Deuteronomy 6:5-7 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Have you ever considered Home Educating your child?

There is a lot to think about and it can be very daunting but with a good support network you can succeed and love the journey the Lord leads you in. Firstly explore what God’s Word says about a child’s education and why Christian Education matters. I recommend Simon Turpin’s book Leading Them Out. Why Christian Education Matters or watch his excellent presentation

Next make contact with other home educating families in your local area, there are people at Beacon church who home educate and there is an active community locally, this will help you gain confidence. So too will realising the wealth of excellent resources available to Christian home educators. Here are some you can purchase https://www.conquestbooks.co.uk, https://answersingenesis.co.uk/store/curriculum. Here’s some free complete curriculums https://www.amblesideonline.org, https://allinonehomeschool.com. There are many local groups and activities that you can engage with so don’t be concerned you’ll struggle with socialising.

To go deeper read Israel Wayne’s book Education: Does God have an Opinion? Pray and take time to listen to the leading of the Holy Spirit. To take your first steps and understand your options and obligations visit https://www.theschoolrun.com/home-education-step-by-step or https://chessuk.org

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
