A guide to prayer for homeschool parents and their children.
Prayer for Your Children
Several years ago, God burdened my heart that I was not praying His Word over my children like I should, so I started putting together what would become a very helpful prayer guide for myself and my family. The impact on my children of the Lord calling me to pray this way has been incredible!

Teaching several grade levels all together can seem daunting. However, what might at first appear to be overwhelming can be turned into an asset in your homeschool. Let’s look together at planning ahead, group teaching, leading older children in sharing knowledge (and boundaries for this approach), and ideas that bring the family together.
Desiring to be homeschool moms and wives who endure with hope in the race set before us, we will go over how to maintain JOY. The secret is something that we need to do daily (if not moment by moment). You will find this session encouraging as Brandy shows you that you can go through and come out of this journey with a smile on your face; not just surviving but thriving!
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.
Intentionally living out Godliness through the living Gospel everyday should be my goal as a mama, wife, teacher, and friend. When life gets crazy, where do we turn? Or who do we turn into? The learning my children receive not only comes from books, but more importantly, it comes from a life wholly dedicated to God. A life that LIVES OUT THE GOSPEL.

Life can be very difficult and many feel helpless and defeated when struggles become too much to handle. As I share my story in my book, Our Only Hope, I describe the extreme hardships I faced throughout my youth and adult life, more than most individuals could imagine facing in an entire lifetime.

I will guide you down a path of unimaginable hope and a new-found purpose for your life.
We all know that the Bible instructs us to flee evil desires, but how is that possible when the bait is so tempting? In this workshop, we will discuss the doctrine of sanctification, specifically as it relates to the work of the Holy Spirit coupled with our obedience to Gods commands in Scripture. We will learn how to respond biblically to temptation through the put off/put on process and also learn what it means to radically amputate sin from our lives.
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.

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.

Come learn how to choose what they should write: ensuring passages that are grade-appropriate and incorporate ideal letter combinations for handwriting mastery. Manually writing subject material is a way to enhance learning and retention, so let’s have them write the Word!
Busy mamas find themselves spinning many plates at once and are often left feeling like they are surviving rather than thriving.

America is a nation based on the Law of Moses, given by God to His prophet at the foot of Mt. Sinai thousands of years ago. As a faithful Christian nation following those ancient principles, America has been wise, good and prosperous. To remain such, we must reinforce and restore our Christian principles. Our colonial pastors and Founders openly taught Christianity, extolling the benefits of freedom that would result from living by Gods Word.
Humanism, the sworn enemy of liberty and Christianity, seeks to destroy our national Judeo-Christian heritage. We must understand and defend ourselves from this desolating plague; but how? Join us to learn Christianitys essential contributions in the home and nation that preserve Americas greatness.

Have you ever had war break out during a play date? A single math lesson take three hours? Find your child turns every object into a pretend weapon? Then maybe you’re raising a boy! Hal and Melanie Young have SIX sons and a wealth of experience and Biblical principles – and a sense of humor – to encourage and empower the parents of boys.
In a time when over 90% of boys have been exposed to pornography before they leave home, how can we teach them to keep their way pure? How can we help them walk in innocence when temptation lurks on a friend’s phone and beckons just a click away? Hal and Melanie offer frank and practical advice for teaching sons from toddlers to adulthood about God’s gift and Satan’s traps in the realm of sexuality. (Material is appropriate for ages 12 and up – parent discretion suggested!)
The 4-5 years and high cost of traditional college often impedes Great Commission obedience. This need not occur: the foreign language and cross-cultural skills needed to minster the Gospel to unreached peoples also comprise the core of a liberal arts degree. Learn how, via credit-by-exam and portfolio assessment, engaging in Christian missions can yield both a B.A. degree and foster an agenda for graduate school.
Does your child have a comeback for everything you tell him to do or always try and get the last word, even if its mumbled under his breath? Does he become mad and lose control when you discipline him rather than repenting? Or does he seem indifferent, giving the impression that discipline doesnt faze him in the least? Through biblical insights and powerful drama, learn how to avoid the snares of parent-provoked anger and raise emotionally healthy children. (Caution: Drama might frighten small children)
We live in a culture growing increasingly hostile to Christianity. But God can use our words to affect minds and hearts. Come learn about the power of apologetics and worldview in the life of your family and how to raise confident, courageous communicators who will make a difference in the world.

We will talk about how to blow away the fluff to get down to whats really important! Join Lori as she shares how to get back to the Heart of the Matter.
Prayer for Your Family
As a Christian homeschool parent, saying a prayer for your children prior to starting the day’s lesson is a great way to get centered and focused on God’s word and will for the day. There are also several homeschool prayer guides to get you started.
Prayer is one of the most valuable tools that God give us. When we draw near to God through prayer for our marriage, for our family, and for our children, we strengthen our relationship with Him.
Prayer for Peace
All moms and dads yearn for a peaceful home. When you are a homeschool parent, you can sometimes lose focus.
Making sure to carve out time for prayer daily is essential to staying the course. Pray for peace, guidance, and understanding for the day’s lessons and activities.
Prayer for Strength & Peace
Homeschool isn’t always easy. Homeschool parents have bad days just like everyone else. Sometimes the kids don’t listen or maybe they are having a hard time learning a concept. It can be frustrating at times.
Prayers for strength and wisdom will help get through these rough patches and get refocused.
