Your guide to helping raise your children in Christ as a homeschool parent.
Discipling Your Kids
How do we disciple our kids and lead them to walk the path of faith?
Teaching our kids to follow Jesus starts at an early age. We teach them right from wrong, we teach them limits and boundaries, we praise them when they do something good.
This children’s gospel song comes to mind: “This little light of mine. I’m going to let it shine.” This simple song has a huge message.
It is a song about shining the light of Jesus Christ so that others may see it and want to be a part of it, too.
Teaching Your Kids about the Bible
Daily devotionals, Sunday school, daily prayers, and reading Scripture are just some of the ways that we can teach our kids about the Bible.
Other ways to bring the Bible to life are through multimedia—music, videos, cartoons.
There are also homeschool curriculums centered around Christianity that are accessible via download, streaming, or with a monthly subscription.
Teaching Your Kids to Stand Up for Jesus
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6
We want our kids to be confident in their sense of self, in their knowledge of God’s word, and in their value and self-worth.
We best teach our children by modeling so if we want our kids to stand up for Jesus, we need to show them how.
As our children get older, the influence of peer groups is much greater. We need to teach our children to make good choices when it comes to friends as well.
Family discipleship, or teaching your family to love God, can be done through serving others, fellowship at church and in the community and also through homeschool education.
Whether you are a parent, grandparent, sibling, or foster parent, home school provides a unique opportunity to teach children about how to follow Jesus and to love one another.
