How to Homeschool?
Go to the Scriptures
Our homeschool journey is very much described by
Prov 16:9 We should make plans – counting on God to direct us. (TLB)
- We wanted to homeschool,
- We have made plans,
- And God has directed us with these Scriptures.
2 Tim 3:16-17 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
Scriptures that have directed us:
These are the scriptures that have directed our understanding of education as we seek to know how to homeschool.
Deut 6:4-7 The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

My encouragement to you:
Start your own Homeschool Journey Journal. In such a jounal you can record the challenges, the answers the Lord gives you, the Scriptures you have for encouragment. In days ahead you will be encouraged by such a record.
