If you’re a Christian homeschooler, your child’s education should be founded on the Word of God.

Over the years I’ve come across some essential scriptures for my homeschool. These Bible verses have carried me through tough times. They have also kept me focused on the educational goals I have for my children.

Here are 5 scriptures which are essential to the Christian homeschooler.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

This particular scripture is the cornerstone of my homeschool. It’s one of the core reasons for our homeschool journey.

I’m homeschooling because I want to be the one who trains up and raises my children. I want to teach core Christian values and impress holiness upon them.

Whenever I have doubts or want to quit homeschooling, I return to this scripture. It reminds me of my core purpose.


Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established.

Do you pray before you start planning your child’s curriculum? Do you pray before your homeschool day? Homeschooling is your work. Dedicate this beautiful work to the Lord and watch your homeschool flourish!


Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

Our homeschool has roles. I’m the teacher. My oldest daughter is the teacher’s aide (she loves to help prep materials for lessons). My youngest daughter is the custodian; she loves to clean.

The key role is the principal of our school; God fills that role.

Colossians 3:23-24 reminds me that I’m serving the Lord. My work is for Him. He’s my boss and He is the one I’m accountable to.

PSALM 46:10 (ESV)

Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

Be still.

How often, as homeschool parents, are we still in the presence of our creator?

Do you pause and listen for His instruction?

I know sometimes I get so caught up in the teaching and doing, that I forget to still myself.

This scripture reminds me to slow down and wait for His instruction. The best lessons come when God speaks to my heart.


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

This scripture reminds me of the core essence of walking with the Lord and living the Christian life. I want my children to grow in these areas. But it’s also critical for me, to nurture these spiritual characteristics in myself as well.

Reading scripture and prayer is essential to a Christian’s spiritual growth. It’s through these practices that we draw closer to God.

Are you a busy homeschooling mom? Do you find it challenging to spend time with God every day? I have the best tool to help you focus on God and build your homeschool upon His truths!

I recently created the Spiritual Journal for the Christian Woman. This dated journal has 110 pages. There’s ample space to set monthly spiritual goals, record Bible readings, document prayers, and so much more!

I initially designed this journal for personal use. But as I used the journal, I experienced awesome spiritual growth. Within a couple months I knew I had to make it available to other Christian women.

This journal will help you deepen your relationship with God this year. Your homeschool life will blossom as you nurture your spiritual life!


Now that you have these five scriptures, take some time to meditate on them and explore how to apply them to your homeschool.

After you have embedded these scriptures in your heart, seek out additional scriptures for your homeschool. I’m certain you’ll be amazed by the words the Lord gives to you.
