A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. ~Prov. 16:9~

Scriptures for Homeschool Encouragement

I'm compiling a list of scriptures to turn to when I need encouragement to continue on in my calling from God as a homeschooling mom. These are just a few. I plan to update this list from time to time.

Isaiah 54:13-
And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

1 Samuel 16:7b-
....for the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.

Proverbs 3:5-6-
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 22:6-
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Matthew 6:33-
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Luke 6:40-
The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

Ephesians 6:4-
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Philippians 4:6-8-
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

If you have a favorite scripture or two that encourages you in your homeschooling journey please share them with me in the comments below. I would love to add them to the list.

Homeschooling Plans for 2015-2016 School Year

School starts back up in a few more weeks. We're in our 9th year homeschooling. Last year was a busy year but with the Lord's help we persevered. This year in our workboxes are….

Cross Rhodes Academy
Bible- We're continuing with The Most Important thing You'll Ever Study along with Notebooking through the Old and New Testament.

Math- Math U See Zeta (we’re a little behind in Math but it’s okay because we’re working at his pace).

Language Arts- We started Easy Grammar Plus but only got half way through it. We should have this finished by the end of the year. We’re also working through Sequential Spelling 6 and may get to 7 before the end of the school year.

History- We’re continuing our study about America’s History.  My son loved learning about some of the wars so we’re doing more units on them. I stated last year we will be putting together a notebook that will have things about how our government works on all levels (state, federal, ect.). We did not get to that so we will work on this notebook with the new presidential elections getting close.

Science- We didn't finish Apologia’s: Exploring Creation with General Science 2 so we're continuing on with it.

Health/P.E.- We will exercise, study about health and nutrition as well as paying more attention to calories.

Life Skills- daily chores, prepping meals, ect,

Typing- We finished Keyboarding for the Christian School but he needs more work on the speed typing part. That will be the only focus this year.

Foreign Language- We will start on Visual Latin 2. We will have completed all of his foreign language credits by the end of this school year.

This pretty much sums up our year. Lots of learning going on and more work load for him than ever. Praying he can handle the work load and for God’s Will in his life, our home, and school year. Thanks for reading. May God bless your school year too!
