Every year I go through a 5 step process to begin my homeschool year. I believe each step is important to remaining focused and teaching my children well, all year long. Over the next 5 days I’m going to share these simple 5 steps with you in hopes that they help you along your own homeschool journey.
The first step on my homeschool prep journey each year is praying. I believe that the only way to ensure that I stay on the right path for our homeschool journey is to bathe the upcoming year in prayer.
It is very easy to get distracted, frustrated and exhausted as a homeschool mom. These truths push me to ensure I’m diligently praying prior to our school year kicking off.
A few of the things I pray for specifically are…
- My heart
- My priorities
- My children’s hearts
- Curriculum Finances
- Curriculum Selection
- Homeschool Schedule
Last year I was thrilled when Rebecca came out with The Homeschool Mother’s Prayer Journal. Starting in July or August (depending on when our school year ends), I started using this prayer journal to pray about our upcoming school year.
Rebecca wonderfully weaves scripture into the preparation a mother takes for her upcoming school year, ensuring that our focus remains on raising our children for the Lord according to His word.
Over the next 4 days I’m going to be sharing 4 more steps I take before beginning a new school year. I am praying that God will direct you and your family to His will for your upcoming homeschool year.
