In a facebook group, one mom was wanting to go for full-on homeschool, and asked about what benchmarks or tests homeschoolers need to aim for. Homeschooling is so open-ended, and none of us want to skip something vital!
As I chimed in with the other moms, it made me remember how we’ve approached homeschool in our family, on a kind of global level, and I thought our approach was worth sharing. If you’re new to homeschooling and overwhelmed by all of the choices, here’s how I managed to sort through it all and figure out what to do for my family; it’s the best recommendation I could give you!
In my opinion, that is the best advice for any homeschooling mom, no matter how far along we are! Just get some time all alone where you can focus for a few hours, and prayerfully use pen and paper to organize your thoughts and plan out your own priorities for your own family.
Then, once you have your goals and your vision in mind, choose a curriculum that helps you get there.
God gave your children to you! He will give you wisdom to raise them wonderfully, as you seek him and pursue sanctification! Trust that God has given you an adequate mind, and all of the resources you need (including the knowledge and ability to gather more resources to yourself, of course!). Don’t trust yourself; trust God. He has judged you fit to raise your children.
And my God shall fulfill all your necessities through his riches with glory in Jesus Christ. (Phil. 4: 19)
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, which giveth to all men liberally, and reproacheth no man, and it shall be given him. (Jas. 1:5)
Thanks for stopping by; please keep us in prayer!
