Kristina loves the color orange -- like pumpkins and fall leaves! She loves sunshine and the intricate details of nature. She is privileged to be married to her best friend. They have six children--four boys with a girl on each end, just like bookends! They range in age from twenty-three to five, so she has spent a lot of years with littles and loves how it has refined her. Her husband’s work has enabled them to live overseas in seven different countries. They have experienced international schools, public schools, and homeschooling--which is what they are continuing to do with their four still at home now. She tries to carve out time to draw, paint, read, and practice the violin. She loves the Lord and is grateful for the life He has blessed her with.

Book Discussion: Teaching From Rest (Kristina Powell)Zoom Room 2
If I had to choose a book to share with homeschool moms, or any mom or friend, Teaching from Rest would be it! Sarah Mackenzie has captured in a quick read, the words that reach my heart and mind and strengthen me, encourage me, and help me see a way to include the Lord, so I might truly teach from a state of rest, “trusting that God’s got this, even if I’m a mess, even if I’m not enough, even if I mess up every day. Because I do.” She says that, “[She] desires to teach and mother in a way that pleases God. Some days that feels like feeding the five thousand. But He is not asking [her or us!] to feed the five thousand; He just wants [us] to bring [our] basket of loaves and fish and lay them at His feet.” So come, and let us talk about what our loaves and fish are and see that when we are in need of a “miracle of biblical proportions,” all He needs is our “little basket…just a couple of loaves of bread and a few fish.” I think you will find great purpose in Sarah’s words and I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences with her book. Come join us as we discuss Sarah Mackenzie’s Teaching From Rest: A Homeschooler’s Guide to UNSHAKABLE PEACE. (All are welcome whether you have read the book or not!)
