Live With Eternal Perspective Podcast Episode 093 - Understanding American History - Interview with Emily Hladik - Part 1

Welcome to the Terri Hitt – Live With Eternal Perspective Podcast
Episode #093 – Interview with Emily Hladik – Understanding American History – Part 1

Thank you for entrusting and investing your precious time with me to grow in Jesus together. I am blessed to be back with you to discuss more ways to live with eternal perspective.

Over the last several weeks, I’ve interviewed several wise and knowledgeable leaders in the homeschool industry. The key is that they are not only able to assist in the world of home education, but love Jesus. The wisdom and understanding they share about knowing children, giving them a full and rich education, and raising them to know and honor Jesus is what sets them apart.

I’m excited to introduce another new guest on the podcast today. Emily Hladik is a wife, a follower of Jesus, and a homeschool mother who shares her passion for truth through eLearning to reach the next generation of American patriots. Emily began teaching as an adjunct college instructor of political science and history in 2004 and has a Master of Education and a BA in Political Science and History. She has also served as the Challenge 1 Director in the Classical Conversations community. Emily doesn’t care much for shopping and decorating, but is passionate about Jesus, history, politics, and is the founder and curriculum creator of Great American Studies. I appreciate her directness and wise views on history and what we must do to honor and uphold it in society today.

Please join me as we converse about the Lord, politics, history, life, children, parenting, and more. Emily has a contagious spirit for all the topics we discuss, but especially Jesus, politics, and history. I think you’ll enjoy hearing her sound and principled thoughts, ideas, and values.

As you listen to Part 1, please bear with the audio at around the 22 through 25 minutes mark. As you know, technology can be tricky, but Emily shares wise advice and experiences, so I hope you’ll adjust your volume where needed and hear the eternal value in our conversation.

I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation with Emily and I hope you did, as well. I invite you to listen next week as we wrap up the interview with Part 2. You can learn more about Emily or Great American Studies at or on Facebook at Great American Studies.

Emily’s courses are great for home or traditionally educated students, as well as parents who want to refresh their mind on history learned long ago. I plan to complete her course with my family soon.

Father God, you have given us so much. You alone are good, holy, sovereign, and always present. We need You so much more than we can comprehend. Help us see You in each moment of our days. Help us to seek Your face as we navigate this world. May we live in sync with Your values and seek Your wisdom before our own or that of this world. May we please You with our thoughts, actions, and words because they are a reflection of Yours. Help us to view history with your heart and eyes and a gratitude for all You have allowed. Cause us to get involved where you call or support others You put in place for such a time as this. May our lives honor and reflect You to a world with blind eyes. We love You, Lord. Help the world see You within us and move ever closer to You. In the precious name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
