, peaceful, inviting home that is a blessing to all who spend time there --> cheerfully attend to all the sanctifying work that marriage, motherhood, and managing a home entails --> use your time wisely, looking to God for the grace and strength to fulfill His call on your life So grab a cup of tea and tune in every Monday morning. In each 20-minute episode, you’ll get biblical encouragement, actionable advice, and firsthand insights on faith and family gleaned from over 35 years of marriage and motherhood and over 50 years of following Jesus.

Much of our outlook depends on our focus. We find what we look for. Start looking for things to be grateful for, and you'll find them aplenty. Search instead for irritations and annoyances, and that's exactly what you'll see.

Martha Washington once said, "I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by ou...

No matter how carefully you choose your words or how cautiously you weigh a decision, there will always be people who question or criticize your choice. What's the best way to handle those negative comments when we hear them?

Sometimes the comments come from strangers. Maybe an internet troll lambasts you anonymously on Instagram. Or a cashier voices a negative opinion on homeschooling when she sees you out with your children in th...

The Bible tells us children are a blessing. That means, of course, that the babies themselves are a blessing. But thanks to some recent scientific studies, we also now realize that the process of having babies is good for you, too.

That should really come as no surprise to believers. Packing his blessing full of richer and deeper and broader benefits than a human brain can fathom is God's modus operandi. But it's fun when secula...

I think multitasking has gotten a bad rap these days.

Sure, some forms of multitasking are downright foolish: Texting while driving can be deadly. Mindlessly munching on junk food while watching TV is bad for your waistline.

But aside from a handful of ill-advised pairings like the ones mentioned above, I’ve always thought multitasking makes a lot sense. I wouldn’t be able to accomplish half of the things I do without doubling up a...

We all flub up from time to time. None of us are perfect parents. But there are a few very big, but very common parenting mistakes we’d like to avoid or counteract if we can. 

As mothers, we love our children dearly and want the very best for them in life. We want to nurture and protect them and to fill their childhood with wonderful opportunities to learn and grow and create lasting memories. Isn’t that right? 

Yet sometimes, the ...

Do your in-laws give you fits? Are they difficult or demanding? Have you grown weary of even trying to please them?

Imagine how much easier your life and marriage would be if everyone could just learn to get along!

Although I now enjoy a wonderful relationship with my husband's parents, that has not always been the case. We butted heads in pretty significant ways during our early years of marriage. 

But those rocky first years taug...
