  • Discipleship

    Raising our children and educating them could be described as, "a long obedience in the same direction." The longer we homeschool, the more we believe that to be obedient, to stay on the "narrow pathway" that Jesus described, we need the Lord desperately, and we also need each other.

  • Encouragement
    Encouragement

    Encourage means, "to inspire with hope, courage, or confidence; hearten."

     

    "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up." I Thessalonians 5:11

It is one of the highest priorities for our church leaders and, I think, for us as parents. After all, we are the leaders of our children.

 But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word. ~ Acts 6:4 ESV

 I've been a Mom for over six years now so it makes sense that prayer would be very important to me. With the blessing of having my children, and the stresses known to come with them, I pray WAY more now than I used to.

 As a Mother of two girls (so far) my priority is to raise my girls to become strong Godly Women – Proverbs 31 kind of women. From the moment I found out I was pregnant I have prayed that the Lord would work through me for Him. Make me the Mother they need me to be so that they may become the people He wants them to be.

 You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. ~ Deuteronomy 11:18-19 ESV

 I recently came across this Bible Verse and it made me think. Yes, I'm teaching my children to study the Bible. It's a huge part of our school day: Bible, Reading, Writing, Science, etc. But, am I really teaching my daughters how to pray? I mean, she knows the Lords prayer. She knows to begin her prayer by thanking God. But does she know HOW to pray for others? Does she truly know the power of prayer?
