Description

Do you feel overwhelmed at the thought of decluttering your house?  Do you find yourself constantly trying to meet the expectations of others (and even yourself), but often failing?  Wonder why you just can't seem to get rid of something that you don't even like or use?  Do you struggle to understand what Freedom in Christ truly means for your everyday life and think that maybe there's more than just physical clutter holding you back?

Through this course, together we will discover what Freedom in Christ really means - not just in the broadest theological sense but in a tangible and applicable sense.  We'll go through the process of decluttering your home, one category at a time.  Along the way, we'll confront the two primary reasons people hang on to stuff way too long.  And by the end, we'll have gone from chaos to calm - mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

You'll only need three things to get started: 1. A copy of the book Making Room for Jesus by Laura Baggett (available on Amazon).  2. Printable study questions (found inside various units of the course itself).  3. (Most important!) A desire to grow and learn.

Let's get started!


Who is the target audience?

Math Professor and Homeschool Mom

Hi everyone! (Or Hey Y'all for any fellow Southerners!) My name is Laura Baggett. I am a math professor and a homeschool mom. I have a BS in Math from Auburn University (War Eagle!) and an MS in Applied Math from Georgia Tech. Including two years as a graduate teaching assistant at Georgia Tech, I have almost 14 years of experience teaching math at the college level, including 4 years as a full-time instructor. I have taught courses ranging from College Arithmetic to Differential Equations. I've been teaching online for Kaplan University since April 2010 and here on Udemy since 2014.

I grew up in Hartselle, Alabama, a small town roughly halfway between Birmingham and Huntsville. I have been married to my husband, David, for 16 years, and we have two children: our son is 10, and our daughter is 8. My "main" job is being a stay-at-home, homeschool Mom, and I love that teaching online allows me to be at home with them. When I'm not cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, teaching my children or going to church, I ... well, that's pretty much all I do! But I also enjoy playing the piano, reading (especially Jane Austen), writing, and speaking. I'm also a huge SEC football fan, and I love 80's music. :)

I have traveled to 49 states (still lack Alaska!) and 11 different countries. We have moved 13 times over the past 18 years!  Most recently, we moved from Arkansas to Northwest Georgia. My husband is a prosthetist/orthotist, which means he makes artificial limbs and braces, and most of the moves have been for his education and job. Thank goodness teaching online is "portable!"

Well, that's probably more than you ever wanted to know about me. :) I am really looking forward to getting to know each of you during the course.
