Want fresh ideas & free resources to make your home happier, healthier, and more harmonious?
We’ve got you covered!
My name is Jennifer Flanders. I’m a Christian wife and homeschooling mother of twelve and grandma to 20. Although I’m the one who does most of the writing here, this blog was really the brainchild of my husband, Doug.
When he saw how much time I spent fielding phone calls from folks with questions about homeschooling and parenting, he suggested I build a website and put the answers to the ten or twelve most frequently asked questions online, then refer callers there for more in-depth answers.
And, viola! Flanders Family Home Life was born!
Although our website has grown a lot since those humble beginnings, our objective is still the same: to share helpful tips, heartfelt encouragement, honest answers, and practical resources, and biblical solutions to problems parents face (especially those who are trying to homeschool):
If you click through any of the above links, you may notice some of them direct you to my other blog, Loving Life at Home. Since not all parents have partners and not all couples have children, I generally address topics related to parenting/ homeschooling here and matters related to love/ marriage there — although there’s inevitably a little overlap (as demonstrated by the above link list).
Thirty-six years of marriage. Twelve children. Twenty grandchildren (and counting). People often tell us we have our hands full — and they’re right! — but our hearts are full, too. They are filled to the point of bursting with love for one another, joy for living, and gratitude to God for blessing us so richly with all these precious souls — in addition to a beautiful Savior who shed his blood to save us all from our sin.
Our family motto can be found in 1 Corinthians 10:31, “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Honoring God and pointing others to Jesus: That is our goal in our home, with our words, in our thoughts, through our actions, at work, at rest, at play, on this blog, in our books, and through our podcast. In all our ways, we want to make Christ known. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
