Our Favorite Christmas Traditions, 2019 Edition – Yvette Hampton and Aby Rinella (Best of)
How do we keep our focus on Jesus during the Christmas Season? Join Yvette Hampton and Aby Rinella as they discuss their family Christmas traditions (in this pre-COVID-19 episode from our second season). They also talk about some of the most important issues that families face at Christmas, like “when is the appropriate time to start listening to Christmas music?”, “live or fake Christmas tree?”, and what their favorite Christmas cookies are.

“Schoolhouse Rocked” will rock your educational world to the foundations and give you and your kids great hope for the future! The old-school paradigm has proven broken and a new way of learning is here. Don’t miss this important film!” – Kirk Cameron
This is one of the most empowering tools I’ve seen for parents! I was honored to be interviewed in the film and am excited to see it come to fruition. It is amazing! – Israel Wayne, Family Renewal
Yvette Hampton is a homeschool mom through and through, but it wasn’t supposed to be this way. Like so many other homeschoolers, Yvette and her husband, Garritt, said they would NEVER homeschool their kids, but God had other plans. As a mom who is concerned for future generations and for the future of our country, Yvette has a deep passion to see a culture shift by encouraging people through the truth of God’s Word. Her greatest joy in life is being a wife and mom!
Aby Rinella is a former public school teacher turned passionate homeschool mom.
Aby resides in the mountains of the west with her college sweetheart and 3 awesome kids where they enjoy all things outdoors. Aby is a writer and speaker seeking to encourage and inspire women to live the life they were designed to live, to train up their children in God’s Word, and to stand on truth in a culture that has lost its foundation.
