New To Homeschooling?

As you embark on this exciting and yes sometimes difficult journey to educate your children at home, here a few pointers to keep in mind.

First, before you start looking at curriculums or teaching philosophies, it is advisable to spend time seeking the Lord on His idea of education. It was His idea that parents teach their children (Deut. 6:4-7) so it necessary to spend time in prayer seeking Him for the true meaning of education. It is possible that you may become re-educated in the process.

Next, remember that every child is unique and different. Seek the Lord for each of your children. Seek Him for the best method and style that will enable each child to be all that the Lord has called to them to be.

Third, it is vital that you have fellowship with other spiritually like-minded homeschooling moms. You need the friendships, encouragement and support in order to stay steadfast in your homeschooling journey.

Lastly, Relax! “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil.4:6-7)

God bless
