Homeschooling High School? Remember When...?

Homeschooling High School? Remember When...?
Homeschoolers are a forgetful bunch.  Each new phase of homeschooling is often met with anxiety and uncertainty.  "Can I really do this?" is a common question, especially when approaching the high school years.  Yet, the Bible has a lot to say about remembering.  In fact, the theme of Deuteronomy is "remember."  Don't forget what the Lord has done. Deuteronomy 8:2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty...

Radical Ideas - Fabulous Results

Radical Ideas - Fabulous Results
It may look like we're nuts to other people.  Even though we may look a little strange to others, taking radical actions can often get fabulous results.  Remember the story about Jesus healing the paralytic? Mark 2:1-11 A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. Some...

Can't You Work For Even An Hour?

Can't You Work For Even An Hour?
Oops.  I got distracted.  I was having my morning quiet time, when suddenly the dog needed to go out.  There are some things that just can't wait.  But 15 minutes later I realize I'm sitting in front of Facebook, and I never finished my quiet time.  I know many of you can relate.  Ironically, I was reading this passage in Mark; Mark 14:37-41 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. "Simon," he said...

Do No Regular Work

Do No Regular Work
I'm reading through the Bible in a year, and I was reading through Leviticus and noticed an interesting trend.  There seems to be a recurring theme.  See if you can catch it in these verses. Do No Regular Work Leviticus 23 3 There are six days when you may work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest , a day of sacred assembly. You are not to do any work ; wherever you live,...

Who Hit You?

Who Hit You?
I'm working my way through Luke, and I was struck by the comment made by guards beating Jesus. Luke 22:64 They blindfolded him and demanded, "Prophesy! Who hit you?" I was thinking about what Jesus would have said about those guards, if he had chosen to speak.  What would Jesus say about a person?  Any person?  If Jesus would describe someone, what would he say? Maybe he would describe the guards physical features, "The tall one"...

"Be Still"

"Be Still"
Life with teenagers is a perfectly calm sea.  Nothing ever goes wrong, and your children will always believe you are blessed among all parents.  They will do no wrong and cause no stress.  The learn eagerly and serve others willingly. Then again, maybe they are human.  Maybe WE are human! There is nothing more human than being stuck and in trouble.  When trouble occurs (and it will) it's just one of those little facts of life...

What Is An Ebenezer?

What Is An Ebenezer?
"Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" is such a familiar hymn.  Here is a Youtube playing the version by David Crowder Band But have you listened to the words?  What in the world is an Ebenezer????  I'm afraid I missed that lesson in Sunday School.  Completely stuck, I resorted to the one way I knew to find the answer;  Google. I found out the word comes from the scripture in 1 Samuel 7:12 Then Samuel took...

Why Study Scripture?

Why Study Scripture?
Quick review; why should we study scripture, again? Because God's word is perfect and good. Because it is renewing, and can make you wise. Because it gives joy - but also gives warnings. Because it gives real rewards that last. Psalm 19:7-11 By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. The...

Can I Give High School Credit for Bible Study?

Can I Give High School Credit for Bible Study?
Can I Give High School Credit for Bible Study? We do Bible as a family everyday. I would guess we spend about 45 minutes a day. Sometimes we simply read the Word and discuss, other times we do a formal study. Plus there is the daily discipleship...Sundays at church, youth group studies, etc... May I give a Bible credit per year to my son, or must he have actually done a formal Bible study with documented...

Free Bible Curriculum!

Free Bible Curriculum!
Homeschooling is an investment in your children, but it doesn't mean it has to be a huge investment of money.  When you want to have a course called "Bible" all you really need is a Bible.  Count the hours you require of your high school students, and when you have 75-90 hours, call it a half credit class.  If you count 120-180 hours, call it a one credit class. If you would like some supplements to...

Not Promised Safety

Not Promised Safety
We are not always promised a safe place.  We are always promised that God is with us. John 6:16-21 Jesus Walks on the Water When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake, where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them. A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough. When they had rowed three or...

Test Scores vs. Values

Test Scores vs. Values
"Failure" in a homeschool doesn't have anything to do with a test score.   Our family has a motto:  "never compare, someone always gets hurt."  This is particularly true when comparing your child's test scores to someone else, or comparing your homeschool to someone else.  In fact, "Failure" isn't about test scores at all. Jeremiah 9:23-24 This is what the LORD says: "Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast...

Homeschool High School: A Step-by-Step Guide
Is homeschooling high school an overwhelming task?  Try focusing on smaller, simpler tasks to achieve your goals.
