Your guide to raising your children in Christ, disciplining them in love, and navigating your role as both parent and teacher.

Christian Parenting

Parent and Child holding hands on the Bible

Discipline with love. Teach children about discipleship. Lead by example.

These are just some of the reasons that parents choose to homeschool their children. Homeschooling is an incredible tool for Christian parents, allowing you to seize control of decisions related to the education of your children as part of your ultimate goal of raising their children to love God, love people, and to be well-prepared to take advantage of every opportunity God gives them in the days ahead

Praying for your Children

There is a battle raging, and our children are high value targets to the evil one. Just imagine, though, what an entire generation of children who truly love God with all their hearts, souls and minds can do in this world! My prayer is that this free Prayer Guide and series will be as much of a help to you and your family as it has been to me and mine.

Parenting Children

Being a parent is one of the greatest privileges we could ever have in this life. 

Parenting children in today’s society can seem like it’s an uphill climb at times– if we are parenting our children God’s way, we are most certainly going against the flow of culture in many cases.  We want to parent our children in such as way as to help them understand that others are more important than themselves, to make good decisions, to seek wisdom, and to dig into God’s Word and learn to think biblically.

If you choose to homeschool your child as part of your parenting efforts, there are many Christian-based homeschool curriculums that align with these core values that also provide high-quality video courses and lesson plans.

Parenting Teens

As parents of teenagers, we have an incredible opportunity to help them as they make the transition from child to adult. We get to become the ones they go to for counsel and advice. We get to help them learn to think biblically and to set up their lives accordingly. 

With home school for high school, parents not only have a hands-on approach with teaching science, math, and literature but also helping your teen build character and grow in their faith.

Discipling Your Children

Your home is ground zero in passing on your faith and modeling the Christian life. So, discipling your children starts in the home. Parents are the ultimate teachers in charge of guiding children into a life of faith and helping to shape the moral fabric of their lives.

If you choose to homeschool, we have found the using a Biblically-based homeschool curriculum reinforces discipling along with the traditional subject matter.
