Ep. 148: Determination, Discouragement, & Doomscrolling
Over the last week we went hunting and to a volleyball game and the kids experienced varieties of determination that spark a few questions like, "why doesn't the other team just give up?" This naturally leads to moments where we're discouraged specifically contrasted by a sermon on Zechariah and a comment by a popular homeschool guru. As usual we have recipes and rabbit trails along the way.
