Have You Prayed Over Your Homeschool?

pray

Amidst all of the back to school chatter, and all of the plans for the upcoming year, don’t forget your number one priority as you prepare for the year-

PRAY OVER YOUR HOMESCHOOL. 

Unless the Lord builds this homeschool, we will labor in vain….

  • As you select curriculum, pray.
  • As you set up your schoolroom, pray.
  • As you develop goals for each child, pray.

This is a time of year where we must be on a prayer offensive. Spend quality and quantity time in the Word. Seek the Lord’s will for your homeschool. It is too easy right now to sucked into Google and all of the information screaming for your attention.

Homeschool mama…the Lord knows what He wants for those precious children. Ask Him. Seek Him. Pray. And Pray some more.

I am spending some time each day really seeking what He wants for our homeschool this year…even if it looks different form my expectation. He is the One who has called me to homeschool, and I trust His plan for our family.

So, please as you make lists, don’t forget the number one thing on that list is to PRAY for your homeschool. Seek the Lord. He will lead you…

Using the Bible as our main textbook (but definitely not our only one…) has been an amazing blessing. I love it for so many reasons! Some of which are…

A Bible based homeschool is about so much more than academics. It is a way of life to be lived everyday…letting the Bible be the center… discipling our children…and knowing that our Teacher knows the plans…and will lead the way.

Why a Bible Based Homeschool?

why

Here are my top reasons for choosing to use a Bible-based homeschooling method:

A family that prays together stays together. Learning the Bible together as a family has been a blessing beyond compare. Digging into the Word together each day has bonded us in unexpected ways and led us into conversations that were so deep and meaningful. It has strengthened our family bond. It also helps us to deal in a biblical and prayerful way when things are NOT going so smoothly. We can apply what we have learned to our daily life.

 

It is OUR job to disciple our children. With so many children’s programs abound at churches and outside activities these days, it is easy to give over the responsibility to another person to teach your child God’s Word. And while I certainly think it is OK for my child to learn from others, I am still my child’s first teacher as commanded by God. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9.) As a parent, I must take the responsibility of discipling my children seriously. A Bible-based homeschool enables me to do so.

God is the author of this world, and what better way to learn about it than to start with His Word? History and science are a part of His creation. What better way to learn about them to start right there in His Word.

BibleBasedEducation

His Word is the only curriculum I know out there that offers a 100% guarantee that it WILL produce fruit. His Word never returns void, and always accomplishes His purposes. I don’t know any other book out there that can make such a promise. As it says in Isaiah 55:10-11

As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

What a beautiful thought? As the rain can only make the earth bud and flourish, so does His Word provide for us.
