Live With Eternal Perspective Podcast Episode 094 - Understanding American History - Interview with Emily Hladik - Part 2

Welcome to the Terri Hitt – Live With Eternal Perspective Podcast
Episode #094 – Interview with Emily Hladik – Understanding American History – Part 2

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.

The feedback for the Part 1 episode with Emily Hladik from last week has been wonderful. I appreciate those who give input and let me know the ways God is speaking to you through the episodes. Today I air Part 2 of my interview with Emily. If you haven’t listened to Part 1 yet, I suggest you do before listening to this one as we pick up right where we left off last week. Emily has so much wisdom and knowledge to share and I don’t want you to miss any of it!

As a brief reminder, let me share that my guest for this podcast is Emily Hladik, a wife, follower of Jesus, and a homeschool mother who shares her passion for truth through eLearning to reach the next generation of American patriots. 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, godly views on history and what we must do to honor and uphold it in society today.

In Part 2 of this interview, we dig deeper into American history, politics, religious history in America, the truth about separation of church and state, God’s longsuffering and judgement, and parental rights. So much to cover in such a short interview, but we do it. I could speak to Emily for hours and from the response I’ve received, I think you could listen to her for hours, as well.

Listening to Emily reminds us that living with eternal perspective also includes keeping a heart and mind focused on authentic history and remembering what has occurred so that we preserve the freedoms set and allowed by God Himself for His purposes. Nothing we receive or own comes from our own hand. God allows the privileges we carry and the reasons are not for selfish gain, but for the good of His kingdom and purposes to honor Him. That we have enjoyed so much because of the suffering of Jesus and the patriots before us is a heavy burden. We must understand and appreciate our privileges in order to preserve them for the next generation. We are alive and living in this period for such a time as this.


What a wonderful conversation with Emily! You can learn more about her or Great American Studies at or on Facebook at Great American Studies.
I will leave the links in the show notes.

Emily’s courses are great for home or traditionally educated students, as well as parents who want to refresh their mind on history never taught to them, or learned long ago. I plan to complete her course with my family soon.

May we each view history with truth and greater clarity, eyes on Jesus, and a heart for what matters to God. May we view the future in the same way with a godly desire for Jesus that propels us to act as He calls.

Father God, Your mercies are everlasting. Your kindness to us immense. You are the Great I Am, yet You look on us with such love. Yet, as a Good Father, You also call us to obedience and You discipline those You love. Father, help us to clearly see Your will for us and not flinch or run from it. Help us to cling to You, drawing nearer consistently, whether times are hard or easy. May we be open vessels for You to pour into, allowing us to be Your hands and feet in a parched world that needs Your living water. God, my heart cries for the ways we let You down, the ways we do not recognize the mercies of Your hand or the gifts You lovingly dispense. Open our eyes and hearts, allow our mindset to shift to Yours. May we be hurt by what hurts You and compelled to act where You call. May we stand for what You stand for, and may we rely on You to prompt and carry us, to strengthen us for the battles ahead. May we kneel to You and not this world. May we crave Christ over culture and lovingly exemplify You in our thoughts, words, actions, and lifestyles. Father, may we adore You and shine You like the sun as we carry You within us each day. Draw others to You through us. In the precious name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
