Scripture passage: John 14:1-7, 15-19


Jesus said to his friends, “Do not let your hearts be troubled.” How is my heart, right now? Can I offer it to Jesus, who speaks peace and love to troubled hearts?

I wonder, do I ever feel like I don’t know the way? Is it hard sometimes to know what I should do, or say, or who I should trust? What do I want to say to God about that?

How does it feel to hear Jesus’s words: “I am the way, the truth, and the life?” 

Jesus calls the Holy Spirit our friend: someone who is for us, who wants the best for us, and who loves to be with us. Can I invite the Holy Spirit to befriend me and walk with me today?

The Holy Spirit also leads us along Jesus’s way. I wonder, can I trust that Jesus’s ways are always good, even when they are hard? That Jesus’s steps of love, forgiveness, and humility will always bring me home to God?


Jesus, you are the way home to God. Jesus, you are the truth of God’s love for us and for the world. Jesus, you are the life that creates and sustains us, and carries us through death into eternal life with God. Send your Spirit to us and help us walk in your ways with joy and gratitude.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Finding Yourself in Motherhood :: Amber O'Neal Johnston [Ep 310]
Amber O’Neal describes herself as a homeschooling mama using Charlotte Mason principles in an atmosphere where “Charlotte Mason wears an afro.” She joins me to talk about how she unexpectedly found she loved homeschooling and working to help her kids love themselves and others. “The Holy Spirit is the supreme educator and the Holy Spirit will speak directly and work directly with our children just as he does through us. And that was a total reframe for me because it gave me a lot of freedom and released a lot of pressure for me when I realized that I'm actually not the supreme educator, I am a guide and I'm going to come alongside my child and that my job is not to teach in the traditional sense of teaching, but more to act as a guide.” Amber shares why she’s creating resources for her children and others to share books and history from people of color and the journey she’s been on with her children as she encourages them to embrace their skin color and cultural history. And her resources and the Charlotte Mason principles aren’t just for homeschooling mamas. She has book lists of great things to read with your children to give them a more holistic view on black history, poetry and culture.
