Be blessed and encouraged as you walk with the Lord and homeschool your children!
Encouragement for Homeschooling
The cat got out, you are out of milk, you just ran out of paper towels and the baby is crying. Oh, and the WiFi just went out in the middle of your video homeschool lesson.
Some days it seems like things are going haywire. If you are looking for a source of encouragement for homeschooling, get connected to a local homeschool community of other like-minded moms and dad.
You’ll be able to share tips and tricks of the trade and to weather the days that go a little crazy.
Encouragement for Moms
From running the dishwasher, to running the classroom, to running the office, moms have a lot of different roles.
Homeschool moms are a great source of strength and guidance for their children and families, but sometimes moms need a little encouragement.
Encouragement for moms comes from prayer, spouses, friends, and can also be found in community whether it is church or a local homeschool group.
Encouragement for Dads
When you are a kid, you think of Dad as being ten feet tall and able to overcome any obstacle in his path.
As you grow older, you realize that dads are actually human and that they can use some encouragement from time to time.
Prayer is a great way for dads to seek encouragement.
Encouragement for Kids
A hug, a compliment, a smile—these are some of the ways we provide encouragement for our kids.
Another great source of encouragement comes through prayer and asking God for guidance for our children.

Encouragement in Scripture
God’s Word is a source of hope and encouragement for all of us.
As a homeschool parent, there is a wealth of encouragement in scripture like in Deuteronomy 6:5-7:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your strength…Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
Pursuing Encouraging Relationships
When children are homeschooled, we are able to instill hope, confidence, and support in their daily lessons by giving them undivided attention.
This helps to strengthen the parent-child relationship. It is also important to pursue encouraging and supportive relationships with friends, family, and community whether it is a homeschool community, neighborhood, or church community.

Teaching and learning can be fun! There are many ways students can learn through real-life experiences including educational travel. Many of us think of educational travel as something that is too expensive or too difficult. But educational travel doesn’t have to be to far-off or expensive destinations. It can include those, but with planning and budgeting, educational travel can be a reality for most homeschooling families! Why is educational travel important anyway? Because students can learn so much more through travel than they can with traditional academics alone! Not only can they learn about the states, cities, landmarks, and map skills in a hands-on way, but they can also learn more about relationship building, problem solving, and other life skills that they can’t learn effectively in any other way. We will share some practical, affordable ways to incorporate educational travel into your homeschool
Sarah Fowler is the first homeschool graduate to serve on a State Board of Education. In this session she will be exploring key education experiences that prepared her for service in state government and how the lack of training in these areas has undermined the ministry and service of others. Sarah will explore the benefits of Christian mentorship in her personal and spiritual development and share how she has reciprocated by mentoring young people as well.
Spelling, Arithmetic, Reading, Dishes, Diapers, Laundry, Cooking….the list goes on and on! Homeschooling mothers wear so many hats. Busy family life can threaten to steal the realization that our hands are holding, guiding and directing eternal souls. This session focuses on recognizing treasure, laying it up in heaven, and loving the family God has given us.
Experience freedom and joy in satisfying relationships as you learn the difference between a counterfeit love and Jesus love, two hindrances to the flow of love, and Gods provision for establishing loving relationships. Everyone wants the homeschooling experience to be satisfying and enjoyable. However, parents and children can unknowingly make idols out of homeschooling and relationships which always results in control and disappointment. Youll be encouraged as you hear how to live to love with Jesus.
Homeschooling parents often have many things they want to teach their children, but what are the most important things that parents can pass down from one generation to the next? In her talk “Important Things to Teach Our Families” Ruth Adams seeks to encourage parents to intentionally disciple their families in the process of daily learning and living. Ruth is the author of the book “Legacy Reflections of a Homeschooled, Homeschooling Mama” and shares out of almost four decades of involvement in homeschooling both as a student and now as a Mama to seven. Ruth understands the joys and struggles of homeschooling many children and is passionate about helping other mamas embrace the ministry within their homes.
The secret to success in Homeschooling is theres no secret! The elements of success in Homeschooling match those in discipleship, marriage, parenting, entrepreneurship and gardening.
My husband introduced me to gardening in 1981. I was ready to wean our 13-month old twins to baby food. He argued for a garden because we dont know whos bottling that! When I balked he said Sweetie Pie, gardening is like pastoring and parenting. All require daily attention to detail in the same posture of humility, head bowed, body bent. Folks who dont have time to garden probably dont have time to parent. I joined him in the garden and learned the secret works in discipleship, marriage, parenting, entrepreneurship, gardening, and of course homeschooling. It isnt easy but its also not complex. Homeschooling three sons to a state of holistic health required a challenging yet simple Morning by Morning approach. Id love to share our Why and How Homeschooling secrets with you.

Do you make it a priority to arrange your life to avoid overwhelming situations? Do you get rattled when you have a lot to do in a short amount of time? Do your childrens moods deeply affect you? If you answered yes to some or all of these questions you may be a highly sensitive person or HSP. Understanding your personal strengths and weaknesses as an HSP can help your homeschool world become more peaceful and manageable. In this seminar, I will explain what it is like to be a highly sensitive homeschooling mom and how God can help you to faithfully teach your children even on the toughest days.
Teaching is not for the faint of heart. Mix in a child with learning challenges and you may end up becoming very discouraged, and possibly, ready to throw in the towel. Be encouraged, you are NOT alone. Whether your child has been diagnosed with a learning challenge or simply doesn’t “get”? math, come to this workshop to learn some teaching strategies and techniques. Help your child overcome those learning challenges and succeed in math.
As Christian families, let’s raise our daughters to DARE TO DREAM about God’s purposes, to DARE TO CRY for the needs of the world, and to DARE TO OBEY God’s Great Commission. In this session, you’ll be inspired by God’s passion for the lost and the needs of the world. As homeschooling families, let’s help our daughters to find God’s clarity for life, with a love for His Word, a commitment to live for Him, and a compassion for others.
When we think of educating our children, we often think of our children sitting at desks or the kitchen table using textbooks and workbooks. While this kind of teaching/learning is enjoyable to some students, most students (and parents!) enjoy breaking out of the more traditional classroom setting in exchange for ideas and activities that are more fun! It is possible to incorporate alternative kinds of teaching and learning into your homeschool, and it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive! There are ways to use hands-on activities, dance, poetry, drama, experiments, fun literature-related activities, music, travel, and more to spice up your homeschool! If you’re in a homeschool rut or if you’re just not sure how to add a little fun and adventure to your homeschool, we would love to share some ideas and information with you! Your children will thank you (Ok…it may be years from now! But they will!) and your family may discover a new love for learning this school year!
For the past thirty-five years, homeschooling has been looked at by many men largely as something their wife does. Many believe that if they pay the bills, that is really all that God expects of them. Biblically speaking, what should dads do in the homeschooling process?
