Gloria in D Major by Vivaldi
Oh, let me enfold thee, my baby, tonight;
While legions are singing in joyous delight.
A new star has risen to hail thee divine,
For you are a king, but tonight you are mine.

WEMH #156 The Birth of a Nation and Staying Free
Here are some resources you can use to teach about our Constitution and government and I share some thoughts on mothers' roles in preserving our freedom.
Stories of the Government
The Story of Our Constitution by Eva March Tappan
Restoring Our Garden of Liberty
The Care and Culture of Men by David Starr Jordan
WEMH #159 The Price Paid for Freedom
As we continue talking about freedom, as I have mentioned, two of the best ways to help our children appreciate freedom is to let them see what life looks like without it, and to let the see the price that was paid for what they inherited.
Today's sampler falls in the second option as I share the story of a father and a son and what fighting for our freedom cost them.
WEMH #160 There is Hope
This past month we have been taking a look at freedom and celebrating a new nation. We also took a look at another people who were made free under God. In today's podcast I reflect on these lessons the prophets of Israel teach us about how to navigate these storms that are gathering around us. No matter how bad things got, these prophets never lost hope. There is no reason for us to lose hope, either. God is still in charge. There is nothing He has missed. There are no surprises for Him.
