Oikos Live – Episode 35 (Dec. 2018)

A few key points covered in this video.

  • Last few days of 2018
  • Challenging year
  • Excellent 2019 ahead of us
  • Challenges of live streaming will not stop us – we press through and hope to achieve even more
  • 35 Episodes of live streaming in 2018 – approximately three per month
  • Testimony from a mom about burn out
  • Being still – time in the Word – read aloud time.
  • Chronic illness
  • Watch videos on the founding scriptures
  • Videos on the site – they are there for you – we plan to bring you more – we are serious about helping you on this journey with your family.
  • Encouragement to watch the videos – it is free
  • Burn out testimony from mom
  • This mom felt that she could give her children a better academic education at home than what the system of the school could give them
  • Then burn out – she put her children back in school
  • A sense of failure, even so, she brought her children home again after putting them in the system of the school
  • Heavy laden distressed heart
  • The KONOS manual – lessons plans
  • Intentional about de-formalizing herself
  • Review your lot – minimise – remove what you can from your load
  • You run more of a risk in doing more – even if you have high achieving children – less is still best
  • Spend time equipping yourself with less is best
  • Make it your ambition to lead a quiet and simple life
  • Societies ambition is to pack as much as you can into life instead of keeping it simple
  • Read through KONOS activities and pick ones which are appropriate to your family.
  • Pick one activity and start.
  • Children share one another strengths and passion with each other when doing KONOS activities
  • The best way to de-formalize yourself is to do KONOS and not be afraid of it.
  • Training children’s character
  • No need to overlap the lessons – when a KONOS activity covers language there is no need to do more language studies that same day – you can skip language.
