Parenting

Your guide to raising your children in Christ, disciplining them in love, and navigating your role as both parent and teacher.

Christian Parenting

Parent and Child holding hands on the Bible

Discipline with love. Teach children about discipleship. Lead by example.

These are just some of the reasons that parents choose to homeschool their children. With homeschooling, parents have the ability to select a homeschool program that resonates with their family values and their child’s educational goals.

Parenting Children

Being a parent is one of the greatest gifts in life and with this great gift comes responsibility.

Parenting children in today’s society can be an uphill climb at times. We want to parent our children to treat others as they would want to be treated, to make good decisions, to seek wisdom, and to dig into God’s Word.

If you choose to homeschool your child, there are many Christian-based homeschool curriculums that align with these core values that also provide high-quality video courses and lesson plans.

Parenting Teens

As parents of teenagers, our job is to help them navigate the ups and downs of high school, peer groups, and learning to drive.

With home school for high school, parents not only have a hands-on approach with teaching science, math, and literature but also helping your teen build character and grow in faith.

Discipling Your Children

Discipling your children starts in the home. Parents are the ultimate teachers in charge of guiding children into a life of faith and helping to shape the moral fabric of their lives.

If you choose to homeschool, we have found the using a Biblically-based homeschool curriculum reinforces discipling along with the traditional subject matter.
