Praying Over Your Homeschool

Praying over your homeschool - Free printable! Surenderedmom.com http://www.surrenderedmom.com #homeschool

I don't know about you, but I find that generally this time of year we get into a homeschool slump. That's been especially true this year because we've just been so insanely busy that burnout seems to be looming in the horizon. We've also been fighting off sickness after sickness it seems, so our motivation and energy are both extremely low at the moment. In an attempt to be proactive, I've created a little game plan to help us push through.

First of all, we decided to switch up our curriculum a bit. Sonlight just has been a bit much for us at this stage of life. I find that the workload and time it takes to complete just isn't working for us. We need much more flexibility, so I've decided to give Five in a Row a go. So far, we're really enjoying it, and I can definitely see myself using it with the next two kiddos, too! 

As well as the curriculum change up, we've been planning our trip to the Teach Them Diligently homeschool conference next month. It's given us something to look forward to and get excited about. We're making the trip into a little mini-vacation as well and are looking at doing some fun family outings while we're there, including visiting the aquarium and the children's museum. (Fun and educational...go us!)

Most importantly, I've spent time looking up scriptures that apply to homeschooling and am planning over the next 30 days to pray these scriptures over our family. Some I'll pray over myself as I try to teach and train my children not only educationally, but spiritually as well. Some I'll pray specifically over my kids, as well as praying that their ears will hear and their hearts will be fertile soil. Some I'll be praying over us all! Each day, I'll be writing out the scripture in my prayer journal and praying about how it affects us specifically, and I encourage you to join me! Grab the free printable below!

There are many more scriptures throughout the Bible that are relevant to homeschooling and parenting, and if you have a favorite, leave me a comment below and let me know. I hope this 30-day prayer plan is a blessing to your family and your homeschool!

  1. Oh Cameron I feel ya! Homeschooling is hard enough without sick ones to take care of. Glad you found a curriculum that is working for you now.I have heard good things about 5 in a row and I should really try it because i have 5 children! But I sort of copy the general theme;) Thank you so much for these verses! And that I can download it! How great! I know it must have taken a lot of time to put together!

  2. Hi, Cameron! I have found that homeschooling is all about flexibility, especially when it comes to curriculum. Homeschool convention trips are an amazing experience to connect with other homeschool families and restore us homeschool Moms for that following school year. Thanks for sharing this wonderful printable of scriptures to pray over homeschool, with #SocialButterflySunday! Hope to see you link up again this week :)
