My favorite Bible verses for homeschoolers are ready for the new school year or anytime you need a pick- me up I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Bible verses. Over the years as a homeschool mom, I suffered at times of sadness due to some situations I could not control. Often it came from a child who was struggling to learn a new concept or the feelings of being overwhelmed. We basically have three full-time jobs as homeschool moms. We are managers of our home – we are wives and mothers – and we are teachers. Each one of these as a standalone takes time and commitment. And – add to that, we are with our children, most of the time 24/7!

Before I jump in I want to mention a movie we are helping to promote this week and that is the movie Unseen. There are many resources that accompany this movie and I would recommend you view it alone or with your spouse. You need to decide if it is age appropriate for your children.

Best Bible Verses for Homeschoolers

Are you ready for inspiration? Here are some of the Bible verses I loved and you may consider starting a homeschool journal this year highlighting the verses that impact you, as well as wonderful memories so that you can create a wonderful keepsake to remember your homeschool year.

Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, The God who is our salvation. Psalms 68:19

This verse reminded me that I DO carry my burdens if I forget who is there to carry them for me. Do you give your burdens to the Lord? I try to do this daily. My impromptu prayer is, “Help me today, Lord to do Your will in all things.”

Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things [a]through Him who strengthens me.

Starting the day with prayer always makes it better. Often with little ones that is easier said than done, but remember—they do grow up and you will have time. For now, it may be helpful to commit some scriptures to mind and pray daily for help.

When I struggled with thinking I was doing all the work, this verse from Colossians 3:23 is a go-to  Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men…

What a relief that my efforts were not wasted! I mean come on – we know this intellectually but when you have babies and no one to help you with the day-to-day cleaning, cooking and teaching sometimes it seems like you are the most unappreciated person in the world!

I know many won’t admit it but the idea that what we are doing as homeschool parents does not make a difference flits through your mind. You watch kids you know from “good families,” who attend school and they seem fine. They seem to still love the Lord and they obey their parents. Maybe, I thought I am wasting my time – but then I remembered my goal. My goal was the theme, “As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

And then I read…

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

And this one

Proverbs 22:6  Train up a child [a]in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.

When we struggled I would turn to the Bible – the answer is always there!

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all [a]comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

I want to preface this scripture with something important to me and that is love. Without love all the training in the world means nothing. Your children must know that you love them. Do you tell them you love them? Do they tell you they love you back? Is it just something you say or something you mean? How can you instill love? By setting an example of selfless love and I believe homeschooling allows us the perfect opportunity to do this in an easy way.

When I felt at a loss –

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply [a]all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

And this one

Matthew 11:28-30  Come to Me, all [a]who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

My husband and I would have dinner dates at the beginning of each school year and pray for our children. We would decide which Fruit of the Spirit we wanted to encourage in each child that school year.

Galatians 5:22-23- But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law.

When my children struggled to listen – this is one of the Scriptures I would add to their copy work – not just that, I would have them explain it to me. You may need the help them understand with examples.

A fool rejects his father’s discipline, But he who regards reproof is sensible. Proverbs 15:5

Sometimes the kids were teased or homeschoolers, in general, are considered “uncool,” but then this verse dispels all worldliness –

1 Samuel 16:7  But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for [a]God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Proverbs 22:6  “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
