Planning, My plan or HIS?

9:02 AM

With all this talk about planning for the year I thought I would put up a quick post about the most important part to my homeschool planning.


this is the single most important aspect to my decisions for our learning path. Going to God and seeking His plan for each of my children is the only way I will succeed in this homeschooling adventure. These are His children and only He knows the paths they will go on......I need His daily input into these plans so that I can equip them to carry them out. Yes that is what I am doing through homeschooling....

Equipping my children to carry out Gods plan for their lives

That is my job. And if I am not in constant prayer before, during and after I make these plans

the road will be hard

I will be striving in my own strength

I will fail

For without His guidance and strength I can do nothing.

The worlds view of what should be taught is very different then Gods view. Don't let the voices in this world turn you from the goals God has given you for your children. We are walking a narrow path and we need to keep our eyes on the only one that can guide us.

Some things that I revisit every year.......

Ann Voscamps post on Holistic Homeschooling a must read! This is how we plan our day.

My daily time with the Lord.....rising early and spending time being filled so I can pour it out later on my children

Our day begins with devotions.....this year we are using Character Sketches Volume 1
Scripture memory and prayer

Our favorite time......learning about HIStory.....yes because it all is His story! This year my older girls are using Exploring America
and my younger crowd is using the Truthquest Guides for American History.

Read alouds are one of our favorite times and both of these history programs are literature rich!

We are going to try out My access for writing this year. It's an online writing program.

These are a few of the things that will make up our day. The kids are all using different math programs and maybe I'll post about that another day. I really just wanted to share about that most important part of bringing all your plans before God.

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

The road will still not be easy but I can be assured that when God is in control of my plans the outcome will be better. We will be following His plan and that can only bring blessings.

be blessed as you plan and pray for your new learning year!
