Hot! Our Firm Foundation

I was thinking about how our homeschool has evolved over the years. I think in the beginning, the Bible was weaved into our daily schedule. Yet over the years, instead of weaving it in and out, it has become the firm foundation we need it to be in order to succeed.

I have often said that I don’t care if my children know all the math and science in the world, if they don’t know God, then I haven’t done my job. What good is it to acquire knowledge without first having godly wisdom?

Call me an underachiever, but what does it matter to be successful in the world’s eyes, but not God’s? Who defines success? I may be an underachiever by the world’s standards, but I am not looking for worldly achievement, but to make disciples– and that my friends is eternal gain.

Read the Word

I started this journey as a call from God. It was not something I wanted to do, and definitely not something I thought I could do. But I did it for Him, and it is all about Him. Yes, our homeschool revolves around Him.

He is the firm foundation, He is weaved throughout all of our lessons, and He has built this homeschool. Without Him I stand alone, and I will fail. He started this journey, He will walk us through it, and He will see it end.

So really, the Bible is a central part of our homeschool- everything we learn is from Him. It isn’t something we add to our studies, but something that we revolve everything around. He created History, Science, and Math. I love seeing His hand in everything. So while we have to be intentional about pointing to Him in each subject, most times, He is revealed to us already- we just need to open our eyes and see.

A Bible-based homeschool is really just what we have naturally progressed to over the years. I couldn’t imagine teaching any other way. He is the foundation of our life, and that most certainly applies to our homeschool. This life He has given us is His and we will walk with Him wherever He takes us.

  1. Yes! I have said that when Jesus sets His feet on this earth again, it won’t matter if the kids know their math facts!

  2. My heart SO agrees with yours! Our children are precious and eternal investments, we are to raise arrows to shoot out into the world( after thieir foundation is sure) with the Lord’s help make a spiritual impact. Thank you for your blog/ministry! What a blessing!
