My Top 7 Benefits of Christian Homeschooling

My Top 7 Benefits of Christian Homeschooling

Hi Friends!

Today I am going to share with you what I believe are some of the most important reasons to homeschool, and some huge benefits also as a Christian homeschooler. After years of homeschooling, and years of leading and meeting hundreds of homeschoolers I have complied My Top 7 Benefits of Christian Homeschooling! These are not only incredibly important benefits to my family, but also the most common benefits I heard from many of my fellow likeminded homeschoolers.

My Top 7 Benefits of Christian Homeschooling

      1. JESUS! I have to start with my favorite! As homeschoolers we can add Jesus, the bible, or any form of biblical worldview into ANY subject. I personally seek out curricula that has biblical worldview and/or scripture or biblical teaching intertwined into the learning. I have met moms who view bible as a separate subject, but my homeschool is part of my home and in my home I want God in every part of it! We can pray when math is a struggle, we can use scripture for copy work or character training, and I personally want to invite God into every inch of my home and homeschool. That is my #1 Benefit of Christian Homeschooling.
      2. Schedule. My husbands work schedule has never been an 8-5, and he has never worked Monday through Friday. I knew when I married him, our schedule would never resemble the “norm”. If I sent my kiddos to public school they would never see daddy before bed, and they would miss out on so much precious family time. I have always schooled around my husbands work schedule, and it totally works for us. We school on Saturdays and play on weekdays to avoid crowds. Huge perk of homeschooling for us!
      3. Curriculum. We are in charge of what our children learn. I don’t have to worry about what class, what books, or what ideas my kids would be exposed to when I am not present. It is extremely important to me that I choose the books, the materials, and basically anything that we use to educate our kids.
      4. People. Not only can I choose what they learn when, but I can choose who! Yes and why wouldn’t I ? These days if you allow your child to take a class or play a sport, normally you drop them off and another adult (s) can influence your child in whatever way. They can offer their views, ideas, and sometimes poor attitudes all for our children to witness. We can easily control that by being vigilant about who we allow our children to be around. This goes for not only adults they would be in the presence of, but also other children.My Top 7 Benefits of Christian Homeschooling
      5. Flexibility. This one is hard to grasp the concept of for many homeschooling moms, however once you do it is invaluable to you as the mom & teacher of your homeschool. Flexibility… learn to use it, it will come in handy as often as Grace in your homeschool! Every day something will happen inevitably; sick child (the more children you have the more likely) or an unexpected errand, maybe a neighbor needs your assistance, honestly all sorts of things may arise and the KEY here is to always be flexible. We can double up on math tomorrow, that passage we can add in at dinner and discuss, or maybe we can revisit that project next week. Whatever the case, learn to roll with it instead of allowing it to detour everything. I read a book from Heidi St. John years back and when she talked about flexibility something clicked for me, and I haven’t looked back when we miss something or need to rearrange the day like I used to. So I recommend her book as well as adopting the flexibility philosophy as a homeschool momma!

    1. 6. Time. This is different from scheduling, this is TIME! Time I have with my precious kids, time I would never get if I was sending my kiddos out of the house daily, or at all. Time to cook, laugh, read, watch movies, learn, serve others, talk, all those things that we wouldn’t be doing with our children if they were somewhere other than home. Time they will remember.
    2. 7. Education. Besides the obvious – educating your children, what about for mom? It’s almost surreal the amount of things that mom will learn during her journey of “teaching” her children. I love that not only am I revisiting so many subjects that I otherwise would never research again if I weren’t a homeschooler, but all the life lessons and character training for myself is invaluable. You get stretched beyond what you think you are capable of!  You get the chance at another level of education for yourself, that to me is another wonderful perk to this homeschooling journey! And of course the obvious, watching your kids learn, seeing those light bulbs going off, and getting to witness them flourish!


 

It’s a beautiful journey, and I feel pretty blessed by it all! If you are thinking about homeschooling I encourage you to pray about it. Stepping out in faith to take on such a responsibility has huge rewards for your family, with many benefits! I am available as a homeschool consultant if you are new to homeschooling or feeling overwhelmed by all of the options, reach out to me and we can get you on the right track without all the stress!

    All great points, thanks! As a homeschool graduate (who now homeschools her own children), I don’t think I often realize the value of home education because it’s been my whole life. There have been times in my life when I just wish I had more time to myself, but I recognize that these are valuable days.

      Thanks Rosanna, I love hearing from homeschool graduates and curious about their perspectives. Thanks for sharing that!

  2. Shannon Bursey

    Thank you so much for this list! I agree with EVERY point and has been why I chose to homeschool. Even though that has been the case, I find it difficult to articulate when asked “why do you homeschool?”. That said, I’m so glad to have a reference that aligns with my thoughts to refer those questions to.

    1. gracegrowedify

      Truth! Isn’t it funny how we know WHY, but when asked it’s seems so hard to put into a simple answer! lol Thanks for stopping by friend!

  3. anu/growing curious minds

    I agree with every point on this list. I LOVE being with my boys! And I’m learning so many new things that I never knew before. Great blog!
