    Choosing a Verse for Your Homeschool Year

    For as many years as I can remember, we have been choosing a verse for our family each homeschool year. I usually pray about it for awhile and see where the Lord leads. It has been amazing to do this because we have seen each year how the verses truly fit our family and where He led us that year! This year every time I prayed about it, I kept hearing this one in my […]

    31 Days of Praying for Your Homeschool

    Several years ago I had this free printable available, and it was also part of the appendix in my book, Called Home. Last year when I re-released the book, we updated this section without the actual verses. Because of my desire to have women in the Word on their own, we just included the verse reference so that you can look up the verses on your own and in the translation of your choice. There […]
