-No need for guided imagery when you have the real thing at home.
-Alternatives to media with your subscriptions (video subscriptions that you like)
-Character studies in some old stories (but you can make up your own)
-Staying in your own "Inn"
-Keep a log of your home/house activities

Please enjoy being home while you listen to the broadcast.

Hi Lydia - really enjoyed your lesson today..... thank you..... funny that you mentioned Mary Kay - I actually met her when she came to Sydney for a visit (late 70s I think) I had been using her products & I still use them today.... she was such a lovely woman - immaculately dressed & her makeup of course, was gorgeous! Thank you for the memories!! xx

Loved your talk, your home looked Soo cozy. The reading from Mrs. Dunwoody's book was so nice, have a very blessed week aheadπŸ™πŸ€—

I just love these talks, and I am so glad you give everything a spiritual slant. It is so comforting to have the Biblical truths and wisdom applied to everything we do. It truly is like having a wise Grandmother speaking❤️

My senior year of high school (1980), A Portrait of Dorian Gray" was mandatory reading, along with Oedipus the King and Silas Marner. I wonder what they're doing in public high school today. Thank you for traveling the old paths with us.

Im so glad that another youtuber (Mom Delights) gave you a shout out. Your talk is like balm to my soul. My own mother lives 9 hours away so its wonderful that during this time I can listen to you and glean from an older christian woman. Thank you.

Lydia where did you get your aqua lights? That's my favorite color.😊

Lydia said...

I did a search for Aqua mini lights and found them. Two strands together are what you see. Other colors available are a beautiful mint green and violet

Simplemom3 said...

Thank you. Would you care to give me a link?

Simplemom3 said...

Also, are the lights fairy lights or more like Christmas lights? Thanks so much 😊

Simplemom3 said...

Lydia you're too sweet. Thank you so much. Your lights are gorgeous around your doorway. 😊

I was thinking on all you had to say to us today while being happily occupied with my morning chores. One wonders what they listened to before homemaker radio came into our homes.😊 I, for one, am so thankful and blessed to have these interesting broadcasts while doing ordinary, repetitive duties around the home.

Your discussion on practicing discernment in the reading materials we give to our children was so wise. I recall my own children reading some of the Curious George books; a monkey who is always disobeying and getting into trouble. The books always end with everything turning out fine but never any consequences for George’s disobedience? I concluded the hidden message — the end justifies the means. πŸ€”I soon discouraged these books and explained the pitfalls of these somewhat entertaining series of books for children. Mothers at home need to guide and censor carefully the literature we allow our children to feed upon.

Thank you again, Lydia, and your aqua lights are beautiful. I have never seen aqua lights displayed before… so serene looking.

Good morning πŸŒ»πŸŒ„ dear lady!

Just viewing some past entries on your blog and spotted this offer. Would love to read about it, thank you very much!

So far, my walking protocol consists of two complete loops around the property, at two different times. Once in the morning & again later in the afternoon, always ahead of dusk. πŸŒ†πŸŒ‡

I'm very serious about walking, first being inspired by your beautiful talks. And then after the recent procedure, it was explained to me how the action of gentle walking around inhibits the formation of scar tissue. So double the reason!

Again, thank you for your time, patience and friendship!

Loving you and yours,

Lydia, thank you so much for the suggestion of creating your own news. Almost by accident I discovered I was doing this through a media fast for a church event; when I realized what was meant by it I became much more conscious of the impact it was having on my life - and it was very positive. I was not nearly as distracted or concerned or nervous. It really did make a difference in my life, and is a habit I intend to continue.

Thank you Lydia for such an encouraging video. You give me such good insight to various subjects.

Janine said...

Love all of this! Many things you mentioned I have, or am in the process of, implementing. The picture of Dorian Gray affected me as a teen and I have it on my curriculum list for my son, as well. Love the aqua lights...they would go well in my living room. Right now I have multi colored ones over my drapes for January, then I switch to white and intertwine a strand of hearts for Feb and shamrocks for March.

Hello Dear Lydia,

I hope you are well.

I have been going through my subscriptions and unfollowing all the news and negativity. I have been filling my mind with your videos.

I noticed you haven't posted in awhile. I pray you and yours are in good health. Your words are missed!

In love,

Lydia said...

I hope to post again soon. I had forgotten about talking to you all while ironing. Maybe I can do that again. The house upkeep is what has been filling up my time and keeping me away from here so I might have to work while I talk.

Lydia, I so enjoyed your lovely homemaker's radio sharing today. I was able to turn it on while I was doing some other projects. I love Jane Austen books, and enjoyed all your reading and movie suggestions too. We cannot be too careful about what we put in front of our eyes. I love to use mini lights around my home in the winter months, it helps to have this special ambiance. I also love the timer taper candles that I got from Amazon, they come on right at dinner time, and are so lovely. Many blessings to you dear friend!

Dear Lady Lydia,
Thank you so much for home schooling me. You're comments are so inspiring. There are so many rich nuggets in every teaching. I appreciate the readings and am most touched with the reminder you gave at the close. "Stay close to Christ"

Hello Mrs. Sherman,
I love listening to you while I work about the house. Most often, you join me in the kitchen or whilst I'm doing laundry. I'm afraid I don't always have the best attitude about the kitchen since sometimes others don't think twice about leaving their messes for me. Oh well, life is short and time together shorter still. I appreciate your company.
I'd love to hear you talk more about your sewing and how you do certain household tasks even though "we're not all the same". Sometimes hearing how someone else does things helps us get new ideas.
Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage,
